History has shown that the only way the Islamic world sees improvement from our side is to appease them, like Jimmy Carter did. That worked out really well. I´m no history professor, but I can´t think of a time when the Islamic world got along with anyone other than other Islamic countries, and even that rarely.

Saudi exports its Wahabbism on us by the tons. Egypt appeasaes its Muslim Brotherhood and fosters hate for mus to keep themselves off the grill. Can you tell me what you think Obama can do so that the Islamic world and the West can live together peacefully? Throw Israel in the trash? No, our culture of porn and Godlessness and abortion and divorce and prostitution and women´s rights and the whole gammit al-Queda and the Wahabbis make their number one complaint about the West is still there and, in their minds, needs to be defeated for Allah. More and more young Muslims, out-producing us by about three to one in Western Europe and with an avergae age of 15 and going down by the year, while ours is over 30 and going up every year, across the globe see it their mission aslo, to take our sin from the world and impose Islamic values. I´m interested to know how you think we should deal with that without submitting to their wishes and totally transforming our way of life and our freedoms. If you have the answers, I´d like to hear them, honestly, but more importantly, pass them on to Western leaders.
