Author: Doug Saunders, The Myth of the Muslim Tide

Doug Saunders is an award-winning author and the European bureau chief for the Globe and Mail.
His latest book is called "The Myth of the Muslim Tide," and it's based on the idea that Muslim immigrants are not willing to integrate with western culture.
"It's an idea that Muslim immigrants are different, that they are reproducing at an exponential pace, that their religion is more of an ideology of conquest, that they're not going to integrate that, they don't want to integrate," said Saunders.
"I don't think the people who are buying this, who are buying books saying this, are themselves racists or bigots or anything like that.
"A lot of people are like me who saw their neighbours with head scarves and beards and saw the headlines about Islamic terrorism and wondered if there's a connection," said Saunders.
