Abstract
Most of American researchers are focusing their professional interest on one of the hottest issues today - how to separate Islam as religion with decades of centuries' background and basis for a featured civilization from its distortions used by extremists for their political and mercantile purposes. The implications of the Arab Spring, however, prompt them to explore the today's growing and widespread phenomenon in the Arab and Muslim world known as Islamism. Is this phenomenon to be regarded as historical imminence or as intentionally crafted political and religious tool in the hands of Radicals and Extremists? Most of the American scholars are tending to accept the earlier argument sharing the view that Islamism might be functional within the moderate expression, namely, to be constructive leverage contributing to the societal development as well as to fighting extremism.
