Not quite for the last couple of centuries the fighting has been on low
intensity. It is now ramping up again. We will have to mobilise.

Mobilisation means big conscription armies. Warships sinking immigrant
boats in the Mediterranean. Major punishment for being an Imam in a
Western country.

"What is the world's most dangerous ideology? In the first part of the 20th
century, the answer was Fascism; first manifest in Italy in the 1920's, and
then in Nazi Germany and in Imperial Japan. It took a world war and 50
million dead to stamp it out. In the second half of the 20th century, the
answer was Communism. Between the Soviet Union, Mao's China and their client
states, at least 100 million people were killed in its wake. Today, the
answer is Islamism, a radical, and often violent, form of Islam."
