"Islam, even as a horrendous, collectivist, totalitarian ideology shorn of its doctrinal elements, would have remained in the Mideast but for the fact that political correctness – or the policy of moral non-judgment of collectivist ideas, of toleration of the "different" or non-Western moral systems – gave it an impetus it could never generate on its own."

I am afraid you are wrong. It i not political correctness, it's grand US strategy to use jihad against communism and anti-American nationalism in the Middle East that made of Islam the well-armed and well-trained raging monster we are seeing now. How it has all happened is well explained in Robert Dreyfuss' book "Devil's game How the Untied States unleashed fundamentalist Islam" whom I once mentioned.
