"Together, facing the new totalitarianism"

Please read this extremely important appeal, signed by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Salman Rushdie, Bernard Henri-Lévy and Taslima Nasreen, among others.


After having overcome fascism, Nazism, and Stalinism, the world now faces a new totalitarian global threat: Islamism.

We, writers, journalists, intellectuals, call for resistance to religious totalitarianism and for the promotion of freedom, equal opportunity and secular values for all.

The recent events, which occurred after the publication of drawings of Muhammed in European newspapers, have revealed the necessity of the struggle for these universal values. This struggle will not be won by arms, but in the ideological field. It is not a clash of civilisations nor an antagonism of West and East that we are witnessing, but a global struggle that confronts democrats and theocrats.

As I said after I read the Satanic Verses - Go Rushdie and all of his kind.
