Far Left stir up Islamophobia for their own ends!

The news that yet another two British Muslims have been arrested not only terrorist charges but making plans to join the criminal ISIS organisation in the Middle east comes just one day after David Cameron made his frankly excellent speech in which he said:

What we are fighting, in Islamist extremism, is an ideology. It is an extreme doctrine.

And like any extreme doctrine, it is subversive. At its furthest end it seeks to destroy nation-states to invent its own barbaric realm. And it often backs violence to achieve this aim – mostly violence against fellow Muslims – who don’t subscribe to its sick worldview.

But you don’t have to support violence to subscribe to certain intolerant ideas which create a climate in which extremists can flourish.

ideas which are hostile to basic liberal values such as democracy, freedom and sexual equality.

Ideas which actively promote discrimination, sectarianism and segregation.

Ideas – like those of the despicable far right – which privilege one identity to the detriment of the rights and freedoms of others.

And ideas also based on conspiracy: that Jews exercise malevolent power; or that Western powers, in concert with Israel, are deliberately humiliating Muslims, because they aim to destroy Islam. In this warped worldview, such conclusions are reached – that 9/11 was actually inspired by Mossad to provoke the invasion of Afghanistan; that British security services knew about 7/7, but didn’t do anything about it because they wanted to provoke an anti-Muslim backlash.

And like so many ideologies that have existed before – whether fascist or communist – many people, especially young people, are being drawn to it. We need to understand why it is proving so attractive.

In doing so he made one vital point:

...the focus of my remarks today is on tackling Islamist extremism – not Islam the religion

Quite clear and to the point.

But the comrades of the anti imperialist brigade are already trying to stir trouble. Chris Nineham rants on the Stop the War Coalition website:
IN HIS Birmingham speech about how to get Muslim people to identify with Britain, David Cameron announced nothing but further attacks on Muslims at home and abroad.

Given the Tories' track record it is no surprise that his five year plan to deal with Islamic extremism at home pins all the blame on the Muslim community. Muslims, apparently, have not integrated sufficiently and they have allowed 'extremist voices' to dominate 'within Muslim debate'.

The conclusion? A further clampdown on Muslim's civil livberties (sic)is necessary in order to get them to identify more fully with British values of tolerance, democracy and free speech. The argument that 'non-violent extremism' can lead to 'violent extremism' opens the door to Orwellian levels of surviellance and harrasment. Watch out. The world of thought crime is now with us.
Stirring up inter-communal conflict is all these people seem interested in. The shrill call of so-called "Islamophobia" ignoring the real problem that these extremists not only kill, they rape  and pillage across the Middle east. Has the StWC ever organised a protest against the genocide of the Yazadi's and other Muslims by ISIS? Of course not, no more than they protest about Russian aggression in the Ukraine.
The Muslim community should beware of people from organisations such as Stop the war, Counterfire or the Socialist Workers Party. These groups simply want to create conflict and use it to build their causes, one which is also counter-posed to democracy.
These groups are no better than the British National Party or the Islamists of ISIS.
People need to take a stand against political and religious extremism.
Islamism along with Communism and fascism all have one thing in common. They will kill you if you do not obey and conform.
Oppose ISIS, Counterfire and the BNP or whatever name these people hide behind.
Liberal democracy is worth standing up and fighting for.
