Abstract:The past century did not only embrace memories of millions who died in horrifying wars initiated in the name of religions and faiths, but it set the stage for the current ruthless venue that continues to add blood and shame to the records of the past wars that mutilated the existence of mortals. The intense confrontation between the West and Islam is not a new born. It is a long lasting war that embraced a larger description to become a war of religions. There exists a current cloudless demarcation between the West and Islam. It is a delineation that openly flamed after the atrocious events of 9/11 2001 and has its basis in humans' actions in the near and far pasts. The reality of this interaction is the basis of this study. The global image for the most part vividly and continuously portrays the West as the "good" and Islam and its followers as the "bad." In this document, I try to propose an end to this language of duality and to explore the actions and the reactions of selected individuals in their personal experience with the chronic fights, struggles, and misunderstandings of the Islamic faith. Moreover, this critical hermeneutic research offers an exploration to the possibilities of fusing the horizons of the Muslim world with that of others. More specifically, it is a medium in which to explore the space of Islam as an ontological identity in shaping the relationship between the West and Islam. It is my intention to create a text for the Muslims to re-imagine the stories told about them by allowing them to retell their own.
