White Liberals Attack Brown Islamic Dissidents

The Southern Poverty Law Center has attacked principled and courageous critics of radical Islamism such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali (left), a prominent ex-Muslim writer, and Maajid Nawaz (right), a moderate practising Muslim writer, radio host and politician

Nick Cohen, in The Spectator, explained:

“In the liberal orientalist world view the only ‘authentic’ Muslim is a barbarian. A battery of insults fires on any Muslim who says otherwise. They are ‘neo-conservatives,’ ‘native informants,’ and ‘Zionists’: they are as extreme as jihadists they oppose, or, let’s face it, worse…”

In short, according with Cohen, “a section of the Western left has adopted the ideology of the Salafists, Khomeinists and Islamists. It supports their blasphemy codes, and apologias for murder”.

    What parts of the Koran, the Sira and the Hadith does ‘moderate Muslim’ Maajid Nawaz repudiate?
    If none, calling him a ‘Moderate Muslim’ is falling for taqiyya.
    If there are parts he repudiates (I doubt it) then he is an apostate and Islam commands him to be killed:
    Sahih Bukhari (52:260) – “…The Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.’ ”
    There is no middle ground.

    All civilizations eventually run their course. When I hear some of the brilliant and courageous comments from intellectuals and politicians and groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center, it starts to seem rather likely that Western civilization is living its final years.

    Time and time again, the Left has made one thing perfectly clear – they love totalitarian ideologies. Islam is just their latest infatuation. And since it really and truly is the totalitarianism in Islam that they truly love, of course they are going to attack any Muslim or ex-Muslim who dares to reject it, or even question it.
