It would appear that are terrorists are homegrown. They are radicalised by fanatics on line, among their friends and in their mosques.
In my opinion the problem is complex and requires a series of solutions.
- Integrate children into British society and British values of tolerance
2. Wipe out ISIS militarily, and Boko Haram, A Qaeda and similar groups.
3. Shut down internet sites spreading hate.
4. Hunt down the clerics and other purveyors of hatred and lock them up
5. Welcome Muslims and bring them on side. Most Muslims are law-abiding and hate terrorism as much as anyone else. If the trust is there they will report suspicious people to the police.
6. Educate all children to tolerate, respect, and value others.
7. Police the mosques and Madrassas to prevent radical propaganda
8. Shut down the hundreds of illegal schools
The most stupid thing the Tories are doing is introducing more religious schools – creating more segregation and apartness.
The other stupid thing is to cut back on the police so that they haven’t got the means to do the job.
Then there is the effect of making people feel unwelcome. That needs addressing.
What do you think?
