Hi Conormel

Very interesting.

However most Muslims are very glad, at least here in the US, to leave the old country behind for many reasons be it economic or political reasons or blatant discrimination in the old country or because of issues that pertains to gender and sexual orientation. Then the same Muslims discover that the streets aren't paved with gold and hard work and lack of jobs are for real. This is when many turn to religion to provide the comfort that they seem to need

And most Muslims have to clue about what is in the Qur'an or in their medieval texts and all they care about is to make it in the new country

We know from the history of immigration that many first generation immigrants, but for sure not all, go back to where they came from or even are buried where they were born

Oh the second and third generation? I suspect that in the case of the US they will blend in very well

What should we do in the meantime? We stick to our constitution and freedom of speech, equality of men and women, the rejection of any so called divine law and that all citizens are equal in a court of law and we should stick to our man made laws even if flawed at times and if one does it like then good riddance

Democracy is never perfect but it beats Islam and for sure no to millet system ,
