The dichotomy still exists

Reader comment on item: Faces of American Islam[: Muslim Immigrants]

You said, "the old dichotomy of Islam and the West exists no more. "

The term "west" refers to culture, not geography. Muslims living in Europe and America have no significant effect on the western cultures based primarily on Christianity and Judeo-Christian law. Your premise and the rest of the article based on it is flawed.

Sir, we are at war. Our enemy is Islam. They won't stop until western civilization is extinguished and Islam is the only religion on earth. And the battle fields stretch from New York to Israel to Jakarta.
