In an interview with PJ Media, Muslim reformer M. Zuhdi Jasser argued that the leftist attack dog the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has become a tool of Islamists across the world, including ISIS. By attacking Muslim reformers who are striking at the root of jihad, the SPLC is abetting radical Islamic terror in the name of identity politics.
Jasser, founder and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), expressed his support for Maajid Nawaz, a British politician and founder of the anti-Islamist organization the Quilliam foundation, who sued the SPLC for defamation last year, after the group labeled him an "anti-Muslim extremist." (Hilariously, SPLC cited his bachelor party at a strip club as one reason he's an "anti-Muslim extremist.") Jasser argued that the SPLC intends to silence reformers like himself and Nawaz because their cause is inconvenient for identity politics.
