    David Frum, "Competing Visions of Islam Will Shape Europe in the 21st Century"

    The Atlantic - 2 May 2018

    This is an enlightening interview with Akbar Ahmed (the author of “Journey into Europe”). The former Pakistani civil servant turned academic explains how migration is reshaping Europe and wonders and whether leaders can cope.

Mody essentially argues that the political divide in Europe may now be hard to heal without a major shift in focus back to national priorities (reads in 6-7 min).

The difference between those entering the UK and those leaving it fell by nearly a quarter, from 327,000 last year to 246,000 this year. The UK has yet to leave the EU, but some Europeans have started leaving the UK. This is a worrisome development that will adversely impact the British economy (reads in 5-7 min).
