Thank you, Melanie Phillips for a superb and courageous piece of writing. It is the mark of a good journalist to be able to seek out the truths which others either cannot or will not see. There is a deafening silence in 21st century Britain regarding the threat posed by militant Islam and a concerted attempt at refusing to understand from exactly where that threat comes. Melanie gives us the uncomfortable truth - that Islamic terrorism stems from deep within the religion itself and the nature of its followers. It cannot be merely put down to poverty, and a denial of opportunities to Muslims. She exposes what we possibly know in our hearts, that Islamic fundamentalism is about conquest and a determined attempt to reorganise society along Islamic lines. She highlights the hapless way that the authorities turn a blind eye to all forms of non-violent extremism and in so doing, tacitly help that extremism to take root here in Britain. It's a well-written, well researched book and Britain might - just might - be a safer place for the fact she's written it. I think this is a must read for all who want to understand the true nature of the threat our country faces.
