Britain: The "Struggle of Our Generation"
by Samuel Westrop
On July 20, Prime Minister David Cameron outlined his government's plans to counteract Islamic extremism, which he described as the "struggle of our generation."
In a speech before Ninestiles School, in the city of Birmingham, Cameron articulated a view of the Islamist threat that, just a couple of years ago, few else in British politics would have dared to support.
In a report for BBC Radio 4, the journalist John Ware described Cameron's speech, and the government's proposed counter-extremism measures, as "something no British government has ever done in my lifetime: the launch of a formal strategy to recognize, challenge and root out ideology."
