A tale of two VERY different Muslim families


NEWS that the family of Jihadi John are being protected by armed police at a cost of £5,000 a day — on top of the £400,000 they have claimed in benefits since they claimed asylum here 20 years ago — will horrify the many who wish they could have done more to report his activities.

Contrast their behaviour with the family of convicted fanatic Jamshed Javeed, from Manchester. His mother and father begged him not to join the terrorists, they hid his passport to stop him going to Syria and his sister made a secret recording of his vile rantings to pass on to the police.

A timely reminder that while the headlines are dominated by barbaric extremists, many moderate Muslims cherish and uphold British values.
