    I’m afraid Ms May is right. Once you let the camel get his ugly nose under the edge of the tent, he’ll try to come all of the way in. Universities are in fact being used as a breeding ground for Islamic thought all over the world, and along with that ‘thought’ comes Islamic extremism, including the violent kind.

They were not obviously extremists, but it became clear to this man that they were recruiting people into an organization that would do violence and terrorism.
