you bring to our attention the fact that by cowing/bowing to islamic demands is in fact accepting the Islamic concept of -INFIDELS SUBMITTING TO ISLAM, this is in effect called -dhimmitude-, or recognition of Islamic superiority, very very few westerners have any idea of this fact, WHEN IN TRUTH-ISLAM-=SUBMISSION IN THIS CASE, TO ALLAH, when westeners submit to ISLAMIC DEMANDS TO MUSLIMS WE ARE CONCEDING TO A GREATER AUTHORITY, THEM,this is the premise of what happened when jews lived among the muslims because they were prepared to pay the EXTRA TAXES TO ISLAMIC GOVTS, to hear muslim immans telling westerners that jews lived with muslims in peace as equals is total nonsense, and in fact its the ESSENCE OF DHIMMITUDE, or SUBMISSION TO ISLAM,and of course the concept of -ISLAM BEING THE RELIGION OF PEACE IS BASED ON THIS BEING A WORLD VIEW,

HENCE WE GET THE CONCEPT OF THE CALIPHATE, that westerners still would need to know -what is a caliphate- is a shocking indictment on national govts and education systems that try to educate school children with an idea of accepting a values free world, when ISLAM COULD NEVER CONTEMPLATE SUCH A WORLD,sadly I could go on and on about this, however ,thanks for bringing up the question of SUBMISSION TO ISLAM BY THE WESTERN WORLD, THIS IS THE AIM OF MUSLIM UPRISINGS AND RIOTING IN THE STREETS OF WESTERN NATIONS, remembering that all muslims read the koran that tells them-ALL MUSLIMS- that the infidel is worthy only of death, and we non-muslims are the infidels.not a lot of compromise in a-?-HOLY SCRIPT -such as that.
