Europeans beware: Muslims are on the loose again! At least that’s the message being vended by a resurgence of far right populists who have triggered a recent uptick in continent-wide Islamophobia across Europe. In Britain, the University of East Anglia has suddenly decided to shut down an Islamic center used by Muslim students for prayer in June of this year. In Germany, President Joachim Gauck didn’t mince his words when he said that Muslims were more definitively a part of his country than was their religion of Islam. And in Belgium, the right-wing political party, Vlaams Belgan, was apparently so troubled with observant Muslims that they proclaimed a bounty on women caught wearing religious garments in public. “Bag A Burqa,” as some have called it, pays ordinary Belgian citizens 250 Euros to report a veiled woman to the police (That’s 100 Euros more than the fine Muslim women risk paying for violating the ban which was enacted in Belgium, along with France’s, last year).
