Clash of cultures, Islam and the west
Everyday one sees a growing distrust which is fuelling a divide in the West and Islamic communities. Some say it has been going on for centuries however, in today's global world surely we should understand the idea of mutual respect?
To call this movement, whose most potent recent manifestation is the Islamic State, a “dark ideology” is like calling Nazism a reaction to German humiliation in World War I: true but wholly inadequate. There is little point in Western politicians rehearsing lines about there being no battle between Islam and the West, when in all the above-mentioned countries tens of millions of Muslims, with much carnage as evidence, believe the contrary.
