"Radical Islam's best chance to defeat us lies not in bombings and beheadings but in classrooms, law courts, computer games, television studios, and electoral campaigns."

Dr. Pipes , this was your above statement in the above article . My question to you is do you mean Islam has got a better case against Western Civilization if Islam follows a moral,spiritual and non-violent path ?

One interesting comparison could be met between early Western Civilization(pagan roman) and early Christianity. The Christians were militarily weak but they were able to convert the powerful Western Civilization through their ideas. Do you see a similar trend with Islam , also ?

I don't mean a "better case" but a more effective tactic.
