Islam and the West at War - NYTimes.com

Congratulations to Roger Cohen for getting close to the truth in the article linked below.
I would like to have seen a bit more emphasis on the *ideology* of Islam in "the [rising] tide of retaliatory menace".
Still, a good summary of where we're at, and the delusion of leaders such as the Danish PM and Obama in refusing to identify Islam (or Islamism, if you must) as the prime force in global carnage.
"Islam is a religion that has spawned multifaceted political movements whose goal is power. Islam, as such, is fair game for commentators, caricaturists and cartoonists, whose inclination to mock the depredations of theocracy and political Islam's cynical uses of the Prophet cannot be cowed by fear."
