Muslim Reformer Attacked by SPLC

Maajid Nawaz and Ayaan Hirsi Ali

The Southern Poverty Law Center has in recent years taken to labeling an array of legitimate Christian and other organizations as “hate groups.”

These targets now have an unlikely ally in anti-Islamist British politician Maajid Nawaz. He has been added to group’s hate lists and is suing for defamation, reports Tyler O’Neil at PJ Media.

Indeed, given the way Nawaz angers Muslim extremists and the way the SPLC riles up left-wing nuts (a man who shot up the Family Research Council, a Christian group, in 2012 said he did so because he was following the SPLC’s hate map), it’s an issue of personal safety as well: “From the murder of Theo van Gogh, to the Scalise shooting, to the terror committed against the FRC, it is no hyperbole for Nawaz to say that the SPLC’s list is putting his very life in danger.”
