#1 They are completely naïve about the nature of that which they worship and that which they debate.

A lot of dancing around the key issues of what exactly is Islam? And why is there a direct connection between disintegrating third-world societies and Islam?

Of course they avoided the fact that Malaysia has put a lid on religious discourse and tightly controls what their imams well as who those imams are.

#2 Were not the Ottoman Turks Sufis? I'm confused.
Join the crowd. The history of Islam and Sufism are confusing in the extreme. Some Ottoman Turks were Sufis, some weren't. There were both Sunni and Shiite Sufis. The repression of non-legalistic practices of Islam varies from one ruler to the next over the years.
The famous Sufi martyr Mansur al-Hallaj was executed for saying "I am the Truth" during a period of religious ecstasy. He had said this before, had been charged in court before, but until the very end, the judges let him off on that technicality. His last court case ended badly.

#3 I was at the local library this afternoon, and heard a very one-sided shouting match between the security officer and an obstreperous would-be library patron. The loudmouth was shouting "I ain't said nuthin'" and similar incongruities. Eventually it stopped. When I left I asked the lady at the desk what happened, and she said, "We had someone here who couldn't control his speech." Very diplomatic of her.
