Haunted presents: Europeans, Muslim immigrants, and the onus of European Jewish histories is an in-depth analysis of the interrelations between Muslim minority immigrants and local European communities with an accent on Jewish communities and Judaism. The triangular investigation in this work is largely based on media reporting and comment between the years 2005-15. From this basis a solid, informative background to the explosive mass Muslim immigration to Europe and the terror, conflict, racism, religious, social and political clashes of today is framed. No other scholarly work, yet one written in an empirical, attainable style, succeeds in presenting a more comprehensive, coherent and cohesive overview of the elements behind the headline-making news emerging from the tumultuous state which is Europe today.


1. Hectic times: Europe and its Muslim minorities
2. European realities: aspects of the 'triangular' relations between Europeans, Muslims and Jews
3. Haunted presents: the Holocaust as a yardstick
4. In the same boat: European opposition, Muslim migrants, impact on Jews
5. East meets the West: Fiqh al-Aqalliyat (Muslim jurisprudence on minorities); Dina de-Malchuta Dina (the law of the kingdom is the law); Dar al-Islam (abode of Islam); Dar al-Harb (abode of war)
6. A triangle in crisis: violence, aggression, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic phenomena
7. Conclusion: brighter European-Muslim-Jewish futures?
