The article deals with the political and cultural context of the Arab revolts and the representation of Muslim politics in the ‘west’. It evaluates the changes that the current events have already brought about and how Islam as politics and imaginary has entered a new phase and trajectory that is very different from Islamist concepts in the Qutbian tradition. What we are experiencing, it is argued, is the emergence of a ‘post-modern’ Islam that is diffuse, decentred and almost post-ideological in its political syntax.
