Como o passado prova que o Islão pode ser parte da identidade Europeia?

Apesar das alegações de crescimento das manchetes e de muitos políticos de direita em toda a UE argu-mentando que o Islão não pertence à Europa, não é tão estrangeiro quanto parece, uma vez que as comunidades muçulmanas já existiam na Europa durante vários séculos. Bósnios, Albaneses, e alguns Gregos e Eslavos Búlgaros, são nativos Europeus Muçulmanos cujos antepassados, através da inter-acção com as civilizações Árabes e Turco-Otomanas, se converteram ao Islão. O Islão também foi reconhecido no Império Austro-Húngaro. Mesmo Adolf Hitler tentou encontrar simpatizantes da ideologia racista Nazi entre os muçulmanos bósnios. Hoje em dia, as Mesquitas de comunidades de imigrantes na Europa Ocidental já converteram dezenas de milhares de pessoas de ascendência nativa.

Como o Islão, o Cristianismo também é de origem do Médio Oriente. Mesmo quando o Imperador Constantino, o primeiro a assinar o "tratado de Milão", que reconheceu o estatuto social dos cristãos no Império Romano, este édito marcou o Cristianismo como uma seita de fé judaica, praticada pelos hebreus israelitas.

Como o Cristianismo e o Budismo, o Islão é uma religião universal e não é uma nação ou cultura, como os nacionalistas afirmam. Qualquer um pode converter-se a ele, não importa o seu passado ou origem, independentemente da afiliação religiosa dos muçulmanos na Europa e da sua cor da pele. A única questão que deve ser levantada e respondida é - por que é que grupos de extrema-direita e outros movimentos de islamofobia tratam os muçulmanos como estrangeiros?

Em primeiro lugar, antes da imigração massiva da África e da Ásia para a Europa Ocidental durante o século XX, a população religiosa no continente era predominantemente Cristã e, ao mesmo tempo, um número crescente de pessoas aderiram aos pontos de vista ateus ou agnósticos.

Em segundo lugar, até ao final do século, imigrantes e cidadãos de ascendência Turca, Árabe e do Paquistão / Bangladesh, eram socialmente, culturalmente e economicamente segregados em 'guetos Europeus devido à exploração e ao racismo das massas'.

Em paralelo, os governos europeus não poderiam lidar com o elevado desemprego e os baixos resultados educacionais entre os jovens de origem estrangeira. Além disso, com as políticas de reconhecimento que permitiram que centros islâmicos fossem financiados a partir do estrangeiro, as comunidades muçulmanas tornaram-se ainda mais culturalmente alienadas sob a influência estrangeira. Portanto, as crianças muçulmanas que vivem na França ou na Alemanha são obrigadas a seguir os costumes e tradições de origem dos pais, em vez de se tornarem cidadãos alemães ou franceses integrados, praticando a fé islâmica. Tais condições só violam a universalidade do Islão e impedem-nos de se adaptar em sociedades da Europa Ocidental. Além disso, por causa dos valores patriarcais praticados nestas comunidades imigrantes isoladas, muitos acreditam erroneamente que o Islão suprime os direitos das mulheres.

Em comparação, em algumas sociedades islâmicas como o Irão e a Turquia, um grande esforço é feito para manter a taxa de alfabetização alta entre a população feminina e proibir a poligamia. Depois da Primavera Árabe, países como Egipto e Tunísia tentam alcançar a igualdade de género, como costumava ser no Ocidente cristão durante os séculos XIX e XX.

Por outro lado, a exclusão social em curso com más condições económicas nas cidades europeias, austeridade e desemprego de longa duração são os principais catalisadores da radicalização religiosa, não só entre os jovens de origem imigrante, mas também entre os muçulmanos convertidos de ascendência nativa.

Se o objectivo dos governos da Europa Ocidental é transformar 'o Islão na Europa "em" Islão da Europa "e trazer a Bósnia, o Kosovo e a Albânia para a UE, as políticas de integração devem, cultural e linguisticamente, absorver centros islâmicos, escolas e mesquitas.

Por exemplo, quando uma pessoa alemã escolhe converter-se ao Islão, ele/ela têm que aprender os ensinamentos religiosos no idioma alemão em vez de turco ou curdo, e não devem abandonar seus/suas tradições e valores culturais. Financiar mesquitas europeias por parte da UE e governos locais pode diminuir a influência do Estado Islâmico, localizado no Médio Oriente, diminuir a oportunidade de radicalização entre os jovens e, por fim, convidar bósnios, albaneses e kosovares como pessoas culturalmente Europeias, para a união. A língua árabe pode ser usada com a finalidade de compreender o significado do Alcorão, que foi originalmente escrito no dialeto local da península Arábica, mas não para demonstrar as comunidades muçulmanas europeias como culturalmente estrangeiras.

Uma abordagem alternativa para fazer com que o Islão seja parte integrante da identidade europeia é possível, a longo prazo, como a história da fé Cristã provou isso. Nos primeiros séculos, quando o Cristianismo foi quase indistinguível do Judaísmo original, os seguidores gentios de messias Yeshua ha-Notzri (ou Jesus de Nazaré) tiveram que estrictamente praticar e aprender os costumes culturais, tradições e língua dos hebreus do Médio Oriente, conhecido hoje como povo judeu.

