I'm surprised no one has apprised you of it.  We work with Islamists like 
the Muslim Association of Britain in the Stop the War Coalition and a number 
of its leading figures left the association to stand for Respect.  That 
makes us bad.

Yeah, no concentration camps - but Belmarsh, torture flights, detention 
without trial, Guantanamo etc etc.  Blair is desperately trying to split the 
antiwar movement by targeting Muslims and his government is rather pissed 
off with the appointed 'moderates' for refusing to go into the 'community' 
and say proselytise for New Labour and its imperialist axis with Bush.
