Muslim families in Britain are reporting their sons and brothers to police if they fear they will leave to fight in Syria, it was revealed today.

Scotland Yard has announced a large increase in arrests of world-be jihadists this year as it embarks on a more ‘sensitive’ and ‘less macho’ approach to fighting terrorism.

The London force says families, officers and community leaders are working better together – and this is being partly put down to an all-female leadership in Britain’s anti-terrorist police team.

More Syria-related arrests have happened since the start of 2014 than in all 2013, which police say is down to parents who would rather their sons were arrested in Britain than killed fighting.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Cressida Dick told The Times: ‘We’re getting lots of support from families who are ringing up and saying they are worried about their brother, son, sister sometimes, friend or indeed from other sources of information and intelligence.

'We [have] certainly got a lot more information and a lot more concerned people.

'We want to increase the proportion of people that would contact us, but we are getting a lot of calls for help.’

Miss Dick - Britain’s most senior woman officer - has two female deputies in Helen Ball, national co-ordinator of anti-terror investigations and Patricia Gallan, head of security and protection.

Interesting.  To find a silver lining in what is no doubt a tragedy for many families:  this demonstrates that not every muslim is willing to be a silent co-conspirator with the radical muslim terrorists.  That should get a lot more play than it does.

It won't. It fits neither side of the narrative.

To the left, Islam is the religion of peace, no harm no foul, they have their customs and we must respect them.
To the right, Islam is evil, Satan's horde here on Earth. None of them are good.

They are people. Simple as. It doesn't get headlines, people being just people.
