BATTLE OF WILLS Islamism's political religion may be global in reach, but its core presents a domestic challenge to the integrity of the modern liberal state. [...] insurgency may be both global and local, but controlling it demands a state-based response that reasserts national security, and attends to core sovereignty concerns like securing state borders and sustaining an inclusive political identity.
