Clash of Civilizations

The Clash of Civilizations?

As Iraq and Syria succumb to the forces of ISIS, are we witnessing what Samuel Huntington called the Clash of Civilizations. Huntington argued in the 1990s that, with the Cold War and its clash of ideologies (i.e. human rights, capitalism versus totalitarianism) coming to a close, conflicts in the future will be based on cultural and religious issues. Looks like he was right.

ISIS certainly believes they are engaged in a clash of civilizations. Perhaps we should start taking them at their word?

The anger and hatred Muslim radical groups like Hamas, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah and now ISIS spew is not directed exclusively at Jews and Israel, Americans and the US, but is directed at our entire civilization. We are seeing it in action with the genocide of Christians in the Middle East. But make no mistake Lefties, they will surely do the same to you if they catch you.
