May he live and govern long and "Make America Great Again".
And that is PRECISELY what it is — a clash of civilizations continuing for centuries more than a millennial.
It appears that Trump has read Samuel Huntington. It’s a pity that the reporters for this article haven’t.
Not as a clash of civilizations, but the defense of civilization.
Typical L A Times
Finally - someone in a position of power and authority has the guts to speak the truth!
“Islam is Islam. Democracy is the train we ride to victory”
— Recep Erdogan; President of Turkey
Democrats including Hillary Clinton want to invite Islam into the USA to destroy America because democrats hate America and democrats hate freedom
Trump talks about the evils of government bureaucracy and how individual freedom and western civilization must be defended from the evils of government bureaucracy and I interpret it as also against Islam
Yep. A Reagan Berlin Wall speech for the 21st century. Now let’s see if the Euros are interested in fighting for the values they claim to have. I’m not holding my breath on that one.
Yes, the west v islam.
I have been saying this for 16 YEARS.
Thank You, President Trump!
Kirk's words from that essay may be appropriate here on this day:
"The patrimony of a civilization can be lost at the very moment of that civilizations material triumph. In any culture worthy of the name, men must be something better than the flies of a summer; generation must link with generation. Some men among us are doing whatever is in their power to preserve and reinvigorate our common heritage. This is not a work that can be accomplished through positive law or the creation of international commissions. Yet if a people forget the ashes of their fathers and the temples of their gods, the consequences soon will be felt in the laws and in international affairs. Without cultural community between America and Europe, there is little point in political alliance."

Meanwhile effing open border Clooney hypocrite fleeing London in fear...
Islam has clearly been a religion of conquest and slavery, murder and mayhem, for 1395 years for anyone willing to read the history.
Saying it is a religion of peace is either completely ignorant or completely disingenuous.
Good post. The headline gets it wrong, the President got it right.
But it is a clash of religions; of their gods verses God. And the people of God.
3 generations of these 7th century animals must be eliminated to bring them to bay so that our heritage may prosper for the next 3 generations.
