Europe’s Failure to Integrate Muslims called a Recipe for Civil War

Bassam Tibi knows the obstacles a Muslim faces in Germany, where he has lived for 45 years and has been a citizen for two decades. As an internationally acknowledged expert on Islam, Tibi often appeared in the German media to discuss the Gulf War and was introduced as a Syrian holding a German passport. But when Tibi raised issues about Western Europe’s reception of its 20 million Muslim immigrants, he was suddenly declared persona non grata by the German media, who avoid discussing the status of the nation’s Muslims for fear of being perceived as targeting them.
