    There are lots of good, honest and hardworking Muslims that don't deserve to be associated with people that are less so. The OP is asking you to look at it from the big picture though. Yes, some individuals are adding to these societies, but the OP would like a big picture answer on whether or not Muslim, or probably more accurately, whether or not Middle Eastern immigration has benefited any nation in modern times. I'd say from a completely practical position the answer is no. My argument to the OP would be that this needs to be more than just a practical argument though. There is an empathetic and human part of the argument that matters too. What is the right thing to do? What would Jesus do? There are good but desperate people that are suffering. Do we ignore their plight because some are bad and overall their immigration doesn't benefit us economically? Or do we overlook that because it's the right thing to do? This is a complicated and nuanced problem.

    From the European settlers you have infrastructure, lights, and telephones and much more, so yeah the European settlers to this country brought a lot beside disease and genocide...

    Same could be said about the Moors invasion of Europe during the dark ages help countries like Spain.

    In today time many Muslims live across America working in Engineering to Medical services and contribute daily to our society while living peacefully amongst the Judeo Christian society of America.

    Yes, from time to time a rise of radical occur but it has been a few years now since the last real nutter rose up.

    So how have Muslims help today society?

    From the taxes to they pay in while working many high earning professions to running local gas stations to running local markets they contribute a good amount.

    I take it that you don't want to answer any of my questions in the OP. Undoubtedly, you don't like the answers. Thanks for making my point.

    ""Yes, some individuals are adding to these societies, but the OP would like a big picture answer on whether or not Muslim, or probably more accurately, whether or not Middle Eastern immigration has benefited any nation in modern times.""
    Can we Start with Danny Thomas and family as individuals adding to society?

    As for 'big picture', don't you resent being accused because you are part of some group, either ethnic, or by religion or by common cause or by skin color or by nationality? When Truman OK'd dropping a couple of atomic bombs on Japan, it wasn't Truman, it was America. When Trump betrayed the Kurds, it was America...you and me. And yet all of us want to be judged as individuals while putting our enemies in a box. Hence my question of what outstanding feat has the OP done that is greater than any Muslim or Middle Easterner such as the Thomas clan for example?

    ""surely you jest? the Europeans built America[/QUOTE]""
    Europeans 'supervised' building America, but in a large part of this nation, including the White House, unpaid blacks built America..and everything south of the Mason Dixon line. Something along the line of..'those who can do, those who can't teach'.
    I am reminded of that theme by Lord Byron (I think it was him) when he talked of a society that forces a man to be a bootblack, then puts him down because of his occupation.
