In a war of cultures, which one will survive?

In a war of cultures, which one will survive?

In view of current world conditions and recent events in places like Gaza, Nigeria, Sudan and Syria, I believe the following comments are as germane as they were when written and are food for thought.

Lt. Col. Thomas E. Lawrence, aka Lawrence of Arabia, was a very insightful practitioner and student of the art and science of guerrilla warfare. In 1920, he wrote the following: "An opinion can be argued with; a conviction is better shot. The logical end of a war of creeds is the final destruction of one ."

The world is now involved in a war of creeds, Western civilization and culture versus radical Islam. Which will be destroyed?
