Reader comment on item: Combating the Ideology of Radical Islam

Submitted by Stephan Dedalus (United States), Apr 13, 2003 at 00:18

Regarding the statement in a recent PolicyWatch:
>>The world is facing not a clash of civilizations, but rather a struggle between Muslim moderates and militants.

Eastern Orthodox in Bosnia, Catholics in the Phillipines, evangelical Christians on Salewi in Indonesia, Hindus in India, anamists and pagans in Nigeria have recently died, sometimes in great numbers, at the hands of Muslims. How is this not a clash of civilizations? Is it not denial to consider this only some internecine struggle?
