Using the word 'Islamicism' may be popular with a certain kind of Christian but it will only make matters worse as it is extremism of any faith or non faith that is the problem.


There is a movie called "Kingdom of Heaven" that documents; in the time of the Crusades, where an extremist Christian military leaders attacks a Islam community and starts a war where the Christians are defeated and leave Israel.


Canada is now committed to training troops in Afghanistan and to do this well it will take most of Canada's military resources even though the number of committed troops in Afghanistan is relatively few as it will be very difficult to develop an unbiased point of view. 


To train these troops people must be committed to meeting the Afghans on Islamic interfaith terms or the project will never succeed.


If you want more of my help with this you will have hire me as a consultant or I will just make brief comments like this.
