#1 Westerners tend to lose sight* of the fact that Islam is the most militaristic and controlling of all the major religions. Unlike the other faiths, Islam established itself in war and initially spread largely by military conquest.
Never forget that fact. The last major attempt of conquest against Christian Europe was turned back at the gates of Vienna in 1683.
