My problem with conspiracy theories is not so much identification of the fact that people attempt to conspire in order to produce a desire outcome (you would have to be incredibly naive to think governments and its agencies have not, and do not, ‘conspire’).

My frustration with this approach is that it often ends up replacing political, cultural, historical or social analysis.

    AA- Thabet,

    Excellent point! I too get frustrated with the laziness exhibited by so many otherwise intelligent Muslims.

    The real analysis is how can we get people to stop such victim-based thinking. Suggestions anyone?
