Richard Dawkins: We are being betrayed by the "nice" people

From an interview on Slate:

Ryan Hooper: You have turned your attention to Islam recently. Why is that?

Richard Dawkins: I think my love of truth and honesty forces me to notice that the liberal intelligentsia of Western countries is betraying itself where Islam is concerned. It's stymied by the conflict between being against misogyny and discrimination against women on the one hand, and on the other by the terror of being thought racist—driven by misunderstanding Islam as though it were a race. So people who would normally speak out against the maltreatment of women don't do it. I do fret about what I see as a betrayal by my own people, the nice liberals.

Thanks to Jihad Watch for the link.
