    But when I hear the word Islamist I tend to think "Republican".  The way I've heard the AK in Turkey described (pious rural businessmen who despise the liberal urban elites) its hard not to think of them as Republicans.  And most other parties and politicians I've read about that are described as Islamists seem to be pretty run of the mill religious conservatives.

    That's why I always think its so hilarious when our right demonizes their right.  You guys are on the same side, stupids!

    So instead of trying to delegitimize the term Islamist, maybe "Christianist" should start gaining wider traction.

    There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
