Over the last few decades a number of European countries have been experiencing an increasing amount of Muslim immigrants, furthermore, Europe&#39;s Muslim population is expected to grow steadily in the near future, and the greatest increases are expected to occur in the United Kingdom, France, and Gemany.</span></font></font></font></font></font></p><p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-right: -0in; text-indent: 0.59in; margin-bottom: 0.22in; line-height: 150%">A growing number of Muslim minorities contributes to the contradictions between the conservative values of Islam and traditionally secular European liberalism.&nbsp;This paper summarizes the diverse aspects of Muslim communities and the issues they confront in various European countries taking into account the distinctions in policies of European governments towards Muslim populations. This paper then focuses on the transformation of concerns and values of Muslim communities into fundamentalist direction on the one hand, and Islamophobia that has pierced European societies during the first decade of the 20th century - on the other hand. Eventually, on the basis of the study relevant predictions of &nbsp;the future development of Europe are suggested, taking into account rapidly changing ethnic and cultural composition of European population and conversion of Muslim communities into new large segment of European society.&nbsp;</p>
