Islamic incompatibility

John S. Bolton offers a staggering (yet still non-exhaustive) list of the fundamental differences in the core principles of Western liberalism and Islam. In light of this, it is difficult to see how any genuine, self-described liberal could celebrate Islamic immigration into Europe and North America as a step toward greater social harmony through understanding.

Less bleakly, though, there is some understanding taking place, albeit not the variety of understanding the borderless leftists have putatively hoped for.

Thanks, and I want to keep adding to it, not so much by drawing smaller principles into larger ones, as by multiplying the smaller less-philosophical ones.
