Abstract

Fifteen years after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, non-Muslim Britons are more concerned than ever about the attitudes and behaviours of their Muslim co-nationals. In late 2015, around half of the non-Muslims in Britain regarded Islam as incompatible with Western values, and Muslims as harbouring disrespect for their fellow Britons. Polling before and after the atrocities in Paris in November 2015 suggest that this attack caused little in the way of worsening attitudes: it is possible that a critical mass of anti-Muslim sentiment has been approached.
