Saving Western Civilization and Global Freedom. I am seeking funding to research Islamic terrorism in Europe. My recent book showed some aspects requiring further research e.g. on 10 Dec 2008 the UN extended the domain of secularism to cover the whole Universal Declaration and I show that in the case of Bangladesh this led to an enormous eruption of violence by Muslim extremists who are anti-secular. The UN decision may also have led to a increase in Islamic violence globally.
