No War of Civilizations

The war that is coming – and it will be a war, violent and bloody and deadly – will be like no previous one. Though no one can yet guess its form, one thing should be remembered: this is not a war against Islam, nor is it a war against the Arab world. It will, however, be a war against Muslim fundamentalists who happen to be Arabs – if the current indications and emerging evidence about the perpetrators of the terrorist acts in New York and Washington are correct.
