The fact of the matter is that Muslims have always spoken out against groups like ISIS. Yet it is worth noting that after these extremist groups act, Muslims across the globe (and in particular the Western world) are left stranded in the centre of an imperial dichotomy which labels them according to "fundamental" and "moderate" Muslims.
Labour would be best rethinking this potential pledge before it is announced. A cut in tuition fees from £9,000 to £6,000 will not help Labour successfully captured the student vote. It will instead send a message to students that they agree with the tuition fees policy implemented by the coalition.
Did anyone spot the commitment in both the main parties' conference speeches to create a new workforce of thousands of young people - millions even - paid just £2.73 an hour? Actually the initiative wasn't just spotted but welcomed, alongside promises on zero hours contracts and the National Minimum Wage.
Yes, the conference in Manchester has had a certain air of expectation that Labour will win in 2015. There is not, however, the excitement that one would expect at the Labour conference preceding their entry to government, and Miliband's speech did not inspire in the way a man giving his last speech as Leader of the Opposition should do.
Young people aren't joining political parties at the same rate as they were in the past. They don't vote at local, European or general elections in great numbers. You'd be forgiven for thinking that young people didn't care about politics or the direction of the country. A lot of people did think just that, right up until the Scottish referendum blew that myth out of the water.
At GCSE, I studied Steinbeck and Priestley. My first year at A-Level, I studied Browning, Auden, Fitzgerald and Hosseini. It was only in the second year that I studied Carter and Bronte as well as Marlowe. Work by female authors took up less than a third of my secondary education space - and unequal gender representation is set to increase.
I think it is clear that the majority of people living in Scotland believe in the benefits of free education, of a publicly funded NHS and of socially progressive welfare policies. Many of such ideas originated in a post-war United Kingdom. However, it appears to me that England is the one diverging sharply from this united ideological status quo.
The main parties shouldn't be tripping over themselves to out-do UKIP, allowing the far-right to set the debate, and dance to Farage's tune. Instead politicians should be focusing on one of the most neglected demographics, giving what will soon be the people running society a sense of hope and inclusion - regardless of their country of origin. Politicians instead, should be chasing young voters.
On Sunday, I was in London preparing myself to go to Sheffield. I checked the news and the first photo I noticed is of my aunt and cousin along with their children. They were crying. This was scary enough for me to start unconsciously crying. Reading the news, I know that my family have no more homes or are dead.
