Muslims in Europe in Perspective

Extract from a column by Doug Saunders, The Globe and Mail, March 26

…Europe’s Muslim population, of 19 million, is small and not growing very fast (the refugee and migrant waves are too small to make a statistical difference), but because they are urban and thus visible, and their crime and extremism problems make headlines, voters believe that Muslims are five times more populous than they are. The bright flashes are obscuring voters’ vision, like ours, and allowing them to see a picture of connectedness that doesn’t exist.
