Muslims in the West

Jørgen Bæk Simonsen

Whether globalization is the cause or the consequence of change, it seems to be a generally accepted presumption that, in the very near future, those who will be most dramatically confronted with its political, social, and cultural consequences are the countries in the so-called two-thirds world. This has been apparent in Muslim countries ever since the advent of modern European imperialism. Two reactions set in: one expressed a need for defense in the form of jihad, and the other called for a critical revitalization of Islam. Revitalization was first formulated and expressed by the intellectual elite, and later picked up as a means of social mobilization by movements such as the Muslim Brotherhood. Islamism is a modern sociocultural phenomenon that cannot be attributed to one cause only, but it is beyond doubt that increasing external pressure plays an extremely important role. This chapter discusses the presence of Muslims in Denmark.
