Supporting Sufis as alternatives to Salafis has been a popular strategy but has generally not proved successful, as this paper shows. This lack of success, it will be argued, results partly from the organizational nature of Sufism, which makes it hard to mobilize Sufis in large numbers, and partly from the choice of Sufi orders that particular governments have made. Examples are taken from Morocco, the USA, the UK, and Egypt.
