The fact that people continue to use the word 'islamism' to refer to certain properties of islam shows that people are living in denial - it is islam really. Even after reading and carrying out a lot of analysis, the fundamentals of islam are not understood and need to be understood as the core properties of islam, and not as islamism - something like islam, or borrowed / modified from islam,or something from islam. no mullah or muslim in the world calls anything as islamism, they all assert that their specific version is the 'true' islam, and the other islams are false. there is nothing like islamism, only islam and people who want to be 'polite' end up being incorrect or in denial. regards. this is the other side of the same coin - fundamentalists of islam and people who want to be 'polite', but end up being wrong.
