Progressive Opportunism

Riffat Hassan has written a letter to the puppet Musharraf complaining about his no longer being very supportive of the proggie-reactionary institute she founded in Pakistan to bring about an "Islamic Renaissance." Readers of this blog may remember that Riffat Hassan, in a fit of progressive hypocrisy, had defended puppet Musharraf when he had stated that women in Pakistan were bringing charges of rape to get a green card.

This particular letter by Riffat Hassan is revealing in many ways, because she talks about how she viewed Musharraf, and more importantly, why she had a positive view of this puppet: apparently this all had to do with the puppet's support for her bleak vision of Islam. A lot of what she describes has little to do with the Muslim umma, and more to do with her personally - i.e. when the puppet supported her personally, and her project, she was happy do be a puppet's puppet. Read the letter here..

Those who still hold out on the notions of Progressive Islam and Progressive Muslims (now mainly confined to the super elites of Muslim countries, and Ivy League Imperial Universities such as Harvard) really need to get a grip: As the name of this blog clarifies, Progressive Muslims are nothing more or less than friends of imperialism and neo-colonialism - their affiliation with puppets and with Imperialists have completely discredited them.

Yes, they still have some credibility amongst liberal-leftists, who can identify with the often Islamophobic, and stereotypical image of Muslims societies that these proggies love to perpetuate.

Article makes good points but should keep some things in mind:

1. The covert alliances between "progressives" and so-called "liberals" is actually MORE damaging (long term) than the short term overt marriages of convenience between "moderates" and neo-cons i.e. Ayaan Hirsa Ali and Irshad Manji are their own worst enemies when they stand shoulder to shoulder with neo-cons and not much work has to be done to point out their Islamic/ideological bankruptcy.

2. More investigative work needs to be done in exploring links between 'liberal' politicians and groups and so-called "moderate" and "progressive" Muslims. This is more important since it seems that unlike under the Republicans/Neo-cons, the State Dept. will be taking the lead in nurturing and promoting this from now continuing on into the next administration.
