Anarchism, Secularism, Islam

This is the editorial from a new edition of the journal Anarchist Studies on the headscarf issue in France. Looks interesting.

The journal is a positive sign that some parts of the anarchist movement has broken with the nineteenth century fundamentalist form of secularism that has scarred it.

But also a worrying sign that - like sections of the mainstream left - the vacuum has been filled by a postmodernist relativism that all too often descends into a position of fellow travelling and apologetics for Islamoafascism.
