<p>Appearing on a special extended edition of NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> on Tuesday, Daily Beast world news editor Christopher Dickey fretted that &ldquo;rampant Islamophobia&rdquo; in Europe would intensify following the terrorist attacks in Belgium.</p>

<p>Talking to co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer early in the 11 a.m. ET hour, Dickey warned: <strong>&ldquo;It&#39;s a huge political issue because there already was rampant Islamophobia in this part of the world. And now, you have a situation where people who were not inclined to look suspiciously at Arabs and Muslims, now they&#39;re terrified.&rdquo;</strong></p>
