The Veneer Of Civilization

Historian Will Durant wrote in his book The Story of Civilization:

"The Mohammadan conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. It is a discouraging tale, for its evident moral is that civilization is a precarious thing, whose delicate complex of order and liberty, culture and peace may at any time be overthrown by barbarians invading from without or multiplying within."
You have to wonder what Islam has in store for the rest of us.

The above quote and its preface shamelessly cribbed from: Trembling Fingers
