Rage, Anarchy

"This late twentieth-century Islam appeared to raise political issues. But it had the flaw of its origins - the flaw that ran right through Islamic history: to the political issues it raised it offered no political or practical solution. It offered only the faith. It offered only the Prophet, who would settle everything - but who had ceased to exist. This political Islam was rage, anarchy." - from 'Among the Believers' by V. S. Naipaul [1981]
