Islam and Europe Crisis
Within hours of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, The Economist posted a chart titled "Islam in Europe" and cited the perception of Islam in European nations, terrorism arrests and the percentage of Muslim populations in European nations. But there's more to this than charts. There is long, violent history, as pointed out by George Friedman, our March 17 Focus on Intelligence Series speaker and founder of the global intelligence firm Stratfor. His topic will be his book (available on January 27), Flash Points: The Emerging Crisis in Europe. In a column he published on the Stratfor website on Tuesday, Friedman, reacting to the Charlie Hebdo attack, takes a carefully researched look at a violent conflict between Europe and Islam that has lasted for centuries
