This week’s meeting will examine the question of how the left should view Islamic fundamentalism. The last 2 decades have seen major upheavals throughout the Middle East, including invasions and occupations by the U.S. and other imperial powers, revolutions, and civil wars.  The left needs to both champion anti-imperialism and develop a better understanding of the various political forces that are at play.  We are encouraging people to read an interview with Gilbert Achcar in the most recent issue of the International Socialist Review as background to this discussion.
