Despite the brutality of the Syrian civil war, the Muslim Brotherhood has again become one of the main players on the ground, after years operating underground. I spoke with Ali Sadreddine Al-Bayanouni, the leader of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood from 1996 to 2010.

Ghanem threw himself into Muslim Brotherhood activities with vigor. He worked in close conjunction with UK lawyers pressurizing the Mubarak regime to release those imprisoned and tortured in the 1980s. While shaping the Islamist milieu in the UK and hobnobbing with some of the leading Islamists of his generation, he eventually became an influential figure within the organization.

No doubt we will soon get a more thorough idea of the process of indoctrination the killers underwent prior to them carrying out their pointless acts. Until then, don't give the attacks a meaning they don't deserve, and view those who wish to use the attacks to push their own abhorrent ideology with the purest contempt.

In the past two years, Western media coverage has focused on the growing popularity of Salafist jihadi groups like the Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) in Syria. These groups have become both an argument to intervene militarily, as well as a reason to stay out.

Out of all the places to meet Zuheir Salem, the number two man of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood (SMB), a David Brent-style office in Alperton, north London, is probably the least expected.

The fate of the Femen Tunisia activist Amina Tyler has shaken up and united thousands of women across the globe. Amina's act of civil disobedience has brought down upon her the lethal hatred of inhuman beasts, for whom killing a woman is more natural than recognising her right to do as she pleases with her own body.

Terrorists from all over the world are fighting a jihad for the return of the caliphate and the installation of sharia on a global scale. This is extremism; Islamist extremism.
