Further, Islamists (a term which I'd not even heard until after 9/11, and I was born and raised a muslim, even if I don't practice anymore) as you seem to define them hardly represents mainstream Islam

i'm pretty sure the term wasn't invented till after 9-11 .... intent was to better distinguish 'bad' (fundamentalist, suicide-bomber, america-hating) Muslims from 'good' (more moderate, more Modern) Muslims....

then the distinction seems to have gotten lost.

......descendant of polygamists ... so i don't see it as the HORROR others do
