The Myth of
the Muslim Tide:
Do Immigrants
Threaten the West?
with Doug Saunders

Hosted by CBC’s Adrian Harewood
"Using an exhaustive supply of numbers, trends and comparative history in a slim book, Saunders makes a strong case for his arguments, which are meant to challenge those alarmists who think Islam will eventually dominate Europe and North America.

Doug Saunders, European Bureau Chief of The Globe and Mail and Donner Prize-winning author, believes it’s time to debunk the myth that immigrants from Muslim countries are wildly different and pose a threat to the West. Drawing on voluminous demographic, statistical, scholarly and historical documentation, Saunders examines the real lives and circumstances of Muslim immigrants in the West: their politics, their beliefs, their observances and their degrees of assimilation. In the process he shatters the core claims that have built a murderous ideology and draws haunting historical parallels showing how the same myths stuck to earlier groups, such as Jews and Roman Catholics. Join us for an examination of the culture wars that threaten to dominate North American and European elections and media discussions.
