I think this is an interesting article:
I realize most people here (myself included) already consider that most of the ills of the world are related to colonialism if not caused by it but this is an interesting argument that adds more support to this idea.
I want to add that the colonial division and dividing up of many parts of the world introduced violence in many places making the problems in the above article worse. As well, I would add that the continued exploitation of former colonies also added pressure and poverty that makes this issue worse.
However, I had not in the past connected the extremism of Sharia with colonialism. I find this argument persuasive.
What do you think?
