but it is clear that there is a cultural struggle going on.

It's clear that the Arab world needs to modernize. Many muslims look at the violence and sex soaked western culture and wants no part of this kind of "modernization."

Thus, we need to find a way to offer the Arab world the democracy, freedom, technology, intellectual openess, etc. that comes with democracy while at the same time not making them afraid that their culture will be overrun with "immorality."
