With all the focus on the Middle East and South Asia, little attention is paid to Muslims in Europe. Professor Zachary Shore argues Europe will increasingly become the incubation ground for breeding new Bin Ladens. Shore asserts that "No one is born a terrorist; terrorists are bred" and that therefore it is imperative to understand the thoughts and feelings of Europe's younger Muslims, most of whom would never commit violence. He gives voice to people of deep faith who speak of the conflict between their desire to integrate and their repulsion toward some of what the West represents.
