Why European women are turning to Islam

I’m not one of these Muslims who measure Muslim "success" or Islam’s validity by conversion rates, but I found this article enlightening: "Why European women are turning to Islam" by Peter Ford.

The death of Muriel Degauque, a Belgian convert who blew herself up in a suicide attack on US troops in Iraq last month, has drawn fresh attention to the rising number of Islamic converts in Europe, most of them women.

This subject is close to my heart, as my mother was a European convert, albeit from very different times.  She converted in 1970 (on her own, before meeting my father, an American who converted in 1957) in Copenhagen. 

It’s tragic that this phenomenon is automtically viewed through the prism of security and terrorism, rather than religion and psychology.
