This is the second part of my video discussion with Khaled Hassan, an expert on the Arab world, on the relationship between Islam and Islamism. You can watch the first part, first published on 16 October, HERE.
A reminder that although we agree on many things, in particular the poisonous nature of Islamism, there are important points of disagreement. I essentially see Islamism as a political movement in a religious guise whereas he sees the problems as rooted in the faith itself. The key points of disagreement are clearer here than in the first part of the discussion.
Khaled Hassan is an Egyptian political risk and intelligence analyst with over 13 years of experience. His research interests include digital threats, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Arabic-speaking mis/disinformation and propaganda, radicalisation and terrorism.
