I wrote this article with Dr Rumana Hashem, prompted both by the death threats issued against Rumana, a Bangladeshi-born Muslim academic at a British University, and the disagreement I had earlier (supported by Rumana and other feminists) with British academics who support the organisation called Cage.
It forms part of my ongoing investigations into Islamism, and it sits alongside my life-long opposition to racism, xenophobia and its variants (e.g. discrimination against, and hostility to Muslims and Jews).
On the day the article was published in opendemocracy (3.12.15) I gave a talk at the monthly event organised by Leeds Taking Soundings based on the arguments developed in the article. The slides I used can be accessed here Islamist terror-dilemmas PDF
