Graeme Demianyk reports in The Huffington Post: Charles Farr, Theresa May’s most senior counter terrorism adviser, warned against the urge to “overstate” extremism in the UK when as little as a hundred were being radicalised within a British Muslim population of around three million. The comments by the director general of the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism, made at a Jewish News conference on Israel and reported by the Daily Telegraph, come just days after the Prime Minister’s speech beefed-up his rhetoric on extremism.  His claim that radicalism was something “quietly condoned online or perhaps even in parts of your local community” was at the weekend condemned by former Tory minister Baroness Warsi for “demonising” Muslim communities. click here.
