The Monitor's View Shaping Europe's reaction to terror

German leaders and protesters counter anti-Islam hate groups with an embrace of tolerance. One Berlin project even plans a joint house of prayer for Christians, Muslims, and Jews.



In the wake of the killings in Paris at the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, all eyes were on France to see if anti-Islam protests would break out. Instead, some 25,000 people gathered in Germany Jan. 12, led by a group called Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West. The protests have continued, but are smaller in number.
