You confuse the fact that I criticise with the assumption that I ergo downplay the problem. Is there a problem with Islamic extremism in the UK?. Should we be concerned/worried?. Do we need to combat it?.

Yes.

BUT much of what I read here about UK Islam, and from conservative America, frankly is a lot of nonsense. Written by people who dont live here, and in many cases have never even been here. Far too much of it is hysteria. Blowing a serious but relatively minor problem way out of proportion.

Some of the ‘facts’ I have been told here or read online about Britain and Islam are downright bizarre or hilarious (25% of the UK is Muslim is my favourite).

I am British. I live in Britain. I know my country better than any American posting here. And I lived through terrorism for nearly 30 years week in week out, and have seen firsthand terrorism. I know therefore of what I say.
