This is horrifying but revealing. So now we know what the left's true agenda really is.
"Embracing political Islamism" is a fancy way of saying everyone must convert to Islam or accept the status of the dhimma under Islamic law.
David Milibrand urging all sides to embrace “political Islamism” for the sake of democracy is like urging all women to embrace prostitution for the sake of chastitiy. There is nothing democratic about political Islam. It is, far and away, the most brutal and extreme system of governance on the face of the earth.
The urbane savage Miliband explains that bringing "political Islam’ – into the democratic process is a good thing not a bad thing." Tell that to the Christians and other religious minorities persecuted, subjugated and slaughtered under poltiical islam. Tell that to the women forced into marriage, honor killed, burka-clad. This submission to Islamic supremacism from a former foreign secretary is monstrous. And yet the enemedia reports it like it is a reasonable position. It's akin to supporting Nazism under Hitler.
David Miliband urges leaders to embrace ‘political Islamism’ in Egypt The Financial Times, July 14, 2013
David Miliband, the former foreign secretary, has broken ranks with world leaders by describing the military intervention in Egypt as a “coup” and urging all sides to embrace “political Islamism” for the sake of democracy.
Mr Miliband – who will leave British politics to start his new post as president and chief executive of the International Rescue Committee in New York this summer – was speaking in a valedictory interview on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show. The interview also marked Mr Marr’s return to work after suffering a stroke six months ago. The broadcaster is expected to be back full-time in September.
While US President Barack Obama and David Cameron, the UK prime minister, have avoided any explicit criticism of the military takeover in Cairo, Mr Miliband said: “I think we’ve got to be clear this was a coup.” He added that “the entry of Islamist parties – so-called ‘political Islam’ – into the democratic process is a good thing not a bad thing, that political prisoners need to be released, and genuinely democratic politics restarted in Egypt”.
This also challenges Mr Miliband’s former boss Tony Blair, the former UK prime minister and current Middle East envoy, who backed the army’s intervention on the grounds that it was better than the chaos caused by popular opposition to Egypt’s Islamist leader, Mohamed Morsi.
Mr Miliband suggested that for Mr Morsi’s supporters, “the martyrdom of the Muslim Brotherhood and the suppression of the Muslim Brotherhood is their greatest recruiting sergeant”, while acknowledging there were “worries” that the army has not got a longer-term plan for running the country.
Meanwhile, the former foreign secretary said his relationship with his brother, Ed, was “healing” in the wake of their bitter battle for the Labour leadership.
“The truth is that these things, you can never erase them from memory or history. But Ed and I are brothers for life. That is something that you value and that you nurture, whatever the difficulty of the circumstances,” he explained.
Comparing the brothers to Wimbledon tennis finalists Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, Mr Miliband said: “You’ve got to try and say, there are the Murrays of this world who win and there are the Djokovics who come second. You’ve got to be gracious when you don’t win.’’
However, in a warning to the Labour party, the former foreign secretary also rejected the idea that a coalition in 2015 was inevitable, pointing out the Conservatives could still win an outright majority.
“I actually think the conventional assumption that we are bound to get a coalition is wrong,” he said. “I actually think that in the end the British people will take a view and I think that is a great prize for Labour; the danger is that could be a great prize for the Tories as well.”
He did, nevertheless, praise his brother’s actions in taking on the unions, referring to this as “Labour’s Arab spring”.
