One of the reasons why Islam grew in the first place was because it allowed rebellion against the rulers of the time. It was a poor peoples religion. It still is. It still is the reason why millions of people world wide convert. it is not only a poor peoples religion it is also a religion wchich emphasises other values than consumerism, over sexualised imagery and favours spirituality and community over our greedy and overly individualised all for ourselves society.

And no I’m not a Muslim but that does not mean I can’t see why there religion might be so attractive to all those people empoverished by the US and Western Corporate machine.

And if I’m not mistaken that was once how Christianity started out as well.
