Indeed, the West & America did not learn from the history of Islam. History repeats itself.
Probably you know this fact, but you did not learn from what happened in the Middle East or Turkey or what you call now the Islamic world.
The Moslems, when they invaded these countries, put 3 options in front of the conquered people. The first is to convert to Islam; the second if you do not like the first option, is to die. The third is to pay " gizia " money with humility.
If you pay, you still must be considered a pig or monkey in their eyes and they are your masters.
If you pay, they consider you not deserving to live any more and they might kill you.
At any time, without any alarm, any moderate Moslem could convert to a fanatic one.

It happened to one of my Moslem friends when I was in Egypt, he was moderate. I left Egypt, and after a few years I asked a friend about that man, he told me he grew his beard and joined the Moslem brothers. It was a shock.
So, these Moslems (at least the fanatics) have cruel hearts, inhumane spirit and they destroy innocent lives since a long time ago and you close your eyes as if it does not concern you.

The problem now is you look at what happened and what is happening from the Moslems around the world as if it will never happen here.
You forgot and you insist to forget that it will happen here too, because the history repeats itself and you do not learn.
