Are the Hard Leftists Aligned with Radical Islamists?

Since the presidential campaign began, and then right up until the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on February 24, 2017, President Donald Trump has kept saying the same thing: that the United States is at war with radical Islam, mainly represented by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Yet, the leftist media and other American liberals insist on portraying his position as a fight against Islam and Muslims. In fact, most moderate Muslims are not offended by the phrase “radical Islam,” because they are very distressed by the fact that their religion has been commandeered by the radicals and transformed from a religion of peace into a more radical version. Unfortunately, instead of the leftists giving a voice to and supporting these moderate Muslims, a kind of leftist-Islamist alliance has emerged.

Abdel Rahman al-Rashed, a Saudi columnist for pan-Arab newspaper Al Sharq al Awsat, said in 2004:

“It is a certain fact that not all Muslims are terrorists, but it is equally certain, and exceptionally painful, that almost all terrorists are Muslims… The majority of those who were suicide bombers on buses, other vehicles, in schools and other places, all over the world, were Muslim”.

This statement from a well-known columnist and a former General Manager of the Al Arabiya news channel demonstrates how moderate Muslims are critical of their own culture and how they are saddened by how their religion has been hijacked by radicals. However, these appeals fall on deaf ears with leftists; they call moderate Muslims passive, which instead supports and furthers the radical Islamists’ cause.

      Yes! And not just the “hard left”; rather, the left more generally is allied with Islamists and Islam (the latter two overlapping and mere semantics to separate the two).

    Of course they are. They SAY they are.

    Stopped reading at “their religion has been commandeered by the radicals and transformed from a religion of peace into a more radical version.”

    Its just more apologist BS.

      Are you talking about the left or Muslims…or both?

    • Clausewitz

      Islam is not a religion, it’s a cult.

    The left hates the non-collectivized west.
    Is lam just hates the west and the left sees that as another useful tool in weakening the west.

    Of course they are. I have been watching in amazement as the wimynz movement has been quickly taken over to the point that the dumpy chicks with wierd hair colour are now being told to praise allah and take the head scarf.
    wearing a scarf rather than spend time on costly dyes and basic hygiene might be a major time saver for the politicaly active big girl, though what she might find to fill that time will probably involve eating sarah lee straight out of the box over the sink

    Most leftists and western vote whores seem to also follow the follow the path trod by ex Emperor Obama and Hitlery: support the most extreme muslims on hand domestically and internationally in return for at least their implied if minimal cooperation. In cases like isis, keep killing the top leadership until someone rises to the top who grasps a few basic rules around being housebroken. Guess the logic is if your start at the wildest of the wild side there is less chance of being blindsided later by some mahdi fanatic popping up out of the weeds and spoiling your gig.
