There have been a couple of articulate and reasonable comments, and private emails to our free speech address, from Muslims saying they do not support the MAC and the other extremists, but cannot support us either because there has been so much anti-Muslim (as opposed to pro-free expression) comment on this site.
That's very understandable.
There has been some fantastic debate here, and there have been some hateful remarks, from people both for and against this campaign. With one or two exceptions, we don't remove comments once they have been made. The exceptions have been a post that advocated violence against Muslims and what was basically the manifesto of another organisation.
So we are asking for help - help from everybody interested in the success of this campaign. The main victims of extremist Islam are, of course, Muslims. For them to then find themselves denounced because of the actions of their oppressors is insupportable.
If you are a Muslim and would like to be able to support this campaign, please tell us how we can draw you in. If you are not a Muslim, please think about how we can draw in our Muslim neighbours.
All constructive criticism and advice welcomed. For the rest, there will doubtless be further examples in the comments of this thread of the reasons why we have to undertake this campaign. The hate of the left-, right- and Islamo-fascists is disturbing to witness. But if we don't stand up to it, how will our children be free?
