Age of Extremes

Age of Extremes follows an array of British Muslims from different socio-cultural backgrounds and viewpoints, discussing the War on Terror, its implications for British Muslims and impact on community cohesion.

From the author: I made this documentary because I felt that the programmes broadcast by the mainstream media had not adequately or honestly addressed the issue of the root causes of what is called Islamic extremism.

Since the inception of the so-called War on Terror, I felt British Broadcasters had made no real attempt to investigate or educate their viewers about the phenomenon, instead they have sought to reinforce the same stereotypes that were peddled to the public by the New Labour Government.

In my opinion, what is different about this documentary is that we question the scale of the perceived threat and to what extent the British establishment sought to manipulate public opinion.

      “you dont see them embracing multiculturalism in their enclaves.its always us anglo that have to embrace others but to say they should embrace our culture is racist.”

      im sorry, maybe you’re not a racist but you sure sound like one :-)

      Racism is the belief that the genetic factors which constitute race, ethnicity, or nationality are a primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that ethnic differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.[1] Racism’s effects are called “racial discrimination.” In the case of institutional racism, certain racial groups may be denied rights or benefits, or receive preferential treatment.

      Racial discrimination typically points out taxonomic differences between different groups of people, although anyone may be discriminated against on an ethnic or cultural basis, independently of their somatic differences. According to the United Nations conventions, there is no distinction between the term racial discrimination and ethnicity discrimination.
