The distance between Europe and the Muslim world is becoming increasingly shorter. There are already large cities in Europe which will have a Muslim majority within five to seven years.

In Marseilles, the second largest city in France, Muslims already make up 30-40% of the population. In 2016, the city will inaugurate a huge mosque with a 25-meter minaret and a prayer hall for 14,000 worshippers. The percentage of Muslims in France is already 13%.

In Barcelona, Spain, 30% of residents are Muslim. In smaller Spanish towns like Salt, 40% are Muslim.

In Brussels, Belgium, the capital of the EU, 25-30% are Muslim.

In Malmo, Sweden, 25-30% are Muslim, while in the capital of Stockholm, 20% are Muslim.

In Rotterdam and Amsterdam in The Netherlands, 25% are Muslim.
