According to police detectives, Villalobos became obsessed with tigers. The West has in its own way become obsessed with the Muslim world. Westerners going off to seek oneness with the mysterious east are not a new phenomenon, but a hundred years ago they did not drag entire countries and civilizations them with into the tiger’s maw. Today the new Lawrences of Arabia are no longer playing with Eastern empires; they are trifling with the survival of the West.
When Villalobos jumped into the tiger’s den, there were police officers and zookeepers there to rescue him. But as the West leaps into the tiger’s den, who will be there to save us?
