Is it ever going to be safe for a white non-Muslim westerner to visit a Muslim country again? Particularly in the Middle East or North Africa?

I don't think that will happen anytime soon. It's a shame as I visited Egypt many years ago and would love to go again. I would enjoy visiting some of those countries but it's too dangerous now. Many would welcome us and our tourist revenue but there will always be groups that just won't welcome us and who knows what might happen.

Certainly not in the foreseeable future but "ever" is a long time. It'd be nice to think that sanity will eventually return.

Islam is very much a mediaeval religion and any progress will be slow.

It is and it will be safe, as Muslims are not your enemies.

That bunch who harm others, for me they are not Muslims. Islam is a peaceful religion and it teaches us patience and to love n respect others. A follower of Islam can never ever be dangerous for anyone.

I agree ! I know many Muslim people and like them more than I do most Christians. It's sad that all faiths and countries have their bad apples that make things worse for the peaceful people.

I know that Muslims are not "per se" my enemies. I've worked in Saudi, Dubai, Nigeria, Egypt. Things have changed though now.

It is safe, for the most part, for non-Muslims to visit Muslim countries. Muslim countries aren't just home to Muslims, but to many non-Muslims as well.
