I wish more people than the 12 authors of this widely published manifesto would make the distinction between the religion of Islam and the "ideology" of Islamism, between muslims and islamists.

The attentive reader will notice that "Stalinism" is condemned on equal with Fascism and Nazism, not communism which relates to the former approximately as conservatism to the latter two. The parallel is obvious: as conservatives in many countries had to fight the legacy of Nazism and fascism following WWII, and many communists are still fighting the legacy of the failed Soviet Union, muslims all over the world may find themselves in a difficult situation because of islamofobia and a perceived complicity with the excesses committed by some Islamists, purportedly in the name of Islam.
