The ‘Counter-Jihad’ movementThe global trend feeding anti-Muslim hatred
The report covers the right-wing political parties, who are increasingly using anti-Muslim rhetoric to garner votes. It explores the websites and bloggers who propagate scare stories about Islam. It covers the street gangs, like the English Defence League (EDL), and the like-minded groups they inspire around Europe. It investigates the funders and the foundations which bankroll parts of the movement. Perhaps controversially, it also includes some commentators whose insensible stridency, combined with a degree of credibility within mainstream opinion, help feed the climate of anti-Muslim hatred. Of particular interest, it reveals some inter-connections between the different strands of this movement.
