"Non-violent extremism"

Full article: “Non-violent extremism”

In 2005, the phrase "extremism" was introduced as an alternative to "terrorist". In January 2011, the phrase "non-violent extremism". In 2014, Alex Schmid at the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism published a research paper that argued that the distinction between “violent [Muslim] extremism” and “non-violent [Muslim] extremism” is not a valid one. He concludes that “preventing violent extremism is not enough; rather all extremism – Islamist and other – ought to be prevented, given the bloody track record of extremism in power in the twentieth century and beyond. Rather than distinguishing between non-violent and violent extremists, we should distinguish between extremists and non-extremists and support the latter against Islamists at home and abroad. Governments should challenge and resist all extremism, whether it is violent or not, whether it is Islamist or not.”[1]
