The spirit of the Hitler-Stalin pact lives on in the coalition between Western leftists and the Islamist religious Right. Same question accures in Britsh left.
Those on the left who clung to this suspicion of Islamism were in the minority once the Stop the War Coalition began working with the Islamists of the Muslim Association of Britain. The Trotskyist group Alliance for Workers’ Liberty objected to working with the Muslim Association of Britain due to its links to the Muslim Brotherhood, and suggested that the left should be working with secular, progressive Muslim groups instead. The Weekly Worker newspaper took a similar stand, pointing out in one article that:
At the same time as our secularist and Marxist comrades are being murdered by groups allied to the MAB (Muslim Association of Britain), we are lining ourselves up as co-sponsors of demonstrations. This is like communists lining up with Nazi sympathisers on demonstrations during World War II, because we are both against British imperialism.
