‘Reject the support of Islamists’ urges Toube

Writing in the Jewish Chronicle, Harry’s Place blogger David Toube argues that politicians should reject endorsements from the Muslim Association of Britain.

“Like the BNP, the MAB/Muslim Brotherhood is desperate to participate in mainstream politics, and to be recognised as the pre-eminent moderate Islamist voice, capable of acting as a bulwark against al Qaida. That is rather like turning to the BNP in the hope that they’ll help hold back fascist terrorist groups like Combat 18…. Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party should move quickly to make it clear that mainstream politics can do without the support of fascists.”
