I read this to test myself for any latent anti Islam prejudice. The author appears to suffer from an equal but opposite set of prejudices making for a long yet pointless read. Why is it so hard to hear both sides of the argument without obvious bias toward a personal conviction.

Do you remember George Bush bringing "democracy" to the middle east and the big waver on a warship stating "mission accomplished"??

it is articles like this why I don't pay subscription to the Guardian. whilst I absolutely agree that there is this Islamic takeover trope in the Far Right, this author completely ignores the reality that for some muslims it is true! the Far Right didn't invent this idea of takeover by breeding and immigration, I've head imams telling their flock to do just this! Why can't you make the fair criticism of the FR and also make the fair criticism of that which some call 'Islamism'? you like to pretend that these imams and their followers don't exist, when you lose through omission like this all you do is add to the distrust and conspiracy theories of manipulation. it is backfiring, you help the FR with this islamophile apologetics.
