Muslims in the West

Tariq Ramadan

Seen as directly related to the immigration of foreigners into European society, several factors have made it very difficult, and sometimes virtually impossible, to engage in significant and creative debate over the issue of the presence of Muslims in Europe. “Islamophobia”, the title of a study commissioned in Great Britain by the Runnymede Trust in 1997, may well symbolize the state of mind of many Europeans in response to Islam. Were these events and attitudes the whole measure of European response to Islam, it would be easy to come to the conclusion that Islam is incompatible with European legislation or the European mindset and, by the same token, that it is impossible for Muslims to integrate. A true analysis both of the character of the Muslim identity and of its possibilities for integration into European society must also take into account the realities both of history and of everyday life, with its energy, fluctuation, and development.
