While President Barack Obama stubbornly and foolihly refuses to admit that the war on terror is essentially a war against Islamic extremists, British Prime Minister Dave Cameron has chosen a less politically correct, more honest, stance.
As reported, in part, at Reference 1:
David Cameron today pledged to make Britain ‘a lot less’ tolerant towards Islamic extremists who whip up hatred against the West.Hear, hear, Mr. PM!
In a major speech on terrorism, the Prime Minister argued that Britain has been too ‘passive’ towards organizations and preachers who poison the minds of young Muslims.
Mr. Cameron said Britain needs to be less tolerant and more judgmental when faced with ideologies that threaten the country’s basic values.
Signaling a major departure from Labor’s softly-softly approach, he suggested that to ‘belong’ in Britain, individuals must sign up to core values such as freedom of speech, the rule of law and democracy.
In a barely-concealed attack on the opposition, he will say:
‘It’s time to turn the page on the failed policies of the past.’
The Prime Minister pledged to end all public funding for groups which give succor to extremist views. And he called for action to ban extremists from radicalizing young people in universities, prisons and internet chat rooms.
At a security conference in Munich today, Mr. Cameron said: ‘Frankly, we need a lot less of the passive tolerance of recent years and much more active, muscular liberalism.’
How refreshing to hear a leader of the free world tell it exactly “like it is.”
Meanwhile in the United States, our Commander-in-chief and President continues to ignore the truth, refusing even to use the word Islam in conjunction with discussions about terrorism.
What will it take to awaken Obama to the truth?
