Islam and Tolerance Can Coexist

Senegal is a good example.

No surprise there. Same thing for Mali. I have long argued on my blog that it is BLACKS who provide most of the moderatism within Islam - compared with other groups - which explains it in USA (where a plural majority of U.S. Muslims are black) vs. Europe and other areas. That is why the protests over the cartoons have not gotten violent in Africa or USA, as they have in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. No wonder African Muslims are often considered 'heretic' by Asian and especially ARab Muslims, and hence the various 'Arabization' campaigns on the continent.

The real question: can Asian and especially ARAB Islam and tolerance exist?

Shay that is a load of crap. Quite racist too. Being a black Muslim doesn't make you any different than being a Arab Muslim or a Chinese Muslim or a white Muslim. If you say you are Muslim, no matter what skin colour you may be, you fellow the same religion which is Islam. The difference in reaction about those hateful "cartoons" is not because of skin colour but rather in different cultures.
