Victor Davis Hanson tells it like it is.
On the Arab "street" if any theory you espouse of the world does not include a "conspiracy theory" people will dismiss you out of hand. The great Middle East scholar Bernard Lewis said in his book What Went Wrong in assessing the current state of the Arab world relative to their glorious past centuries ago, the Arab "street" asks in anger, "who did this to us?" Their answer is Western Civilization did. That is why it must be destroyed. And if you don't think this is a war of civilizations that we are currently fighting and will for generations to come, then you need to take more history classes.
