Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by Jacob Berger (Israel), Aug 28, 2002 at 08:59

This is not a comment on this article rather a question, but I didn't know the forum to raise this in. You speak of militant Islam, a phenomenon that I too can see...living in Sydney I have heard reports that a Hizbullah cell had been discovered within my city.
Where did this militant Islam start? You write that it's based on a desire to change the existing structures, imposing an Islamic view upon the system. Well from where did this desire stem? Further, how does a militant Islamic State such as Saudi Arabia differ from merely an Islamic state such as Jordan?

Could you either forward me an article (I've only been a member of forum since late July) that you may have written previously on these topics or write back.

Thank you very much,
Jake Berger

Good questions, and I address most of them in my recently published book, Militant Islam Reaches America (W.W. Norton), which will be available in Australia in a few weeks.
