Two Opposing Views of the Islamist Threat

Two Opposing Views of the Islamist Threat, by Daniel Pipes. Recently some PC worthy in Germany suggested that all school children learn Arabic until 12 or 13 years of age. A straw poll found 94 percent of respondents answered negatively. (6% were prepared to learn Arabic just to make migrants feel at home? Virtue signalling gone mad.)

[There is a] divergence between two fundamentally different ways of seeing the West’s evolution vis-à-vis Islamism: one focuses on the statements and actions of a diminishing elite appeasement faction; the other follows the increasingly strong negative response by the population at large.

Yes, Islamism is making advances. But anti-Islamism is growing more rapidly and so, I predict the latter will prevail.
