Our Resolve

Jason's Liberty and Culture has an excellent article, Our Resolve. Here's a sample, but be sure to read it all.

Last year I wrote about the Islamic Revival. This phrase is used by critics and supporters—often as the preferred terminology instead of Islamism, militant Islam, radical Islam, fundamentalist Islam and other Western neologisms. The reason it is rarely used in the West is that it implies that what we are seeing today is just Islam—full undiluted original Islam. Sometimes this is called Salafist Islam, as if this was a sect within a larger religion. But the term just means the Islam of Mohammad and the first four rightly guided caliphs, i.e. original Islam.

Thanks. It's good to see others who get the point. I hope we can wake-up more people.