Apesar do número de seguidores de Cristo ter crescido rapidamente no Império Romano, ao longo de décadas, os cristãos gentios, eventualmente em menor número, tornaram-se mais dominante do que judeus cristãos originais. As igrejas foram perdendo os laços com o Médio Oriente e com as diásporas judaicas e, eventualmente, as reformas sociais e religiosas do imperador Constantino o Grande, no século IV finalizaram o processo. A assimilação cultural e linguística do cristianismo ou "seita judaica" na civilização romana/europeia foi concluída, apesar da fé Cristã ainda hoje abraçar valores religiosos judaico-abraâmicos.

Se o Islão Europeu segue um processo muito similar, então os ensinamentos religiosos do Profeta Muhammad (p.e.c.e.) tornar-se-ão uma parte espiritual da UE. Mesquitas europeizadas podem tornar- -se uma arquitectura notável de arte europeia e da história, da mesma forma como as Catedrais cristãs.

Talvez as mulheres muçulmanas europeias que também seguem valores sociais europeus, possam demonstrar-se como um excelente exemplo do Islão reformista, de igualdade de género e sucesso na educação, carreira e conquistas no desporto, política e ciência para congéneres que vivem em países muçulmanos fora da UE.

Em paralelo, há uma forte razão para evitar conflitos religiosos entre Muçulmanos e Cristãos, já que ambos acreditam no mesmo Deus (em árabe conhecido como Allah) e aderem aos mesmos Profetas, especialmente Jesus (conhecido como Issa no Islão), que é muito notável em ambas as confissões.

Finalmente, é importante ter em mente que a radicalização islâmica é tão hostil quanto o extremismo cristão, grupos de extrema-direita e movimentos ultra-esquerdistas, que diariamente abusam da democracia, direitos civis, liberdade de discurso e de expres-são na União Europeia e noutros países ocidentais. E os muçulmanos moderados, juntamente com outras confis-sões e grupos de direitos   cívicos, podem expressar a solidariedade em conjunto para proteger a democracia e a segurança europeia.

PhD: New World Order?

Posted: October 10, 2015, 5:04 am
Things have changed since the Berlin Wall fell. Some readers of this blog (assuming I have any) may not have even been born during the period of 1989-91 which saw the end of ideological bipolar world (p3).

What was the end of communism as a global power replaced with? With a new unipolar global order based on market capitalism and liberal democratic institutions and processes of government. There was also a strong growth of civil society operating relatively independent of market capitalism and processes of government.

Religion's situation has changed - ironically "its role has grown in significance". Global order could never really control the role of globalised religion and religious identity and culture, especially in the established religions which easily crossed national and political boundaries. At best, global order could try to regulate religion.

So what is global order anyway? "Global order" means more than just the international order of states. Order is

... a concrete state of affairs which is dominant, or rapidly becoming so, in space (the globe) and time (contemporary) in respect of human activity and the surrounding beliefs, values and ideas" (p3).


The collapse of the Soviet Union and end of the bipolar world has been accompanied by globalisation, often seen "overwhelmingly as an economic and technological matter". Religion has entered political and social consciousness largely due to

... the resurgence of a militant Islam and in particular its challenge to modern (Western) values and power.


So "Islamism" is seen as competing with global Western hegemony. (p1) Religion, especially Islam, has come to be seen as a threat to global order and particularly to Western dominance therein. The main threat seen as Islam. Secular political and economic ideology as a source of competing alternative world views has declined. (p4)

A rather complicated way of saying that Islam is the new communism. Perhaps we really are still living in a bipolar world after all. The human race is suffering from bipolar disorder.

5 Muslim Inventions That Changed The World

Coffee

About 1,600,000,000 cups of coffee are consumed every day around the world. Billions of people rely on it as part of their daily routines. And yet, very few people are aware of the Muslim origins of this ubiquitous drink.

According to the historical record, in the 1400s coffee became a very popular drink among Muslims in Yemen, in the southern Arabian Peninsula. Legend goes that a shepherd (some say in Yemen, some say in Ethiopia) noticed that his goats became very energetic and jumpy when they ate beans from a particular tree. He had the courage to try them himself, noticing they gave him an energy boost. Over time, the tradition of roasting the beans and immersing them in water to create a sour yet powerful drink developed, and thus, coffee was born.

Organic Halal Meats Get Muslims Thinking About What It Really Means To Eat Religiously

By | Huffington Post  | 10 Oct 2014

The Prophet Muhammad advised his followers to treat animals with kindness and, if needed, kill them mercifully for food. And he didn’t mince words.

“Whoever kills a sparrow or anything bigger than that without a just cause, Allah will hold him accountable on the Day of Judgment,” the Prophet reportedly said.

Remembering these instructions, New York farmer Zaid Kurdieh says much of the meat that brands itself as halal, or religiously permissible, is nothing but a sham.
