Summary: 

“Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has outlined proposals for the security services to do more to observe and root out extremism in the country’s Islamic cultural centres.”

It is high time that a Western leader set such an example. The Muslim community should be eager to help and expose jihadist elements and hate preaching from within their communities, but many Muslim groups instead facilitate the spread of such doctrine by levying false “islamophobia” accusations whenever discussions are raised about the jihad and its doctrines, rooted in Islamic texts.

Summary: 

The inconvenient truth is that a fervent commitment to Islam led those benighted savages to murder Christians in Sri Lanka and that a sizeable proportion of Muslims worldwide are not entirely averse to such despicable actions. You cannot quite separate Islam from the horrors carried out in its name, no matter how well intentioned you may be. Nor, for that matter, can you separate Islam from the appalling treatment of women, gays, apostates and Christians in states which call themselves Islamic. Islam, as it is practised today, is in general neither peaceable nor tolerant and it seems to me absurd to pretend that it is.
