This statement the Islam is growing in the west has to be viewed in the correct context. It's not statistically correct to say this, as it's not by conversion to Islam that the number of Mohammedans are increasing in the Western countries, its by their breeding at a fast rate.

Per recent statistics, the birth rate in the western countries including the US, for Mohammedan families is over 4.8 children per family, whereas for the 'others' the birth rate is less than 1.2 children per family. Also, hordes of Mohammedans are creeping into the western countries legally and illegally, for instance see the stats of the Asylum seekers; 98% are Mohammedans. Immigrant families are allowed to bring in their close relatives, that too adds to the numbers.

In a recent survey they found that many criminal elements who are failures in society and are incarcerated become Mohammedans. Its the prison population mainly people of African descent and then the odd uninformed (stupid )women who marry Mohammedans without any idea what they are getting into - if you go to sites like< faith freedom.com> you will see many of them leave once they come to know what Islam is all about. So its incorrect to say that " by conversion the number of Mohammedans are increasing in the West" .
