Britain to tackle 'Islamist extremism' after soldier's murder
By Andrew Osborn SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Britain plans to classify "Islamist extremism" as a distinct ideology, British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Tuesday, as part the government's response to the murder of a soldier on a busy London street. A court heard that one of them said it was an "eye for an eye" and revenge for what they considered to be Britain's wars against Muslims. "These tragedies were a wakeup call for government and wider society to take action to confront extremism in all its forms, whether in our communities, schools, prisons, Islamic centers or universities." "Islamist extremism" would, for the first time, be classified as a distinct ideology to guard against it being confused with traditional religious practice, he said. The new definition would make it clear that "Islamist extremism" was a distorted interpretation of Islam that betrayed the religion's principles and tried to sow division.

Of course, that's par for the course, what pisses me off is the PC bullsh!te, they are too scared to call a spade and spade and offending anyone, except their own people. The police will arrest a little old granny of 85 years, slap her in handcuffs and drag her off to the nick for shouting to a group of Muslins "Go back to your own country," but refuse to arrest Muslims who shout at British soldiers calling them murderers. My Granddad must be spinning in his grave.
