HINDU DHARMA AND THE CLASH OF CULTURES
At the same time there is a counter trend in the West to tolerate or accommodate Islam, particularly when the oil market, which is still the life-blood of the world economy, lies in the hand of Islamic countries. The West therefore speaks of good, true, liberal or tolerant Islam versus false, militant or intolerant forms. The West is striving to avoid defining this confrontation as a simply Western-Islamic conflict, but to align itself with progressive elements in the Islamic world that are not hostile, at least in foreign policy, to the West. The most obvious example of this is Saudi Arabia, itself one of the most totalitarian in the world, being lumped along with modern Arab countries because of its pro-Western foreign policy. Yet the West remains uncertain whether the Islamic world will rise up as a whole and oppose the West, throwing off pro-Western Islamic rulers for more militant groups. In this regard most Muslims have a greater sympathy with Islamic militants than with the Western groups criticizing them.

China is another potential great threat to the West. China will soon be the largest world economy and already has the largest population. It has the largest army and a history of expansionism. It has little concern for human rights and does not hesitate to sell arms to any country it wishes. Yet the West meekly accepts whatever China does in fear of its growing power. So far the West has chosen to try to subvert the Chinese economically and has not opposed them as forcefully as it has the Islamic threat.
