Muslims condemn Britain's plans to combat extremism
by Michael Holden and Paul Sandle
British Prime Minister David Cameron unveiled a new strategy on Monday to combat extremism, saying the battle was "perhaps the "defining one of this century", but his proposals were condemned by Muslims as demonizing their communities and set to fail.
The Counter-Extremism Strategy has been promised by Cameron's government for months, designed primarily to counter the ideology promoted by Islamic State militants, al Qaeda and other Islamists which the authorities say can lead young Britons onto a path of violence.
"Subversive, well-organized and sophisticated in their methods, Islamist extremists don't just threaten our security, they jeopardize all that we've built together – our successful multi-racial, multi-faith democracy," Cameron wrote on his Facebook website.
