Myth,views are okay-but evidence trumps subjective opinions. Since 1970,Europe has been innundated by essentially unrestricted Muslim/Islamic immigration. This hasn't been simply the nefarious effects of boogyman big business. For whatever function massive Islamic immigration has served-it sure hasn't worked. Most of western Europe supports these people via public welfare at a massive cost-with no apparent gratitude or loyalty from those served. I don't claim to be an economist,but doing even the basic math, Europe has come up dramatically short.
