My Worry About Islamic State

I believe that Islamic State are possibly the worst organisation I’ve seen in my lifetime. Even such as Pol Pot in Cambodia and North Korea now, are nowhere near them on a scale of evil. They are in some ways more extreme and violent than Hitler and the Nazis at their worst.

But unlike Hitler, who had virtually no supporters in this country, there are quite a few in the UK, who think that Islamic State have got the right idea.

So by voting to attack Islamic State in Iraq, have we made ourselves a target for these crackpots and religious nutters?

After all, it is really ourselves and France, of the countries against Islamic State, who have significant Muslim populations.

My worry though, is not what terrorists might do, but the reaction of the UK’s population, if another attack like those of July 7th 2005 were to happen.

  1. You are absolutely right about the Islamic State being without any moral basis, but I think you underestimate the support for Hitler in the UK in the 1930s. In the east end of London in particular there was considerable fascist support and even the Royal Family had Nazi connections. This all stopped with the start of the second world war.
