Who is an extremist? UK faces legal challenge over strategy to stop radicals

To his detractors, including the British government, Salman Butt is an extremist whose views on Islam fly in the face of Britain’s values and help foster an atmosphere where young Muslims can be radicalised by militants.

Even though he is not accused of supporting militant groups or violence, the British authorities believe it is only by cracking down on activists like Butt and denying a forum for their ideas to be widely heard that the threat posed by jihadis and groups such as Islamic State can be countered.

    Ban muzzie immigration, destroy the mosques, mass deportations. No more pussy footing or the British are screwed.

      It sure would be a lot easier if there were no muslims in the civilized world.

    The problem isn’t extremists, the problem is traitors.

    When the police turn a blind eye to Muslim gangs raping thousands of English girls but use water cannons and batons on the EDL, England has a problem with traitors. When the courts turn a deaf ear to Muslim hate preachers then prosecute Englishmen for speaking out against Islamic threat, England has a problem with traitors. When the prime minister of England admits to importing millions of brown people to break the back of the white English voting block, England has a problem with traitors. When the authorities tolerate Muslims spitting on British soldiers on Remberance Day and persecute Tommy Robinson, England has a problem with traitors.

    The correct question is not ‘who is an extremist’. The question is ‘firing squad or gallows’?
