Are YOU a 'community leader'?

In case any of you were thinking that the call upon muslim community leaders to lead the fight against terrorism seemed perfectly reasonable, consider this from our friend at Blood and Treasure Positioning muslims as living in 'commmunities', with 'leaders', is a sinister way of separating people from the wider society; of locating the problem within particular religious (and geographical, and ethnic) groups; and of emphasising their otherness. All surrogates for race. I commend the wonderful Lenin's Tomb to you for continuing, rigorous and robust demolition of such bigoted nonsense. Technorati tag:
