Pakistan, Daesh and the Western Muslim


In the space of less than a month, the terrorist non-state known as Daesh has done more to alter the dynamics of political discourse in the West than all the ‘peace-loving’, ‘moderate’ Muslims ever did in over half a century of post-colonial economic symbiosis and cultural coexistence.

Waves upon waves of migrants from post-colonial states have settled in Europe and North America for the economic opportunity that those societies present. One of the most significant beneficiary groups have been Muslims from countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Morocco, Algeria and Somalia.
