Our topic for today is the most racist Islamophobic Europian countries towards muslims. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. Well, it’s a very sensitive question nowadays. The history of Islamophobia in Europe is a long one, and that cannot be neglected, but the issue was mostly provoked by two very crucial events. The first is definitely 9/11, that shook the whole world and marked the beginning of the new history of the world, while the second occurred in France in 2015. As you may suppose, I talk about Charlie Hebdo shooting, after which nothing was the same for Muslims in Europe.
Additional attacks throughout various European countries only contributed to the fact that Islamophobia is on the rise in Europe, but we should not act numb and pretend that there are not some other things outside this continent that contributed to this since there are many.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the most racist Islamophobic Europian countries towards muslims from their list.
The first country is The United Kingdom. In the UK, 47% of the whole number of people who participated in the survey agreed that they don’t want Muslims to inhabit their country anymore. There are many things that provoked such a narrative, and one of them is definitely the London Bridge attack that occurred in June this year. The second country is Italy. Besides being beautiful and breathtaking, Italy is also a little bit Islamophobic, and 51% of the respondents, in this case, would reject Muslim immigration to this country, making it one of the most racist Islamophobic European countries towards Muslims. However, Italy did not have any unpleasant situations or attacks in the past, and the Guardian gives an amazing analysis on that issue. At last, but not least we should speak about Germany. 53% of the people who responded in Germany agreed that they would not like more Muslims in their country, and that being more than a half is a little bit worrying. However, that can be provoked by the events throughout the Europe, as well as the horrible event from December 2016, when a truck was deliberately driven into the Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people.
