Dear Dr Cole
I am a great admirer of your work, which is why I am so disappointed at your
characterising those who have been engaged in the Irish anti-imperialist
struggle as "IRA terrorists" in this outlandish hypothetical situation:
"If a Muslim group stormed (and damaged) the Basilica of St. Peter in Rome
to remove a band of, say, IRA terrorists who had holed up in it, do you
really think Western Christians would side with the Muslims?" [Washington
Post Online Discussion].
A more sympathetic history-based understanding of that struggle can be found
