Rod Thornton's essay 'Radicalisation by Universities or Radicalisation at Universities', also available on Scribd, makes many references to this pamphlet. Readers may wish to examine the original: Dr Thornton states that the authors, Daly and Matthews, 'had written a booklet that was, however obliquely, basically making out that Sabir and Yezza were involved in terrorism' (109). The pamphlet is not really about the arrests (it's about the way liberal academics and the media responded to the arrests), but in as much as it discusses them, it states Yezza and Sabir 'were quite properly released without charge' (17). The authors also state, 'There is no doubt about the repressive nature of the anti-terrorism laws' (23), which they do discuss, and do strongly condemn. Their only comment about Dr Thornton was that his initial intervention (in 2008), was 'refreshingly sober, and its author seemed interested in the truth rather than in grinding axes, having largely stayed above the media melee.' (35). His actions, they note, were 'perhaps naive', in showing some lack of understanding about how large organisations work, but they concluded that his letter to management was 'serious and sincere' (36).
