Culture and civilization are not to be confused

From a Dr. Demarche post at American Future (April 19):

...The blogosphere and mainstream media teem with variations of the "is this a clash of civilizations or is it not" debate. I, for one, have finally made up my mind. It is not. It takes two to tango, after all, and I have become increasingly convinced that our opposition not only is uncivilized in broad terms, it also has no concept of civilization. They have a culture, to be sure, one of violence and fear, under which horrific acts are justified as supporting the will of God, but culture and civilization are not to be confused...
