Prejudice, discrimination and even racism are seemingly on the rise in Europe, especially when the topic of European and Muslim migrant relations arises. Many European respondents who show prejudice against immigrants also exhibit generalised negative attitudes towards Muslims and Islam. However, as Christina Boswell finds, the hostility towards immigrants appears to be counter-intuitive, given the extent to which European countries have benefited from immigration. Reciprocity in the sense of the existence and growth of Christian communities in the Middle East and of Muslim migrant communities in Europe does not exist; Christianity is a vanishing sector in the Middle East. Muslim immigration to Europe is portrayed as a threat that dilutes 'Europeanness', European culture, European customs and European languages, turning the continent, the EU and the single European state into a multicultural society. Neither the Europeans nor the Muslim migrants constitute monolithic entities.
