Progressives who pride themselves as allies of Islam

Why do the president and Secretary of State Clinton think that the rest of the world will be any more open to being hectored about the nobility of homosexuality, than were the more than 30 American states which amended their constitutions to ban same-sex marriage?

Leftists should stop trampling on the dignity of Muslims by trying to flood the Third World with contraceptive pills and abortion clinics.  This is the new benighted colonialism!

An excerpt from‘FrontPage’magazine:
In the early stages of the Iraq War, George Galloway -- a British Member of Parliament and an inveterate America-hater -- gave voice to the mindset underlying the socialist left's alliance with radical Islam. Galloway was asked: "You often call for uniting Muslim and progressive forces globally. How far is it possible under current situation?" He replied:
"Not only do I think it's possible but I think it is vitally necessary and I think it is happening already. It is possible because the progressive movement around the world and the Muslims have the same enemies. Their enemies are the Zionist occupation, American occupation, British occupation of poor countries mainly Muslim countries. They have the same interest in opposing savage capitalist globalization which is intent upon homogenizing the entire world turning us basically into factory chickens which can be forced fed the American diet of everything from food to Coca-Cola to movies and TV culture. And whose only role in life is to consume the things produced endlessly by the multinational corporations. And the progressive organizations & movements agree on that with the Muslims... So on the very grave big issues of the day - issues of war, occupation, justice, opposition to globalization - the Muslims and the progressives are on the same side."

UPDATE:   Corporations are bad, apparently, unless they make things that forward-looking people need.  Here is the tale of the first commercial oral contraceptive ("The prevailing wisdom was that no healthy woman would ever willingly take a drug that neither treated nor prevented disease.")

The Pill was manufactured by Searle – the company headed from 1977-85 by one Donald Rumsfeld.
