On Islam, Romney doesn’t have the slightest idea what he’s talking about

“Romney is a scary conspiracy theorist when it comes to the Muslim world, and his discourse in this regard is eerily similar to that of European far-right figures such as Anders Breivik…. he sees the Muslim world as in the grip of a congeries of pan-Islamic caliphate movements against which he wants to wage a Mormon jihad with trillions of dollars of taxpayer money. But in fact almost none of the movements he mentions has anything to do with al-Qaeda or a caliphate.”

Juan Cole assesses Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s understanding of Islam.
