Why do Muslims gravitate to the Western World?

Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment: Christianity in the Holy Quran

Submitted by Sam (United States), Jan 16, 2015 at 11:15

Why would Susan, or any Muslim, choose to live in a country where they are hated (her words) by the majority of the population?

Could it be that the American Culture offers an opportunity for a better life than they would have in a Muslim country? If so, why does the Muslim who migrates to the West choose to hang-on to the culture that deprived them in their previous homeland?

If Muslims ruled the world would many of them long for the lost opportunity to migrate to a place that offers the opportunity for a better life?

Think about it.
