Islamic extremism in UK universities

A new report from the UK's Centre for Social Cohesion (available here) says that just under a third of Muslim students at British universities believe that killing in the name of religion is justified. A similar number support the establishment of a global caliphate. The corresponding percentages for active members of Islamic societies were 60% and 58%, respectively. Those two statistics are highly suggestive of what is discussed in those societies.

A few other stats: 40% of Muslim students support the introduction of sharia law into Britain, and 54% would like to see a Muslim political party stand for Parliament.

As I mentioned a few days ago, the United States has a terrorist threat that is larger than people may think. As in the UK, universities are a key incubator for radical Islam. It's amazing how little this problem is discussed in the mainstream media.
