Sir, David Cameron is absolutely correct in blaming the internet, Imams, and Muslim families for the radicalisation of young Muslims in Britain. Clearly, the fact that Britain has for over a decade been engaged in illegal wars that were intended to “shock and awe” has done nothing to engender alienation and righteous rage, there-by facilitating the radicalisation of Muslim communities across Britain.
The Ballade of Joe McDonnell puts it rather well in my view, “and you dare to call me a terrorist as you look down your gun, when I think of all the deeds that you have done, you have plundered many nations, divided many lands, you have terrorized their people, you ruled with an iron hand, and now you’ve brought this reign of terror to my land.”
Sadly, this is as true of Britain today as it was of Ireland, because Britain’s state terrorism in Muslim lands has only served to bring terror to Britain. Rather than trying to impose democracy on Muslims at gun point, Britain and America should apologise and make such restitution as may be possible to the lands they have intruded upon.
