That last bit is the thing that leaps out at me. This is a 4-way religious war. I used to say 3-way, but this time I'm giving the Jews their own side. All the talk about "cultural confidence" is really talk about evangelization. It's hard to evangelize when your religion calls for no evangelization like the secular Euros. It's primary tenet is multicultural acceptance. If you accept another's worldview as equal to your own, you're not likely to change their mind, particularly if their worldview says you're a big time wanker.
So, using a street racing analogy, here are the four sides.
|Islam is a Lamborghini. Fast, aggressive, great for picking up chicks and getting laid (without protection, of course). It oozes confidence. Everyone better get out of the way when this bad boy comes roaring up behind them. (Everyone does.)|
