Islam in Africa - something else to help you sleep at night

I found a version of this map at Pamela's Atlas Shrugs page:

The green area is "predominantly muslim." The shaded area is going to be predominantly muslim soon. The shaded area and the southern green areas are where the most violence takes place now. Those areas also have the most oil (and the most genital mutilation). The more green Africa gets, the higher the price of oil.

[The whole red state/blue state thing doesn't seem so bad now, does it?]

[Actually, yes it does. If we didn't have blue states in the U.S., we could do more to confront the Green States in Africa and elsewhere.]

Pamela advocates her own solutions, which may be a good start.

I bet if we seriously reversed the flow of Islam anywhere in the world, it would appear less "inevitable" to its followers and the flow of Islam across Africa would slow. In order for that to happen, we would need to seriously re-think our own multiculturalism.
