Education is the key to combating fundamentalism

Free speech, religious tolerance, an understanding of the dignity of others, the liberty of the individual, the freedom to make the most of one’s talents, and respect for the institutions of our democracy are what make Britain great.

Given all the facts, it is now impossible to deny that Britain has a problem with fundamentalist Islam. This is not an indictment of the venerable faith of Islam, or of the millions of law-abiding, patriotic Muslims who live in this country. But it is a challenge that we ignore at our peril. A challenge that should be met with a positive restatement of British values.
