British Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday warned that his country needs new counter-terrorism tools to confront a threat currently assessed as “severe.”
Mr. Cameron described “the root cause of this threat” as “a poisonous ideology of Islamist extremism that believes in using the most brutal forms of terrorism to force people to accept a warped world view and to live in a mediaeval state.”
But then, the Prime Minister showed why Britain faces this threat. He added, “We should be clear that this has nothing to do with Islam.”
In fact, the “poisonous ideology” is known as shariah. And, while many Muslims don’t follow it, the authorities of Islam do.
Unless and until we stop blinding ourselves to this reality and protect Western freedoms and values against shariah, we are doomed.
