STATEMENT BY THE NATIONAL-ANARCHIST MOVEMENT

The National-Anarchist Movement (N-AM) wishes to disassociate itself from the recent decision by the Bay Area National Anarchists (BANA) to stage a 'Burn the Koran' event on 22nd April 2011. Not only is this tactic extremely counter-productive, it also runs contrary to the free-thinking ethos of National-Anarchism itself. Indeed, we can hardly complain if our own spiritual, cultural and ethnic identity is attacked and denigrated if we are willing to do the same to others. Indeed, by seeking to antagonise Muslims through the destruction of the Qur'an, apparently because of the possibility that Islam will "be implemented all across the globe including our homelands through force of violence if necessary", BANA is ignoring the fact that only a minority of Muslims - most notably the aggressive Wahhabi sect, which is denounced by millions of Sunni and Shi'a Muslims alike - actually believe in pursuing such a strategy. Furthermore, despite the fact that the N-AM does not welcome the presence of Muslim immigrants in Europe, we believe that the Islamic religion is far more diverse than the blood-drenched hypocrites in London and Washington would like us to believe and that a more sensible approach would be to build links with Muslim communities in order to establish common ground. Not with the more unreasonable elements, of course, but with those who also have an aversion to Zionism, International Finance and the New World Order.
