Mr Kapadia: You wrote "You are right in saying that this war has to be tackled just as the war against communism was tackled. But for that to happen, people first need to recognise that Islamic teachers are the problem. The teachers instill the idea into young muslims minds that musims are being victimised everywhere in the world. They also instill an islamic identity in the muslims to the exclusion of all their other identities".

We handled communism and its teachers in the universities. Same way, Islam can be handled. Most of the US actions against commies in US during the 1950's-1960's were probably 'unconstitutional'; but the people were scared and they did not pay any attention to the 'unconstitutionality' of those actions. Same thing can be done regarding Muslims and Islam.

Where there is a will, there is a way.

Just revive the House Unamerican Activities Committee. (does anybody remember what it was?).
