UN's Ban Ki Moon warns Europe against 'dangerous' anti-Muslim trend
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon warned on Tuesday against a 'dangerous trend' of intolerance targeting Muslim immigrants in Europe, in a speech to the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
'A dangerous trend is emerging, a new politics of polarization. Some play on people's fears,' Ban said, adding, 'They accuse immigrants of violating European values.'
'Yet too often it is the accusers who subvert these values and thus the very idea of what it means to be a citizen of the European Union,' he continued.
