IN THE NAME OF...
Is repulsed by the Islamic State beheadings committed in the name of Islam
Indeed, it is alleged the US played a direct role in creating the Islamic State to serve its geopolitical interests. But the complicity and hypocrisy of Western powers in the parlous state of global affairs seems no longer to contain or qualify outright Muslim condemnation of atrocities being committed in the name of Islam.
I suspect the context of loud condemnation by Muslims of Israel’s atrocities in Gaza is making this need for the equal condemnation of atrocities committed in the name of Islam.
I am not wholly defined by a religious identity, but the profound impact on my cultural being by the horrors being committed by the Islamic State in the name of Islam represents deep revolt – much deeper than a mere voice. This, I want the world to know.
