Seems to me that "Islam" and "civilization" are two words/terms that are mutually exclusive.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.

That is an oxymoron if I ever heard one!
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

[[ Strategist Ralph Peters: Islamic World a 'Failed Civilization' ]]

For a "failed civilization", they seem to have been on the winning side for the past dozen years.

I'm not a betting man (at age 64, I've never bought a single lottery ticket for my personal use). But if I was, and if I had to place my bets based on my observations of the world as it is today, I would think twice before bettin' on The West...

Your skepticism is quite understandable. With the current crop of Quislings that we have in positions of power, you are justified.

They aren't.  Muslims had in the past one of the better civilizations around at the time.  Civilizations come, civilizations go; just as the West is now collapsing, more or less as Oswald Spengler thought it would.
