This academic article is worth a read. The five American political perspectives are fascinating and their apparent approach to Islam provides a useful framework for analysis. For me, the framework can easily and most interesting be applied to contempory UK politics. Unfortunately, the article is diminished intellectually by the the author not declaring his bias. Also I found the approach to Islam too simplistic. It worth reflecting on the wider the publication of this article, does it represent a growing Far-Left, Pro-Palastinian bias in academia? Thoughts?
