1. The U.S. does not, and should not, defend the religious freedoms of other countries as a matter of our national securtiy.
2. If Islam is "awakening with new vigor" good for Islam.
3. The author of the opinion cites population growth in Islamic countries as an example of the strength of Islam. Population growth or non-growth is not tied to religion. Population growth is tied to economics and literacy among other things. I do not believe there is a conspiracy by Muslims to take over the world by over population.
4. By calling this a religious
war the author is effectively calling all Muslims terrorists
and saying that the U.S. knowingly engaged in Jihad with Iraq.
