Interesting comments by this Egyptian-American evangelical Anglican minister in Atlanta.
Yes, good article, although he echos Steyn's latest book so closely, I wonder if he isn't unconsciously borrowing from it. For instance:
As they say in the Middle East, "The cow is down and what is needed are more butchers with sharp knives."
Only in Steyn it's not a cow, it's a camel.

There is one dim hope, however.
As John Dryden said..."Beware the fury of a patient man."
IMO, the West is just waking up. When it is fully aroused, it will be really p!ssed off...and islam will regret ever opening it toothless mouth.

So, when do you think the outcry for reparations for the Crusades will begin?

They will have their way for a while in ME, North Africa and Europe, but it will not last long. They will burn themselves out trying to defend our counter-attack to reclaim those regions lost.

Islam is not really the primary problem. The problem is the rapid moral decay of the West.

Al of these doomsdayers forget that the West has the nuclear option.
No matter how quickly these primitives develop a nuclear weapon of their own, the minute they deliver one to a Western city and turn it into a radioactive crater, they will be annihilated, probably starting at places like Damascus, Tehran, Mecca, and Medina.
They are counting on their "12th Imam" to protect them from the fury that is bound to follow such an attack, but, alas, the "12th Imam" is only a myth perpetrated by the Devil.

To most of these people, the Crusades were not just events in history that took place nearly eight or nine hundred years ago; instead, the Crusades signify a perpetual desire on the part of the Christian West to dominate them and prove their religion inferior.
Odd perception it is. The last thing I or any other Christian wants is to dominate Islam. And I, or anyone else I know go around trying to prove Islam is inferior. Islam just is. Whatever floats your boat.
Hopefully everyone figures this out, and we can peacefully coexist. Otherwise, we may have to utterly destroy their society on a global scale. Carthage like in the results.

With the unfortunate possibility of another 9/11 size attack on the CONUS, maybe we'll be justified in a Milosevic style ethnic cleansing....

Did Muslims strap the pill, abortion and gay marriage suicide belt around the West?

"To most of these people, the Crusades were not just events in history that took place nearly eight or nine hundred years ago; instead, the Crusades signify a perpetual desire on the part of the Christian West to dominate them and prove their religion inferior."
That would be a revisionist accounting of what the Crusades were.
In reality however, the crusades were a defensive action, sent to RETAKE the holy lands, which were overrun by murderous Muhammadan hordes. Later they were defensive acts against murderous Muslim hordes which were trying to slaughter their way into Europe, which they nearly succeeded doing, slaughtering their way into then controlling most of Spain for a few hundred years.
Muslims were never innocent victims of anything in history. They were always murderous barbaric agressors.
When Muslims held Americans hostage in Tehran, Iran, for nearly a year and a half, and the most powerful nation in the world (the "Great Satan") acted impotently, there were a million hurrahs rising from Morocco to Indonesia.

It's time to recognize the elephant in the living room.
The Mohammedans can do this only because of the money they get from their oil. We must cut this off, root and branch, by any means necessary. We must either develop other sources and force the rest of the world to do likewise, destroy the Islamic oil industry in Saudi Arabia and Iran and take the economic consequences, or seize the fields and deny the proceeds to the natives.
