West-Islam civilisations clash rejected

Michael Gordon wrote in theage.com.au World opinion emphatically rejects the idea that Islam and the West are heading for an inevitable clash of civilisations, according to an ambitious poll of public attitudes across 27 countries, commissioned by The Age and the BBC World Service.

That is true. It is not a clash of civilizaions, but rather a clash of civilization vs uncivilized people.
But a significant minority across the world — and a narrow majority in Indonesia — said violent conflict between Islam and the West was inevitable.
Since their religion calls for the clash,
Surah 19:4294 says Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war .... If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. [A special tax that Jews and Christians must pay to live in a Muslim country. Followers of other religions are just killed outright if they refuse to convert to Islam.] If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them. [i.e. they must convert to Islam, pay a special very high tax so they can live as second class citizens, or die.]
and since we are not willing to die or become dhimmis, they are right.
Big majorities in Australia, the United States, Canada, Lebanon, Mexico and most European countries believed common ground can be found between the Muslim and Western cultures.

There was also a consensus in most of these countries that intolerant minorities on both sides, rather than fundamental differences between the two cultures or intolerant minorities on one side or the other, were to blame for tensions between Islam and the West.
How many people have been beheaded by Christians? How many Christians have blown themselves up just to kill others?

All three links related to fighting betweek Muslims and Christian groups in Indonesia which is 88% Muslim, and none refer to Christians beheading anyone.

Perhaps the Christians in Indoneaia (Protestant 5%, Roman Catholic 3%) don't like being treated as Dhimmis.

Christian America believes that Wahhabi, Arab Islamic Terrorists flushed with Oil incomes, aim to establish "an Islamic Caliphate covering a region from Spain, across North Africa, through the Middle East and South Asia, all the way to Indonesia -and it wouldn't stop there. The US Vice-President, Dick Cheney warned so on February 24, 2007 in Australia. Dick Cheney is right, as oil-funded Semite Arab Wahhabi Islamic terrorists "have ambitions of Islamic Empire" that aim to destroy Christian Civilization and the Western economies by Oil-Price Rise and nuclear attacks on Christian Western Europe, to take revenge of western disintegration of Ottoman Caliphate after First world War. United States should invite India as co-imperial power to rule the Iraqi oil colony, otherwise if Arab Islamic Jihadists tasted victory in Iraq, just as they tasted victory over white Christian Russians in Afghanistan, then Arab Islamic Jihadist would look for new missions, not only in Afghanistan but in capitals across the Middle East, Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia and Malaysia and the World civilization as we know would collapse and New Dark Age will descend on the Civilized Christian world. Dick Cheney correctly argued that Free Nations "have a duty" to stand in the way of the insurgents for the sake of their long-term security.
