Response to Cardinal Scola’s House of Lords Speech

This text published today serves as a response to Cardinal Angelo Scola in his speech at the House of Lords, by offering his frank reflections on the presence of Muslims in Europe. This was addressed positively as a factor that contributed to the construction of a ‘good life’ for all communities, on the one hand, whilst on the other, stated negatively that the mere presence of Muslims in Europe constituted a potentially inassimilable problem and a challenge to the status quo.
