Egyptian author Dr. Tarek Heggy said that it is not unreasonable for Westerners to draw their own conclusions when they observe that most terrorists are Muslims, even if not all Muslims are terrorists. He said that a secular state is not an infidel state, explaining that it is simply a state where religion is a private matter. Dr. Heggy also stated that political Islam, such as the Islam espoused by ISIS, is not a Western invention, and that it can be found in Islamic history. Speaking about immigration, Dr. Heggy said that Europeans are bringing in people with a deep-seated hatred for the West and warned that a world war is curtained to be launched against Islam if traditional Islam is left in the hands of religious institutions. Dr. Heggy was interviewed on Al-Hurra TV (U.S.) on November 5, 2018.
