    Rapid change and defeat in wars unleashes radical right wing extremists. The blatant superiority of Western society and technology over Arab governments and societies incapable of coping with the changes necessary to deal with reality induces reactionary forces. Just as when in the 1960s America dragged the reactionary south into the 20th century, a reaction was unleashed which has dominated American society since 1968; the repeated defeats and humiliations of Arabs by Israel and the West have created reactionary responses in the Arab world. The reactionaries unleashed by the civil rights and anti-war movements of the 60s saw like causes with the Islamists who were reacting to the Israeli and US presence in the mideast. Reagan begat Al Queada and the Taliban, his Freedom Fighters, much as Hamas, a reaction to the failure of the Arab Nationalism of the 50s was fostered by Begin. Right wing reactionaries of Israel and the USA fed the rise of right wing reactionaries of Islam. The inability of the right to cope with reality is the source of the situation Lou.
