Terrorism is a current threat worldwide. One of those countries who had the terrorism on close range is United States of America. We all remember the 9/11 terror attack, by the global militant Islamist organization, Al-Qaeda and the bombing attack in London in 2005. Terror can be different kind of goals, but mostly; political, religious or ideological goals and are mostly intended to create fear, and are directed to the civilians. This article is written by John F. Burns, a journalist from the famous news paper »The New York Times«.

The article deals with some outcast from the British Prime Minister, David Cameron's speech from the 5th of February, 2011. David Cameron has been the Prime Minister for Britain for the past seven years. He is from the Conservative Party. He is a well educated man and has a nice work history. He studied philosophy, politics and economy at Oxford University, England.

He is claiming that multiculturalism in Britain has literally failed, because Britain has become one of Europe's most active bases for terrorists' spots. One of David Cameron's biggest statements from his speech is that he claims that the main roots of this terror-problem is that because of multiculturalism has encouraged segregated communities where Islamic extremism can live and live separated lives, apart from each other.

One of the problems is also that very religious people live by their own rules and faith, because of their holy scriptures and their religion, that they are having a hard time sticking to the law, democracy, human rights and social integration, because they are guided that much about their faith. He shares these attitudes with Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany and President Nicolas Sarkozy of France.

One of David Cameron's main arguments is that the racism or discrimination is mutual. He says that all these kinds of different society's results in discrimination, but to the Muslims advantage. If a white person says some discriminating to a Muslim, he is at racist, but if it is the other way around, we are more careful about the accusations towards the Muslim. In which I strongly disagree on. In our world, in 2012, there is enough mutual racism or discrimination.

I strongly disagree on Cameron's statements about the mutual racism. If a Muslim goes against the law, the whole world knows and all the Muslims get blamed.

We live in a world fulfilled with evil generalizations. In Denmark, all the negative media coverage goes to the Muslims or immigrants. As I see it, if an immigrant comes in conflict with the law it is controversial in several months after, but not the same way for the native.

In David Cameron's speech he uses a formal and serious language. He speaks to those who knows something about this subject in advance and talks to savvy people in this area. He also speaks to the civilians in Britain
