Are the most secular people from the middle east. I worked with one and a taxi cab driver that had lived in several countries says Canada is the best place to live. I gave him the rest of my spare change(a few bucks). Iranians are the best choice of immigrants from the middle east.

Others are usually engulfed in religious hoopla about recreating a caliphate. I met a Turk in Toronto and I thought he was Greek at first. The Ottoman empire was horrible but so was the holocaust, world war 2 and the cold war. It's all in the past. Live life now. Stop being obsessed with an Islamic state. It won't happen. Muslims need to stop having multiple wives too. It creates poverty and misery for women.
