Sebastian Gorka's PhD Dissertation

I actually read a while back his PhD dissertation.  My impression is summed up with what Hanna Batatu said about Fouad Ajami's Arab Predicament: not one original insight in the whole work.

PS Although I remember that Gorka was trying to make it clear in the dissertation that what he is saying does not apply to all Muslims, if I remember correctly.  But then again: there are those who say that and then add: this applies to "only" 20 % of all Muslims who are fanatic, which means we are talking about some mere 400 million Muslims.
