ONE USEFUL IDIOT GETS IT RIGHT

Despite her ludicrous views on Ahmadinejad's "wipe Israel off the map" comment, full marks to Yassmine Mather for speaking at the Yurukoglu Memorial Lecture tomorrow. Her lecture is entitled: "Political Islam and how to Fight it - a Communist Perspective".

From the flyer I was handed earlier:
It is of absolute necessity that the communist movement takes a principled stand against the rising tide of political Islam. Communists have a duty to exhibit its counter-revolutionary and reactionary character.
Either she's been listening to The Hitch or else she's just decided that enough is enough and that the Left really shouldn't be cosying up to far right Islamists. Regardless of her views on Marxist hegemony, at least she's got this one right.

It's at:
Marx House (where else)
37A Clerkenwell Green
London
EC1R ODU
from 1.30-5.00pm
and comes courtesy of the Union Of Turkish Progressives In Britain. Unfortunately I'm away at a head-wetting tomorrow, but I'd be intrigued to see who turns up.
