The Sun identifies him as a “white Muslim convert.” The British press is hopelessly wrongheaded about the jihad issue, framing it almost exclusively as a racial problem between “Asians” and “whites.” But the existence of bloody-minded jihadis like Ashraf Islam shows why it is so stupid to see the jihad threat in racial terms. Ashraf Islam wants to murder the Prince not because he is “brown” and the Prince is “white” — they are both “white.” Ashraf Islam wants to murder the Prince because Islam has subscribed to a violent and supremacist belief system — one to which people of all races adhere. But everyone is afraid to confront that belief system. It is so much easier, and more comforting, to pretend as if the whole problem were one of racial tension.
