In dealing with the Islamic ideology ~ there are some of the issues that we are going to have to face ~ there is the fact that from its inception Islam has been foisted on those who then became its followers, and from this ~ you can say permission has been granted or the idea is that a similar force or terror ~ should be used to bring people under the rule of Islam again.
There was an interesting conversation where a British Indian [non-Muslim] journalist, who was interviewing British [likely] Pakistani radical Islamist ~ and she asked him ~ when the Muslims sought to convert India ~ a lot of people died. And he answered ~ but when they took the sword out ~ we had Islam. A clear acknowledgement of the violence ~ needed or used to spread Islam. The idea being ~ that once the violence is over then they would appreciate these new Islamic controls.
The phrase those outside of Islam are 'ignorant'.
Conversely is also the understanding that if violence or terror is not used ~ then people will not follow it.
Its the belief is that any country or peoples would be grateful to have Islam ~ thereby justifying its enforcement ~ as a result there is likely no religion on earth ~ ever to have killed more in the name of religion ~ than Islam. And a lot of people who may not be willing to take part in the violence ~ are willing to get out of the way ~ and allow what happened to them ~ happen to another group of people. Blinded by Islam [Obviously some hope that people would come to submit to Islamic rule willingly.. and if they don't what is the belief?]
What is happening in the UK and likely across Europe with the radicalization ~ is first we have seen the control of women ~ a sudden shift from cultural or regional dress to a uniformity ~ in line with the Gulf Arab states.
It started with more headscarves ~ worn a specific way [outside of the traditional form] ~ then it moved to all black and then the burqa. So then we have to look to the men. First they control the women ~ then they look outside to control the area ~ to bring uniformity into the immediate area [which is where some areas are now] ~ logically next is wider society.
Some people think that they can negotiate with it ~ where sillily the determining factor is whether you are deemed to be 'racist' or not. But to do this you must both be holding the same set of cards.
Yes there are many shades ~ but the shade that really matters is Islam and its laws. And a society which wants to remain free ~ must understand its goals and its methods.
If anything at all it should not be funded by the public purse.
Money from the Government's £63m-a-year anti-radicalisation budget has been given to the very extremist organisations it should have been confronting.
The Prevent strategy was launched four years ago to counter home-grown terrorism, but the Government now admits it failed on many fronts.
Announcing sweeping changes to its tactics and remit, Home Secretary Theresa May said the programme had not lived up to expectations.
In a statement to the House of Commons, she said Prevent had "failed to tackle the extremist ideology that not only undermines the cohesion of our society, but also inspires would-be terrorists to seek to bring death and destruction to our towns and cities".
Signalling a change to the way in which many anti-radicalisation programmes are funded, Mrs May said: "In a world of scarce resources, it is clear that Prevent work must be targeted against those forms of terrorism which pose the greatest risk to our national security.
"Currently, the greatest threat comes from al Qaeda, and those they inspire."
Vowing to correct the mistakes of the past, the Home Secretary said the programme - while trying to reach out to those at risk of radicalisation - had sometimes funded the very extremist organisations that Prevent should have been tackling.
(Prevent has) failed to tackle the extremist ideology that not only undermines the cohesion of our society, but also inspires would-be terrorists to seek to bring death and destruction to our towns and cities.

She added: "The majority of Prevent resources and efforts will therefore be devoted to stopping people from joining or supporting al Qaeda, its affiliates, or like-minded groups."
The review found "no evidence to indicate widespread, systematic or deliberate funding of extremist groups, either by the Home Office or by local authorities or police forces".
But it conceded that "there have been cases where groups whom we would now consider to support an extremist ideology have received funding".
The revised strategy will include better communication of Government security and foreign policies to rebut claims made about them.
It will also see an emphasis and more projects in schools, communities and the criminal justice system to enable "understanding of and challenge to terrorist ideology".
Programmes to support vulnerable people and stop radicalisation - which have been criticised for being disproportionate, intrusive and restricting free speech - are "essential", according to the Government.
