In a anticipated  speech in Slovakia, it is reported the Prime Minister David Cameron will declare that  ‘parts of some Muslim communities have to share the blame for young Britons joining Isis forces ‘. If this is the case then it will be yet another characteristically vague and unhelpful assertion. The Muslim Council of Britain responded with this statement:

“The Prime Minister is absolutely right in saying that finger-pointing when it comes to radicalisation is wrong and dangerous. Yet the media response to the Prime Minister’s speech suggests that the finger is firmly pointing only at Muslim communities, even though Muslims and Muslim organisations around the country have loudly and unequivocally condemned terrorism, they continue to be demonised. […] The reasons why people are drawn to this are many and complex. Simplifying the causes for tabloid consumption helps no one but the extremists. Blaming only Muslims for terrorism is just as bad as placing responsibility only at the door of government and its agencies. There must be a better way, one where Muslim communities, wider British society and the government work together with, not against each other to tackle the problem. “ click here.
