He has to say, or he thinks he has to say, "Islamism." You and I know better, and I suspect the redolently-named Thibault de Montbrial does too. It's Islam, it's what's in the Qur'an, what's in the Hadith (in the most "authentic" recensions  of Al-Bukhari and Muslim), what's in the Sira, what's in the ...Read More...
