…. the distinction between violent and non-violent extremism is merely operational. Islamists feel morally free to achieve their aims peacefully or violently, publicly or secretly, whichever suits.
They follow a revolutionary doctrine, so there are no moderates. Islamism is declaredly determined to overthrow our way of life.

I’m certainly not going to dilute my way of life to accommodate them, and those politicians who think that I should, are in for a big surprise. [The Telegraph] Read more
