The interview touches upon such issues as cultural compatibility of traditional European and Islamic values, possibilities of their conflict-free co-existence, spiritual crisis of the post-Christian West, and the phenomenon of «euro-Islam».

It seems that the Muslim world will be under tension for another several decades, but sooner or later it will exhaust itself. In author’s opinion, the next great era will be that of external limitations. What is needed is the happy medium combining spiritual freedom and strict social discipline.
