Islam, Religion, International relations, Intercultural dialogue
Religia jest ważną częścią hierarchii kulturowej. Ma duży wpływ na kulturę, ale także jest od niej zależna. Dialog międzykulturowi i obopólne zrozumienie są niezbędne dla światowego pokoju i bezpieczeństwa, a także dla współistnienia różnych, często tak odmiennych kultur. Dlatego religia odgrywa często tak dużą rolę w stosunkach międzykulturowych.

A bridge and understanding between different cultures are of paramount significance for coexistence, security and world peace. Religion, which is an important and inseparable part of culture, can play a very crucial role in promoting or wreaking havoc with intercultural dialogue. The world has never seen a culture without religion. Religion is one of the fundamental elements of each culture. It may have stronger or less visible roles but it is always there. Religious institutions and religious leaders have always played very important roles in all societies. The priest, the rabbi or the imam can incite religious segregation and bigotry, and declare "holy war" against peoples who worship at different shrines. Influential religious people can easily manipulate and exploit their followers, arouse religious fanaticism, encourage the use of violent means of terrorism to intimidate and conquer those who are different and do not concur with them.
