Yes, the reports of conversions FROM Islam are rarely reported on, except on CBN.

It would seem that in Africa especially there are numerous people leaving Islam. A sheik on al Jazeera mentioned once he thought that 6 million Muslims every year were converting to Christianity alone. Those numbers seem pretty sensational, but while the Western media likes the one priest and nun who converted to Islam, they are oblivious to the fact that there are groups of sheiks and imams in the Muslim world who convert other sheiks and imams.

Many Muslim refugees also convert as soon as they arrive in the West. I've heard the UK has nearly three or four hundred thousand Islamic apostates, nearly 15,000 Muslims convert to Christianity every year in France, and in Minnesota in the USA, about 14% of Somalis, most of whom are educated, have converted to Christianity.

These are encouraging numbers.

The suffering of Muslims in the West by other Muslims is not well-known nor reported on. In the USA I can say that our problems pale in comparison to that of Europe or Austrailia or even Canada, and that could be saying something. Thousands of people are snuck into this country every year against their will, and on more than one occasion, we've caught Muslim men holding Muslim women as slaves. If something bad happens, it is all over the media regardless of who it is, but we don't depend on Islamic immigration, and quite honestly we can get along fine without it.

Europe and Australia and Canada have special interests. The reason why they put up with Islamic immigrants is because they need the labor force. Why they don't get more immigrants from India, China or Latin America is beyond me, but the media in those places doesn't want to cover the real deal in European cities where Muslims live because what you would find would be a sharia-style control, and there would be pressure from the native EU public to get rid of that, and that of course would mean sending them back home and the EU would lose their economic contribution.

It wouldn't be so bad if the women in the West actually had children, but they don't. There is a unspoken lie floating around that the world is overpopulated in the West. It isn't.
