Terrorism is the biggest threat to the security of our great country and the very people who make it great. 

We have recently seen terror attacks take place in the UK, killing multiple people. 

We’ve also witnessed terrible and needless terror attacks on our friends in Europe and beyond.

Everyone can agree that we can’t attribute terrorism synomynously with one religeon or set of beliefs. However, the first step to defeating terrorism and securing our country is accepting the fact that Islam has a big problem within itself when it comes to radicalisation, extremism and terrorism.

Extremism within both the UK and global Muslim communities is in a very small minority, but the extremist wing within Islam is big enough to cause an even bigger threat to the security of our nation. 

Our security services are the best in the world at monitoring and protecting us from potential terror attacks. However, we just can’t rely on our security services to foil terror attack plans forever.

We need to start focussing our attention on stopping radical islamic extremism being created at its source – the hate-preachers who radicalise those to commit such stupid attacks.

Hate-preachers target, manipulate, indoctrinate and radicalise young muslims (who’d otherwise turn out to be great people) to believe the same drivel as them.

The radicalised young Muslims are the ones that are being used to carry out terrorist attacks because the hate-preachers don’t have the balls to do it themselves.

Hate preachers are being allowed to thrive in three main areas:

1) Sheltered religeous institutions (within ghettoised Muslim communities).

2) Prisons.

3) The internet.

Firstly, in order to tackle radicalisation within sheltered religeous institutions in ghettoised Muslim communities we need to be able to grow some balls and get real.

Open communities have some sense of transparency. There’s challenge and investigation to what goes on within them. This could be in relation to a business, a church or a main social area. Nothing goes under the radar.

The problem with ghettoised Muslim communities is that they tend not to be open and transparent. They’re sheltered, leading to little challenge and investigation to what goes on within them.

Little challenge, investigation and transparency leaves an ideal place for hate-preachers to thrive.

This is why we, as a country, whether it be the media, politicians, security servcies or ordinary people (of all beliefs), need to be more critical and challenging of what goes on within these communities.

We can no longer be afraid to challenge what goes on within a community or religeous institution such as a mosque because we don’t want to be called discriminatory.

By doing this, we give hate-preachers no place to hide and radicalise. 

To some people this might be considered divisive, it is needed. Many Mulisms agree. 

Lives will be saved by restoring a. good dose of openess and challenge within every, single UK community.

Secondly, we need to get smart when ending the plight of radicalisation within prisons. 
We need to get the staff-prisoner ratios back to sensible levels.

This can be achieved by deporting all foreign criminals, ending the overcrowding we see today.

By doing this, our cracking prison officers can sufficiently monitor known extremists, preventing them from recruiting and manipulating others.

We also need to issue tougher and considerably longer sentences to hate-preachers and extremists.

They should be segregated from general population with limited contact with other prisoners. This would give them a massively reduced chance of radcalising others.

Thirdly, security services need the proper powers in order to clamp down on radicalisation online.

Extremist activity online is probably the most difficult to monitor. That’s we need to provide the powers and technology necessary for our security services to tackle radicalisation online.

I’m the biggest believer in individual freedoms and privacy but when it comes to tackling terrorism, in this day and age, our security services need all the appropriate help to stop hate-preachers thriving online.

Key points:

  • Accept Islam has a big problem with extremism and terrosism within itself.
  • Vastly increase the amount of challenge and investigation of what goes on within ghettoised Muslim communities.
  • Deport foreign criminals to rebalance staff-prisoner ratios.
  • Increase monitoring of extremists within prisons.
  • Lengthen prison sentences for convicted extremists.
  • Seperate convicted extremists from general population and vastly limit their interaction with others.
  • Continue to provide security services with the neccesary powers and technology to tackle radicalisation online.
