Another video by a Muslim woman
Maryam Namazie is one of the 12 co-signers of the Manifesto. She is born in Iran and fled in 1980 with her family. She was educated in the US and now lives in the UK. A declared communist, she criticizes Islam for a living. Another Muslim woman with balls.
If you want to watch the video, the clip with Ms. Namazie starts 60 seconds inside this Danish reportage. Also watch the other videos from her homepage. She even has a blog. Now, mind you. I am no great lover of communists, but I will make an exception for this brave lady.
Ms. Namazie among other points state:
Islamism is one of the great dangers of the world today. [...] It is wrecking havoc. It decapitates people and it still stones women to death in the 21st century. It imposes sexual apartheid wherever it rules. [...] The Cartoon Crisis is just another wake-up call for Europe, that needs to stand up to this movement.
The clip only lasts a couple of minutes and the reportage turns Danish again. There is then a small debate by two Danish experts in Islamist studies.
The pretty girl is a collaborator of another co-signatory, Mehdi Mozaffari, to the manifesto, who lives in Denmark. She has made a comparison of Islamism and fascism and sees many points of similarity and the same danger. She also mentions that Mussolini created a law to prohibit hurting religious feelings. According to Mussolini to create moderation and dialogue.
To counter the standpoint of the danger of Islamism is the black shirt dhimmi in the studio. He teaches at the Copenhagen university. According to him Islamism is most of all a democratic and social movement. Terrorism is mainly caused by the secular Muslim regimes keeping Islamism suppressed. He does of course not see any similarity to fascism.
I sent this e-mail to Ms. Namazie:
