Dancing elephants

A bag of conferences, seminars and lectures on Islam and the West has burst around the world. A way is being sought to stimulate interfaith dialogue and thus prevent a "civilization war". In such exchanges of views, there is usually a commendable consensus. Relations between the world's religions and the countries associated with them should not be bothered by "stereotypes", "untruths" or "prejudices". And it is also said that it would be appropriate for religious leaders to put their authority into public affairs. Whether it's business morale or global warming.

Muslim woman without veil

The multiculturalist illusion was once one of the manifestations of Dutch tolerance. The onslaught of radical Islamism at the beginning of the new millennium dramatically changed established customs. A wave of contagious populism is rising, and the very word Islam is enough to arouse anger and resentment. The living "Dutchness" sharply challenges the coexistence of the locals with Muslim immigrants. After the ousting of Aján Hirsí Ali, Naema Tahirová takes over the baton of critical Muslim women. At the time of the dispute over Geert Wilders' film, which no one has seen yet, but everyone is afraid of because it is known that a populist politician likens the Qur'an to Hitler's Mein Kampf, the Dutch "veil-free Muslim woman" offers a different kind of criticism of Islam.
