Qutb's precursor

Thomas Nephew has an excellent post on one of Qutb's influences, one Alexis Carrel, a French Phsyician Nobel Prize winner (medicine) and totalitarian fellow traveler. By the way, Mr. Nephew is too modest in his conclusion -- I think he offers an important contribution to understanding the intellectual roots of Islamist terror.
