The answer is not quite simple, how to defeat ... Islam. The west should understand that whatever they will do, Muslims will consider them as the enemy.

The Islam was always fanatic, violent and barbaric but do not have enough resources to realize the Islamic dream. Now, they have enough money, thanks to oil prices that started pumbing increadible wealth since 1973 till today into the Islamic countries.

I will tell you a story from our history, Islam is persecuting the christians/copts of Egypt since 1400 years ago and till today. Egypt was a 100 percent christian state when it was invaded by the barbaric muslim Arabs and since then, they have used every hard and soft method to transform this land into an Islamic state, They have burned the old library of Alexandria with all its treasures of books and knowledge, they had done a lot to destroy our pharaonic heritage and language. They requested us to pay extra taxes. They stopped recruting christians in an important post in the government.

I have to admit that they had succeeded to do that over 1400 years.

Now-a-days we became a persecuted minority in our own land, we can not express our faith or our beliefs. Our women are kidnapped and raped, our churches are attacked and nobody whatsoever was brought to justice till today.

I wish the free world will understand the message.

This is a religion that tolerates violence and killing of non-muslims. It is a religion that requests from its followers to kill to go to heaven (Jihad). The moderate muslims are even more dangereous. Can you imagine a moderate fascist or a moderate nazi. It is a religion that teaches its followers to be liars to reach the goals of Allah/God in Islam (Takia Principles).

This religion is against freethinking, against christians, jews, seculars, atheists, budhists....

You have to push your politicians not to cooperate with such fanatic regimes in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and others or organizations such as Muslim Brotherhood or Islamic Development Bank.

The free world should not tolerate what is happening in countries like Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia against the non-muslims. Democracy and education are keywords in changing this mentality.

You should change your immigration policies that acquire more muslims and leave persecuted minorities to their fate.

You should understand that the enemy is at home, every mosque is a hatred cell.

You should not allow terrorists to win or to think they have won a fight or war, either in the battle field or in the war of ideas. This gonna take years.

I hope our chidren will have a better and safer world to live in, a free world that they are not afraid from persecution because they are christians living in their homeland in Egypt.
