HINDU DHARMA AND THE CLASH OF CULTURES
Hence the West, which is the dominant culture today, sees itself as the main force in this clash of cultures and is looking to counter any group that could possibly rival it. The clash of cultures idea is a way of defining its new enemies and seeing how to deal with them.

 Through the impact the global media and the world market  Western civilization is spreading everywhere, not so much as a military force but as an intellectual, economic and cultural power, which  can still radically challenge and displace existing cultures and ways of life. The clash of culture idea arises in the expansion to meet any force that can challenge or oppose this spread of Western civilization.

The initial great fear is of a battle between the West and the Islamic world, between Western secularism and Islamic fundamentalism. Islam has replaced Communism as the world enemy in the eyes of many people. Certainly all over the world, the main battles and terrorist activities, regardless of which side the media sympathizes with, concern Islam - whether in Israel, Bosnia, Chechnya, Algeria, Sudan, Afghanistan, or Kashmir. Islamic terrorist and insurgency groups are active in moderate Islamic countries like Egypt or in countries where Muslims constitute a sizeable minority, like India or the Philippines. The so-called terrorist countries of the world according to the United States State Department - Libya, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Sudan - are all not surprisingly Islamic countries. World terrorist activity primarily involves Islamic groups challenging Western supremacy.
