Bob Wright argues that proselytizing is increasing the tension between Muslims and Christians:

Depending on the country, Christian proselytizers may be of various nationalities and use various methods. But whatever form the recruiting takes, it is often perceived by Muslims as cultural aggression unprovoked aggression, since they’re not generally inclined to proselytize, and serious aggression, since in many Muslim cultures it’s a grave thing for a believer to stray from the fold. And even when American Christians aren’t doing the proselytizing, they’re often supporting it via money that flows from American churches especially evangelical ones to outreach programs abroad.
