Putting the 'Amis' in 'Islamism' (A Followup)

I originally referred to Martin Amis's thoughts on 'Islamism' here. Though it's latish now, i’d like to point to two very articulate responses to Amis's article, which originally appeared in The Guardian.

Riposte one is by Dave Bonta who guested over at Modal Minority with the reminder that 9-11 (the 2006 version) marks one hundred years of the beginning of Satyagraha.

Riposte two is by Pankaj Mishra, whose article in The Guardian does the typical Pankaj Mishra thing where he explains every! thing! as if we’ve been away in another universe and haven’t kept in touch with earth happenings for ages. Still and all, a good article.
