Salma Yaqoob writes for The Guardian. She used to lead Respect.
She's a darling of the inverted/positive racists who make up the Leftist middle-class. She has (halal) dinner-party bookings with such people going all the way into 2020.
Recently she's used the words "witch-hunt" and "hysteria" in relation to the Islamist school-takeover plot. She also, predictably, talked about "Islamophobia".
In 2010, in response to investigations into the various Islamic terror plots in Birmingham, she talked about a "witch-hunt" and "hysteria". She also, predictably, talked about "Islamophobia".
She has said the same about all - and I mean all! - efforts against Muslim grooming, terrorism, female genital mutilation, "honour killings", etc.
Are you getting the picture yet?
Salma Yaqoob wants precisely nothing to be done about any of these things. Then again, she's a Muslim who strongly sympathises with political Islam; as well as with (atheistic) revolutionary socialism.
