Yet while former Islamist extremists such as Hassan Butt and Ed Husain are urgently telling us the truth, Gordon Brown’s new administration is shutting its ears and embarking on a suicidally stupid and cowardly strategy.And for the first time in memory, CBC's The Current this morning actually presented a viewpoint not congruent to the Ceeb's normally pro-Islam stance. (not yet posted here). Their guest was the above noted Hassan Butt, previously extreme Jihadist who now reveals that Islamism is indeed a religious fanatical movement and has little (if anything) to do with poverty or the war fought against them.
If Butt is not rebutted with other evidence (sorry had to do this) there may be a day when fanatical Islamist will be broken. A very small number of Muslims follow their course of thought.
I encourage you to stay current with The Current to listen if you did not. Kudos to The Current.
I wonder if this change in content has anything to do with a change at the top of News division on June 19th.
And no, I don't necessarily believe that this post by BATB on June 6, 2007 that suggested he resign had anything to do with it.
