|The two faces of Islam
Terrorism impedes the advances made by the diplomatic wing of the
Jihad, stimulating hostility to Islam and Muslims. It brings Islamic
organizations under unwanted scrutiny by the media, the government,
and law enforcement. CAIR and MCB then have to fight rearguard
battles. The July 7 bombings dramatically (if temporarily) disrupted
the progress of "Londonistan," Britain's decline into multicultural
lassitude and counterterrorist ineptitude.
Some Islamists recognize this problem caused by the violent wing of
the Jihad for the diplomatic wing. One British Muslim writer
admonished fellow Muslims on a website: "Don't you know that Islam is
growing in Europe??? What the heck are you doing mingling things
up???" Likewise, a Muslim watch repairer in London observed, "We
don't need to fight. We are taking over!" Soumayya Ghannoushi of the
University of London bitterly points out that al-Qaeda's major
achievements consist of shedding innocent blood and "fanning the
flames of hostility to Islam and Muslims."
Things are not what they seem. Terrorism of the violent wing hurts
the strategies of the diplomatic wing of the Jihad and helps its
opponents. The violence and victims' agony make this hard to see, but
without education by murder from the violent, the lawful diplomatic
wing of the Islamist movement would have made far greater gains.

within the Islamist-Communist Alliance
The days of unfurling the Red banner are gone. Communists and
Socialists try to relive this nostalgia by forging a contradictory
alliance with Islamists.
Those on the Left who support the Communist-Islamist alliance have
found not only a revitalizing cause but also an unexpected and deep
hinterland from which to draw support. 'The practical benefits of
working together are enough to compensate for the differences,' Such
opportunism exposes a strain of pernicious racism that allows the
Left to indulge outrageous bigotry as long as it is espoused by brown
people from the Middle East.
Points of potential disagreement between the hard Left and radical
Islam - democracy, human rights, xenophobia, free-expression,
feminism, homosexuality, abortion, among many others - would seem to
pose insuperable barriers to the union. Not so. The hurdles have been
neatly vaulted in the interest of mutual hatreds: America, Israel,
globalisation, capitalism and imperialism. Anti-Semitism is never far
from the surface.
But 'the far Left will always support Third World peoples against
what they view as an imperialist West,' notes one analyst who has
closely followed the phenomenon. Another says, 'Islamists in the West
have skilfully used the tools of intellectual intimidation to build
an inviolate wall around Islam, giving it a sacred status that brooks
no criticism.' The French Leftist leader Olivier Besanšonneau added
political piquancy when explaining his inclusivist approach to the
Islamists: 'Are these not the new slaves? Is it not natural they
should unite with the working class to destroy the capitalist
But there are small voices of doubt. To some within Britain's
Trotskyite Alliance for Workers' Liberty, the unholy marriage is
outright heresy. One Trot describes SWP advocates of the Black-Red
alliance as 'demoralised Guardian readers with headscarves', a
withering allusion to the SWP organizer who ordered secular,
socialist women to cover their heads while demonstrating with their
Muslim sisters outside the Israeli embassy in London. And he is
scathing of SWP monitors who enforced gender segregation to mollify
Muslim sensibilities at a demonstration in Trafalgar
Square. 'Marxists are secular or they are not Marxists,' said the
Trot with principled purity.
