Behind the Times paywall, from David Aaronovitch's review (£) of Salman Rushdie's new memoir:
But it's here that I want to note what to me is most depressing and revealing and perhaps most significant about Joseph Anton. It is a conceit of the British that, had fascism come to this country or we been invaded, then our reaction would have been very different from that of, say, the French. In those non-Muslims who attacked Rushdie, who blamed him for stirring things up, who argued that the book should not be published in paperback, who said that he had brought the danger on himself and publicly resented the costs of his protection, you see the same arguments and psychology that would have justified collaboration with totalitarianism.
Amen to that: there are nearly always collaborators and apologists.
