YAY for Tony Blair!
Blair said Friday the UK's Human Rights Act would be amended if necessary to counter Islamic extremists in Britain.
The government also plans to draw up a list of extremist Web sites, book shops and organizations that promote these extremists.
"Let no one be in any doubt that the rules of the games are changing," Blair told a news conference in London.
The prime minister said the Government plans a one-month consultation period to determine new criteria for excluding and deporting people from the country.
Legislation, which is expected to be passed by the end of the year, will also outlaw "indirect incitement" of terrorism, Blair said.
The measure is seen as an effort to crack down on extremist Islamic clerics who glorify acts of terrorism. In addition, the law would ban the training of terrorist techniques in Britain or in any other country.
"These very self same people who were making those remarks yesterday are the people supporting the killing of wholly innocent people in Iraq, wholly innocent people in Afghanistan, innocent people anywhere in the world who want to live by the rules of democracy," CNN.
