21st Century Ghost Dancers

Jinnderella asks whether Islamists are modern-day Ghost Dancers. I asked that question too, back in May.

David, Humble apologies. If you look, I gave you a hattip. :)
But you missed the second part of my question! I want to know if the modern Ghost Dancers can succeed, given that they have easy access to the modern eqivalent of Wovoka's multiple locomotives loaded with weapons?

Thanks, I wasn't fishing (boasting, perhaps) and I don't know if I deserve it.

Your next post makes it seem like maybe we are the Ghost Dancers:

Now like Psyche, we move carefully and cautiously in the World. We look for charms and rituals to bring the happy times back, to armor us still in the certainty that we are the favoured of the gods and we can be what we were.
