..fellow, I suggest you TO enlighten yourself a little bit on the issue of the clash of civilizations. Here are two books for you:

1- The Clash of Civilizations, By: Samuel Huntington
comment: preaching a clash between civilizations and theorizing for war. Academically defective as the author established for every civilization block a core state, and failed to find a core state for the the Islamicate block as well as many problems classifying the latin American block and allocating a core state for it.

2- The Discourse Among Civilizations, By: Muhamad Khatami (former Iranian reformist president)
comments: it is alleged that Samuel stole the idea of Khatami and based on its contrary to oppose the Iranian encouragement of the discourse among civilization. The Clash theory is alleged to have established a gownd to contain the revolution of Iran which is feared to have quickly spread among other Islamicate nations. Khatami preaches mutual respect and the acceptance of the other while cohabitating in the same world.
