"This is war", declared the French President Francois Hollande yesterday, after the attacks on Paris in which over 120 people were killed and many more were wounded. The awareness that this is in fact a war, is a new one and a step forward. But how could the West make such a basic mistake?

Despite the fact that Obama had just declared that Islamic State has finally been contained (source), the terror group managed to kill 224 people in a Russian airliner over Sinai, 41 in the Beirut bombings, and well over 120  in Paris, and counting. It is clear that this war is far from over. It is actually only just beginning. But it won't happen until the West understands that, in order to win it,  it has to break the back of Islamo Fascism. It is therefore becoming more than urgent to set the record straight over a policy that has been failing us since the Iranian Revolution of 1979. The West, and primarily the US, must first make some very, very hard choices. We can either fight terrorism, or we can appease Muslim countries. We can't do both.
