RADICAL ISLAM'S ALLIES: TOLERANCE AND LIBERALISM

The Western front is the important one in this war — the intersection between Islam and a liberal democratic tradition so mired in self-loathing it would rather destroy our civilization just to demonstrate its multicultural bona fides.

But our enemies know us very well, at least in courtroom strategies and canny manipulation of the "tolerance" fetish.

It's an open question if the West will survive this twilight struggle: Europe almost certainly will not; America might. On the other hand, the psychosis to which much of the culture is in thrall may eventually reach a tipping point into mass civilizational suicide.
