Answers 1-6 and #8 are just the countries in Europe closest to Turkey. They all had territory that was part of the Ottoman Empire. The only reason that Greece isn't on the list is because of the population exchanges that took place after Greek nationalists succeeding in breaking away from the empire.

Answers 7 and 9-11 are here because of immigration. #7 mostly because of large numbers of immigrants from their former empire in North Africa, 9-11 because they are countries with small populations that receive a disproportionate number of Muslim immigrants.

Nah. The population exchange happened after the Greco-Turkish War which was after WW1, 100 years after Greece's independence. The exchange was pretty unfair though. It was like 1.5m Greeks/Christians to 0.5 Turks/Muslims.

So did the population exchange take place before or after Greek independence?

The answers have changed but the quiz is still easy. Now the first seven are all countries that are close to Turkey that have territory that used to be Ottoman-controlled, and the last three are countries that have received a disproportionately high amount of Muslim immigration.

In Russia it varies widely depending on methodology. Some people count simply "traditionally Muslim ethnicities", on the other hand there were some detailed researches asking also about practising a religion and including categories such as spiritual but not religious, religious but not organized (belonging to any church) etc.

Is the 10-17% for Russia in the European part of Russia only, or in Russia as a whole? Funny that Russia, as a transcontinental country counts, but Turkey does not.

The argument for this is that most of Russian population is in Europe and most of Turkish population is in Asia.

Austria and Sweden surprised me. Is it because they're "safer" countries with a lower crime rate for migrants? Surprised UK didn't make the list - Probably because our population is already high

Jul 31, 2019
I think the UK is around 4%. It is probably related to the already high population and possibly the reluctance to take in immigrants.

Yeah, large communities in London. But also here in Northern England, towns like Bolton, Blackburn, Oldham, Preston, Bradford, Leeds.. And then big cities like Manchester and Birmingham have many Muslim communities, so thought that rate might have been higher, but I guess as it is a percentage it could be as there's so many people in the UK to start with.

The Balkans, except some country (for example Serbia), are correct answers. It isn't a big surprise, if you know that, these countries were part of the Ottoman Empire. The other muslim countries are well-know imigration countries. Russia is interesting. The chechens and tatars are muslims, maybe because the islamic world has big impact on these territories. I'm curious about your opinion in this topic.

The parts of Russia that are majority-Muslim were also part of the Ottoman Empire, or else inhabited by other Muslim Turkic or central Asian people. Look at a map. You'll see Russia is closer to Turkey than Bosnia is.

If France was so worried about this they might have wanted to consider it before colonizing much of North Africa. Austria and Sweden are nice places to live with relatively low populations that receive a disproportionately high number of immigrants. In each of these three cases the present number of Muslims in the country I think points toward some success the country enjoyed in the present or recent past. Each new generation faces new challenges. If these societies are strong they will continue to thrive in the future.

People from Islamic countries do not share the values the majority of Europeans share. In my opinion, all religions are a barrier to progress, and Islam is currently the largest barrier to progress. I cannot see continued levels of Islamic immigration to Europe ending well. Part of the problem I think is that Muslims tend to stick together in their host country, they stick to their culture and this is definitely a problem.
