Archbishop Cyril Salim Bustros, an expert on Christian-Islamic relations, explains the gravity of the situation. A great article on the Muslim world population, my only problem with the article is Abp. Bustros almost apologetic attitude about Islam:
"Muslims see their opponents as the godless West. They are convinced of the superiority of their culture and obsessed with the inferiority of their power," Archbishop Bustros said. "Muslims fear and resent Western power and the threat which this poses to their society and beliefs."
Much of that fear is justified by the history of colonialism in the 19th and 20th centuries and by the Western powers' arbitrary redrawing of boundaries in the Middle East after the two World Wars, especially the establishment of the state of Israel in predominantly Muslim Palestine.
Today, many Muslims see themselves "as victims of a widespread anti-Muslim prejudice comparable to anti-Semitism," Archbishop Bustros said.
Definitely a must-read article with an impressive analysis and doomsday implications.
