Starting from the observation that the editor-in-chief of the Times of Oman is justifying the Holocaust, Breath of the Beast asks a question often on our minds: how can the postmodern left justify its variously implicit and explicit alliance with the seventh-cum-twentieth century fascism of today's orthodox or radical Islam?
