But who'd they exploit?

Sounds good to me. Let Islamists go Communist -- it would be the death of them. But if they were to try full blown Communism (revolution and all), who would be their exploited masses, their useful idiots? Not armed Americans. Would it be Nation of Islam types who still, zombie-like, chant the leftist rhetoric?

No, unfortunately, Islamists aren't stupid enough to destroy themselves with that old hat game. They have something much more pungent in mind. Besides, they're not about to let themselves be used by the elitist non-Islamist Communists. Farmers, poor third world masses, ghettoized city poor -- can be used. Islamists -- no way, unfortunately.
