“Poisonous Islamist Extremist Ideology”

 In Foreign

British Prime Minister David Cameron has come out swinging after his Tory Party won the recent British elections by a wide margin.  He plans to propose a wide-ranging set of laws to the UK National Security Council later this month that are designed to inflict death blows to radical Islamists in England.

“For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone.

“It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance.

“This Government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach. As the party of one nation, we will govern as one nation, and bring our country together.

“That means actively promoting certain values. Freedom of speech. Freedom of worship. Democracy. The rule of law. Equal rights regardless of race, gender or sexuality.

“We must say to our citizens: this is what defines us as a society.

“To belong here is to believe in these things. And it means confronting head-on the poisonous Islamist extremist ideology. Whether they are violent in their means or not, we must make it impossible for the extremists to succeed.” British Prime Minister David Cameron

A massive counter-terrorsim effort

Has England had enough? Maybe. According to the Daily Mail, the proposed changes would be:

1. The introduction of banning orders for extremist organisations who use hate speech in public places, but whose activities fall short of proscription. (translation: trying to stop those who continually make threats to ‘overthrow democracy.’)

2.  New Extremism Disruption Orders to restrict people who seek to radicalize young people;(translation- stopping imams and other teachers at schools, mosques, and other places who are known to radicalize citizens)

3. Powers to close premises where extremists seek to influence others; (translation – the buildings listed above)

4. Strengthening the powers of the Charity Commission to root out charities who misappropriate funds towards extremism and terrorism;

5. Further immigration restrictions on extremists;

6. A strengthened role for Ofcom (Britain’s version of the FCC) to take action against channels which broadcast extremist content.

Balancing Act

Generally speaking, the more laws created by a society, the less freedom is available to the citizens. Britain has very nearly lost its ability to fight back without ratcheting down their society, simply by the political correctness that has allowed jihadists to flourish for many years.

Disarming their people of everything from guns to knives has left them virtually defenseless. Laws that already exist which propagate political correctness and punish free speech have corrupted their entire society by teaching a generation of Brits that they should be quiet about Muslims and punishes them if they do not do so. Sharia courts that operate separately from courts of the Crown have divided the people with rigid effectiveness, and endangered women’s rights. Enclaves of Muslims have closed off sections of the country and no ‘infidels’ are welcome there.

England has a long road to recovery ahead. Can they do it and still maintain freedom? It’s something America should pay close attention to.

“It is difficult to make our material condition better by the best laws, but it is easy enough to ruin it by bad laws.” Theodore Roosevelt

      The horrific mistake that BPM Cameron is not identifying Islam/muslim as the problem instead of 'extremism and extremists'. As we have seen with Obama, depending who is in power at the time, Christians and any group of people who are conservative can falsely be named as extremists.
      If you claim to be brave enough and good enough to fight evil, you MUST name the evil.
