Britain is No.1 in Europe… for online jihadist propaganda, report finds

Online jihadist propaganda gets more views in the UK than in any other European country, according to a new report.

Britain is No.1 in Europe… for online jihadist propaganda, report findsBritain is ranked fifth in the world scale of audiences accessing online extremist material, trailing behind Turkey, the US, Saudi Arabia and Iraq, the Policy Exchange study found.

The report suggests a majority (74 percent) of the 2,001 Britons it surveyed would support new laws to criminalize the “persistent consumption” of extremist material online.

In fact, while it is currently an offence to possess information that could assist a would-be terrorist under section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000, it is not illegal to possess material which glorifies terrorism.

Although the government has called on social media giants like Facebook and WhatsApp to crack down on jihadist material, former US military chief General David Petraeus, who wrote a foreword to the report, said current regulations aimed at tackling the propagation of online extremist material are “inadequate.”
