What do you get when you combine an extremist who claims to be a reformed moderate Muslim and a bunch of Neocons that claim to be friends of Islam? The answer is simple - dangerous confusion, wholesale deconstruction of a sacred religion and maligning of its people.
There is a deeper and more troubling context here. By sending the message to law-abiding Muslims that they are excluded from the simple privileges enjoyed by all other British people, we risk encouraging rather than suppressing extremism.
We need to see beyond our wounds. Islam teaches that those who suffer are the best ones to show the way to others. Like Bilal, from victims, we can rise and become guides and teachers.
The Srebrenica massacre is being commemorated at a time of Islamophobia and when hate crime against Muslims is not uncommon. When tragic events like...
We need dialogue between the police, security services and Muslim organisations to tackle threats and issues in local communities. This cannot happen if Muslim organisations feel targeted and are treated as being part of the problem instead of the solution.
In short, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community supports the Government in its genuine efforts to curb extremism and we pray that their efforts are successful so that the evil of extremism and terrorism is finished and so that all people of all faiths and beliefs can live together in peace and harmony.
Mr Cameron's speech was never going to please everyone, but has made a good number of those he was reaching out to feel even more alienated.
The job the PM has is to convince the Muslim community, especially parents, that integration into UK society is the best way to protect their children. Does the UK now need a US style pledge? It couldn't hurt.
David Cameron, when still the leader of the opposition, quoted Edmund Burke saying, "To make men love their country, their country ought to be lovable." He continued, "Integration has to be about more than immigrant communities, 'their' responsibilities and 'their' duties. It has to be about 'us' too - the quality of life that we offer, our society and our values."
As Britain's Muslim community became more frustrated due to the draconian nature of Prevent, and its insistence in tarnishing mainstream Muslim organisations, speakers and activists as "extreme" for espousing normative Islamic beliefs, it was inevitable that a collective movement would emerge against it.
There's no such thing as the British Dream, of course. Once you've ruled the world only to lose the lot, there's not really anywhere to go from there,...

I will never forget 7/7, none of us here in Britain ever will and neither should we. I remember exactly where I was on that fateful day. A 14 year old...
More than that though - we should not encourage our leaders to stoke these tendencies in the name of being seen to do something. There are enough problems with some in the media who like to sell newspapers on the back of encouraging mistrust and division - we certainly don't need our political leaders making it worse - no matter how tough their job is right now.
The legacy left by these events has however been more far-reaching than might have been expected, having had something of a profound impact on how we live our everyday lives. From more security checks at airports and the increased monitoring of social media through to the new counter-terror measures requiring public sector workers to play a greater role in combating extremism, and schools being required to teach 'British values', 7/7's impact has been significant.
It's a declutter Ramadan party and your invited by getting rid of everything that didn't matter, I made room for everything that did. Thirty day Ramadan Goal 2015, I am more than often persuaded to do things I don't feel like doing and that is clearing out my junk.
