These men are symptomatic of the significant danger that free societies, and the West in particular, face. Rather than accept the reality of the chaos that has been spawned by not only radical, but so called "moderate" Islam, they delude themselves into thinking that they are attempting to create a peaceful and progressive world.

They are willing to deny the reality of a Muslim woman being raped by several male Muslims in Pakistan because of a professed sin of her brother; the murder of one million Christians in Sudan by Muslims simply because they are Christians; the daily killings of Muslim Iraquis by Islamofascists; the murder of a Dutch journalist for criticizing Islam; and recently, the savage bombing of Egyptian Muslims at Sharm-el-Sheik.

None of the above actions have primarily involved Westerners. They are merely examples of what many Muslims have contributed to the world over the past several hundred years - violence and murder.

These two writers conveniently forget that it is not the West, but corrupt Islamic rulers that have created the massive unemployment and significant unrest that now are taking place in many Muslim countries. Was it the West that refused citizenship to and then expelled thousands of Palistinians from Kwait in 1991? No, it was the Kwaiti government. Was it the West that made slaves of Afghani women during the Taliban era? No it was a group of thirteenth century supremacists that would impose their order on anyone, regardless of religion or country, who would not agree with them

The ascendancy of the Islamists would not mean the rebirth of modern civilization, but it's death.
