So it is that the Super Soaraway Currant Bun has run an editorial titled “Muslim march”, pontificating “THERE is a simple way for Muslims to denounce the monsters of IS: march through London in massive numbers with placards saying ‘not in our name’ … Muslims have been quick to protest if their faith has come under attack … Yet they have done too little in public to express solidarity with the victims in Paris”.
So let me help the inmates of the Baby Shard bunker by referring them to an article in The Nation by Lydia Wilson, titled “ What I Discovered From Interviewing Imprisoned ISIS Fighters” and subtitled “They’re drawn to the movement for reasons that have little to do with belief in extremist Islam”. She pitches the key western assumption: “Many assume that these fighters are motivated by a belief in the Islamic State”.
“Erin Saltman, senior counter-extremism researcher at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, says that there is now less emphasis on knowledge of Islam in the recruitment phase”. One interviewed prisoner told “The Americans came … They took away Saddam, but they also took away our security. I didn’t like Saddam, we were starving then, but at least we didn’t have war. When you came here, the civil war started”.
"...march through London in massive numbers with placards saying ‘not in our name’..."
Like hundreds of thousands of non-Muslims did in opposition to to the neocon illegal war declared by Blair, the tories and libdems. The war that led directly to all this horror.
Pound to a pinch of shit none of Murdoch's hack-cowards were on THAT march either.
There really is no lie they will not tell, no hate they will not stir, no neocon govermental mass murder they will not discourage, no enforced misery and tragedy they won't gloat over.
With the Murdoch boot boys we are almost at the bottom of the cultural barrel. There's only one layer beneath this, and that's outright fascism. And at the present rate THAT won't be long delayed.
"Rahman decided to make an effort by leaving critical comments under an ISIS video on YouTube, following which he was placed on MI5 and CIA watch lists."
