Cameron's call to Muslim mothers to learn English to help beat fanatics as 700 Britons are now believed to have travelled to Syria to join jihadis
by Glen Owen
David Cameron will tomorrow launch a new drive to counter Islamic extremism by calling on more Muslim women to learn English – in the hope that they will turn into more powerful moderating forces.
The Prime Minister has privately argued that one of the main reasons why young Muslim males fall under the spell of fanatics is because their mothers have too much of a subordinate role within their communities to argue against the influence of the extremists.
He is expected to call for more Muslim women to learn the language so they can make advances in the job market and take on a more influential role.
