The beginning or the statement lays out the events and she goes on to say that 4 main points have been identified to tackle the problem I will focus on these points:
First, while the recent attacks are not connected by common networks, they are connected in one important sense. They are bound together by the single evil ideology of Islamist extremism that preaches hatred, sows division and promotes sectarianism.
It is an ideology that claims our Western values of freedom, democracy and human rights are incompatible with the religion of Islam. It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth.
This is the first and biggest problem is denial of reality – in an attempt to be politically correct Theresa May tells us that the ideology is a perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth.
The truth is that Islamic extremism is NOT a perversion of Islam or a perversion of the truth – the Koran clearly states that believers must kill, enslave and rape non believers and that is the will of God, for a muslim to deny this is to make them an apostate and also subject to death. THE PROBLEM IS ISLAM. The Koran preaches hatred, division and promotes sectarianism.
If a muslim disagrees with this they must leave the religion and they must be helped and protected from attack that is the only way you are going to defeat the ideology.
Defeating this ideology is one of the great challenges of our time, but it cannot be defeated by military intervention alone.
It will not be defeated by the maintenance of a permanent defensive counter-terrorism operation, however skillful its leaders and practitioners.
It will only be defeated when we turn people’s minds away from this violence and make them understand that our values – pluralistic British values – are superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate.
This is may be a back-handed acknowledgement that there is a separation between the teaching of the Koran and British values – however, again it ignores fundamental Islamic belief that IT is superior to all others because it is God’s will and no one can be more superior to God – all non believers are therefore inferior, so why would they believe anything people attempt to teach them as being better?
Second, we cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed.
Yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies that provide internet-based services provide
We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning.
Here is the power grab – the western governments have been trying to gain control of the internet. After Trump election win they have had to resort to pressuring internet companies to follow the globalist line and censor or interrupt all anti globalist commentary and reporting – of course they did not do this for any or the actual threats or dangers like terrorist, pedophiles etc. Here we see why, they need something substantial to bring a law into place. Now they feel they have it.
And we need to do everything we can at home to reduce the risks of extremism online.
Third, while we need to deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online, we must not forget about the safe spaces that continue to exist in the real world.
Yes, that means taking military action to destroy Isis in Iraq and Syria. But it also means taking action here at home.
While we have made significant progress in recent years, there is – to be frank – far too much tolerance of extremism in our country.
So we need to become far more robust in identifying it and stamping it out across the public sector and across society.
That will require some difficult, and often embarrassing, conversations.
Embarrassing??? who cares about that when women and children are being slaughtered in our midst? This is an extremely weak statement and suggests that nothing will be done at all because there is fear to confront the real issues.
But the whole of our country needs to come together to take on this extremism, and we need to live our lives not in a series of separated, segregated communities, but as one truly United Kingdom.
I would like to refer to my previous blog here #Multiculturalism is dead? or is it just a #Muslim issue – the only separated and segregated communities in the UK are the Muslims, they refuse to integrate and they refuse to take responsibility of this problem – their loyalty is not with Britain is with Islam and they will continue to keep themselves seperated from all non muslims. All other communities have integrated, it has taken time but they have been successful as a result of their own efforts and desire to be a part of the British community.
Fourth, we have a robust counter-terrorism strategy, that has proved successful over many years.
But as the nature of the threat we face becomes more complex, more fragmented, more hidden, especially online, the strategy needs to keep up.
We can expect rhetoric to increase over the coming weeks to censor the internet.
So in light of what we are learning about the changing threat, we need to review Britain’s counter-terrorism strategy to make sure the police and security services have all the powers they need.
And if we need to increase the length of custodial sentences for terrorist-related offences – even apparently less serious offences – that is what we will do.
This is a vague intent and by no means a commitment
Since the emergence of the threat from Islamist-inspired terrorism, our country has made significant progress in disrupting plots and protecting the public.
But it is time to say ‘Enough is enough’.
Well I guess that is better than nothing to say ‘Enough is enough’ – but with an election in a few days, she knows she will not win if she says anything different.
The only action that will be taken with any certainty is censorship of the internet. It is likely that there will be no guidelines (or guidelines of the EU which are not defined) that will clearly determine what is extremist content, and thereby it will be open to interpretation to suppress speech generally.
There is a dawning realisation that more needs to be done in the muslim community – however, she completely ignores that the issue is with in the religious text itself, and that ultimately every muslim is going to have to decide – stay in this country and leave Islam, or leave this country and live in a country that is muslim. You can’t have both.
To suggest that a Muslim can believe that killing homosexuals, non believers and apostates is God’s will AND see British values of tolerance and acceptance as being superior to that – is like suggesting a snake can be more than just a snake and not to kill you if you rescue it from the mouth of a mongoose.
