in response to reader comment: east is east

i think it would be apt to use the word muslims. Probably 'east' would be more represenatative of Japan, Korea, China, Thailand, non-muslim segment of Indonesia/Malaysia and probably India. Muslims in all of these countries are more or less aligned to Arab thought-process apart from religious affiliation. The 'east' that I am trying to refer is also diff from west, but it does find common ground with 'west' on a lot of things. Islam is a religion/culture whose homogeneity is not really trespassed by its follower whether he/she is in Indonesia or India or England or US. Muslims, I would like to say again they are mid-east, and not east.

"..Through a matrix of political-religious-culture-economic, the Muslim/Islamic aggression has seen real results..."

These are results achieved because of spinelessness that is shown by the rest of the world while dealing with them. Muslims on their own have not achieved anything significant. Though their powerful ally, the liberal left of the world has helped them achieve a lot in their aggression. By sympathesing with them this group is just encouraging the negative elements of Islam, which will make the rest of the world regret later.
