The encounter between Muslims and the West has never been easy. The present encounter is proving even more difficult than previous confrontations between Europe and its Muslim migrants and refugees. Many of the issues that have detrimental effects on the European-Muslim encounter do not present themselves in relations between Europe and its Jewish minorities. The irony of Islamophobia is that it makes it easy for Muslim minorities to remain culturally and religiously Muslim, just as state- and church-driven anti-Semitism has done for the Jews of Europe. The forms of anti-Semitism witnessed among European Muslims elicit complex cultural, religious and political explanations. Despite Muslim-inspired terrorism and extremist violence across Europe, Bin-Nun bases his findings and conclusions regarding the influx of migrants on his French experience, and identifies it as a touchstone for Western Europe.
