Difference between Islam in the West and the Middle East


Q6 Host: Is there any difference between Islam in the West, and Islam in the Middle East? (1:45)


Dr. Labib: Well, it is interesting. You know, Newsweek wrote a very interesting article about the Western Islam. Of course, when Muslims came to the West, here, they saw that they cannot, at all, convert people to Islam, which is the real Islam, the Islam of the Koran. What did they say in order to convert people? They said to them that it is the religion of brotherhood, love, kindness, respect for women, of course they have to say that. Any Muslim man who lives in the US, or Germany, or Britain, or any Western country, cannot marry but one woman at one time! He cannot practice his Islam. If he cannot practice his Islam, Islam is not practical in the West. The Muslim clerics are now trying to portray Islam as a kind, loving religion of brotherhood. At the same time, they attack the fundamental belief of Christians every day, in radio, in television, by printing, by booklets, by books, because of the freedom of the West. You cannot do that in any Muslim countries.

Zach - One need only look at the history of Islam as it ran amok in the Middle East into Europe & over India to South East Asia, to see what kind of a religion Islam is. Muslims are commanded to hate ALL non-Muslims & non-Islamic things & convert or destroy. Live quietly among non-Islamic states until you can forcibly convert. BUT the hypocracy of The Quran also states about forcing conversion in that it makes the CONvert a hypocrite. Nice bit of contradiction there, eh?

Does this mean that true Islam is impossible in the west?

One of the main things I've felt from learning about Islam is that the Islamic religion seems to me to be a religion that highlights the idea of love. Love is the ultimate thing that brings people together, while hate divides us. This is what I struggle with, I wish that everyone would love each other endlessly, but so many people make snap judgements or believe stereotypes. I just wish that we could all come back to the simple idea of love, but I know that's harder to do than said.

I am confused by this post. When you say men cannot take more than one wife in the West, does that mean in order to be Muslim you need mulitiple? Then where does that leave women? If you could enhance what you are trying to say that would be much appreciated!

I am currently reading Being Muslim by Haroon Siddiqui. In the book, Islam is portrayed as being very peaceful. Is Islam really as peaceful as Siddiqui portrays it?
