Abdelkader Benali

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:10 pm on 3 February 2015

The attacks on the offices of French Magazine Charlie Hebdo have highlighted the anger and alienation felt by some young Muslims in Europe. Moroccan-Dutch novelist Abdelkader Benali knows what it's like to feel isolated, different, unaccepted. He grew up in Rotterdam in the late 1980s. He says there is a lack of courage to embrace the Muslims of Europe as genuinely European - as citizens like everyone else. He's written about the issues facing Muslims in Europe for the New York Times.
