This is an excellent article by academic Susanne Schröter, writing in DW. She maintains that Islam has an enlightened side and a totalitarian side and concludes that only a liberal, self-critical and reflective type of Islam could have a future in Germany.

Whilst this is an excellent and powerful analysis, I suggest that it is not entirely real world. Surely, the totalitarian side of Islam is on the ascendancy?

Thoughts?

  1. Dr Alf is right, “Liberal and self critical” are not words that can be applied to Islam ,even in its mildest form because it is a religion and a philosophy that is not compatible with Judeo Christian ethics,Confucian values,Buddhist values or agnosticism or secular humanism.
