With the growing popularity of Muqtada Al'sadr and such, it's easy to buy into this post.... a nuclear deadlock? That's interesting..... we wouldn't want to provoke them, and they wouldn't want to provoke us, PLUS: they want to abolish the west and replace it with Islam. Right? But they would also have to be careful the ways they attacked, as you mentioned they are tech. inferior to the west. Launching large scale attacks would seem near impossible with the current air and artillery power today. True you show that 200 million stat, but really, human flesh can only push so far. But of course, can't ignore the intergrated militia cells in europe. Though I think they would be hard pressed to equip themselves well.... if much.
also, I'd believe this more if it mentioned the red star asians becoming involved, not necessarily on their side, nor ours. Much like the axis in WWII, merely allies for neutrality and to serve eachothers gains.
Very neat read, but it doesn't seem tragicly realistic. Though I do believe Islamic extremist are a threat. But covering a scale to put the WWII russian front to shame? I can't buy it, really....

The reason that makes Europe so important is the fact the Islamics don't really get along with non-muslims, but they see as their two biggest enemies are Jews and Christians. The West being symbolic of Christianity. Their hatred towards us goes all the way back to the crusades, which they still hold against us, go figure. Besides you have to get it out of your mind that they think like us, their system of logic is completely different than ours, this is one of the things the West doesn't grasp when sometimes trying to figure them out.
Like I said one of their prophecies is that the Mahdi will destroy Rome. Whether this is literal Rome, or symbolic of the West I'm not sure. I believe it is literal, I think they tend to see Vatican City ( which is located in Rome ) as the seat of all Christendom. The destruction of this would be to them a symbolic act of great significance. Either way, the first step in destroying the West is through Europe.
The second reason for invading Europe, I'm quite sure see it as place of fertile lands and immense riches, ripe for plunder. This is proven by the fact that so many Muslims are immigrating there. They probably also see most europeans made soft and weak by all that luxury. Not mention with Islams population explotion, who knows, it may be the need for farm land that will be one the excuses they use to invade, the desert isn't exactly the best land for farming.
Like I said before, whoever decides to lauch an invasion won't be stupid about it, or they will get crushed. If they are smart, they will do it on their terms, takings maximum advatage of their strenghts.
With a 20 to 1 or more advantadge you will be able to out attrition anybody.
But in order to even have a slim chance of succeeding in todays terms, you will have to put the WWII Russian front to shame.
How many divisions did the Russian have to take Germany? Around 100 to 150 maybe more in a 7 million man army, if I'm not mistaken. Well in todays terms in order for you to be able to take Europe with 150 divisions simply won't do. You might as well throw those men away, you have no chance of success. You will need a minimun 500 divisions, to have a so-so chance, 800 to 1000 to make sure. That's why I'm saying this will dwarf the Russian Front, in order for sucess the effort will have to be gigantic in a scale never seen before.
Mod Edit: Do not make back to back posts.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
This thread is pretty disturbing! I've done a couple of tours in the middle east, now, and to my mind, the'enemy' have not been Islamic terrorists, but terrorists who happen to be Islamic. Do you get the subtle difference?
Clearly, there is a lot of talk from various Imams, and other religious types, trying to get support for what is essentially a terrorist campaign with political ends, and using the Jihad card is bound to get a bit more support from the locals than the political card, but I do not believe for one second that this is all part of a fundamental Islamic plot - this smacks of 1930's Nazi propoganda about the Jewish plot to take over the World.
Hope I've not caused offence, chaps, and sorry if you feel that I'm being niaive - just my opinion.

I disagree with why this would take place In Europe. The secularization of Europe proves that It is no longer a "Christian Enemy", and now with Israel being home to many Jews, It no longer symbolizes Judaism. No, I believe Europe, If the prophesy has any truth, would be the goal because It symbolizes progressiveness to the point of sinfulness. Think about It, Humanism and Materialism both emerged from Europe, both of which are opposite to the beliefs of Islam.
Remember, the early Muslims has respect for both Christians and Jews, the hate we see In many of them today is just a phenomenon In their geopolitical situation.

The same principal goes for Israel, regardless of how todays Israelis see themselves, to the Muslims they are just still Jews. Like I said before our logic and their logic is not the same.
This is a quote I think from one of the Hadiths a compilation of the prophet Mohamed's sayings
"The last hour won't come before the Muslims would fight the Jews and the Muslims will kill them so Jews would hide behind rocks and trees. Then the rocks and trees would call: oh, Muslim, oh, servant of God! There is a Jew, behind me, come and kill him."
So much for their respect of Jews.
As far as the Nazi's go, you gotta think how many Germans were actually Nazi's, very few percentange wise, the rest of the normal folk jsut got swept up in the tide.
And as far as propaganda goes, they have one that rivals the output of Goebbels himself, you might have heard of it's called Al Jezeera. Every day their media fuels hatred against the Israel and the West. It's sure not helping to make things any better.
I'm not saying this stuff because I wan't to happen, on the contrary I don't. But I'm afraid the writting is on the wall. If we ignore this like France ignored Germany in the 30's then for sure there will be nothing we can do to stop it once it catches steam.
I actually believe most Muslims are decent people. However when the ball gets rolling, just like those Germans who where swept up by the Nazi tide, so will they get swept up.

If someone can motivate a united Muslim Empire, I have no doubt they'd be very dangerous. Before they could be fully effective, they'd have to drag the Muslim nations of the world into the 21st century economically and technologically. That part would require a lot of work.

Long time ago they made a deal with the radical Islamist to leave them alone and not target them. In exchange for some support to spread radical Islam one of which was to set up shcools called Madrassas. These shcools teach no skills, except for radical Islam and all that goes with it. There are thousands and thousands of these schools a in that region. You could almost compare it to something like the Hitler youth.
As for Turkey its a toss-up. The population is Muslim, however the top echelons of the military are staunch secularist called Kemalist, I believe they are pro-western. You cannot do anything major in Turkey without thier approval. I actually think this is good, without them you probably would have another Iran instead of a country that's freindly to the West, and tries to be progresive.
So it's a toss-up but if they do decide to oppose the Mahdi, theres just tooo many Muslims in their country, not to mention the lower ranks of the military for them to win.
I don't think they will be using obsolete weapons systems, they will try as much as possible to go up to standard. They may come close to this, but I don't believe they will ever match it. However what they don't match they will be able to more than make up for ----with manpower. like I already pointed out similar to the way the Russians used this advantange againsthe Germans
