There was always, in the past, a limit to […] hatred. Letters would be signed with the writer’s address. Or if not, they would be so ill-written as to be illegible. Not any more. In 26 years in the Middle East, I have never read so many vile and intimidating messages addressed to me. Many now demand my death. And last week, the Hollywood actor John Malkovich did just that, telling me the Cambridge Union that he would like to shoot me.
