Islam was an imperialistic Jihadi religion from day one, since this is the way it was conceived. Islam never lost its imperialist and Caliphate ambitions, but for a period of five hundred years was unable to exercise them due to relative powerlessness. Where it could, it did, see India and Malaysia and Indonesia, but in the European arena, Islam was held back. As soon as Islam was empowered, by Oil, the old habits came back, with a vengeance. All those modern thinkers did not invent a thing. They simply revived Muhammad in all of his bloody glory."

Your analysis is absolutely correct. There is no moderate Islam or Muslim. Muslim terrorism will not end until this murderous ideology is crushed forever. Loss of oil revenues will certainly help hasten its demise but will not eliminate it altogether - for the Muslims have to obey their God's wishes to eliminate all non-Muslims from this world.
