Sohail Hashmi: Professor Hashmi is a Professor of International Relations, whose research focuses on the ethics of war, especially on the tradition of jihad. Our interview focused on the tendency of the War On Terror to conflate insurgents, jihadists, and terrorists into a single category of "enemy".
