Islam and the World

Are terrorist attacks and suicide bombings a betrayal of Islamic teaching? Is the world truly enduring a “clash of civilizations?” Are the world’s one billion Muslims a monolithic community, or is the diversity if Muslim life the key to understanding Islam’s future?

Islam often has uneasy relations with what passes for "modernity" across the rest of the globe: separation of church and state, equality for women, acceptance of an independent status for other religions (other than as prefiguring Islam), a secular legal system.
