This originally appeared as a tweet session on 26/7/2012, with an emphasis on Syria. Thanks to Ahmad Gatnash who helped by archiving the tweets and converting them into an article. Some of the Syria-specific analysis may be dated, but I believe this is still a pretty good introduction to the Islamist spectrum.

Note:Â This was a follow-up to the first article on this topic, which generated more feedback than I could respond to. This was tweeted on September 22nd, and was compiled into text by Ahmad Gatnash, to whom I am grateful. Once again I did very little editing and only topical formatting, so excuse the mess.

Note: This was originally tweeted on Sep. 11, and was compiled into text by Ahmad Gatnash, to whom I am grateful. I did very little editing, and only minor formatting, so this is mostly as-compiled. The conversation is still going on so this may need to be edited or revised soon. Find part 2 of this discussion here.

Note: This initially appeared as a "tweet session" on August 30, as a follow-up to an even longer "tweet lecture" about the dynamics of Islamism in the post-Arab Spring world, especially Syria. It was compiled into article form by Anas Abumais and Don Caliente, independently. I'm grateful to both. I haven't gotten around to editing it, so I'm posting it as-is since you've been asking where to find it.
