The winter 2007 edition of inFOCUS takes a close look at radical Islam in Europe. Lorenzo Vidino describes the tripartite threat of radical Islam in Europe; terrorist attacks are but one threat. Daniel Pipes’ “Europe’s Future,” gives several scenarios for the future of Islam in Europe.

Fear of radical Islam is spreading among Europeans. According to a recent poll, as noted in the Daily Express (UK), an”overwhelming majority” of Europeans believe immigration from Islamic countries is a threat to their traditional way of life.
