    "Islamist" is very different from "Muslim". It implies a more radical/fundamentalist orientation.

    Consider the difference between "Christian" and "right wing fundamentaist Christian".

    On that point, I am amazed at how much radical Islam has in common with right wing Christianity. Can we just ship all of the assholes to another planet and let them duke it out?

    PS:Osiris, I think you have a very cool name. I love the cycle of myths around Osiris, Isis, horsu, Set, etc.
