The war between cultures
: I keep coming back to the thought that the war between cultures — between Islam and the West — will come first to Europe instead of America. See the fight over Muslim women’s head scarves in France. See the murder of Theo Van Gogh after he made a film about the oppression of Muslim women in Europe. And see this week’s Spiegel cover: “Allah’s daughters without rights.” The experience of Muslims in Europe is different and in greater contrast than here and that will cause greater conflict.
