No, but seriously, such scholarship of that sort as I once had is summarised in my comment upthread, entitled "we need some definitions." I freely confess I may be way wrong in some strict sense.

It should not be too hard to find another less fraught term to refer to the Taliban and the Wahaabists (sp?) and such.
