Countering Violent Extremism


In his speech at the Royal United Services Institute in central London, Robin Simcox will warn about the growing threat posed by Hamas and its Iranian backers in the UK. He will claim that Iran has the capacity to carry out or incite acts of violence on Britain’s streets and to spread extremist views through clerics linked to the regime, charities and education institutions. And he will say it is “time to confront reality” about the nature of extremist threats posed by Hamas and Iranian networks operating in the UK.
