Islam In America

Writing in an OpEd piece for the New York Times, Vali R. Nasr comments, “Russia’s problems with Muslim societies are bigger than the West’s. Some of its restless Muslim regions are turning to extremism; that is why Russia has always looked at the Arab Spring with suspicion, fearing that successful Arab rebellions would inspire Islamic risings in Russia.”

What do you think? Are more problems sure to arise in former Soviet states (especially in Central Asia) due to an escalating conflict between Orthodox Christianity and Islam?
