Extremists don't show the true face of Islam
Once again, Dr Munjed Farid Al Qutob (Write Back, December 23) bravely defends Islam from the simplistic statements by hard-Right nationalists that every Muslim is a potential extremist just waiting for the opportune moment to attack innocent Western citizens.
These type of xenophobic utterances are no more true now than when I lived in England in the 1970s and was subjected to the National Front's 'Paddy' theory, dictating that every Irish person was either a covert IRA operative or a sympathiser.
