A very substantial part of this book's theoretical schema naturally comes from the experience of life in the West. This chapter tries to find out how to use the fundamental sources and their tools in the Western universe to make them effective in practice, and establishes an inventory of the assets and deficits of the current situation of Muslims in the West. It also examines the new and strong participation of women in the process of reappropriation and affirmation of identity. To this sad reality must be added two other kinds of separation that are no less operational and no less serious. The sum total of the deficits explains why Muslim discourse in the West today finds it so difficult to be clearly expressed and heard.
