The season of jihad

“The worldwide Islamic jihad has begun. The riots in France are not isolated incidents of ‘disenfranchised Muslim youths’…. Whether it will acknowledge it or not, Europe is now at war with Islam. It is already patently evident that Islam is at war with Europe. President Bush and his supporters saw this early on…. Many believe that this is the beginning of the final war on the planet. If so, it is one that free societies must win over suppressive and despotic barbarism. The alternative is truly and unequivocally the end of civilization.”
