(en) France, Alternative Libertair #222 - Islamophobia: For a radical critique of religion (fr) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 21 Dec 2012 20:14:40 +0200

Karl Marx said religion, in the Critique of the Philosophy of Right Hegel published in 1844, it is "the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a world without heart, as it is the spirit of social conditions where the mind is excluded. It is the opium of the people ". Clarification of the position of Alternative libertarian about his fight against Islamophobia. ---- In the previous issue of Alternative Libertaire are published two articles "Rated battery" and "Side face" criticizing Islamophobia. Article first denounced the militant right-wing Alain Soral. In essence, this article analyzes the strategy of the fascist splinter Equality and Reconciliation, is indisputable. Endorsed the libertarian alternative denunciation of Islamophobia: it is analyzed as a survival of the political domination of the post-colonial state which seeks to stigmatize the entire populations from North Africa and Africa dark.

The French far right, more often relayed by the Republican right and left, is on the offensive today on these issues and distills in society a sense of fear means the permanent pariah in the guise imprecise the Muslim. The recent occupation of the Mosque of Poitiers by a small group of extreme right is an illustration of the rise of Islamophobia which is an incentive to racial hatred. But an unspoken of this article is disturbing when he denounces the attack by the fascist Soral the Muslim theologian Tariq Ramadan, it is unclear whether the author takes only criticism Soral ... or s' expresses support for Tarik Ramadan. The second article is embarrassing advantage. Certainly, Caroline Fourest in his fight against Islamism, objectively plays the game of "useful idiot" in the service of the theses of the extreme right. By fighting against specific Islamism, lower bound and Judaic Christian fundamentalisms, fosters objectively racist reflexes against people from North Africa or sub-Saharan Africa.

Islamophobia incites racial hatred
But the one hand, we find the same ambiguous about Tariq Ramadan on that may appear on this occasion as an ally Alternative libertarian and, secondly, whatever the ambiguities of speech Carolina Fourest, we can not not accept the parallel between the fight against far-right activist and a critique of deviations of a left-wing activist who has strayed. Our fight against Islamophobia finds its coherence in a critique of all religions. Sure Alternative libertarian defends freedom of worship. Islam is not a religion that frightens us more than any other and affirm our respect for men and women, our comrades of social struggle, which believers say. But putting our beliefs atheists and rationalists under wraps would be a mistake. Libertarian alternative in its positions, defends criticism of all religions, as it is true that among the main vectors of alienation and the role of the Libertarian Communists is to undergo a radical critique. In this period of financial crisis, social and ecological, it is possible to do without a review affirmed religions, all religions.
