A Historic Step in Austria? :: Daniel Pipes


This ought to be a statement that any political party, anywhere, ought to be able to get behind. It's from the new Austrian coalition government. I find nothing wrong with it and a lot right. Especially the fight against political Islam, which is spot on because that ideology is explicitly out to replace western liberal democracy. 
But I'd bet that those in the Left will find fault: it's xenophobic, or racist, or islamophobic, or whatever. 
Still:
Austria guarantees freedom of belief and religion but fights political Islam. By political Islam we mean groups and organizations whose ideological foundation is Islam, and which seek to change the basic political and social order by rejecting our constitution and Islamizing society. Political Islam, which can lead to radicalization, antisemitism, violence and terrorism, has no place in our society.
