Personally, I don't believe you can defeat radical Islam with in a society, any society, with out strict adherence to the principles of democracy. For too many years now, those countries with a long standing government based on democracy, have been weakened by the coruption of the lobbiest for special interest.

Chiefly among those who have struck against democracy have been big business. Social rights leaders have seen the benefit of using lobbies, social unrest, and yes fear. The use of fear is not solely the weapon of choice for "Islamofascist". Unions use it all the time. Police use it when they work to rule. (We wont be safe on the streets). Doctors and Nurses and Ambulance drivers use it when they go on strike.(What about if something happens to me. I can't leave the house, drive my car. What if I have a heart attack).

Fear is not a modern nor contemporary tool. What is new, is our relaxing of the law piecemeal to accommodate the new user of the tactic of threat. We compromise. We create a new sense of justice by taking a little from one and giving to the other. We have done this so often and in so many circumstances that we have watered down the truth and justice and charactor of democracy.

I believe we will be continually "at war" or "in a state of war" until those of us in democratic countries vote for the return of honest democratic rule and laws of equality applicable to all races, religions, creeds, sex, or peoples with in our borders, regardless of national origin.
Rule one: Separation between State and Religion. There are no amendments.
Rule two: All people are equal under the law. There are no amendments.
Rule three:..... There are no amendments.

Well, you get my point. Clean, clear cut rulings that apply to everyone, and no one, or no entity, is more equal or deserving of special consideration under law. If a corporation or company says it can't prosper, or a religion says it can't flourish, or a people say their inhibited by a system under pure law, then these people need to look elsewhere and should be urged to emigrate to the land of their utopia. There should be no law that compels one to remain with in a true democratic nation. There should be laws that quarantee the purity of truth and justice in democracy.

Until then.... see you on the battlefield. Which is going to be the street you live on sooner or later (see France and their neighbourhoods of Islamist no go zones. See Britain and her neighbourhoods of Islamist no go zones).
Yes countries are being destroyed but democracy is the target. Purify democracy and the countries will spring back better than ever.
