Whose al-Qaida problem? Sasha Abramsky - openDemocracy

Whose al-Qaida problem? Sasha Abramsky - openDemocracy

This article brings up the conflicting approaches of the left and right wings on the Al-Qaida issue. The author of the article was in both the cities (NYC and London) during the terrorist attacks. Her political views have shifted since those two incidents.

When it comes to the vision of world's future, I obviously prefer an open society with liberty than an autocratic system that the Islamic fundamentalists want to set up.

This also worries me because the Islamic fundamentalists are gathering momentum in Pakistan. It might cause political and cultural upheaval in the sub-continent thereby endangering the fragile peace negotiations in progress between India and Pakistan.
