Perhaps the answer is found in Thomas Babington Macaulay: “And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his gods?”Tribe and faith. Those are the causes for which Middle Eastern men will fight. Sunni and Shiite fundamentalists will die for the faith. Persians and Arabs will fight to defend their lands, as will Kurds and Turks.But who among the tribes of the Middle East will fight and die for the secular American values of democracy, diversity, pluralism, sexual freedom and marriage equality?
Who will fight and die, literally, for abortion on demand, militant atheism, multiculturalism, free Obama phones, gay marriage, the "hook up" culture and pornography on the wide screen? All these "freedoms" will be washed away by true believers who are willing to die for their beliefs and view these things that the secular West values as abominations.
