I have just looked at Fitna, Geert Wilders' movie. It shows 9/11, Madrid, and London bombings, interspersed with texts for the Quran, and interspersed with bloodthirsty sermons from fundamental mullahs expounding those texts.
Then as a kind of antidote, I looked at Schism, based on Bible texts, and showing western violence.
It is all a kind of leap back into the Middle Ages.
It is possible that by banning Wilders, who calls for the Quran to be banned, Government has averted demonstrations, clashes and a further cohort of redicalised Muslim youth. By banning him, they have resiled just a bit further from free speech. Free speech or riots? Irreconcilable question - a Koan.
I have debated with Islamophobes on openDemocracy. They are individualist fundamentalists themselves, mirrors of the Islamists, a paired couple of forces who are doomed to waste their lives in total struggle against their polar opposite. That is a matter for them.
For the rest of us, the way should be to defend ourselves against Islamist attacks with intelligence services and the police, and by banning hate speakers from both sides from our country. We should also avoid making things worse by invading Islamic countries, and by avoiding provocation.
Persecution strengthened the early Christian church. Wilders and the Islamophobes will strengthen the Islamists if we give them undue attention.
A wise friend said "Leave fundamentalists alone. They will end up boring themselves to death"
