Muslims in Europe, Part Four

In the fourth part of a series on Muslims in Europe, NPR's Sylvia Poggioli looks at the Netherlands. Over the last year, the Dutch have realized there is little communication and mutual understanding with their Muslim communities. The country, long a beacon of tolerance, has taken the European lead in a painful debate about integration.
