Summary
Ehsan M. Ahrari argues that Islam has no tradition of separation of politics and religion, while that separation is at the heart of America's global promotion of democracy. Similarly, secularism is an important aspect of Western-style democracy, while the Islamists of all varieties emphatically reject that notion. Consequently, Islam and the United States have remained on opposite, conflicting, sides of key issues at the heart of politics, the style of governance, and the place of religion in a polity
