Excellent points, Prashant, and I totally agree that unfortunately the migrants are not commonly rejecting or even criticizing Islam. And I'm sure that many see themselves as emigrating to spread the way of Islam, a religious imperative. Yet, so very many people uprooting themselves is a dramatic, if mute testament to deep discontent with life in Muslim countries. The terrible violence in places like Yemen, Syria and Iraq, as well as the horrific human rights violations in Turkey and Iran, just name a few instances, lend credence to the conclusion that many people are fleeing out of fear and loathing and are not missionaries.
