Graeme Wood (The Atlantic), in his new book on ISIS: "In my conversations with scholars of Islam, few of the people who dismissed the Islamic State as a product of false Islamism—Jacobinism with an Islamic veneer—were able to name a single cleric or scholar associated with the Islamic State, or a fatwa or other statement by that scholar. The level of ignorance is as appalling as if a scholar of Marxism declared the Soviet Union 'not Marxist' and turned out to be unfamiliar with the name of Trotsky or Lenin."
