This means that education is nothing more than acquiring specific skills and techniques and less emphasis on moral education. Ambassador Ahmed notes that this attitude of arrogance and venomous contempt for Muslims extends into the highest echelons of the Bush administration. Journey into Islam: The Crisis of Globalization is the riveting story of his search for common ground. The colonial experience that initially pitted various European powers against one another in their quest to subjugate Muslims and monopolize their economic resources lasted until after the end of the second world war.
