Islam and Secularism in the Middle East
Azzam Tamimi, John L. Esposito
C. Hurst, 2000 - Islam and politics - 214 pages
Secularism has often been regarded as a positive achievement of Western civilization. The separation of church and state, the rule of law, enhanced state power and authority, toleration of religious sects within an independent civil society, the citizen's freedom from organized religion, the relegation of religious belief to the private sphere - all such secularizing trends are perceived as benefits.
