Reader comment on item: How Islamists Came to Dominate European Islam

Submitted by myth (Germany), May 28, 2010 at 11:14

All it takes is to understand that political islam equals radical islam. If western politicians approach muslim representatives they can be sure to be talking to people who have political ambitions based on islamic religious beliefs and goals. That alone is foolish to do. It renders those ambitions legitimate. Back in the 1940ies the Nazi ideology itself had some religious, somewhat mystic quality to it. Being radical or totalitarian was nothing negative back then. Today the western politicians should sit and wait until those political islamists organize themselves in political parties. Accepting political representation outside of democratic parties establishes a second system of political power. This is exactly what the islamists want. I recommend ignoring the self-appointed muslim representatives. I advise politicians to support the majority of the western population in resisting the islamists instead.
