For those wondering on the title and subject of this poll, the government is planning to introduce legislation requiring child minders and nurseries to spy on toddlers and report those considered to be at risk of becoming terrorists.

They are looking for ways of identifying hostile jihadists, specifically with minimal intrusion into, say, your lives. So when nursery staff become aware of a family whose children spout jihadi rhetoric at an early age, which apparently has been observed, it is an important clue for the police.

Whereas after years of domestic jihadi terrorism alerts you are still, with polls like this, mocking and obstructing any attempt to defend Britain. I take it increasingly personally.

Incidentally (O/T) in a few months we will hopefully all be pooling our resources to keep UKIP out. So I have to hold my nose and vote for one of these other corrupt shits yet again. But I'm increasingly minded just to leave the country, like the French Jews are doing, and let UKIP do whatever it does.

You have no case against Israel if Muslims make it a necessary refuge. And you should be ashamed of posts like these.

but terrorist toddlers?

Its not "mocking and obstructing any attempt to defend Britain" but questioning hysteria and election politics.

The inequalities in law and actions that isolate individuls while spreading paranoia are more likely to lead to radicalisation, not less.

I can see that you are blinded in your anger at the hostage situation that arose in the Kosher supermarket in Paris.

Before you consider Israel as a safe refuge, realise that a century ago the majority of the Muslim world was a safe refuge, before the zionist project ruined it.

Building a fort on the corpses of the locals doesn't make a safe haven.

It wasn't, and the "zionist project" bought land in Palestine and offered the Jewish refugees of Russia, eastern Europe and latterly of Germany and Vichy France, somewhere that they would hopefully not be hunted down and killed. If that to you justifies expulsions and persecutions across the Middle East, bully for you. Yes, a lot of Jews lived in the ME and Africa, paid their jizya, and as the European exportation of its own brand of anti-semitism took hold there were a lot of pogroms. Thank you so much for your protection.

"bought land"makes it innocuous. The vast majority of Israeli land was acquired through forced expulsion and pillage.

But I cannot see how that can be linked to this topic - toddlers can neither purchase land nor force the natives off it.

I stick by my view that those that get radicalised are but often those that get try to compensate for a lack of Islamic upbringing when they reach their teens/later years.
