The article outlines some of the dangers of locking up people for incitement to terrorism - as happened last week with Abu Izzedeen and five others. Not that I agree one iota with anything they said of course. But by putting these men in prison we risk legitimising their ideas in the eyes of their believers. The now outlawed al-Muhajiroon, of which all six were members, used say that it was only when they were persecuted by authorities they felt on the right path.
The ill-founded, Manichean rubbish spewed by this lot (at least the little we've been able to see) was poorly thought out, even by violent jihadist standards. They should be derided and held in contempt. By jailing them we risk adding to the glamour and mystique, which all violent radical movements depend on.
