I am not going to respond to your classless personal attacks.

I have not coined the term Radical Islamist. However, there is such a thing; I offer, radical christians. You might also be interested in knowing that the term "fundamentalist", evidently, was first used by Christians to refer to their kind of fundamentalists in the middle ages.

To respond to your question it should be enough for one to mention the very Radical Islamist, Osama Bin Ladin. Unless you have been living in a cave in the past decade or two, you would know that he was a CIA operative and supplied with all the trimminigs you talk about. If you were living in a cave, though, you might have met him there!!
