Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain media coverage, June 2007 [external link]

The courage of their convictions, AC Grayling, June 19, 2007[external link]

There is an immense difference between understanding something with one’s head, and understanding it with one’s guts. Think of the phrase, “the courage of one’s convictions”. This week the true meaning of these words, hitherto eroded into a flat nap-worn cliche by overuse and misuse, comes home with the force of a kick in the belly. For on Thursday June 21 in London, a group of people are going to take a stand for their principles in a way that involves real courage, admirable courage, and which at the same time lights a torch of hope in a dark quadrant of the world’s affairs.

The occasion is the launch of the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain, following the establishment of such groups elsewhere in Europe, notably Germany and Scandinavia. The British branch is led by the outstanding Maryam Namazie, Iranian-born champion of (among other things) human rights, women, and refugees from religious persecution. The manifesto of the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain eloquently speaks for itself, and I hope Maryam Namazie and her fellow-members of the council will not mind if I quote it here in full, because it deserves the widest publicity, not least because the 10 demands appended to it constitute a bill of rights which is absolutely necessary for everyone, non-religious and otherwise, to adopt and observe now that the world is again experiencing, with such bitterness, widespread religion-generated difficulties.


Eye of the Storm
DNA Magazine, December 2006 [external link]

Maryam Namazie is selected as one of 2006’s most intriguing people by the best selling magazine for gay men in Australia.

Women’s Right to Equality
The Australian, November 30, 2006

Some women from Muslim backgrounds believe that Islam and women’s rights are antithetical. Maryam Namazie, a British-based human rights activist, said recently: “Debating the issue of women’s rights in an Islamic context is a prescription for inaction and passivity, in the face of the oppression of millions of women struggling and resisting in Britain, the Middle East and elsewhere. Anywhere they (Islamists) have power, to be a woman is a crime.”

Namazie is of the Left. She is the director of the Worker-Communist Party of Iran’s International Relations Committee and has been named British secularist of the year. But in general, she notes, the Left, the traditional defender of human rights, is silent about the oppression of Muslim women.

Anger over Khatami
The Herald, November 1, 2006

Maryam Namazie of the Worker-Communist Party of Iran left the country in 1980, a year after the Islamic revolution and now lives in London. She said: “Khatami should be arrested, not honoured, it is an outrage. Khatami has held positions of power in Iran since Khomeni’s days, he represents the regime and is a defender of the supreme spiritual leader and the Islamic Republic.”

Manifestoes are for saps
But the Third Camp manifesto deserves recognition for addressing the important issues
Comment is free, the Guardian, 10 AUGUST 2006

I know that there are a lot of manifesto buffs who read Comment is free, and the Manifesto of the Third Camp against US Militarism and Islamic Terrorism looks like it deserves a bit more publicity. It seems to me that it is rather a better document than the Euston manifesto for a number of reasons:

  1. It is being promoted by people who have some personal stake in the matter: it is specifically aimed at establishing a position against military or economic warfare against Iran, and it is being sponsored by a number of Iranian opposition groups who have a decent claim to speak for Iranian democratic opposition. The UK contact is Maryam Namazie of the Worker-Communist Party of Iran, who won the “Secularist of the Year” award last year for her courageous opposition to Iranian totalitarianism specifically and authoritarian Islam generally.

Islamic ‘lifestyle’ imposed by force
Letter to the editor, The Independent, 23 June 2006

Sir: Thanks but no thanks. Many of us have fled the Islamic “lifestyle” Dominic Lawson advocates for Britain (Opinion, 20 June). Islamic laws are anything but lifestyle choices. They are imposed by brute force. The penalty for gambling, doing drugs and drinking alcohol is execution under Islamic law and so too is it for having an affair, acts incompatible with chastity, apostasy, blasphemy, and so on. With the rise of the influence of political Islam in the heart of Europe, Mr Lawson
