Terror Universities?

Speaking as someone who works in a UK university, I'm quite worried about possible jihadi recruitment on campus. Marc Shulman at Amercian Future posts on an article by Anthony Glees on this topic.
The THES seemed quite pleased that the lecturers said no to the government's proposal.

The bit that I particularly liked is this one:

Martha Mundy, a lecturer [Reader, to be precise] at the London School of Economics, dismissed the government plans as having "an overtly security-research agenda" starting from the (false) premise that there is a "link between Islamism, radicalization and terrorism."

This comment really should receive the Osama bin Laden fellow-travelling golden niqab award.

It's good to see the LSE living up to its usual high standards.
