Le pape lit le CoranCet article examine la réponse catholique à la croissance de l'Islam dans le monde occidental à la lumière de la vision de l'Église concernant le dialogue interreligieux et l'évangélisation. L'Église Catholique a-t-elle une stratégie cohérente par rapport à l'Islam? Cette stratégie fonctionne-t-elle? Est-elle réaliste? Est-elle biblique?

Church of Saint George Maronite and Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque in Downtown BeirutAlthough Islam and Christianity seem to have certain points of doctrine in common, there is an enormous difference between them, not only in beliefs about salvation and Christ but in many other areas affecting daily life, human behavior and attitudes.

The Cross and the CrescentJesus and Muhammad could hardly have been more different in how they lived or in what they taught others. Why should we not expect starkly contrasting legacies - from the conduct of their closest companions to the livability of modern-day countries influenced by the predominance of one founder's teachings over the other?

The Muslim Brotherhood

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.

ISISFor dyed-in-the-wool jihadi warriors, an asymmetrical approach to warfare with Israel - one which results in many Gazan civilian casualties - is actually a gateway to religious merit and reward. This is not a cycle of violence, or simply a deep animosity between Isaac and Ishmael. It is a fight between (on one hand) Islamist kamikazes who don't surrender, a group of post-Hiroshima-like zombies, and (on the other hand) the Jewish people returning to their Promised Land in fulfilment of ancient Hebrew prophecies.
