Overlooked reason to oppose Islamic migration

Something that always seems to be overlooked by those who are apologists for and appeasers of Islam came to mind during a conversation I had with someone on the issue recently. He was a believer in the oft-peddled delusion that "only about 10-15% of Muslims are violent". He believed we should allow Muslims to migrate outside of Islamic countries. He could not be more deluded.
First, we need to look at the reproduction rates of Muslims compared to the reproduction rates of the countries they are invading via mass migration. All of these countries are in danger of becoming predominantly Muslim.
Now, let us for sake of argument agree with the absolutely false and delusional view that "only 10-15% of Muslims are violent". That would mean that 85%-90% of Muslims in Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, the so-called Palestinian Territories, Syria, Sudan, etc are "peaceful". And yet look at how those countries are run. The so-called Palestinians voted in a terrorist group (Hamas) to lead them, and they live in squalor and poverty. Look at the genocide in Sudan committed by Muslims, the atrocities, the rapes. Look at the religious intolerance and hate preaching coming out of Saudi Arabia. Look at the Muslims in Israel, obsessed with suicide bombings and the cold blooded and cowardly murder of innocent people.
Everywhere Muslims become a majority, the truth of Islam, the violent and barbaric tendencies, are brought out for the world to see. Where is the exception to this? For this very reason, we cannot under any circumstances, allow a significant presence of Muslims in America. Preferably, the cult of death should be banned.
Here is another challenge that will go unanswered, although I would also like to extend this one to Dr. Pipes since he's inclined to actually answer posts. If Islam is such a peaceful religion, if 85-90% of Muslims are not fanatical extremists, then why is it that every Muslim-dominated society is rampant with rape, intolerance, suppression of freedoms, fanaticism, barbarity, and atrocities? How can a society where 9 out of 10 people are supposedly good-hearted, peace-loving people be so barbaric, corrupt, intolerant, and diabolical?
It would seem to me that reality disproves the contention that only 10-15% of Muslims are violent.
In any case, that's a perfect reason to eliminate Islam in America. Whether it's because far more Muslims are violent than commonly claimed or because the majority are too cowardly to stand up to the radicals, we have seen over and over again what happens in every instance where Muslims become the dominant population, and that would mean the end of America as we know it.

Daniel Pipes replies:
I came up with that 10-15% figure, but it refers to Islamists, not to violent Muslims. Your analysis is, therefore, based on a wrong pemise.
That small percentage dominates because it is organized, funded, and purposeful - like communists in an earlier age.
