Alarm at EU call for ‘European Islam’

Franco Frattini, the Vice President of the European Commission, has been castigated for making racist and Islamophobic remarks about Muslims, while creating alarm by suggesting that the EU wants to impose its own interpretation of Islam.

“Talks about creating a ‘European Islam’ not only indicates that the EU is planning to impose their own version of Islam on Muslims but will create more anti-Western and anti-Christian feeling in the Muslim community,” said Ahmed Versi, Editor of The Muslim News.
