ABSTRACT
In this article the author addresses suggested concerns of many Americans and Europeans that Muslims will comprise forty percent of the population of Europe by 2025. He suggests that unwarranted prejudices toward Islam breed fear that this would promote increased terrorism and anti-Americanism. He discusses the divergent attitudes between Islamic sects, including Sunnis and Shiites, and points to overestimated birth rates and disregard of immigration laws as inflating population predictions.
