“Some Westerners […] have argued that the West does not have problems with Islam but only with violent Islamist extremists. Fourteen hundred years of history demonstrate otherwise.”
―Samuel P. Huntington, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order
“In the emerging world of ethnic conflict and civilizational clash, Western belief in the universality of Western culture suffers three problems: it is false; it is immoral; and it is dangerous.”
“Islam's borders are bloody and so are its innards. The fundamental problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism. It is Islam, a different civilisation whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power.”
“Every civilization sees itself as the center of the world and writes its history as the central drama of human history.”
We westerners should do it and not offer any apologies for trying to do so.A National International is emerging that's against collectivist neo-liberal experiments like the EU and North American Union, and rejecting its mass-migration and cultural relativism. We believe there is something inherently unique and distinctive about our civilization, and certainly cultures, peoples and races are inherently incompatible with it. We shouldn't offer any apologies for desiring to preserve our cultures. The Chinese, Japanese and Koreans for all practical purposes embrace integral nationalism and don't offer any damned apologies for doing so. It's innate and natural.
The Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi put it aptly, post-9/11:
We must be aware of the superiority of our civilization, a system that has guaranteed well-being, respect for human rights and — in contrast with Islamic countries — respect for religious and political rights, a system that has as its value understanding of diversity and tolerance. . . The West will continue to conquer peoples, even if it means a confrontation with another civilization, Islam, firmly entrenched where it was 1,400 years ago.
