Abstract

Forte writes that scholars, like himself, who have studied Islam . . . have been dismayed to see the triumph, in Arab lands and beyond, of the Salafist, or fundamentalist, movement over its competitors. He also agrees with author, journalist and former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy who decries the clear and present threat [radical Islam] poses to Western civilization today.
