Europe with or without Muslims?

In current political discussions we can see a growing interest in the Muslim populations of Europe. In almost every Member State in the European Union, populist parties are today voicing strong opinions about Islam, Muslims and the multicultural society. But how shall we understand and contextualise the debate about Islam and Muslims in Europe and how shall we analyse narratives that describes Europe as a continent without Muslims or a continent that is built on a multicultural fabric?
