The website, www.alekhlaas.net, has declared that it want to create "the al Qaeda organisation in Britain". The British intelligence is said to be investigating into the matter.

"You don't ignore this sort of thing," Pauline Neville-Jones, the former head of the British joint intelligence committee told the BBC. "It may not be a threat from an existing cell... but it does represent a move in the propaganda game and the propaganda game is not something we should ignore," he added.

Neville-Jones also pointed out that it a struggle over ideology. According to the Mirror, the website has urged young Muslim men to fight against "infidels" such as "Brown and Blair".
