The greatest threat facing the civilized world today is its own ignorance about Islam.
Unfortunately for Muslims, and considerably more so for the rest of the world, Islam is extremely strict and uncompromising, as to the loyalty and dedication of its members. Any revelation of Allah (through the prophet Muhammad) must be taken as a holy mandate, and can only be amended, or superseded, by another revelation. This has seldom occurred. All verses of the Koran and the Haddith urging death or subjugation of infidels are still in place. Since secular jurisprudence is practically nonexistent in the Muslim world, the inflexible code of the Shari'a rules.
From the 7th century, and to the present, the openly stated goal of Islam is to bring the entire world into Dar Al-Islam, or the "peace" of Islam. This is a clearly defined condition under which no other system is tolerated. For Islam, any society not willing to subjugate itself, to complete Islamic authority has automatically placed itself in a state of war, or Dar Al-Harb, with Islam. Absolutely no other provocation is necessary!
This is a unique concept, but for Muslims appears to be entirely logical. Their reasoning seems to be that since Allah (Muhammad) has given mankind the perfect recipe for living on earth, any society opposing His (Allah’s / Muhammad’s) holy mandates is undeserving of any consideration whatsoever. Therefore, those unenlightened souls have only themselves to blame for the consequences of not accepting Allah and Muhammad as His Last and Most Perfect Prophet. That the consequences for these “unenlightened” entail genocide, rape and slavery, as well as a host of other denigrating conditions is, in the eyes of Muslims, only their just desserts.
As used by Islam, an intermediate condition, between Peace and War, is Dar Al Sulh. Dar Al-Sulh exists while Islam is attempting to gain sufficient power before fully launching into Dar Al-Harb. Europe, though mostly in the state of Dar Al-Sulh, is entering more into Dar Al-Harb as Muslims gain more political and demographic power. The train bombings of Spain in the Spring of 2004 and those of the London transit system in the Summer of 2005 are good examples. As Muslims grow in power, such terrorist acts will become more common.
In the United States, since we have only an estimated 1.5 to 2.0 million Muslims (growth to 7 million in 2010), Dar Al-Sulh still predominates but the seeds of our society’s destruction are already well sown. Any Muslim, if called upon to commit a treasonous act by his imam, against his host country, is faced with the choice of being an apostate in the eyes of his religion, or a traitor to his adopted country. Faced with this choice, many will become traitors! Regardless of any affection a Muslim might feel towards the society of his adopted country, accepting the consequences of a charge of sedition or treason, in our world-wide politically correct society, would, for most Muslims, be considerably less consequential than betrayal of Islam.
When a Muslim betrays his host country, and is discovered, he or she can count on an excellent defense team, funded by any one of several Muslim-front organizations operating within the host country. And, more than likely, unless a considerable number of people die as a direct result of the Muslim’s traitorous act, he or she, if even convicted, would not receive a death sentence.
On the other hand, a Muslim refusing to betray a host country, would more than likely be branded an apostate, the unforgivable sin, and punishable by death! And, a Muslim cannot be expected to renounce his entire heritage, and therein, lies the danger that Muslims present to any host country. If a Muslim decides to cooperate with law enforcement, when asked to betray his host country, he or she faces certain loss of his religion, the possible loss of family and friends, and perhaps even the loss of his or her own life. But regardless of whether a Muslim takes a pro-active role in terrorist activities, it is naive to believe that Muslims terrorists would not be helped by their fellow believers.
Islam is what it is, and Muslims are what they are; no amount of wishful thinking will make it otherwise!

Concerning the Holy Land, the chairman of the Syrian Delegation at the Paris Peace Conference in February 1919 stated:

"There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent (valley of Jezreel, Galilea); not for thirty miles in either direction... One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings. For the sort of solitude to make one dreary, come to Galilee... Nazareth is forlorn... Jericho lies a mouldering ruin... Bethlehem and Bethany, in their poverty and humiliation... untenanted by any living creature... A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds... a silent, mournful expanse... a desolation... We never saw a human being on the whole route... Hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil had almost deserted the country... Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes... desolate and unlovely...".
- Mark Twain, "The Innocents Abroad", 1867 -
"In 1590 a 'simple English visitor' to Jerusalem wrote: 'Nothing there is to bescene but a little of the old walls, which is yet remayning and all the rest is grasse, mosse and weedes much like to a piece of rank or moist grounde'.".

"Palestine is a ruined and desolate land".
- Count Constantine François Volney, XVIII century French author and historian -
"The Arabs themselves cannot be considered but temporary residents. They pitched their tents in its grazing fields or built their places of refuge in its ruined cities. They created nothing in it. Since they were strangers to the land, they never became its masters. The desert wind that brought them hither could one day carry them away without their leaving behind them any sign of their passage through it".
- Comments by Christians concerning the Arabs in Palestine in the 1800s -
"Then we entered the hill district, and our path lay through the clattering bed of an ancient stream, whose brawling waters have rolled away into the past, along with the fierce and turbulent race who once inhabited these savage hills. There may have been cultivation here two thousand years ago. The mountains, or huge stony mounds environing this rough path, have level ridges all the way up to their summits; on these parallel ledges there is still some verdure and soil: when water flowed here, and the country was thronged with that extraordinary population, which, according to the Sacred Histories, was crowded into the region, these mountain steps may have been gardens and vineyards, such as we see now thriving along the hills of the Rhine. Now the district is quite deserted, and you ride among what seem to be so many petrified waterfalls. We saw no animals moving among the stony brakes; scarcely even a dozen little birds in the whole course of the ride".
- William Thackeray in "From Jaffa To Jerusalem", 1844 -
"The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is of a body of population".
- James Finn, British Consul in 1857 -
"The area was underpopulated and remained economically stagnant until the arrival of the first Zionist pioneers in the 1880's, who came to rebuild the Jewish land. The country had remained "The Holy Land" in the religious and historic consciousness of mankind, which associated it with the Bible and the history of the Jewish people. Jewish development of the country also attracted large numbers of other immigrants - both Jewish and Arab. The road leading from Gaza to the north was only a summer track suitable for transport by camels and carts... Houses were all of mud. No windows were anywhere to be seen... The plows used were of wood... The yields were very poor... The sanitary conditions in the village [Yabna] were horrible... Schools did not exist... The rate of infant mortality was very high... The western part, toward the sea, was almost a desert... The villages in this area were few and thinly populated. Many ruins of villages were scattered over the area, as owing to the prevalence of malaria, many villages were deserted by their inhabitants".
