‘Tubed, as predicted.

Rusty Shackleford read my last post on Beck and came up with a Venn diagram and analysis of his own. This point is important and worth bearing in mind while you watch:

Jihadis may be either subsets of Salafism or of Khomeinism. Al Qaeda is a Salafist jihad organization. Hizbollah are Khomeinists.

Which brings up a broader point about the roots of two very different problems that we face, and which are often mixed up.

a) The threat of violence from jihadis.
b) The threat of oppression from Islamists.
