I think history makes it pretty clear that Islamic faith is not compatible with western values. Whether that is sensible or not is another question. However, it is shown everyday that they are not compatible and there is little hope given to say they ever will be. The western opinion though can be somewhat contradictive. We say the burqua takes away the human rights of a woman, which I agree it does, but then the west bans them. This is just also taking away a right to religions to have their own rules and for women to have the right to express their religion. Things like this can be looked at in different points of view, and I am sure not everything in Islamic faith can be considered negative by westerners if they really studied it.
