An interesting documentary comparing Neo-con movement (a sort of politico-christian movement) with the political-Islamist movement.

The most interesting parts are from part 3 onwards below. The rise of political Islamic thought and its suppression leading to the splinter movements to turn violent in Egypt and Algeria are similar in some ways to the events in Kashmir and in present day Pakistan.

Some lessons for people in the sub-continent as well.
