Summary/Abstract: There is a host of issues in the international arena with an Islamic view of them. Depending on the strength of the actors, the rationality and strength of the challenges, these issues are currently being examined and confronted with different views. Certain Islamic positions are basically rationalistic in their approach and strive towards establishing an international order where Muslims will assume an appropriate place and position. However, some other Islamic views are contrary to the dominant logic of international relations and there is a tendency to establish, using violent means, new Muslim political units or blocks opposed to Western hegemony. Everyday progress and growth of the influence of religious and Islamic views on the international scene is a solid indicator of the ever-growing importance of religion in this domain. These changes can indicate the appearance of a new historical era, which will be, as Michel Foucault defined it, a policy of spirituality.
