Richard Dawkins is in a fortunate position, for having reached the pinnacle of a long and distinguished academic career, he has nothing to fear from other academics when speaking out over issues that would end the careers of younger postgraduate researchers and colleagues. He has reputation and money enough to deflect such politically correct flak. Whilst commonly portrayed as a scourge of religion in general, in the video interview below he shows himself to be irrevocably opposed to Islam in particular, which he singles out as being a particularly backward and obscurantist belief system.
