Damascus, Syria – On Friday, the U.S. President Barack Obama issued a statement saying that Europe needs to do more to better integrate its Muslim communities, and “not simply respond with a hammer”.
“Our major advantage, is that our Muslim populations feel themselves to be Americans,” Obama told a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron.
Obama’s statement comes a week after terrorist attacks hit Paris.
“There are parts of Europe in which that’s not the case. And that’s probably the greatest danger that Europe faces,” The U.S. President said.
“It’s important for Europe not to simply respond with a hammer and law enforcement and military approaches to these problems.”
