Could Muslims themselves in big numbers not realise their chance of winning in the West is remote and change?

Reader comment on item: Islam vs. Islamism (article)

Submitted by Demolan (Netherlands), May 14, 2013 at 22:48

If we consider that there is strong opposition, hate, a huge threat even, coming from many Muslims towards the West, I want us also to consider what the role is of

A. All those, often ignorant, political correct Westerners, leftists often. And

B. that of the big Asiatic and other "neutral" countries that do not have substantial Muslim minorities and immigration.

The role of political correct people in the West is that they will not let us, counter-jihadists, win, or admit that we are right, but they will also probably not allow Muslims to take substantial total power in the West when they try this too obviously. And it is my hope that Muslims in large numbers will get to understand deeply that their chances of taking over the West are remote. And getting lower, rather than higher.

The role of the big Asiatic countries I see as providing countries to compare with the Western ones. The Western countries generously invited Muslims to immigrate, the Asiatic countries did not (or not much).

Now Muslims can ask themselves: Why are we in violent opposition to the West, when the Westerners took us in in big numbers, and not so much against the Asiatic countries, who refused to take Muslims in, or were not as attractive to Muslims in the first place? And

Are we really going to disadvantage the Western nations up to the point that the Asiatic countries can sneer to the West; " We told you so; Do not take in Muslims, you will regret it", "now you see the dismal results of that huge Muslim immigration in your countries."

"because without massive Muslim immigration WE will be more homogenous and rich and successful than you with it."

Is this something (all, or most) Muslims will let happen by being warlike and non-supportive, unfriendly towards the Western Nations? When they also realize their chance of winning, taking over in the West are very remote?

More and more Muslims better reason: If we cannot beat them (us Westerners), we better join them. By adapting to modern times and compromising with the necessary more symbolic interpretation of Islam.
