Abstract
To ensure world peace and security in twenty-first century, hostile relationship between the two major civilizations in the world today should be managed. Considering the geographical distribution of Muslims in the world today, we can see on the top of the world’s known fuel deposits, most important trade routes – the Mediterranean, the Red Sea, the Bosporus, the Black Sea, and the Straits of Malacca – are all heavily populated by Muslims. Over the past half-century, many events have highlighted the role of Islam as a cultural and political force in international affairs. They have generated debates and discourses, many of which fall under polemics and apologetics. To understand how and why certain anti-rational tendencies have gained ground in the Islamic world, we need to consider their historical and socio-political context, including the official state policies, notably the attempts to crush major mainstream Islamist movements such as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and the cancellation of Algeria’s elections. This paper aims to present a critical reading of some of the problems faced by the Muslim world and their impacts on international system. The method of approach in this paper is descriptive with explaining the relationship among International relations, Islam, peace and security.
