This is the only, and fairly lame, response to a posting of this article on the Green Left (i.e. DSP) Yahoo list so far. Ian Rintoul mentioned below is an ex-member of the ISO aligned to the SWP - GB. So his views are of no surprise whatsoever. Usually there is an avalanche of attacking responses to an AWL post on their Yahoogroup. Could we hope that the article hit a sore spot with the DSP?:

It is unfortunate that the only time that the AWL folk have anything
to say to this list it is premissed by their own patented take on Islam.

A comparable comment to that penned by the SA was broadcast by Ian
Rintoul(a person who is neither handicapped by being a "Castroite" nor
by speaking for the Socialist Alliance). This can be read here:
