    I opposed a war of liberation in Eastern Europe. I favored diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union and China. But we did insist, all of us, that the Stalinist regime was guilty of mass murder, and we would not have shaken hands or joined in a sit-down dialogue with the murderers. Diplomats can shake hands with anybody; they always wear gloves. But leftist intellectuals should set limits on whom they talk to. I am sure that Nadia would recognize this requirement with regard to the Nazis; it applies also to Stalinists—and to Islamic zealots today. What should Western leftists be doing with regard to Islam today? We should defend leftist principles of democracy and equality on every possible occasion. I don’t see anything intolerant or Manichean in this political position.
