The Cohesion Minister Shahid Malik believes for some reason that Muslims are unfairly targeted by anti-terror strategies, and this may 'alienate them':
These 'far-Right' plots are the work of disturbed, psychotic loners.
Mr Malik said that Prevent, which includes measures like helping mosques to spot the early signs of extremism in vulnerable youngsters, was too focused on the Muslim community.
He added: “You speak to any Muslim on the street anywhere in this country and they will say they are as opposed as you and I are to extremism, to terrorism.
“But the frustration is that they are constantly linked with terrorism as a community as a whole.”
He went on: “It is not just about the Muslim, it is actually about everybody in our society having a role to play and we cannot dismiss or underestimate the threat from the far right.”Scotland Yard has switched some officers to monitor a recent surge in suspected far-right plots.
When it comes to defeating the 'far-Right' on a political level, the way forward is to actually start listening to the concerns of ordinary people and resurrect the traditionalist-Right - but of course it is easier to spread lies and propaganda about how people who are against mass immigration are all evil weirdos who want to bomb Muslim schools.
There's a distinct lack of evidence for this view, however.
Of course, Malik's agenda here is pretty obvious; on the one hand he wants to destroy any support for parties which might resist Muslim immigration and crack down on the Islamic agenda; on the other he realises that Labour need to win back Muslim voters.
The danger here is that disaffected poor whites, Labour's traditional fodder, might actually believe that party cares for them once more.
It does not - it simply wishes to reduce them to a minority competing for favours with other minorities, and in large swathes of the country it has succeeded.
One of the few sane men left in mainstream politics, David Davis, has hit the nail on the head in this article by Bernard Dinnen:
Mr Malik says: "We shall be putting a renewed focus on resisting Right-wing racism. We cannot dismiss the threat." I can denounce these white extremists with the best of them. But I can't recall them blowing up Tube trains or attacking airports.Pretty much sums up the last eleven years, doesn't it?
So what is really behind this watering down of the fight against Islamist terrorism? David Davis, the former shadow Home Secretary, is in no doubt: "This has been done for political reasons. It is classic Labour – attack something on the Right to deflect attention. Anti-terrorist strategy should be about saving lives, not scoring points."
The parrot-cry is always, "The vast majority of Muslims are peace-loving". Of course they are. You'd have to be biased or ignorant to believe anything else. But what the majority think is irrelevant: it is the violent minority who are the menace. And whether the peace-loving majority are doing enough to combat the extremists.
The real truth is that Labour is scared of losing Muslim votes in inner-city seats. At least 20 Labour constituencies, including that of the Justice Secretary, Jack Straw, depend on Muslim votes. So we are watering down our defences against terrorism in order to protect the careers of Labour MPs.
