Unfortunately, 'Westerners'

are too brainwashed to understand
that what 'Islamists' object to
is less our sham democracy
and aggressively-consumerist 'way-of-life'
and more our multi-level
hypocrisy, which universal curse
of civilisation they want to replace
with their own - apparently even worse.

I am with you. Except APPARENTLY. It is.

Auban--you'll make a comment like this, but say nothing of Donald Trump, and you, the translator and lover of Arabic poetry. Anyway, as someone who was a public school principal in one of the two largest Muslim communities in the Los Angeles' basin, I can say many positive things about the overwhelming majority of Muslims. I can also say many negative things I don't like, e.g. the oppressiveness of their attitudes toward women (not an attitude shared by The Prophet). Spengler in his fascinating DECLINE OF THE WEST predicted the fedayeen overtaking us soon. Having lived and worked with the culture for five years, I am not that pessimistic either vis-a-vis your comment or Spengler's forecast.

Moreover...the Taliban are getting "softer" by the month, and with indirect funding from the US and UN (via the Kabul government) are improving services everywhere they are in control, i.e. half of Afghanistan. However, they are not offering education to girls, but that which they are offering to boys is not hard-line "Islamist", but a "normal" (i.e. irrelevant-to-life) curriculum.
