Victor Davis Hanson, writing in NRO Online, says Islamists are cowardly, fickle, and attuned to the current political pulse. First, it was anti-Semitic secular fascism, because Hitler and Mussolini seemed successful, then Soviet-style atheistic Baathism and tribal Pan-Arabism, and now it is Islamism. Each time one -ism was defeated, another -ism reared its ugly head. Hanson says, "So we press on."
