Yes, it is libellous to brand Muslims fascists

“While there demonstrably are political Islamist movements with programmes expressly advocating totalitarian theocracy – including the destruction of leftist parties and independent trade unionism – the class dynamics involved do not fit the template of European fascism.

“If Pollard wishes effectively to oppose such movements, he should stop frothing at the mouth like the deranged neocon he has sadly become, and develop a more sober analysis of these currents rather than excoriate the moderates behind Islam Expo, who are simply acting to further dialogue between their version of Islamism and the British body politic.”

Dave Osler comments on Islam Expo’s libel case against Stephen Pollard and the Spectator.
