Exclamation Extremist Muslims recruit in universities

Quote:
Britain faces a sustained threat from extremist Islamic groups recruiting in British universities, the Government warned today.


Releasing new guidance designed to root out suspected terror cells, Bill Rammell, the higher education minister, said there was evidence that undergraduates were being "groomed" by groups infiltrating campuses disguised as ordinary students.

The document, released to all universities today, warns lecturers to be vigilant of students suspected of circulating extremist literature and extremist speakers visiting campuses.


It outlines a series of "scenarios" based on real events reported by university and college staff to illustrate the kind of threat being posed.
This includes a teacher who found pamphlets with titles such as "Who is a legitimate target?" and "From Jihad to a new world order" and a tutor who had been approached by students concerned about a speaker delivering a talk entitled "Terrorist or freedom fighter?".


It also describes how librarians have reported spotting students looking at computer images of men "dressed in military and civilian clothing holding guns" and concerns over extreme views being aired by members of Islamic societies.


Mr Rammell said: "This guidance provides a recognition - that I believe must be faced squarely - that violent extremism in the name of Islam is a real, credible and sustained threat to the UK, and that there is evidence of serious, but not widespread, Islamic extremist activity in higher education institutions."


He denied that it amounted to an attempt to target the Muslim community, but said that universities had to take "their responsibilities for the safety of their staff and students very seriously".


The guidance says that universities must set up partnerships with police to report suspicious behaviour. They also have a duty to promote integration between faith groups and societies, publicise support groups, vet external speakers and create plans to deal with emergencies, for example, when a student is arrested under terrorism legislation.


The British Muslim Forum, an umbrella group affiliated to almost 300 mosques, welcomed the guidance and said that the "radicalism of Muslim youths" on campuses needed to be tackled.


A spokesman said: "We would, however, strongly urge the Government to consider issuing similar guidance on tackling anti-Muslim extremism of the far right, as this would reinforce the Government's resolve to tackle all forms of extremism."


Universities UK also praised the guidance but said warnings should be "focussed on all kinds of extremism, not just on extremism in the name of Islam".

Thoughts? This is the kind of thing I'm most concerned about. It appears that they are trying to recruit extremists in western countries. We can see evidence of this here on this board.

Absolutely. There is plenty of anti-islamic sentiment vented on this board much like we're seeing in the media in the UK at present.

It's no surprise that extremist groups are seeking vulnerable disillusioned islamic youths that feel unwelcome here.

This is old news though, I would say I'm surprised it's only making its way into the newspaper today but then again it is the Daily Telegraph .

No doubt the Daily Mail will feature it for months to come .

Sam is just worried that the recruitment drive will have ended by the time his plane arrives in London.

Re: Extremist Muslims recruit in universities

The Hillel Foundation is all over USA college campuses and some of its people use this as a means of expousing hatred for Muslims. While the vast majority of the Jewish collegiate students serve the public honorably and Hillel serves their needs and enhance the academic experience, unfortunately it is clouded by the actions of a few haters.

The time has come to end the evil actions of all haters, not just a select few.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Hmmm, I am beginning to like this hillel foundation. I will learn more about it.
If wtazuperfann says it is extremist then it is probably moderate.

I can sense the same type of atmosphere in the air as in Arthur Miller's The Crucible.

Re: Extremist Muslims recruit in universities

Are these the same universities that don't mind credit card companies to come into the grounds to put their students in debt in the name of commercialism?

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
