Thank heavens for Peter Tatchell. There is an unholy alliance at the moment between the left wing (which I would call myself a member of) and Islamic groups who preach an atavistic gospel of homophobia, antisemitism, misogyny and paranoia. To use the Palestinian cause an excuse to spout anti-Jewish, anti-American, anti-gay theories is a disgrace.
Paul… I reckon many on the Left have started (slowly) to realise the fascistic nature of fundamentalist Islam. The two are are totally opposed at so many, many levels. Persoanlly, I have chosen to nail my flag to the post of the the Trade Union and Green Party movements.
