Analyst: Muslim communities in Europe 'among most contented' of any minority

Fareed speaks with Doug Saunders, an international affairs columnist for 'The Globe and Mail' and the author of 'The Myth of the Muslim Tide: Do Immigrants Threaten the West?' about the question of whether there is widespread anger among Muslims in Europe. Watch the full interview on GPS this Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN.

What about the general idea that these immigrants, that Muslim immigrants in Europe, are angry, that they are angry with the world, angry with the fact that the world isn't of their making, that the West is sort of the dominant power, that there is a kind of rage, a Muslim rage in Europe?

No. We do need to understand that there obviously are some people among that community who are very angry. The people who are committing anti-Semitic attacks and attacks on journalists and acts of terrorism – these are obviously individuals who are motivated by anger.

The question is, does that reflect the community around them? Is that born out of the community around them, or is that something that's imported, that's a foreign value that they've adopted as a political movement?

And what's interesting is that Muslim communities in Europe, despite being marginalized economically and educationally, tend to be among the most contented with their lives of any minority group, often more so than the general population. There's not a measurable level of discontentment with the society around them or with the lives they lead among Muslims in Europe compared to other groups. It simply isn't something that exists in the larger population.

    Fareed,
    Please invite Prof. Charles Kurzman at UNC Chapel Hill. His book, The Missing Martyrs is an eye opener. Perhaps a debate with Dr. Ramadan at Oxford. It is time for a counterintuitive perspective.

    I think most Muslims living in Europe are happy and productive. However, the small percentage that is unhappy for whatever reason should vacate Europe. Never to return.

    Mr. SAnders is WRONG I lived in Europe – we all know the know about the the NOGO zones and the police timidity to intervene :remember tMuslims do 98% of the terrorism- When and if if ANY European country has a real 10% Muslin populace – we will see a state of desperation for teh West- remember -they usually bear great antipathy for Jews and Christians Fareerd I am ashamed of you for this piece.. I hold you to a far higher journalistic standard than this woerfully transparent piiece .

    CALIPHATE ON THE MISSISIPPI ; As a Minneapolis MN native – I can tell you about Cedar Riverside – in Minneapolis a formerly hippie /studnent neighborhood now this a Somali/ Muslim enclave- yes- a NOGO zone ; as a reminder t Minneapolis was the 911 incubator – I can TELL you that the Cedar -River side area is 90 % Moslem -with their own grocersis – Islamic sign – no English usually displayed . Mosques where they rejoice and reiterate thier hate for Jews and Christians – and they marvel at the Food Stamps – subsuzuded rent and free meedical services we give them- we PAY them to plot against us a- and ew call this a foreign policy- I call it being a traitor to the USA.

    TERRORISM: THE PERFECT STORM

    Like a totem pole, the hinddoou world in India is ladder like and incremental, essentially defined by a caste system. You suppress the underprivileged and seek satisfaction from the pain and suffering you cause. It is nirvana and brings you closer to being in the good books of deities. Very much as taught by Mahabharata

    Coupling the foregoing with prevailing conditions in Indian Occupied Kashmir and massacre in Gujarat personifies the centrifugal forces of terror permeating to the neighboring countries onto Middle East and onto EU and USA.

    Terrorism, IEDs, self immolation and suicide belt technology was invented by Indian hinddoous in Sri Lanka. They trained Tamils as suicide bombers and terrorists. They were marketed as Tamil Tigers. The terrorism lasted 35 years. Hundreds of thousands were killed as a result. The hate towards India was so much in Sri Lanka that Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was slapped by a Sri Lankan soldier during an official visit. He was later blown up to smithereens by a hindoo suicide bomber in India.

    Mr. Saunder's overall numbers are correct. The Guardian published these some time ago. However, it is also true that in some cities, Bradford and Birmingham specifically, the Muslim populations are over 20%. When these are concentrated in small areas we have ghettos rather than multiculturalism. Much of the U.K. has almost no Muslim immigrants. Averages can be very misleading.

    I am an American who lived for many years in Germany. Germany is full of " auslander feindlichkeit" which roughly translates to "hatred for foreigners." Unlike here in the U.S., almost all official positions are filled by Germans (workers at train stations, postal workers, police officers, etc.) Most foreigners (myself as an American ..of German descent no less) are not treated well by the German controlled state. And Germans blame most of their problems on these "auslanders." It is very different here. I loved Germany, its castles, food, its well run government, but not the Germans.

    Mr. Sanders is really WRONG I lived in Europe for 9 years , we all know the know about the NO GO zones and also most of the terrorist attacks remember from Muslim groups . muslims usually bear great hate for Jews and Christians I am really surprise to see you bringing Mr Sanders without bringing an opposing commentary to keep the balance.
    Also I could name you at least over a dozen of hotel by name and address with a prayer room for Muslims inside the their premisses. I hold you to a far higher journalistic standard than this woefully segment.

    Journalism standards require that in an article about the rising influence of the Muslim population in Europe FZ should disclose that he is a Muslim.
    To be more objective it would be helpful to present opposing opinions.
    Sanders presented his opinions as fact – no data to back up his views.

        Now, after US troops already infested with AIDS invaded and occupied Afghanistan, AIDS rates in Afghanistan now rival tose found in other countries the US military has invaded and occupied. Like occupied Israel, with Jews now reporting AIDS rates matching Saudi Arabia's where US men have been spreading it for a long time now.

    Mr. and Mrs. Banasy have lied to their own daughters. And told them that condoms prevent the spread of HIV. And so their daughters think as long as the black man about to butt wrangle them is wearing a condom everything is right with The Lord. A proven lie. Yet, Dogna insists on it being just so.
