Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The proposal here is not that Christianity is inherently better or worse than Islam. It is that they are fundamentally different in their value systems and social dogmas, which often makes cohabitation difficult - as is factually attested in numerous geographic locations where the two communities live side by side.

Indeed, that was the whole point of Enlightenment, which does not mean that its values are accepted by all (or most for that matter) Christians, atheists, Hells Angels or Muslims - whether they live in Europe or Mecca.

It's good to have vision and philosophy, but it's also necessary to be down to earth and practical. This is about the real interactions between people on Dollis Hill and the East End, between Les Mureaux and the 16th Arrondissement in Paris...

Are we talking about the same thing?
