“The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion […] but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.”
Samuel P. Huntington, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order

“Some Westerners […] have argued that the West does not have problems with Islam but only with violent Islamist extremists. Fourteen hundred years of history demonstrate otherwise.”
Samuel P. Huntington, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order

“Expectations should not always be taken as reality; because you never know when you will be disappointed.”
Samuel P. Huntington
