This murder is a reminder of how damaging a crime can be to the wider community... as a proud British Muslim I am not afraid to admit that seeing the story in the morning papers made me uneasy - just as I felt uneasy after the 7/7 bombings.

Thirteen British newspapers led with the Boston bombings the following day, which occurred not only on the same day as the Iraq attacks, but also on the day that Syrian warplanes carried out air raids on Damascus. It would appear that the Western media portrayal of bomb attacks around the world is skewed.

Like every anti-establishment movement before it, the al-Qaeda has become cool and recruiters know that and take care to cultivate this image. In our work, we found one terrorist recruiter who urged young male Muslims to join global jihad for "the adventure - it's better than a holiday"

Extradition: A Victory for Terror

Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed | Posted 25.11.2012 | UK Politics
Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed

Extradition, in other words, does nothing for the fight against terrorism. On the contrary, it is a self-serving red-herring designed to conceal the dubious systemic failures of British and American security agencies from public knowledge, while vindicating their unaccountable powers to override the rule of law.

Re-framing Britain

Against all my own expectations, the Olympic Games have emerged like unexpected blossom on a tree that only flowers erratically. When was the last time GB could stand so proudly tall? I'm reminded of the post war years when the response to the end of WW2 was to implement the Beveridge Report and build the welfare state. Am I comparing a few sporting triumphs to the construction of, amongst other things, the National Health Service? No - that would be pure bathos. But I am comparing a display of national character, where the choices that were made in a moment of coming together, were open, inclusive and dynamically forward looking.

Time for an Inclusive Politics

There will be differences of opinion and approaches in tackling this. But the constant demonisation of Muslims and their institutions by the media, and the lacklustre response by the Westminster political class to anti-Muslim intolerance, is not helpful.

Empowering the Moderate Muslim Majority is our Greatest Weapon Against Al Qaeda

A war on any noun is usually one doomed to failure; so far the war on terror is not proving to be the exception to the rule and probably the reason why the term has been dropped by the Obama administration. While those in the East suffer the most from the rise in Al-Qaeda inspired terrorism, those in the West are also constantly at risk. As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 looms closer perhaps it is a good time to reflect and evaluate the effectiveness of our approach in tackling this threat. Only with the Muslim community leading from the front will we defeat this scourge of global terror and replace hate with hope.
