Conflating Islamism with Islam doesn't help your argument (especially if
you're making a fuss about definitions). Islamism is a political
movement, influenced by various western-derived political threads
including communism. It's not a religion.
And I'm not aware of a definition of anarchism that specifies that it's
anti-religion. But even if it were so, that wouldn't mean that
anarchists must approve of bigotry, and agree with bigots; on the
contrary. And you haven't questioned the view that EDL are bigots.
