Abstract

In a symposium which marks the publication of Norman Podhoretz's World War IV: The Long Struggle Against Islamofascism and is sponsored by the Edwin Morris Gale Memorial Fund, fifteen leading thinkers addressed selected questions that concerns war and conflicts. Questions include acceptance of panel with the term World War IV or the idea behind it as an apt characterization of the West's battle with Islamic extremism; progress assessment after the 9/11 attack; views concerning Norman Podhoretz's statement that democratization represents the best and perhaps even the only way to defeat Islamofascism and the terrorism it uses as its main weapon against the people; and views regarding the chance of Bush Doctrine to survive the elections of 2008. The panels include Fouad Ajami, John R. Bolton, Max Boot, Reuel Marc Gerecht, Victor Davis Hanson, Daniel Henninger, Martin Kramer, William Kristol, Andrew C. McCarthy, David Pryce-Jones, Claudia Rosett, Amir Taheri, Ruth Wedgwood, James Q. Wilson, and R. James Woolsey.
