Islamophobia looks different in Europe than it does in the US, where it gained traction only after 9/11. ++ In Europe, its roots are deeper and "Islamophobia is less thinly veiled." ++ Demographics however do not lend support to the fear that the continent will soon turn into "Eurabia," since birth rates for Muslims in Europe are not that high. ++ While the heated debate may be part "of a democratic process of adjustment, not the first signs of an impending catastrophe," Muslim voices remain unheard.
