With each passing day since four bombs exploded in London on July 7,
people in Britain and elsewhere on the continent see more clearly that
their multicultural societies that have outlawed xenophobia and preached
and, by and large, practiced tolerance of diversity must find new ways
of dealing with extremists who kill. In an interview with BBC on July
13, British Home Secretary Charles Clarke stunned the world by giving
the first official indication that the four terrorists blew themselves
up during the attack. He said that European nations must stand up
against, "in a very strong way, anybody who preaches the kind of
fundamentalism that can lead four young men to blow themselves and
others up. We have got to root out those elements from within our
community that want to destroy it." Clarke, Britain's top law
enforcement official, said that authorities are looking closely "at the
relationship between the people suspected of having committed the
offenses and the wider network around them." Officials, including
Foreign Minister Jack Straw, have said the attacks bore the "hallmark"
of al-Qaida. While British leaders announced that they will restrict
immigration, Germany pledged to stiffen its anti-terror laws, France
reinforced border controls, and Italy was placed on alert, following a
warning from an Islamist extremist that Italy would soon be the target
of a bombing.
