The goal of Islam is the annihilation of Western civilization and its replacement by a worldwide caliphate with sharia- strict Isamic law - for all. The West, which speaks of respect for the individual, is engaged in a war with an ideology which denigrates the worth of that individual . The two are irreconcilable. Too many Americans do not understand this and will be shocked when the country is faced with violent Middle Eastern type violence on mainland of the U.S.A. That is not inconceivable considering the Obama Muslim outreach. His continuous apologies for the U.S.and lack of backbone in dealing with global terrorism is an invitation for disaster!
