There’s an excellent article today by Saad Mehio today in the New York Times:

So what comes after the Taliban and Osama bin Laden are finished? Probably more Talibans and new Osama bin Ladens. This is the sad and shocking reality that we must confront. It will happen apart from all the fanfare surrounding America’s military triumph in Afghanistan and all the other achievements of this so- called war on terror. Why? Because the Taliban and Mr. bin Laden are not isolated cases but manifestations of a complex, and potentially durable, sociopolitical phenomenon.
Basically, this phenomenon involves the immoral, unscrupulous and irreligious exploitation of Islam as a political weapon–by everyone. The West, the United States, Arab and other Muslim tyrannies have all used the weapon of Islam. And all are paying their different prices for it.

How Islam and Politics Mixed
