Why Are We Doing It?

WHY WE ARE DOING IT?

We wish to defend our Country by speaking out in defense of our democratic values, our security and our liberty against the rise of Islamism.

It is important to understand and maintain the distinction between Islam as a personal faith of a large part of humankind and Islamism as a political ideology that presents itself as a religion to confuse and intimidate Muslims and non-Muslims alike. A failure to understand this and maintain the distinction is the strategic reason since 9/11 why the West is failing to confront this threat globally. If we are not strategically focused in defining and defeating the enemies of freedom, then this ideology will succeed in the West by fatally undermining liberal democracy.

Some of the most vocal advocates sounding the alarm against the rising tide of Islamism are liberal Muslims. We honour them for their courage and vow to stand alongside them in defense of freedom and democracy, at home and around the world.

Freedom of expression is the basis of human rights, the source of humanity and the mother of truth.
To block freedom of speech is to trample on human rights, to strangle humanity and to suppress the truth.”

Liu Xiaobo,
Chinese dissident and Nobel Peace Prize winner
