The Paris attack on Saturday night threatens the Europe's culturally liberal way of life. The Schengen system designed to facilitate the free movement across the borders, now could be the cause of the transfer of weapons and jihadist fighters in continental Europe. In the last few months some European countries have re-introduced some form of border controls to regulate the flow of migrants, trying to maintain a multi-cultural vision. Today, the risk is that this event could fuel extremist views against Muslims and a corresponding increase of Islamic fighters, while the European leaders know that the problem is not really tied to Islam.
