Paranoid Anti-Islamist Secularists

"On the most superficial level, one can easily see the projection on to Islam of a universal cosmic struggle in the invocation by less-than-pious Christians to be fighting the same war that was fought at Tours and Lepanto," suggests Jack Ross — The Paranoid Style of Anti-Islamism. "Yet it goes deeper," notes Mr. Ross, leading to "a sense of martyrdom, and it is this martyrdom complex, distinctly in the name of secularism, [in which] the whole paranoid style, is most evident."
