- Islamist, Malala Yousafzai
When news spread that 14 year old Malala Yousafzai had been shot on her way home from school by the Taliban for being an advocate of girls’ education, huge numbers of people showed up at the hospital to see if they could give blood or help in any way and held protests in her defence.
Like I said, Muslims (real or implied) are not a homogeneous community – not in Britain and not in Pakistan or Iran.
Take a good look at Malala and also photos from some protest rallies and relish as I did the face of human resistance and dissent.
Islamists: this is the power that will eventually defeat you.
Now if only the nice liberals and post-modernist Left in Britain and the west could muster up the courage that is so often shown by people in the Middle East and North Africa…
I can hope can’t I?
