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 Advisor Ian Acheson writes: "Most normal people would have no hesitation in condemning what was done to Jim Dixon and the other townspeople murdered beside him as straightforward terrorism. That is beyond the capability of Pat Cullen, the Sinn Fein candidate standing for that constituency in the forthcoming Westminster elections."

"“Berlin – Visually, the poster is reminiscent of pixelated 3D shooting games from the 90s: A man in camouflage clothing and with a machine gun stands in a stylized football stadium. Above it in broken English is the sentence: "Score the last goal" - and three possible targets: Berlin, Dortmund and Munich . The message of this and numerous other images in the radical Islamist propaganda magazine Stimme von Khorasan is nothing less than a call for terrorist attacks during the 2024 European Championships in Germany. […] "IS wants to exploit Moscow's momentum," believes terrorism expert Hans-Jakob Schindler from the Counter Extremism Project (CEP). At the end of March, more than 130 people were killed in a terrorist attack on an event center near Moscow . Immediately after the attack, IS released a long speech as an audio recording. The message: Europe is the next target. "They want to show that they are active and are now putting it into action," explains Schindler.”

“It could alleviate the suffering of many people in the southern Gaza Strip a little and at least temporarily spare them from new fighting: Israel's military announced "daily tactical pauses" on Sunday. Between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. local time (7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central European Time), the guns will be silent in selected parts of the coastal area, meaning that army operations will cease. Israel says it wants to enable the delivery of larger quantities of aid supplies. The ceasefire will apply to the route from the Kerem Shalom border crossing to Salah al-Din Street and then further north. The decision was made following consultations with the United Nations and other organizations, it said. […] Hans-Jakob Schindler believes it is plausible that the ceasefire is justified by humanitarian concerns. However, according to the senior director of the international Counter Extremism Project, military considerations are probably also behind the decision.”
