CEP Senior Advisor Ian Acheson writes: "Shawcross has now disagreed publicly. The Home Office had, he said, ‘ignored’ key recommendations to beef up Prevent’s performance and the glass remained only ‘half full.’ I have some experience of bureaucratic sleight of hand at work when it comes to reviews and recommendations. When I was tasked by the Government to look into the Prison Service’s colossal and unforgivable failures in containing Islamist extremism a few years ago, I made 69 recommendations which were mysteriously repurposed into 11 without my consent; eight were finally accepted."

CEP Senior Director Dr. Hans-Jakob Schindler writes: "A complete ceasefire is unlikely to be reached; a reduction in fighting is more realistic. Hamas is fighting to continue existing as a power factor in Gaza and for the survival of its leadership. Netanyahu’s government has three, sometimes contradictory, goals: destroy Hamas’ infrastructure in Gaza, free the hostages and ensure the government’s continued existence. It will be difficult to reconcile these positions so that a general pause is possible."

CEP Senior Advisor Amb. Edmund Fitton-Brown writes: "Rather than talking of Islamophobia, we should do everything in our power to combat anti-Muslim hatred, a form of racism. The first step is openness and honesty about Islamism, of which Muslims are the primary victims."

"It is no coincidence that Daniela Klette was able to stay hidden in Kreuzberg for so long, says terrorism expert Hans-Jakob Schindler from the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) to IPPEN.MEDIA. “There is a large and very active left-wing extremist scene in Berlin. The RAF men are still heroes for many in this milieu. For the new generation of left-wing extremists, these are grandmas and grandpas who are revered.”"

CEP Senior Advisor Ian Acheson referenced: "Professor Ian Acheson, a Spectator contributor and former prison governor who was a Tornado section commander in the 1990s, agrees that low staff numbers, and their relative inexperience may be contributing factors. These days, when faced with acts of indiscipline, but ‘lacking the numbers, there simply isn’t the capacity’ to resolve problems before they escalate, he says. Much easier to retreat from the wing, and let the governor bring in external resources. Acheson does not believe that there has been a rise in large scale disturbances, although there are particular establishments in which ‘the state does not have control and appeasement is now the default.'"

CEP Senior Advisor Ian Acheson writes: "No one reasonable wants to see those who aspire to politics, national or local, bullied or intimidated into silence or simply deterred from standing. The pool of talent is shallow enough as it is. Violent extremists across the ideological spectrum want nothing less, of course."

"The move comes amid a rising tide of extremism in Germany, with the Counter Extremism Project highlighting the increasing menace of male supremacist extremism. Such groups have been linked to past attacks, and their potential for future violence against democratic institutions remains a significant concern for German intelligence agencies."

With such a well-connected support scene behind them, it was easier to go into hiding: “The trio didn’t have to rent an apartment and were also supported financially,” explains Schindler."

CEP Senior Advisor Ian Acheson writes: "Shoplifting is not a victimless crime. Where it has become a normal feature of criminal impunity now rampant in many poor communities, it forces vital shops to close down. When the lights go out on neighbourhood convenience stores because small businesses are overwhelmed by theft, it’s yet another nail in the coffin for postcodes marooned in crime. The consequences of supposedly minor infractions are immense."
