Poll - Does The West Have A Problem With Islam?

Yes, they do. or at least this is what my poll showed.

%90 of the people who participated in my blog's poll about "Do you think the western countries have a problem with Islam?" voted for a YES!!

Besides my humble poll, there were two articles lately that seem to support the opinion that the west (in general) seems to have a problem with Islam. The articles are:

Of course there are so many other instances of misunderstanding, mistrust, and wrong behaviour between muslims and non-muslims (generally speaking) but the ones i mentioned above are the most resent.

I think this is a two way thing. Not only the west makes mistakes, treats muslims like low lives (some of them do anyway), biased to Israel no matter what they do (some of them at least), portrays us as terrorists, and so on. But, we also are to blame for the awful image most of us give to Islam.

The thing is, how will we break that "blaming circle" and do something about it?!

I think that the west is completely justified in mistreating and disrespecting us because we disrespect ourselves. Try to look at it from their perspective, won't we look like barbaric bloodthirsty people who oppress their women and want to fight the whole world? What would be your motive to cooperate and work with such people?

Well, if i was a person who doesn't want to be fair, yeah you're right.

Same thing applies to the muslim point of view (mistreating and disrespecting western coutries...etc.) as i mentioned...
becuase from most muslims point of view the west: "treats muslims like low lives (some of them do anyway), biased to Israel no matter what they do (some of them at least), portrays us as terrorists, and so on".

So if muslims and non-muslmis can not try to be fair...there will be no-use, we will eventually clash. And i am not talking about the idiotic terrorist acts happening these days...i mean full scale wars.
