The West's Last Chance: Will We Win the Clash of Civilizations?

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Author and pundit Tony Blankley argues that the West is down to its last chance. The Nazis failed to take over Europe, but militant Islam might. Within our lifetimes, Europe could become Eurabia: a continent overwhelmed by militant Islam that poses a greater threat to the United States than even Nazi Germany did. In The West's Last Chance, Blankley posits how it could happen - and what we must do to prevent it.

What really happens if Islamist terrorists acquire weapons of mass destruction? How far along is Europe toward being a launching pad for Islamist terrorism? What upheavals are potentially in store as Europe's birthrates plummet? Could a similar fate face the United States? What's holding our government back from fighting the Islamist threat to the best of its ability? Blankley addresses these and other hard questions - and gives straight answers - important to determining how we think about - and fight - the War on Terror.

TONY BLANKLEY is the editorial page editor of The Washington Times, a regular panelist on The McLaughlin Group, a nationally syndicated columnist with Creators Syndicate, and a popular speaker and radio and television pundit. For seven years he was press secretary to then Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, and before that served President Ronald Reagan as a speechwriter and senior policy analyst.
