"In brief, I believe that Islamists would make scant headway if they were not enabled by the left."

This is not true. Compare Robert Dreyfuss' excellent study "Devil's Game How the United States helped unleash fundamentalis Islam" , Metropolitan Books, 2005. One of its alternative titles is "Sixty years of support for Islamic Fundamentalism". Would you suggest that for 60 years the left has controlled the US policy enabling Islamists worldwide?
