"[I]t is crucial to understand the differences between contemporary subversion, which is directed against Muslim communities, and subversion during the Cold War, which was directed primarily (but not exclusively) at state institutions. The infiltration of the armed forces, police, and government agencies is probably a small component of subversion today. The main thrust of countersubversion, both in Britain and the United States, should therefore be on the protection of Muslim communities from those who are undermining them from within, and on building and strengthening linkages between those communities and the larger society."
