From The Islamic Reform Movement:


The Enemy of My Enemy


"There is an ancient Arab proverb that says, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." Its meaning is essentially self-explanatory. In the modern world, the phrase can describe the relationship among seemingly disparate people or groups who share a common adversary.

It is no surprise that Islamist organizations in the United States espouse support for foreign Islamic terrorist organizations and denounce virtually every US counter-terrorism effort. Such organizations viciously attack Israel and often Jews when issues related to Israeli defense measures against terror attacks come into play. Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and other Palestinian terror organizations can unleash lethal attacks against Israelis and Jews and nearly any Israeli response will be condemned as a "war crime" against the Palestinian people.

A disturbing trend is emerging in America. Those radical Islamists are finding new allies among a number of extreme leftist groups.

One example of this is the coalition found in "Viva Palestina USA." Viva Palestina USA is an offshoot of British MP George Galloway's anti-Zionist, pro-Hamas Viva Palestina convoy initiative that has conducted supposed humanitarian aid trips into Gaza, including last month's trip with about 200 Americans as well as more than $1 million in aid for Palestinians in Gaza. Viva Palestina USA claims to be a humanitarian initiative desiring to help needy Palestinians.

Hello Carol

I am writing to you via your blog as I can't seem to find an email-editor section on your website.

I really enjoy your work and just wanted to point you in the direction of mine: http://www.prozacville.co.uk/.

Prozacville is a literate, slightly off-the-wall cartoon project about existential discomfort and other things that go bump in the night, starring a cast of walking-talking Prozac pills.

The work is created in pen and ink and then digitally coloured as a vector image, making it ideal for page and screen perusal.

I would love to be able to do something with your mag, either as a commissioned work to sit alongside a piece of writing, or as a stand-alone cartoon. How would you feel about this?

Regards

Brian
