First Islamophobia summit to be held in Europe
The first European Islamophobia Summit will take place this coming weekend in Sarajevo and a member of the summit advisory panel told The Jerusalem Post that the continent is in a "dangerous moment."
"People in Europe had previously been uncomfortable with the Muslim presence, but the refugee crisis has brought the issue out into the open," said Muddassar Ahmed, who also is a patron at the Faiths Forum for London.
Cultural misunderstandings are becoming more common and long-time established Muslim communities that have been present on the continent for 40 to 50 years are having to deal with discrimination caused by the influx of Middle Eastern migrants and refugees, he said.
