Title Roots of Muslim Rage Revisited.

Abstract Since 9/11, America and many of its allies have been engaged in a War on Terror. Much has been written about this war, the politics governing it, its successes and failures, and the way ahead. Much less attention has been given to the conflict's root cause itself. This is unfortunate, because the war's underpinning policy and strategies are based on misconceptions about Islam and the problem we are facing. Therefore, what should have been a cure, in fact in many ways aggravated the problem by widening the gap between two cultures. It is essential to set this right, because with the Arab Spring now tearing through the Arab World, increasing tension in the Middle East, and a still very angry Iran, we must understand better in order to properly respond. In this paper, I offer an alternative explanation for the turmoil in the Islamic world, as well as some advice on how to better approach it.
