Islam Isn’t Taking Over Europe

http://www.realclearreligion.org/articles/2011/04/25/europes_supposed_islamic_crisis_106239.html

“By the late 21st century, people of Muslim origin could account for as much as 15 or 20 percent of Europe’s people, but that will represent a plateau. That is a solid minority community, but — unless someone has changed the laws of mathematics — it is nowhere near a majority, still less a flood tide.

So where do the fears of Islamicization come from? Partly, Europe’s experiences with minorities are very different from those of the US. The continent used to have sizable ethnic minorities, but most of them perished in the 1940s. Later generations grew up in a very homogeneous society, so any diversity at all — any appearance of brown skins — tends to startle.”

I write about the dichotomies present in religion, gathered mostly from discussions with average Jews, Christians, Muslims and atheists.
