Research rept. Aug 93-Apr 94,
NATIONAL DEFENSE UNIV WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
Khomeinis revolution, terrorism, and oil have all caused the West to look with concern to the East. Academics have fueled this concern with numerous articles describing the problem as an Islamic threat or a clash of civilizations. The author provides a review of Islam and Muslim revivals, and asserts that Islam is not the next threat to replace the Soviet Red Menace. He suggests that Western policy makers should only view the Eastern concern for Western secularism as a warning to the West to return to its heritage. America will survive the Muslim onslaught much as it has assimilated other cultures over the past two hundred years.
