“Our age” wrote Julien Benda in 1927 in La Trahison des clercs “is indeed the age of the intellectual organization of political hatreds.”  The newest example of this organized hatred is the Conference to be held in the UK between April 17 and 19, 2015 under the auspices of the Southampton Law School. ...Read More...

The fatwa issued from a Qatari-based cleric is several years old, but it is just now that it has been getting attention in Egypt, presumably because the destruction of so many pre-islamic cities by ISIS has made the topic timely.
