Not that their beliefs and goals have anything to do with Islam, of course, or that Muslims who are not part of the Taliban or Al-Qaeda have any responsibility to halt the spread of such beliefs among Muslims. “‘Taliban and Al-Qaeda are like Nazis,'” from PTI, December 20 (thanks to Weasel Zippers):
London (PTI): The British defence secretary has compared the Taliban and al-Qaeda to the Nazis, saying that the “fanatics” are challenging the way of life in a manner similar to Adolf Hitler’s paratroopers.
Terming the military campaign in Afghanistan as a “vital national security mission”, John Hutton said it is a like the war to defeat Hitler.
“It is a struggle against fanatics that may not challenge our borders but challenges our way of life in the same way the Nazis did,” Hutton told The Times newspaper in an interview today.
No, they don’t challenge your borders, Mr. Hutton. They’re already inside them. Ring up a Mr. Anjem Chaudary if you’re not sure of that.
