ISIS version of “Caliphate” feasible in UK?
Rita Boulos Chahwan
Discussing the “Caliphate” (known as “khalifa”) on BBC news (UK), young British Muslims living under the British law were presenting their opinion concerning the ISIS version of “Caliphate”, possibility of institutionalize it, either Quran version of “Caliphate” or Isis same as its practices at the wider societal level in British Society. One of the Guest speaker whish represent the Pro – British community considered that the nationality given by the British government gave her the possibility to practice her Islam same as taking advantage of services presented by the government. The Comprehensive government is producing feelings of security .
liberal, openness , sureness 3 words were leading her part of discussion . A pro-Islam young man, who seems converted newly, share a different point of view, he is in a search for the Idea of “Islamic state”. Is it in Iraq? Syria? In the Book (Quran) in his neighbor opinion? In the British society open to all different social idea like : gender, homosexuality, rights , human rights, law, international law … ? The discusser were trying to find out the answers of these question having in mind one goal: is it feasible in UK?
What it shows that Muslim in that region of the planet are not involved in the heart of action leading violence in arab world. Not ready to get arrested, as one of the guests was trying to inform. So can we conclude that the west is not very open to problematic approaches of Islamic state? We can.. but the real question is does this distance (border & culture) between east (islamic approach) and west will permit to the Uk Government taking part in the war against Isis in Iraq and Syria ? does the pro- British maintain her same opinion once Uk will be involved ?
