To not see that the islamic world has failed so far to create societies with a healthy level of secularism in spite of a long exposure to Modernity is a huge blunder in my view.

Saddam's Iraq was very secular.

Muslim communities worldwide cannot be lumped together. My wealthy riding in Mississauga is 1/3 Muslim - very well integrated ( our MP is sometimes Muslim ) and as peacable if not more than the numerous others that comprise the Canadian mosaic of cultures.

We have not ghettoized them as happens in France which breeds resentment and opportunity for radicalism to take hold.
