The Charlie Hebdo editorial did create a lot of confusion among Left liberals. Many liberals in the west thought it was Islamophobic and racist. But for those who had directly witnessed the fascist nature of the religion,, there was not much confusion. May be real life experience determines our perspective.
Here listen to what Eiynah, the Pakistani atheist, now living in Canada, have to say in her podcast.
She says :
We must be wary,,careful to walk that very thin line between Islamist apologist parts of Left and the anti Muslim parts of the Right. True secularism resides somewhere in between those extremes. Somewhere I think Charlie Hebdo hits perfectly. Which is why it causes scurrying panic among false rebels who for some reason wish to hold anti liberal religions in high regard.
