Instead, Mr Blair urged governments to ‘be honest’ and admit that the problem was more widespread. he wrote: “There is a problem within Islam – from the adherents of an ideology which is a strain within Islam…We have to put it on the table and be honest about it. Of course there are Christian extremists and Jewish, Buddhist and Hindu ones. But I am afraid this strain is not the province of a few extremists. It has at its heart a view about religion and about the interaction between religion and politics that is not compatible with pluralistic, liberal, open-minded societies…At the extreme end of the spectrum are terrorists, but the world view goes deeper and wider than it is comfortable for us to admit. So by and large we don’t admit it.”
The former PM’s remarks came as David Cameron prepared to make a Commons statement about the Woolwich murder on 2nd of June afternoon. The statement would come just hours after the first meeting of the Prime Minister’s Tackling Extremism and Radicalisation Task Force (TERFOR) – made up of senior Ministers, MI5, police and moderate religious leaders. Whitehall sources said that it would be a ‘preliminary meeting’ to draw up the agenda for a full meeting within days. The group, which the Muslim Foreign Office Minister Baroness Warsi, would examine new powers to muzzle hate preachers.
In his article, Mr Blair, suggested that ‘the problem within Islam’ could start to be tackled by ‘educating children about faith here and abroad’. Sir Malcolm Rifkind, a former Foreign Secretary and chairman of the Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee, said: “Much of what Tony Blair says is sensible The Islamic terrorists who kill people have the silent support of many more in their community who share their ideology, if not their methods. But even combined, they represent only a small minority of British Muslims, and we must never forget that. However, he appears to be still trying to justify the Iraq War rather than acknowledging that that war provided an unprecedented opportunity for the Sunni and Shia extremists to slaughter so many of their co-religionists.”

there is a problem within IslamThere is no malfunction, distortion, perversion or error in interpretation. The problem is intrinsic Believing Muslims threaten, attack, klill & maim kuffar because Allah commands them to, promises to reward them for it and threatens to damn them if they don't comply.
issue of Muslim radicalism
The issue is belief, not radicalism. Islam is
one damnable set of doctrines, not two. Neither moderate nor
radical Islam exists, there is only Islam.
ideology which is a strain within IslamIslam is the ideology; the ideology is Islam. Salafism & Wahhabism are not the problem; Salafism is builtr in, intrinsic to Islam. Wahhabism is a call to renewed purity.
the world view goes deeper
The world view is Islam, which divides the world
into Dar-al Islam where Allah's writ runs and Dar al-Harb, where it
does not and Islam wages war. .
there are Christian extremistsIn which New Testament Book, Chapter & verse did Jesus Christ sanctify, command & exemplify terrorist, genocidal conquest? Skip the Islamic tactic of passing off parables, allegories and metaphors as imperatives! Show us the functional equivalents of these gems of Islamic scripture & tradition:
3:151, 8:12,39,57,60,65,67, 9:5,29,38, 39,111,120,123, 33:26,27, 47:4,49:15, 59:2,13, 61:10-13; Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331 & 4.52.220.
Christians who shoot abortionists or bomb their clinics act in contravention of Christ's teaching & example. Christ told his disciples to shake the dust from their shoes and depart when rejected. Moe told his followers to wage war when rejected. A few Morons can not discern the difference; most politicians conceal it because they do not want to face demands for the extinction of Islam.
view about religionIslam is a way of life, not a religion; it dictates all facets of human life from conception to burial. The religious component serves as a social control mechanism, troop motivator and camouflage to prevent its victims from recognizing it as a predator. Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 23, #3455 informs us that Jihad is their "original religion", preferable to agriculture and commerce as a source of income. Abandoning Jihad leaves Muslims in a state of disgrace which Allah will not lift from them until they return to it.
view goes deeper and wider than it is comfortable for us to admitPoliticians can not admit the fact that Islam is the enemy, an implacable predator engaged in existential conflict which can only be resolved by extinction. When warriors believe that their eternal destiny is entirely dependent on their participation in genocidal conquest, they are going to participate, because they want to go to the celestial bordello, not to Hell.
Islamic law requires a minimum of one military expedition against infidels in every year. If Jihad is possible but not performed, all who know of the obligation are "in sin". That obligation is laid down in The Reliance of The Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9.1; reasonable people will read it and curse Islam.
Islamic law defines Jihad as war against non-Muslims in The Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9.0. What politician will admit that, according to Islamic law, Jihad is undertaken on Islamic initiative :"The caliph makes war on Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians" without provocation?
educating children about faithThose lying politicians need to be 'educated' with a ball bat, bucket of tar and bag of feathers. When they say "educate" they mean "indoctrinate". There is a difference. Only a damned fool thinks that, by filling the heads of children with malignant malarkey, Islam will be redefined and reformed. Instead, they will eventually be introduced to the authentic texts of Islam and become informed and the politicians who filled their heads with lies will be in trouble.
silent support of many more in their community who share their ideologyThe Qur'an defines believers as those who sold their souls to and fight for Allah; those who fight in his cause. Islam is not cafeteria Catholicism; it is an all or nothing package deal. I disrespectfully direct the attention of doubters, dissenters & deniers to 2:85 which tells Muslims that they will go to hell for rejecting parts of the Qur'an they disagree with.
What Ideas?Politicians won't identify the ideas in the enemy ideology. They describe those ideas as dark, totalitarian and bankrupt, but they fail to identify them. I am about to do something they won't do: identify the most significant ideas in the enemy ideology.
Only Allah has the right to be worshiped.This expression occurs frequently in the Hilali & Khan translation of the Noble Qur'an. I found it in 35 of the 114 surahs. Here is one example.
If only Allah has the right to be worshiped, then religions other than Islam are prohibited.
Only Allah has the right to rule.
Governments not operating on the principle of Shari'ah must be overthrown and replaced by Islamic regimes.
Muslims are obligated to enforce Allah's rights.What is the relationship between Allah and the Muslims? It is a master: slave relationship, one to many. Why does Allah need Muslims; what does he want them for? To do his wet work. Surah At-Taubah 111 makes this clear, read it and curse Islam. [Emphasis added for clarity.]
What is Allah's cause? His cause is to make Islam dominate the world. How do I know this? By Allah's word and hadith.
Narrated Abu Musa:
A man came to the Prophet and asked, "A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah's Cause?" The Prophet said, "He who fights that Allah's Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah's Cause."
In 9:111, a bargain is mentioned, what is it? The bargain is the sale of their souls to Allah. We learn more about it in Surah As-Saff. It is the commerce which saves a Muslim from the fire and assures his admission to the celestial bordello.
61:11. That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!
61:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.
61:13. And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allâh (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad ) to the believers.
You have seen the carrot, now its time to view the stick. For the description of Hell, turn to 56:41 and 22:19 The threat of eternal damnation is clearly implicit in At-Taubah 38-39.
9:39. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allâh is Able to do all things.
Orders to fightThese are contained in Surah Al-Anfal & Surah At-Taubah. They are fight until loops, with neither geographic nor chronological limits.
9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
The orders to fight are confirmed by Moe in this hadith.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have."
Practical ApplicationFor this, we turn to Maududi's Jihad In Islam. Open it to page 15.

They will not be satisfied with reconquering Israel, Spain, Greece, etc. Their objective is total global conquest.
