Hate preacher: Abu Hamza al-Masri was deported to the USA for extremist teachings and to stand trial. Hate preachers and extremists websites will be tackled through new measures proposed by a task force set up in the wake of the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich. A report published by the task force gives an official definition of Islamist radicalism, highlighting it as a distinct ideology not to be confused with traditional religious practice. The taskforce, set up by David Cameron to tackle domestic terror threats, has already published a series of proposals, including a new Terror and Extremism Behaviour Order. The order - instantly dubbed a Tebo - would allow civil authorities to take action against hate preachers who seek to radicalise others. Other measures could include filters to block radicalising Internet websites, even if they are hosted abroad, and new powers to deal with organisations which raise funds for terror or spread extremist messages under the guise of charities. The task force, led by Home Secretary Theresa May, makes clear that the problem that must be dealt with is not simply violent extremism itself, but activities which radicalise others in a way which might lead them into extremist action.
