If you want Muslims to identify with Britain, don’t demonise and bomb them

IN HIS Birmingham speech about how to get Muslim people to identify with Britain, David Cameron announced nothing but further attacks on Muslims at home and abroad.

Given the Tories’ track record it is no surprise that his five year plan to deal with Islamic extremism at home pins all the blame on the Muslim community. Muslims, apparently, have not integrated sufficiently and they have allowed ‘extremist voices’ to dominate ‘within Muslim debate’.

The conclusion? A further clampdown on Muslim’s civil liberties is necessary in order to get them to identify more fully with British values of tolerance, democracy and free speech. The argument that ‘non-violent extremism’ can lead to ‘violent extremism’ opens the door to Orwellian levels of surveillance and harassment. Watch out. The world of thought crime is now with us.

Most of the speech was spent denying a connection between ‘radicalisation’ and Muslim’s ‘historic grievances’. The reason is simple; not content with demonising domestic Muslim communities, he is trying to clear the way for escalating the bombing campaign against Syria, a campaign it now turns out he has already started in secret and against the will of parliament.

Instead, the revamped ‘Prevent’ strategy – which came into force today – had become a “blunt hammer” which could be used to target innocent acts by young people.

Ms Shah said: “Some children refuse to eat at McDonalds because they have researched its links to Israel’s illegal settlements. Does that mean they are going to be extremists?
