Whether we are aware of islam or not, whether we understand islam or not, whether we ‘engage’ islam or not, the outcome of the islam-West (islam-not islam) interaction will be conflict, murder and mayhem. The conflict is about whether there is liberty in the land or subjugation under islam (think about doing everything you do tomorrow in handcuffs and gagged). The murder will be of those who speak out to resist the islamization and to enlighten others about the threats (authors and commentators would be on someone’s list). The mayhem will ensue as both sides attempt to advance and/or defend their nations, their beliefs and their lives (you and I will shout for legislation, call for action and will take up arms if we feel unprotected, threatened and exposed).
This is no fad, this will not go away if unaddressed. Shielding ourselves, our families, our communities from these details will only accelerate the rate of advance and the time of reckoning. Fortify yourselves. Arm yourself with knowledge. Assess your values. Steel your heart and embrace your liberty.

The American melting pot concept allows for all to come and generation after generation a winnowing out of less beneficial ideas and practices and a strengthening of those ideas that are beneficial to the nation, to the human spirit. Overall the society grows and shapes and is shaped by its people.
This works well only where liberty is honored. Liberty and justice for all are America’s foundation. The ‘melting pot’ works less well – or backwards – in totalitarian societies where generation after generation only the strong-arm tactics or the most supplicating and subservient practices endure. This is almost a definition of West and East psychology.
To reach for the lowest common denominator among the earth’s cultures takes us to a dark and undesirable place. Hell on earth you might say.
Today we see a totalitarian ideology come to tolerant and free societies. So, do we free men enter bondage, voluntary slavery to allah and to sharia or enter the involuntary slavery of dhimmitude or do slaves of allah abandon their chains? As we see over and over again, integration, mutual respect and peaceful coexistence has not worked when one side swears fidelity to islam.
