    Is France better off as a result of huge numbers of Muslims migrating there? How about England? How about Germany? How about Sweden? How about the U.S.? Is there a single society that we can look upon and say that they are now better as a result of Muslims emigrating there?

    How many Muslim doctors have emigrated, for instance, to the U.S.? I would believe that to be a benefit, if sufficient numbers have come here.

    Let me guess. You are the scion of a European Christian who migrated to America and was welcomed warmly and given every opportunity. Can you give us an example of how America is better off because you are here?

    I guess the OP should have known better than to expect more than a deflection.

    What did you expect from such an arrogant holier-than-thou post? If the OP can show me how he/she/it has benefitted American society, I'll cite a Muslim....in medicine, technology, entertainment, invention..whatever. The poster projects that he/she/it is better than others simply because he/she/it is not born Muslim.

    The poster is suggesting that Muslim immigration in modern times has not benefited any country, and that the contrary is true. It's not a question about individuals.

    You especially need to watch out for gay, crack-smoking Moslems from Kenya...

    It only takes ONE of them to fuck up an entire country!!!

    Confounding, the individual is as great as the sum. It is easy to grasp a large group that we equivocate into 'them' when in actuality it is a large group of individuals and that is what counts. I'm guessing there is a majority of American Muslims that practice American values as well or better than the OP, but their activities as neighbors and friends and community contributors are never heard of outside their own neighborhoods.

    I'm guessing that's extremely rare based on who they send to Congress.
