Europe's fear of Islam (Part 2)

As the German president touches down in Turkey this evening for a 5-day visit, the stakes are clear. 3-and-a-half million Turks or people of Turkish origin live in Germany and Berlin is Ankara's top trade partner.

Is Merkel stoking xenophobia, and more precisely "Islamophobia"?
