Britain: ‘Toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists’

Creating an image of an enemy within and “home-grown terrorism” – Children, extremist ideas and the British establishment

Home Secretary Theresa May presented the government’s Counter Terrorism and Security Bill to Parliament on Wednesday, November 26, declaring: “We are in the middle of a generational struggle against a deadly terrorist ideology. These powers are essential to keep up with the very serious and rapidly changing threats we face.”

The website Moon of Alabama contained the following item yesterday:

The British government has been taken over by lunacy reports the Telegraph:

Nursery school staff and registered childminders must report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists, under counter-terrorism measures proposed by the Government. The directive is contained in a 39-page consultation document issued by the Home Office in a bid to bolster its Prevent anti-terrorism plan.
The document accompanies the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill, currently before parliament. It identifies nurseries and early years childcare providers, along with schools and universities, as having a duty “to prevent people being drawn into terrorism”.

The consultation paper adds: “Senior management and governors should make sure that staff have training that gives them the knowledge and confidence to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and challenge extremist ideas which can be used to legitimise terrorism and are shared by terrorist groups.

“They should know where and how to refer children and young people for further help.”

“Refer to further help …” What might such “help” include? Some hints to such “help” may be disguised in some other Telegraph headlines:

A central registration for unruly young children “terrorists” might come in handy when the British establishment is looking for new material for its seemingly favourite pastime.

One wonders who came up with this idea …

    Under the British government’s latest anti-terrorism bill, nursery school staff and registered child minders are required to report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists. Senior management must provide training to give staff the knowledge and confidence to identify children and risk of being drawn into terrorism and refer them for help. No kidding.
