Assistant Director of Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, EGYPT SOME AMERICAN AND EUROPEANS POLITICIANS AND intellectuals admit this problematic. They found solution in distinguishing between what they prefer to describe as Moderate Moslem and those whom are fanatics and extremists.In some cases a call for launching a dialogue with influential Islamic groups in the Arab and Moslem countries appear to be an exit from the stalemate. Other refused such calls. Meanwhile some top American and European politicians used the term “Islamic Fascism” which practically connected in indirect way between Islam and terrorism. This diversity in tackling the relations with Moslems and Islam helped in escalating the Islamophobia among many Global Powers and cemented the negative principals of clash of civilizations instead of building more mutual understanding.
