    Fascinating article from Hoover Institute:

    It's Islam and it doesn't necessarily have to do with the West, now or in the past:

    Its not just now imploding.

    There has never been a time in history when that area was stable and peaceful for any appreciable period of time.

    I'm not sure that Islam is understood even by many of those who adhere to its tenets.
