That's an interesting way of putting it. Perhaps the poetic ring helps pass it off as history. Certainly Reagan and Bush have cradled that adolescent run-away America trying to come of age in their vague consciousness of evil.
Elsewhere, Arab Moslems have demanded the removal of certain "offensive" frescos in an Italian (i.e. Roman Catholic) Cathedral. In France, synagogues are set alight, and in Germany, Jews are beaten on the street -- all by persons of "southern" extraction.
And still our president calls Islam a religion of peace and invites the bloody mullahs to the White House to celebrate their heathen holy days. Let me re-phrase: on 9/11, America received its invitation to join the West. The invitation was respectfully declined: "prior commitment."
There are no errors in this statement. Berlusconi spoke the truth. Islamists should examine this statement closely and undertake some serious self-examination.

And this battle the Islamists won't win.

The deepest motivation of its believers comes less from faith, than from a contempt for all unbelievers that is deeply imbedded in Islam. Islam does not free the believer's soul; it enslaves it, because Islam literally means submission. For those eager for spiritual certainty, Islam provides it and this may account for its success.
This accounts for the vast silence of Islam following the vicious attack suffered by the United States on September 11, 2001. It is the silence of fear. It is the silence of guilt. It is the silence of resentment. It is the silence of hubris. All the major advances of mankind have come from the West. The daily news releases from the Council on American-Islamic Relations begin "In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful..." This is obscene. Their releases obsess about the treatment of a mere handful of Muslims suspected of participating in or planning more evil, many of them here illegally. ......"
