Daniel Johnson, journalist and editor of what he calls the "not very right-wing" magazine Standpoint, called Islam "the most direct threat to Western civilization in the world today".

Johnson deplores the lack of "freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, equal rights, and separation between church and state" in Islamic countries, emphasizing that "all these ideals emerged in the West."

Johnson claims that a university like Oxford, with its tradition of free academic inquiry, could not exist under the conditions of an Islamic state and that "there is no university in this sense in the Islamic world".

MOTION: THIS HOUSE BELIEVES ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE.
