It is mainly about reducing immigration of muslims.

No doubt that's part of what's moving Europe to the right.  Look at the UK with it's UKIP Party really kicking butt.  Part of it has to be related to worries over the EU and government spending with no regard for income.  Perhaps EC will weigh in.
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

It's not just about Muslims, though they are indeed a part of it - in France a particularly large part of it. It is about dilution of national identity. Don't forget, with a few minor fluctuations, the countries in Europe have been in existence and fighting each other for centuries. The only modern European country younger than the USA is Italy, which was made up by combining the Kingdom of Naples, the Vatican States, the Veneto and half of Savoy under the reign of the Duke of Savoy back in the mid 1800s.

We don't trust each other in the slightest but we are used to each other, if that makes sense, and national pride and identity is a big part of life here.

I will venture it is mostly about muslims. France, Sweden, Holland, the UK, Italy, Germany have many citizens that are displeased about the influx of muslims, and their bad behavior.

Malmo is not overrun by Czechs. The police aren't fearful in Malmo because of any factor, but unruly muslims in their midst.
