"To reckon with Islam"

"WE no longer regarded Islam as a rival to our own culture. We thought of its religion as a sort of fossilised thing about which we need no trouble. That was almost certainly a mistake. We shall almost certainly have to reckon with Islam in the near future. Perhaps if we lose our faith it will rise."

~Hilaire Belloc: Survivals and New Arrivals: The Old and New Enemies of the Catholic Church  (1929)
