2010 started and ended with terror attacks in Denmark, both related to the Danish Mohammed cartoons. I wish us all a happy and quieter 2011.
I've considered how to best present an overview of the past year. Like every other year, it's been very eventful. I don't have the time and patience to sit and summarize the year.. though two issues come to mind: the French National Assembly approving a ban on burqas and the first ever suicide bombing in Sweden.
One (easy) way of looking at the year, is to look at the top posts of every month:
Paris: Girl beaten for chatting on MSN
Norway: Allah will decide if it's peaceful
Netherlands: Mosque smeared with blood
Sweden: Muslim community fears violence after attack on elderly couple
