Counter-Terror Expert: Europe Faces Muslim Uprising


Executive Director Boaz Ganor of the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) warned, Monday, that Europe faces a Muslim uprising similar to the ones that have carried the name intifada in Israel since the late 1980s. Speaking in the framework of the Van Leer Institute of Jerusalem's Concern for the Future of Society project, Dr. Ganor said the second generation of Muslim immigrants to Europe don't remember the characteristics of their parents' life in the countries they left, are not thankful for the new citizenship their parents received and feel alienated, discriminated against, and second class citizens in their countries.

Ganor said Iran represents the biggest threat to Israel. He noted that Iraq and Syria are not in the proper situation for war with the Jewish state and there is cooperation between Israel and Egypt, which has been affected by internal strife.
