Summary: ” The regressive left often label any critic of Islam as a racist, Islamists often label all non-Muslims as the enemy and anti-Muslim bigots target all Muslims as the enemy. Anti-Muslim extremism and Islamist extremists—with their regressive left apologists—exist in a kind of twisted symbiotic relationship whereby each and every props up the other and both together create the best breeding ground, for their respective ideologies to not only persist but thrive. Anti-Muslim bigots, and Islamists are often viewed as two opposing groups on opposite ends of a line, when actually they are, but two sides of the exact same exact coin. Muslim-phobes and Islamists have much in common: both groups insist that Islam is a totalitarian political ideology at odds with liberal democracy and that it’s here to dominate. When anti-Muslim extremists focus on Muslim terrorism as a grievance, Muslims, and numerous on the left dismiss this and wish instead to focus on ethno-nationalist ideology. And in this light, credit goes to the restraint of the mosque imam in this latest attack, who prevented an understandably angry crowd from lynching the suspected anti-Muslim terrorist and insisted on calling the police instead. We can’t and will have to not allow, either side to dictate just how we view the world and polarize our societies or indeed muzzle intellectual debate about the role of religion and its need, for reform in today’s complicated world. Civil society will have to stand up to extremism in all its forms whether it comes as intolerance, or violence. government, anti-Muslim extremism has been the fastest rising of late. Yes, jihadist terrorism poses a far larger global threat but according to the U.K. Just as we rightly ask the question Muslims to do more to tackle Islamism in their communities accordingly will have to we call upon the populist right to address the rising anti-Muslim extremism in their ranks and the left to reign in regressive elements among theirs.”
