Islam doesn't mean "peace." It means "submission." The Koran teaches/instructs its 1400-year-old strategy, an obligation for each Muslim to kill the kafir (non-believer), with a reward of paradise for the jihadi warriors. Islam long ago turned the East and Europe into its perpetual war zone; the Middle East was Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Zoroastrian and mor before it became Muslim by carnage. The "self-generated" violent Islaist extremists are taught intolerance and hate in their schools and mosques. They are bred en masse.
Our political correctness and inability to see what confronts us could be our downfall. We have seen Islam change countries in the Middle East, and see changes in Europe.
Eternal vigilance is the price of civilization and being pro-active may be the only way to save ours.
