Resist the racist offensive against Muslims

As well as Hassan Mahamdallie on levels of Islamophobia before the horrific Paris attacks (in this month's Socialist Review), see this week's  Socialist Worker for the anti-racist arguments more necessary now than ever to challenge the rising racist backlash underway - while there is also some useful commentary on Charlie Hebdo itself here, here and for some essential historical background see Robert Fisk - while on a related point Jim House and Neil MacMaster's work, Paris 1961: Algerians, State Terror and Memory recovers some of hidden history of another Paris massacre - one which saw 200 Algerian protesters killed by the police in Paris.

There is no such thing as "islamophobia" it is an empty term invented to defend islamic reactionary barbarism. Lenin is spinning in his tomb indeed - PC pseudo "left" defending imported islamofascist scumbags. Islam is opium for uncivilized masses.

'imported Islamofascist scumbags ... Islam is opium for uncivilized masses' - could you ever imagine Lenin saying such words? Or Marx for that matter? Who is really the 'pseudo-Left' here? Get away with your racism...
