Today’s Observer publishes a number of letters in response to Henry Porter’s article in last week’s issue. All of them support Porter’s stance – “a wake-up call to all liberal, law-abiding citizens” – and they include one by raving US right-winger Carol Gould (for an example of her balanced view of British Muslims see here and here).
Yet another illustration of how liberals and the most obnoxious sections of the Right find common ground in their ignorance of, and prejudice against, the Muslim community.
Though, to be fair, even the Sunday Times manages to fit in a couple of pro-Muslim letters in today’s issue. When it comes to Islamophobia, the Observer manages to be marginally worse than the Murdoch press.
