The West is Ready to Take On Islam

(Middle East Times-Cyprus) Youssef M. Ibrahim - On average, 33 Iraqis die every day, executed by Iraqis and foreign jihadis and suicide bombers, not by U.S. or British soldiers. If this is jihad, someone got his religious education completely upside down.

The only accomplishment of jihadis is that now they have aroused the great "Western Tiger." In this new war, car bombs and suicide bombers here and there will be no match for the arsenal that those Westerners are putting together - an arsenal of laws, intelligence pooling, surveillance by satellites, armies of special forces, and, indeed, allies inside the Arab world who are tired of having their lives disrupted by demented so-called jihadis, those who know little about Islam and nothing about humanity. The writer is a former Middle East correspondent for the New York Times.
