Stirring the pot

Reader comment on item: Rampaging Islamists

Maybe there is a positive side to what is happening. Maybe actions that cause the Muslims to riot worldwide will alert the other four fifths of the world population that there is a challenge for dominance of the world. Maybe it is not too late to turn this around. On the other hand, maybe it is too late. Maybe they have achieved the critical mass necessary to prevail. In either case, I think bringing this conflict to a head is a good thing. Re your reference to the clash of civilizations, the separate enclaves are a fact, both physically and culturally. The clashes occur because of that separateness.
