there is a big difference between west and islamists. Let us not argue - i accept that islam finds west to be decadent, hypocritical and all that. West would do well to equally accept that to accept Islam in the west it a sure long term suicide. Let us not argue with each other - but find ways in which west and islam will simply not interact with each other. United Nations needs to split between Islamic countries and non-islamic countries. ALl countries woudl be free to choose if they wish to belong to one camp or the other (or neither.)

First need for west is to accept that west is simply loathed to its very core by islamists and their only goal is to impose islamic 'values' on the rest of the world. To believe this is a right of islamists, west just needs to accept this is how it is and act accordingly in diplomatic, economic and miliatry preparedness.
