in response to reader comment: 'How the United States helped unleash fundamentalist Islam'

I agree with Ianus (Poland). The US has consistently supported Islamic fundamentalist regimes, supported them, and protected them. The protection of Saudi Arabia and mollycoddling it is the most obvious example. Who is the military ally in the "war on terror"? Pakistan, which has overtly and covertly supported with arms and funds, most rabidly Jihadist forces in South Asia -inlcuding Afghanistan.

At ideological level, it has gone out of the way , in the most discriminatory way, to accommodate Jihadist sensibilities ; an example being the top US military man asking Pastor Jones to stop his Quran burning.

Unless the US and other countries learn to punish Jihadists and Islamic regimes with extreme prejudice mercilessly , Islamists will think they can twist other people's arms with rioting
