CSM had a story yesterday on the Kuwait case. I'm wondering how much of this is Salafi skill at organization and working systems, as opposed to actually winning a public debate for popular affection.


"written by a Yemeni author I don't know, Ahmed Mohammed al-Doghshi"

My super-sleuthing (ok, ok, google search, then to islamtoday.net) shows that he's an associate professor and a dean at the school of education at the University of Sana'a. He's 42 and earned his Phd at the University of Khartoum. His disseration involved the epistemology of the Quran.

He researches Islamists (among many other things!) and has discoursed previously on the Salafi movement in Yemen, plus various issues concerning Mahdism.

He's a highly prolific writer and much of it (well I find it to be so) is quite interesting. You can read more by searching islamtoday.net
