    Thanx. And I thought imperialism was a "Western" trait. Yet on this site an
    apt quote from Bassam Tibi: "The goal of the Islamists is a new imperial,
    absolutist Islamic world power."

    And what should we do in response to the threat they obviously represent to
    us? Offer an olive branch? Do you think they are into rational and peaceful
    dialogue over tea about their grievances with the Great Satan and his
    Zionist pals?
