Embarrassment for Cameron - he thanked the Islamic group he wants banned

Sky News reports an embarrassment for David Cameron:

A radical Islamic group that Tory leader David Cameron wants banned was thanked last year in a private letter - from David Cameron.

The revelation by Sky News will be seen as an embarrassment after the Conservative leader's question about Hizb ut Tahir in the House Of Commons was seen as drawing blood from Gordon Brown in his first Prime Minister's Questions.

Mr Cameron asked why the group had not been banned for allegedly urging its supporters to "kill Jews".

...Sky can reveal that in August last year Mr Cameron's office wrote to Hizb ut Tahir in reply to a letter from the group and thanked it for its comments over the war in Lebanon.
