Political Islam has frequently been in comparison to ideological activities of the prior comparable to fascism or Christian theocracy. yet are such analogies legitimate? How should still the Western international this day reply to the demanding situations of political Islam? Taking an unique method of solution this query, Confronting Political Islam compares Islamism's fight with secularism to different lengthy ideological clashes in Western background. via reading the earlier conflicts that experience torn Europe and the Americas--and how they've been supported by means of underground networks, fomented radicalism and revolution, and caused international interventions and foreign conflicts--John Owen attracts six significant classes to illustrate that a lot of what we predict approximately political Islam is incorrect.
Owen makes a speciality of the origins and dynamics of twentieth-century struggles between Communism, Fascism, and liberal democracy; the past due eighteenth- and nineteenth-century contests among monarchism and republicanism; and the 16th- and seventeenth-century wars of faith among Catholics, Lutherans, Calvinists, and others. Owen then applies rules realized from the successes and blunders of governments in the course of those conflicts to the modern debates embroiling the center East. He concludes that ideological struggles last more than most folk presume; ideologies should not monolithic; overseas interventions are the norm; a nation can be either rational and ideological; an ideology wins while states that exemplify it outperform different states throughout a number measures; and the ideology that wins could be a surprise.
Looking on the heritage of the Western international itself and the fraught questions over how societies might be ordered, Confronting Political Islam upends a number of the traditional knowledge in regards to the present upheavals within the Muslim world.

After the Sept. 11 fee concluded in 2004 that the U.S. was once engaged in a struggle with terrorists and not learned it, they reasoned that “a failure of mind's eye” had avoided us from seeing terrorism coming. In impact, american citizens have been easily not able, or in reality disabled, to fathom that there have been those that hated and adverse our democracy with such ferocity. yet after billions of bucks and virtually a decade combating a struggle within the heart East, can we leave out the chance back?
With penetrating perception and candor, Walid Phares, Fox information terrorism and center East specialist and a consultant in worldwide innovations, argues fierce race for keep watch over of the center East is on, and the world’s destiny may possibly depend upon the result. but no longer a failure of mind's eye, yet fairly, of schooling has left american citizens with out crucial details at the genuine roots of the emerging Jihadi risk. Western democracies demonstrate a perilous false impression of accurately who opposes democracy and why. in truth, the West ignores the large and disparate forces in the Muslim world—including a brotherhood opposed to democracy that's battling to deliver the zone below totalitarian control—and crucially underestimates the decided iteration of sweet sixteen feverishly waging a grassroots revolution towards democracy and human rights.
As terror moves widen from big apple to Mumbai and battlefields rage from Afghanistan to Iraq, many tricky questions are left unanswered, or maybe explored: the place are the anti-Jihadists and the democrats within the Muslim international? Does the center East particularly reject democracy? Do the peoples of the quarter want the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood, or Hezbollah over liberals and seculars? And is there fairly no actual desire that freedom and democracy can be successful over the Islamist caliphate?
Phares explores how the unfastened international can certainly win the clash with the Jihadists, yet he says, now not by utilizing the strategies, guidelines, and methods it has hired to this point. He urges coverage makers to first determine the probability and outline its ideology, or there'll be no victory.
The Coming Revolution is an essential corrective step within the world’s battle opposed to terrorism and crucial studying that truly and explosively illustrates the untold tale of a fight to figure out if the center East can eventually succeed in freedom during this century—or if this planet can hinder the differently inevitable end result which may switch our social and political panorama eternally.
