Islamophobia increased with the attacks of September 11, 2001 and became the center of foreign policy of Western states. Since then, Muslims in Western countries has been discriminated even if they are citizens of that country. Migrants and Muslim refugees have been targeted, excluded and marginalized in the Western world, particularly in the United States. Due to the Western policy on Islamophobia, intolerant, racist and nationalist far-right parties have emerged and gained wider in Europe. If this situation continues like this, the peace of the world will be in danger and the thesis of the clash of civilizations of Huntington will be justified.
