UK to confront Islamic radicalism on campus

The Telegraph reports today that "Britain faces a sustained threat from extremist Islamic groups recruiting in British universities". Gee, d'ya think?

Of course, while rational persons in Britain attempt to focus attention on groups that represent a true threat, others are quick to remind them of other extremists:
A spokesman [for the British Muslim Forum] said: "We would, however, strongly urge the Government to consider issuing similar guidance on tackling anti-Muslim extremism of the far right, as this would reinforce the Government's resolve to tackle all forms of extremism."

Universities UK also praised the guidance but said warnings should be "focussed on all kinds of extremism, not just on extremism in the name of Islam".
They must be referring to all those Christians, Jews and Buddhists who've been blowing up trains, planes and buses lately.
