"Only in the sense that the consequence of those ideas was formation of a tangible military machine that could not be overcome."

Then where is Islam's the tangible military machine?

"So the new militancy if the fault of a guy that died before the turn of the last century?"

Christ died at the cross two eons ago, Christianity continues to grow.

"Funding."

Amazing, the leading scholars throughout the world missed that...

There is very little funding required to spread extremism, if funding was a requirement, the Bolsheviks would have never dethroned the Czar.

Bolsheviks did not dethrone the Tsar. He abdicated in favor of pro-Western pro-democratic government long before Bolshevik coup. His abdication enabled Germans to fund Communist takeover. It is true that Bolshevik murdered God-fearing Tsar, his wife and children but it is another story.

What does that have to do with how we won the cold war?

Christ died at the cross two eons ago, Christianity continues to grow.

After an inital hundred year phase of zero growth?

No, not when you commandeer the resources you need to be effective. When you can't steal them, you have to buy them.
