  •  OK, so which left wing group would you recommend (0+ / 0-)

    I look at to see who's leading the charge? I've spent quite a bit of time looking at what's going on in England. Pat Condell doesn't seem to be part of any large organization. Like if ordinary British citizens want to organize and speak out about how Islamic extremism is damaging their community, what group would they join?

    I thought you said the term "Islamofascism" came from the Storm Front website. Now it came from Karl Rove. I have no idea where it came from. As far as I know, it's just one term that some have found useful to talk about a problem that arises out of some versions of Islam, just as Christofascism comes out of some forms of Christianity but doesn't mean the entire Catholic Church. If you don't like that term, I will try to stick to other terms like "radical Islam". Though I have no idea who invented which word, frankly, so maybe I'll stumble on another one that came from some right-winger whose material I've never read. I could call it "civilization jihad," since that's the term the Muslim Brotherhood uses, but most people don't know what that means.

      Left best cut out for this are left wing Muslims. And they've been working on these issues for years.

      I recommend Omar Ali, Humza Yousaf in Scotland (old Article, he's a  Scottish National Party official now), and groups like the AHA Foundation. There are PLENTY more if you're willing to look.

      Karl Rove began the use of the term Islamofascist specifically targeting the Ba'ath party, but it's since been adopted by Stormfront and used against Muslims in general.

      •  Ayaan Hirsi Ali, all right! (0+ / 0-)

        I didn't know about the AHA foundation.

        I have been looking. I'm more than willing to look. I'll keep looking.
