Lunatic fringes

I've not had time to review everything I've read lately. On holiday I finally managed to finish the Islamist, the very personal account of a young Asian lad who joined the ranks of Islamic militants. It wasn't a particularly enjoyable read, but certainly gave some glimmer of hope that nutters can be seen for what they are eventually, though they amy cause havoc on the way. It's always amused me that the extreme left (SWP, WRP, CP, Respect Party), Islamic loons and the extreme right (BNP, NF, Respect Party, etc) seem to fall out with one another very quickly. The kind of unstable personality that is attracted to them also seems to be incapable of compromise, reason and "agreeing to differ" that they split frequently as a result.
