Islam can very well be compatible if it is made open to interpretation.
every belief, religion, and culture has oppressed women, including christianity.
the belief of christianity has lead to some of the most brutal oppression and straight up torture in human history. beliefs like christianity and islam can take many forms and stress many different priorities. and most have a commandment that one must follow the law of their home nation.
Not if that belief leads to action that opresses certain group, like women for example
I don't support any religion but I think it is WRONG to call someone elses beliefs inferior to your own. How are you to know what you believe isn't itself inferior? I think we should all be able to have our own thoughts (within reason) and be able to have our beliefs.
first of all i think we should all ask what are these western values? and then only we get to compare islame or any other religion to them.
Islam is responsible for many "Western values" including freedom of conscience. What's missing in some cases is the authentic understanding of Islam. Obviously you've got all your information from Fox News or something.
While it's true that some governments with Islam as their national religion are bad, any government can be bad. The government does not reflect on the people in it's population, and it does not reflect on it's national religion, as it can be influenced easily.
How? Back up your statement.
I'd argue that all religion is incompatible with Western Values. Biblical law isn't much better than the Koran.
