'The German people were told Jews were a threat. The same thing is happening here. This is a persecuting course of action that the Government has taken.

Even if Holocaust revisionism happens to be your thing, as it indeed is for many Muslims, comparing Britain's anti-terrorist measures to the policing methods employed by the NSDAP is a bit rich (actually, more than a bit).
