      i hear you.
      but, i have a problem with Sullivan’s use of “islamist” as a word to describe evil actions of some people who are muslim.
      especially as it violates his thesis:
      “We are fighting for a world in which destructive technology need not collide with fierce religious fundamentalism to annihilate us all; for a world in which dialogue across cultures and religions and regions (even within America) is essential if we are to survive.”

      the very real bogey-men here are ‘religious fundamentalists’ … not islamists. and the ‘dialogue across cultures and religions’ he calls essential to our survival will never occur until we stop subconscious (perhaps) use of the term ‘islamist’ as … evil.

      I think it’s pretty clear that he is referring to the political ideology, not the religion.

      excellent point about the use of islamist and I am ashamed to admit I did not catch that on my first read through.

      but I completely agree with the assessments of the dangerous abuse of the constitution that the current administration has employed and the outrage we as a nation should be expressing over it.

      oh, and I am doing naughty things with your Olaf fone
