Daniel Pipes,
...
"Foreign Jihadism" is something that was created by the US to achieve its cold war ambition of bringing down the USSR. Osama and Al-Zawahiri are products of the US misuse of Jihad. This misuse of Jihad is something that was being championed through America's proxies in the Arab World. The first culprit that should be sqarely held responsible for having gone out of its way to threaten international peace and security is none other than the US. The Islamic extremism you are seeing today is just a case of chickens going back to roost. This a view has was explained best by Mandela in his interview with the Newsweek immediately after 9/11.

If Islam is a medieval religion with an outdated set of laws, why are your fellow countrymen embracing it in droves? What explanation do you have for this?

What is the militancy and moderation you are talking about in Islam? Islam is Islam without any moderation and extremism and it this aspect of Islam that has made to be universal both in time and space.

... I will advise you to call for a conference in an insitution of your choice and invite Muslim scholars. I more than believe that the Islamic World is full of scholars that can take you on academically.
