On a related note, you might consider listening to the first 10-15 minutes of this morning's "Start the Week", in which Alistair Crooke, author of "Resistance: The Essence of the Islamist Revolution", argues that there is much we could learn from Islamism which, by putting human values at the heart of society, has "liberated" a whole generation of Muslims from the lonely, atomised, market-led lives we lead in the individualistic West.

The high point is probably the bit where one of his interlocutors - [I think] Penny Woolcock, director of the new John Adams opera at the ENO - compares Hamas with the US civil rights movement.
