Speak out

First published in Letters

MONMOUTH MP David Davies should surely realise that radicalisation as to the true nature of US/UK foreign policy (e.g. the mass slaughter of men, women and children for the control of other countries resources) is not restricted to some in the Muslim community nor does it necessarily produce violent extremism!

Or perhaps the million people who protested against the illegal NATO led “blood for oil” invasion of Iraq are terrorists? Has not the UK Government also used and supported radical Islamic Groups? (See: Mark Curtis’ book “Secret Affairs – Britain’s Collusion with Radical Islam.) Indeed we should speak out against any traditions which tolerate forced marriages/female genital mutilation, homophobia or misogyny.

Such attitudes are reactionary but they are not restricted to some Muslims but can be found within fundamentalist Christianity and the Jewish faith.

Basically imperialism and any theocracy isn’t compatible with the need for socialist sanity!
