Muslim Europeans, Female Bodies, and Performative Politics
This chapter provides a comparative analysis between European and Muslim communities. This comparative analysis shows that Europeans are in the forefront, while the Muslims are regarded as inferior. The inferiority view on Muslims can be seen by how women and homosexuals are treated in Muslim communities. The influential Christian identity in Europe also explains why European countries such as Denmark and Netherlands find it hard to accept Muslim communities in their territorial spaces. This chapter then explores European Muslim communities, particularly those of Muslim youths which include violent Muslim men and veiled young Muslim women, by considering the Muslims’ culture and gender performances.
