European research on religious "fundamentalism" criticised
by Colin Randall
A leading German research institute faces criticism over a six-nation survey concluding that "Islamic fundamentalism" in Europe is not a "marginal phenomenon" but attracts wide support among Muslims.
Two-thirds of Muslims interviewed about their attitudes towards religion said religious rules were more important to them than state laws, according to the report from the WZB social science centre.
The survey also showed more than half of Muslim respondents believed the West was "out to destroy Islam".
