"Islamo-fascism" again - more food for thought

I'm going to write more on why this is an ugly phrase for cynical politics soon, but I heard another short radio programme today discussing the use of the phrase and its well worth a listen if you are interested in the implications of political discourse. If you want the show as a downloadable MP3 you'll have to find the show "Here and Now" (from WBUR/NPR) on Itunes, otherwise just click here and listen with realplayer. Speaking are Peter Canellos, the Boston Globe's Washington bureau chief and Igor Lukes, professor of history and international relations at Boston University.
