“The fear that propelled Donald Trump requires no logic”

By Maajid Nawaz, whom I’ve seen give a talk at TEDx Brighton:

Only a new commitment to the universality of human rights and human dignity can lift us out of this current quagmire. But that will require foot soldiers of peace who preach what we have in common rather than how we are different; what we have gained, rather than what we have lost; and what we seek to achieve rather than what we have failed to accomplish.

Let that sink in: this post was written by a Muslim on an Israeli site — gives you an idea of the gravity of the situation!
