Perhaps deciding that the Arab Terrorist epithet has lost its sting from overuse, British journalist Reeve reverts to more atavistic name calling to denigrate Muslims resisting US hegemony.

He thinks they represent a new breed of terrorist that the west will soon be prostrate before. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
