myth you wrote

The French Left places Islamism among its long standing tradtional enemies.

This also might be happening here on this side of the Atlantic just watch the very liberal Bill Maher and his recent attacks on Islamism and Islam as the source of this fascist ideology

The most amazing is that even the likes of Nicholas Kristof at the very liberal New York Times wrote this article questioning if Islam is to be blamed for the atrocity as Charile Hebdo

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/08/opinion/nicholas-kristof-lessons-from-the-charlie-hebdo-shooting-in-paris.html?_r=0

This would not have been possible even a few weeks ago and notice that this is the same paper whose journalists the likes of David Kirkpatrick was telling us back in 2013 that the Muslim Brotherhood is a democratic party! and in an article on the same page there was a report on the attacks on Copts and the torching of Coptic churches by members of the MB!

Kristof in the above article lists the various atrocities committed in the past year by Islamists against the Yazidis and the Christains in Iraq something that is not mentioned in the New Yeak Times. This in itself is a long leap forward for the NYT Oh I forgot that he includes the attacks on the bizarre al-Ahmadiyya by Muslims but does not mention that ALL Muslims do not regard members of al-Ahmadiyya as real Muslims!

This does not mean that all is well because yesterday Layla Fadel who is the NPR correspondant in the Middle East was telling her audience that most of the victims of Da'ish are Muslims (which is a blatant lie) and that Iraqi Muslims tell her that members of Dai'sh are not real Muslims!

The Yazidis and the Christians in Iraq? Not a word about their plight
