The "religion of peace" strikes again

Somehow I find this quite interesting...

AL-QAEDA is secretly recruiting affluent, middle-class Muslims in British universities and colleges to carry out terrorist attacks in this country, leaked Whitehall documents reveal.

A network of “extremist recruiters” is circulating on campuses targeting people with “technical and professional qualifications”, particularly engineering and IT degrees.

Yesterday it emerged that last week’s London bombings were a sophisticated attack with all the devices detonating on the Underground within 50 seconds of each other. The police believe those behind the outrage may be home-grown British terrorists with no criminal backgrounds and possessing technical expertise.

A joint Home Office and Foreign Office dossier — Young Muslims and Extremism — prepared for the prime minister last year, said Britain might now be harbouring thousands of Al-Qaeda sympathisers.

Lord Stevens, the former Metropolitan police chief, revealed separately last night that up to 3,000 British-born or British-based people had passed through Osama Bin Laden’s training camps.

Now maybe I dont quite get it, but how is it this easy for a religion to "recruit" people for their cause? I know if someone came to me and said "Dude, the bible says that God really wants you to slaughter innocent people in his name or you will go to hell" I might end up slaughtering him. Which makes it really confusing that anyone who claims that Islam is a religion of peace could be swayed to violence so easily. Now one must assume that they do fail with some intelligent people, which leads me to the next question.....WHY HAS NO ONE REPORTED THESE PEOPLE??? The blood of many Brits is on these assholes hands. Not just the bombers, but the people who KNEW that someone was trying to recruit them for a terrorist organization and didn't report them to the police to be arrested.
