Islam and the West: An Irreconcilable Conflict?

Via III Percent Patriots

“I worry greatly that the rhetoric coming from the Republicans, particularly Donald Trump, is sending a message to Muslims here … and … around the world, that there is a ‘clash of civilizations.'”

So said Hillary Clinton in Saturday night’s New Hampshire debate.

Yet, that phrase was not popularized by Donald Trump, but by Harvard’s famed Samuel Huntington. His “The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order” has been described by Zbigniew Brzezinski as providing “quintessential insights necessary for a broad understanding of world affairs in our time.”

That Clinton is unaware of the thesis, or dismisses it, does not speak well of the depth of her understanding of our world.

Another attack on Trump, more veiled, came Monday in an “open letter” in The Washington Post where four dozen religious leaders, led by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, charge “some politicians, candidates and commentators” with failing to follow Thomas Jefferson’s dictum:

“I never will, by any word or act … admit a right of inquiry into the religious opinions of others.”

Intending no disrespect to Jefferson, if you do not inquire “into the religious opinions of others” in this world, it can get you killed.


  1. Hi Brock,
    'just reading the up front print and not going to the "main article"......the last sentence "up front" is so poignant..."Intending no disrespect to Jefferson, if you do not inquire 'into the religious opinions of others' in this world, it can get you killed!!!"
    Like dude, "Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot" does anyone have to say these dayz????
    Go grab a Bourbon an' Branch, I gotta' tell ya' a short story, "it relates!"
    In navy BootCamp '67 we were down at "Quarters for Muster" and Terry Roussell from LaPlace, La. (not far from where I am from) was our Barracks Fire watch and some First Class came up and started giving everyone in the Barracks "Shit"!! Terry is walkin' his post and the First Class says to him,"What are you doin'??" Said Terry,"Observin' everything within Sight and Hearing.....SIR!!" (Note; Our 11 GENERAL ORDERS!!") Why we must always be "Vigilant!!"
    Up until about 6 months ago, I never "Open or Concealed 'Carried'"...I do now!!!
    Got Gunz....OUTLAW!!!!!,

  2. Rejoice in the Lord. However, this islam issue will just grow larger and larger and become ever so close to home.

    1. Yes indeed and thanks.

  3. Jefferson aside, hilary et al. not only need to REALLY read about and understand islam, they need to read or re-read their Kipling. All those years ago he had it right and it still applies today and you can trace that all the way back to the Greco /Persian wars starting in 492 BC.

    "East is east, and west is west, and never the twain shall meet".

    He was not talking about a physical meeting, we have done that on the battlefield and other places. He was talking about a meeting of the minds, of ideology, and THAT will never happen peacefully if one truly understands the tenets of the 'religion of peace'. 1400 years of muslims behaving badly on an almost constant basis proves my point.

  4. Its simple to figure this one out. Rubio is a phony, never had a real job for any length of time but a few months, has got caught lying about his family history, and votes(when he shows up) as a neocon. If Dowdy is really going to support him, it tells me that he is bogus as well or stupid. you decide
