Salman Rushdie on Islamism

A very interesting interview with Salman Rushdie by Johann Hari about the changes in Islam over the last century and the emergence of Islamism.

"If tomorrow the Israel/Palestine issue was resolved to the total happiness of all parties, it would not diminish the amount of terrorism coming out of Al Qaeda by one jot. It's not what they're after"


"Go away and die – that’s all Bin Laden wants you to do. It’s not just about Iraq, it’s about ham sandwiches and kissing in public places and sex with girls you’re not married to.” He pauses. “It’s about life.”


“so much of the left always seems to fall for fascist bastards pretending to be speaking on behalf of the masses. They’ve done it before with communism in its various forms, and here’s another bunch of fascist bastards claiming to be speaking for the downtrodden masses, and they’re falling for it again.”
Just a few tasters. It is really really good. If only there where a few more people around like Mr Rushdie
