    Howdy zmogus; The clash of civilizations is already a reality and has been going for some time now. The clash really started in the mid-20th Century when Western influences started to creep into the pristine Islamic world. This caused the rise of Islamic fundamentalism which naturally saw ideas like democracy, equal rights for women, the separation of church and state, religious tolerance, etc. as being diametrically opposed to the teachings of Islam and, therefore, as a serious threat. It would have been one thing if the Islamic world had been content to counter ideas with ideas, but the more radical Muslims turned to violence. Exremist Mullahs have declared Jihad against the infidel, issue Fatwahs calling for the deaths of people who oppose them, and their sermons are full of hate speech every friday. Furthermore, they have armies of terrorist fanatics who would like nothing better than to martyr themselves provided that they can take a few infidels with them. The clash is here
