I do not believe that it is important to know whethet EU or US arrests more jihadists.It would be much more important to define the nature of the war between the West and Islamism.

Our citizens should understand what is at stake and why we need to fight islamofascism. We need to understand all historical basis for this collosal confrontation and understand how the Western leadership plans to win the war.It seems clear that rhe West has a chance to succeed only if it is united and coordinates its diplom,atic, military and legal steps.

As long as we do not recognize this war as a war of ideologies mixed with religion we will be fruitlessly calling it the war on terror that explains nothing at all.
