This chapter compares the variety of relationships between Islamic communities in Europe and in the United States. In particular, it displays the variety of forms that the ‘establishment’ of religion in European countries takes, tracks the ‘secularization’ of Islamic organizations, observes the emerging public face of American Islam, and argues that the presence of Muslims in the West has weakened secularist ideology and contributed to the decline of the Modernist narrative.

Keywords:   establishment of religion, Europe, Islam, modernist narrative, secularization, secularism, United States
