@ Domus Canus, Italy. --- A bad craftsman should not reflect on the tools that are used. Islam as a tool to usher in great human societies has proven earlier record. In the same way, speaking of dirt, sleaze and bloodshed too has been very much western civilization's gory past. Times change. Western civilization has made great material progress. They deserve a commensurate high standard in human values. I sincerely believe Islam has great spiritual, moral and ethical values around justice, compassion and generosity to contribute to Western civilization at this juncture in world history. This is crucial as the foundation of western civilization is tottering and it can crumble like a cookie, unless higher values are not imbibed by its movers and shakers. Islam and not Muslim world should be the focus of western studies. The West may in time to come become the great champion of Islam.
