    How can we criticise the beheading of a schoolteacher outside his school by someone influenced by Mohammedan teaching without being accused of “Islamophobia” ?

    In any event, people can’t go around beheading others just because they don’t like what they say or do.

    We condemn the atrocity as terrorism and that such tactics can only reinforce islamophobia and lead to the harm of those who follow the Muslim faith. It is an act that is not in the slightest interest of the vast majority of Muslims and such violence plays straight into the hands of bigots and racists who will take advantage of the anger of all reasonable people to increase hatred between peoples for political gain.

    I think there is mileage in looking at who is weaponising Islam and why: the money spent on propaganda, and finding suitable agents (I listened to a fascinating audio doc on the assassination of Benazir Bhutto and the way in which young radicalised kids were being used, they’re very good at finding vulnerable kids).

    And, of course, those in France who weaponise Islam to sow division and otherise Muslims.

    The back-lash

    Two women  stab two other women wearing Muslim headscarves near the Eiffel Tower in Paris and trying to rip off their veils.
