ABSTRACT
The author calls for the U.S. and Europe to discredit extremist ideology to stop the increasing number of terrorist recruits as of October 2005. He argues that the surge in Islamist terrorism will take years to defeat. The Iraqi insurgents can only be defeated by the Iraqi people not by U.S. troops alone. In Muslim countries such as Pakistan and Iraq, Muslims will be forced to confront the Islamists or witness their governments being overthrown and their people dragged back into a feudal past.
