Far from defending Muslims in the West, the left is racist towards them. That’s the conclusion of Egyptian-German Scholar Hamed Abdel-Samad in a video translated into English by MEMRI.
Abdel-Samad’s key argument is that by setting different, lower expectations for Muslims living in the West, the left is not defending the Muslim community but rather looking down on them as individuals and as a community.
Among the key quotes, Abdel-Samad says:
“They look at a Muslim and say: He will never be like us. He cannot be expected to uphold human rights, to accept criticism, or to accept dissenting views. They view Muslims as barbaric savages.”
