The collective despair and anger at the lives snatched away by terrorism, most recently witnessed in the horror of Tunisia, France and Kuwait, continue to remind us how a perverse ideology is polluting the minds of people in our communities.
David Cameron should be able to look back on his record in office with a sense of pride and achievement. The Governments he has led have (partly) reve...
Research carried out by Pew Research Center has discovered what the global community fears the most - climate change. Overall, concerns about the envi...
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.
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.
A few weeks ago ISIS or at least ISIS inspired individuals reached a new stage in their development as an extreme radical Islamist group. They have cr...
If we stand in solidarity with one another, we defeat extremism. And if in 2025 we want to stop what we saw in Sousse two weeks ago, or what we saw in London ten years ago, then now is time to take some action.
Ten years on from 7/7, it's also how I continue to deal with what I experienced, as well as being a small part in potentially stopping an act of terror like that ever happening again.
To the authors of the statement, On 3 July, 2015, you released a statement confirming that you had joined the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) which yo...
As the 7/7 families hugged each other inside, and outside, the cathedral, nodding to each other in tearful support, I saw people who had all experienced an ordinary day turning into the worst possible nightmare of any parent, spouse or sibling.
Perhaps the most pleasing aspect to this book, therefore, is that the contributors have used their own freedom of expression to defend the free speech rights of others. It is a positive and creative response to a moment of destruction, and should give us cause for hope.
A decade on from 7/7 its a day that has and is shaping things to come for my generation as we all continue to feel it's consequences - but difficulties often prove to be the most testing of times, pushing you to make choices and the 7th of July 2005 was a difficult day for London.
Like many Londoners, 7 July 2005 began for me as a normal working day. I drove from my flat in Queens Park to Ealing where I was working as an estate agent. Morning briefing done, our team of sales negotiators 'hit the phones' to drum up business and book appointments. Then people's mobiles started beeping. Other offices started calling in. Something was going on in central London.
Islamic State, Cameron says, is neither Islamic nor a State. He's right - on the other hand, nor was the Irish Republican Army ever an army. So what? A name is no more than what someone chooses to be called. Does he really think that a single one of IS's recruits was attracted to its ranks because they were misled by its name?
What to do when our intelligence agency, MI5, state the terror threat level is severe? Iain Dale spoke to a member of the public on his drive show on LBC last week, who articulated why he believed we are looking at a generational fight against this particular breed of terrorist: IS. David Cameron went further and said they pose an 'existential danger.' The truth is probably somewhere in the middle.
Gunmen and bombers left a swathe of death and injury in three terror attacks in Tunisia, France and Kuwait this weekend. They took the lives of at least 60 people and injured more than 200. As the news poured in, the funerals were taking place of those slain in another crime motivated by hatred and designed to sow terror - the nine people shot in the Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
