Seriously, has this guy taken even one minute to research the violent Muslim terrorists he wants to negotiate with?
One of Britain’s most senior policemen has said that the Government should negotiate with Al-Qaeda in a strategy to end its campaign of violence.
In an interview with The Guardian, Sir Hugh Orde, head of the Police Service of Northern Ireland, said that he could not think of a single terrorism campaign in history that ended without negotiation.
Sir Hugh, reportedly a front-runner to be the next commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said that 30 years of tackling the IRA convinced him that policing – detecting plots and arresting people – was not enough alone to defeat terrorists.
He told the newspaper: “If you want my professional assessment of any terrorism campaign, what fixes it is talking and engaging and judging when the conditions are right for that to take place.
“Is that a naive statement? I don’t think it is … It is the reality of what we face. If somebody can show me any terrorism campaign where it has been policed out, I’d be happy to read about it, because I can’t think of one.”
Sir Hugh admits that negotiating with terrorists means “thinking the unthinkable” and said that some of the biggest risks his officers took were talking to people that “historically they would not have dreamed of talking to”.
He cites his meeting in 2004 with the Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams as an example of how one-time enemies can become partners in peace.
Naive is supremely kind, completely deluded follows close behind. For a policemen (a high ranking one to boot) this guy shows a remarkable lack of investigative powers. Know you’re enemy!
Either you accept their faith and way of life ABSOLUTELY and COMPLETELY or you die! Those are your choices, there is no middle ground, no compromise and no negotiating. That is their end-goal and Islam even condones and promotes lying and deceit and in the form of false “negotiations” with the enemy until these goals are reached and they have the upper hand. Then it’s game over.
You/me/we are the enemy to them. Plain and simple.
