Corruption is a very dangerous social phenomenon especially if is a must as in Algeria.If you want something to be done whether is legal or not you should pay money to the person who presumely can do it for you.From bribing the policeman to corrupting a high ranking personality in the government to win a multimillion economic contract it is the way how the political machine operates in Algeria.You will have a pass if you pay but if you play by the rules you need to worry you are just wasting your time.However, corrupted countries end up fighting this sickness by anothers means, such as, civil wars, unrests revolutions... to change the situation, resulting thousands of casualties.Corruption give the birth to social injustice which facilitate the creation of an angry class that can get nothing.

It's not corruption as you know it in the West, its "baksheesh" which means tipping and is a traditional way of thanking someone who does you a favour.

The practice is widespread in the Muslim world and has nothing to do with Western forms of corruption.

i think that you want to say corruption is widespread in the arabic world not the muslim one . because islam is against corruption . embezzling . bribing
and it is right that if you want to do any thing you have to pay for .because of that we do not make any advance
