Via Dave Bones, I thought this was a good news report on the launch. I missed all the sandwiches :(

I thought I’d let Maajid Nawaz speak for himself.

    Majid Nawaz said what I said that extremism is based upon mixing Communist/Marxist Ideology with Islam. He gets his own video clip here and I get threatened with censure!

    I’d still like to see them say what they are doing practically.

    As I said their mandate isn’t inspiring and there needs to be an something to tackle core issues.

    This appears to be Sufi Muslim Council Mark 2 and certain creeds are using it to attack creeds they don’t agree with as illustrated in the mandate.

    Muslims needs a collective approach to tackle this issue and really tackle it instead of attacking each other. This is why I worry that such initiatives lose focus when it becomes a blame game thus losing focus on the issue which needs to be addressed.

    I’d say that at the moment QF have the ear of the media and government but will they manage to retain this?

    To achieve their goals they need the Muslim community with them and the early signs are not good.

    Time will tell.

    But it will be interesting to see how they now reach out to the community they say they’ll help and represent.

    They do seem a bit focused on a crusade against their former comrades. Do write this to them Avi, see what they say. I’ve sent them the discussion I filmed with Musa, if they get back we have communication if they don’t, well you know, we tried.

    okay, so ‘Traditional Islam’ is compatible and similar to Western political theories of Liberalism and Democracy, however Islamism is not Islamic because it is compatible and similar to Western political theories of Socialism and communism?

    Confused? yep.
