NBC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel stated that “We’re already seeing the rise of the right wing. We’re already seeing rise of hate attacks, where people will use the kind of terrorist attacks, these kind of incidents, to vilify all of the Muslim community” during NBC’s coverage of the terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium on Tuesday.

Engel said, “The open border system that has been inside Europe has come under a tremendous amount of pressure, for two reasons over the last several months, or about a year. One is the migrant and refugee crisis, as hundreds of thousands of people have been leaving, primarily Iraq and Syria and going — making their way up through Turkey, to Greece, to Macedonia, Serbia, and following that migrant trail into Europe. And the second is because of the terrorist implications, because of the security implications. And where those two meet, is a very sensitive and explosive issue for Europe. We’re already seeing the rise of the right wing. We’re already seeing rise of hate attacks, where people will use the kind of terrorist attacks, these kind of incidents, to vilify all of the Muslim community, which, of course, only makes the situation worse, because then people feel isolated, ostracized, ghettoized, and they retreat into their own communities.”
