This article discusses the origin of conflict between the Muslim and the Western countries. The history of the relationship between the two areas shows that the Muslim people were quite receptive of the economic and political models of the modern world. U.S. imperial policies in the Muslim countries have contributed to the nurturing of the Islamic revival of the recent decades. The rise of Islamic militancy and the violent reactions such as the September 11 terrorist attacks are manifestations of the clash of civilizations.
