The Daily Beast’s World News Editor Christopher Dickey argued that the terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium are “going to make it more and more difficult for Muslims and Arabs to integrate into European society” during NBC’s coverage of the attacks on Tuesday.
Dickey said the attack “certainly is going to make it more and more difficult for Muslims and Arabs to integrate into European society. The level of suspicion is very high, and that translates into xenophobic politics. The kind of thing we see with Geert Wilders in the Netherlands, or Marine Le Pen in France, or the really, really fascist Nazi parties in Germany — not in Germany, but in Greece. So, I think all of that translates into a situation of more and more of a cultural divide, harder and harder to integrate people, and then that, of course, will be used for more recruiting by the jihadists.”
