The interaction between civilizations - although a burning issue - is a barest necessity. In this century one of the main inter- civilization splits is known to pass between the West and the Islamic world. Their relations are growingly complicated by numerous myths, biases and prejudices. The historical memory of nations comes back to new generations as a boomerang and causes new twists of confrontation, eventually hindering the settlement. The main reason for and manifestations of intolerance in the mass culture and mass consciousness of both modern Muslim and Western society are analyzed. Today the negative image of Islam is dominated in Western public opinion. The growth medium of islamophobia in the West is the raising of transnational religious extremism as well as it's incorrectly critique. Some political and ideological powers of the West as well as the Muslim East are extremely interested in the aggravation of the "Islamic issue". The author argued that because of the increasing threats to global and regional security xenophobia's potential to destabilize the modern world order has increased. The path to forming ethnic and religious harmony is the correct and unbiased popularization of modern scientific knowledge of Islam. At the same time both Muslim and Western societies require the advanced training in various genres of Islamic studies.
