I know this may be a sensitive topic but it's one that needs to be discussed, i am never one to shy away from a debate!
Do you think that Islam belongs in the Western civilization? Do Western ideals belong in the Middle East & Far Eastern countries? Is there
incompatibility between Islam & the West? Should there be a definitive line where the West is on one side and Islam on the other? Would there be a lot
less religious tension in the world if both were kept apart?
Personally living in the UK i don't mind Islam being here, Muslims IMO have just as much right to live here as anyone else. We pride ourselves on
being tolerent, however tensions have been simmering for a while. Since the 9/11 attacks there have been more reported attacks and abuse against
Muslims, will this eventually evolve into a backlash?
I know i've asked a lot of questions, but i would like to debate about broader issues that effect us, not simply if you can mix Islam and the
So fire away!
