Giovanni Sartori, considered one of the most important political scientists specializing in the study of comparative politics in Italy and internationally, has suggested that Islam is impossible to integrate.

He gives historical examples to support his thesis: the Moghul Empire that dominated India from the XV century for two hundred years, the recent Islamization of Turkey and Indonesia, all demonstrate that Islam, unlike Buddism (considered pacific and “pacioso”) and Induism ( polytheistic, hence more open to diversity) is a theocratic monotheism, that has just reborn and inflamed.

For this reason, as shown by the English and French case, trying to integrate Muslims by “Italianizing” them is a political mistake that Italy doesn’t have to make.
