British Islamists helped by TEACHERS’ union undermine UK counter-terror scheme, study says

6 Oct

An organised campaign led by extremists has been using false claims and misleading arguments to scaremonger about the Prevent counter-extremism strategy, a policy paper from cross-party think tank the Henry Jackson Society (HJS) found.



The groups have been claiming Prevent only targets Muslims, which has had a damaging effect as it has gained footholds in schools, universities, local councils and politics, the report released today says.

Prevent was developed as part of Britain’s counter-terrorism policy to “respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism” and to “prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.
