UK: David Cameron Declares War on Islamic Extremism
by Soeren Kern
Prime Minister David Cameron has outlined a new five-year plan to fight Islamic extremism in Britain.
The strategy — the specifics of which will be unveiled in the coming months — rests on four pillars: challenging the ideology of Islamism; confronting those who promote Islamic extremism; encouraging moderate Muslims to speak up and be heard; and improving Muslim integration.
Cameron, however, has not offered a precise definition of "extremism," and it remains unclear how his government will balance efforts to silence Islamic extremists with the right to free speech.
