I really don't the evidence is sufficient to claim that this new
war is all about Islamic fundamentalism. That is not the way it
has been defined by the powers that be in our own country,
certainly. And I see no evidence that terrorism is restricted
to Islamic fundamentalist nor that a real jihad (which would
involve a lot more than a few terrorist attacks) is in the
works. So where does this assertion come from?
