Dear Mr. President,
The events of the last decade force us to rethink our relationship between the West and the Muslim world. Otherwise, like in the past years, we will face one disaster after another.
I think that should put the following 10 points on the top of our considerations.
1: The West is a lot more violent than the Muslim world. Millions of Arabic civilians have been killed since the start of colonialism. Not once in the last 200 years has a Muslim country attacked a western country.
2: Nothing promotes terrorism more than the West’s “anti-terror wars”. They are a
3: Terrorism is not a typically Muslim problem, but a global one instead.
4: Terrorists under the guise of Islam are murderers. Leaders of wars of aggression
violating international law under the guise of Christianity are as well.
5: Muslims were and still are at least as tolerant as Jews and Christians.
6: The love of God and the love of ones neighbor are the main commandments in the
Koran as well, and not just in the Bible.
7: Western politics towards the Muslim world suffer from a frightening ignorance of the simplest facts.
8: The West needs to treat the Muslim world just as fairly and generously as it (rightly) treats Israel. Muslims are worth just as much as Jews and Christians.
9: Muslims need to work towards an Islam of progress and tolerance, as their Prophet
Mohammed did. They need to rip the religious mask from the face of “Muslim terrorism”.
10: The order of the day is the art of statesmanship, not the art of war – in Afghanistan, in Pakistan, in Iraq, in Iran, in Syria and in Palestine.
I ask you to please help redefine our relationship with the Muslim world.
