British Prime Minister David Cameron unveiled a new strategy Monday to combat extremism, saying the battle was "perhaps the 'defining one of this century'."The Counter-Extremism Strategy has been promised by Cameron's government for months, designed primarily to counter the ideology promoted by ISIS militants, al-Qaeda and other extremists that the authorities say can lead young Britons onto a path of violence.The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), the country's largest umbrella Islamic organization, said that while terrorism was a real threat, the government's strategy is based on poor analysis and risks alienating those whose support it needs.David Anderson, an independent reviewer of anti-terrorism legislation, has warned that any wrong decisions risked provoking a backlash in Muslim communities and driving people towards extremism and terrorism.
