In further attempts to thwart future terrorist attacks in Britain, two radical Islamist groups will be banned from operating in the country. Hizb
ut-Tahrir and the successor organization of al Muhajiroun (a group that celebrated the Sept. 11 2001, attacks on the United States but is meant to
have disbanded) are the 2 groups who will not be allowed to operate in Britain.
LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will ban two radical Islamist groups from operating in the country as part of a raft of measures to be introduced
following bomb attacks on London last month, Prime Minister Tony Blair said on Friday.
He said his government would outlaw Hizb ut-Tahrir, an organization that says it is dedicated to creating an Islamic caliphate centered on the Middle
East but insists it does not support violence.
Blair said the government would also ban a successor organization to al Muhajiroun, a group that celebrated the Sept. 11 2001, attacks on the United
States but is meant to have disbanded.
"We will proscribe Hizb ut-Tahrir and the successor organization of al Muhajiroun," Blair told a news conference.

This is yet another step taken by Britain to avoid future attacks including strict deportation guidelines for fanatics who encourage terrorism. I
believe this to be a direct retaliation to the recent al-Qaeda threats to the UK and the US.
