The #Prevent program’s problematic history of chilling free expression and entrenching discrimination against BME and Muslim communities has made front page news many times but today an opportunity to reform it is passing under the radar 1/2
The House of Lords passed an amendment to the #CounterTerrorismBill requiring an independent review of #Prevent. The Government is threatening to tank it. Today MPs consider that amendment, although I’d put the chances that any of them are paying attention at negligible. 2/2
I frigging love being wrong! Devil in the details of course - analysis to come.

Thread. I recently tweeted about the link between #Interfaith & CVE/PVE funding, citing the excellent report by @ArunKundnani & #BenHayes. tni.org/en/publication… #Prevent 1/
Yesterday I saw this article entitled "A Sobering Time For Interfaith" by Charlotte Littlewood. (Odd title as Allah s.w.t. Commanded Muslims to be sober at all times) blogs.timesofisrael.com/a-sobering-tim… 2/
Right at the end of the article it says that Littlewood was involved in Countering Violent Extremism Projects. #CVE It is beyond any doubt to me that Interfaith is an attempt to normalise Muslim relationships with #zionists. 3/

OUTRAGEOUS: Golders Green mosque set to hold an 'interfaith' event with #Zionists in London.

What about Palestine?

#FreePalestine #London
Pro-Israel press - which defends Israeli regime crimes against Palestinians, Muslim and Christian Arabs - are promoting the event with great enthusiasm.

#GoldersGreen #Zionsm #freepalestine
The #GoldersGreen mosque has a history of cooperation with anti-Palestine #Zionist groups.

Pictured is Zionist, Joseph Cohen, the founder of the Israel Advocacy Movement standing next to Mustafa Field, a Muslim interfaith activist, during a visit to the Mosque in 2017.

Thread: The latest statistics about govt's counter-terrorism #Prevent prog are out. Lots of interesting figures but here are some that I think are very troubling: Of the 7,318 ppl (mostly young ppl) referred to Prevent, *only 5%* are actually assessed to require Channel support.
2/How professionals decide *who is a risk* and how #Prevent prog arrives at risk factors is hugely impt. Huge Qs about how accurate the assessment is. Of the 7,318 ppl referred, many young & Muslim, 82% dismissed/referred to non-radicalisn services. But stigmatised either way.
The 95% "misdiagnosis" rate in #Prevent is worrying given that it disproportionately affects young Muslim ppl. Not many ppl realise this, but the way #Prevent is implemented - and its impact - is very similar to #Stopandsearch. It's humiliating and the stigma follows you.

The sensitive issue of how we support children at risk of #radicalisation is a thorny one. Few would disagree we should protect them from abuse and harm.

When a teacher attempts to #radicalise over 100 children to become a 'child army' of #terrorists, we must have challenging conversations and identify long-term solutions theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/m…
If schoolgirls can be #radicalised by #Islamist extremists and enticed to a conflict zone like #Syria, we must ask ourselves how do we #prevent it happening again, what tools do we have to #safeguard the most vulnerable? standard.co.uk/news/world/fam…

MARCO RUBIO’s HYPOTHESIS: Those against gun bans “want to prevent mass shootings, too. They view banning guns as an infringement on the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens that ultimately will not prevent these tragedies.”.
This is called the Scientific Method. To test his hypothesis (which means millions of lives), research is required.
RESEARCH BIAS; Rubio has an A+ rating from the gun rights group for supporting NRA-friendly legislation. According to the New York Times, he has received $3.3 million from the group. (Research bias,performing the research influence the results to portray a certain outcome.)

The @AmerAcadPeds is involved in preventing accidental shootings in the home involving children. Sound #gunsafety advice 👇dispensed with understanding to prevent tragedy that the State of FL made illegal through legislation-- finally overturned after a $1M, 6 year legal battle.
This same law would have prevented doctors from asking potential school shooters anything about guns and, even if they did, HIPAA law is a monumental barrier to sharing the information to prevent tragedy. #ENOUGH orlandosentinel.com/news/politics/…
Despite real barriers in the law and an often hostile political climate, docs are coming out in force to advocate for patients to #prevent #gunviolence as a matter of moral duty. REQUIRED READING. HELP @DocsDemand thehill.com/opinion/civil-…
