Among them is our old pal, Imam Abu Izzadeen, who last surfaced in a famous video yelling at Home Secretary John Reid about his nerve in coming into `a Muslim neighborhood' and saying that British Muslims need to cooperate with the authorities tocombat Islamic terrorism in their adopted country.
The six were indicted on charges of inciting others to commit acts of terrorism and on charges in connection with terrorist fund raising.
Izzadeen is already facing charges for making speeches inciting terrorism during sermons in Birmingham.
According to Scotland Yard, a number of searches were going on in connection with the investigation.
"The arrests form part of a long-term pro-active and complex investigation into alleged incitement and radicalisation for the purposes of terrorism, as well as alleged provision of financial support for international terrorism," a Yard spokesperson said.
In view of al Qaeda threats to unleash a major attack on Britain as Blair leaves office, hopefully some of these arrests will provide some needed intel on Britain's fifth column in its Muslim community.
