In Radical nation: How Jihad Is profitable Over Democracy within the West, writer Abigail R. Esman argues that during huge degree, it's really jihad which has emerged effective over democracy, not just a result of activities of Muslim terrorists, yet as a result of our personal reaction to extremist Islam within the West.
