The United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam
The United States has supported radical Islamic activism over the past six decades sometimes overtly, sometimes covertly, and is thus partly to blame for the emergence of Islamic terrorism as a world-wide phenomenon. First. The US support for the Muslim Brotherhood against Gamal Abdel Nasser in Egypt, the U.S. role in lining up religious radicals in the coup ousting Prime Minister Muhammad Mosaddeq in Iran.

The decades-long ties between Washington and the House of Saud, the U.S. backing of the mujahideen in Afghanistan, and even the Reagan administration's tentative ties with Ayatollah Khomeini's Islamic Republic, illuminated by the Iran-contra affair. Last but not least, the Bush administration working with Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani in post-Saddam Iraq.


The United States has often supported those opposed to the Islamists (such as Hosni Mubarak and Saddam Hussein) and has taken forceful positions in many other instances in which Islam or Islamism was not a major factor. The Islamic Revolution in Iran is best explained by U.S. ties to the shah's regime.


Finally, don't fault Muslims or Islam but fault U.S. diplomacy for its excessively intrusive, regime-changing approach to the Middle East.
