Interesting fact and figures on the muslim population in European Countires

MAP (http://msnbc.msn.com/id/12757599/)

All of you should check this out..., it's interesting but I question some of the figures, like only 4 Percent of the Population in the UK are Muslims, that's hard to believe considering I see them everywhere, maybe it's just where I live...

Is there a map "Christians in Asia"? Would have similar significance.

Since the Middle Ages and before that Europe has Islamic people ! Portugal has a utterly rich Islamic culture,and,nowadays,of course we have portuguese people who prefer this religion,the same way we have Catholics,Protestants,Jewish,etc!

Sincerly,I do not understand the reason of this thread.Religion does not build fanatics;those who are like that would be fanatics of any other thing!

I think people were concerned about your motives for posting this, nobody thinks you have no right to.


it's the way you phrase your post. 'All of you should check this out' thats like we need to prepare for a storm or something. And when you say 'I see them everywhere', how do you see muslims? Do you mean you see people with brown skin everywhere?

Well, I found the link very interesting. Providing information for the sake of knowledge is a good thing, so my thanks to the poster for the link.

As far as accusing people of racism - I'm half English and half Mexican. I've seen racism on both sides and been on the receiving end of it from "fellow" Mexicans due to my light skin tone. In my opinion, too many people use the words "racist" or "racism" too liberally and without reserve, often applying it to things which are nothing of the sort. If you're going to accuse someone of such, you should prove it beyond the shadow of a doubt, otherwise the meaning of the word becomes useless.
