If you really, really want to beat the extremists who plant bombs, blow themselves up, hack people to death, and shoot people, then don’t get angry with a whole religion. These people are extremists. They’re not the whole religion.
There’s only one way we beat extremists and it’s not by blaming innocent people, by tarring everyone with the wrong brush, by hating a whole religion; it’s by carrying on.
The thing extremists (all of them – Islamic and Far Right, Christian and radical left) hate most is our acceptance of different cultures, of different beliefs, of different ways of doing things. It’s the fact that we have two churches and a mosque on the street where I live. Being open to ideas, being a plural society, our acceptance and tolerance, is what they hate. If we carry on doing that, we win. Once we stop, they do.
