Muslims are not 'leaving' Islam. Yes, there are some apostates and secular Muslims, just like there are many more former Christians and atheist Jews. There are fewer religious Jews today than in 1900 (look up the numbers).

Get your facts straight -- Islam is a not 'dying' in any shape, way, or form. It's growing rapidly (due to high birth rate in Muslim countries). Only someone who has no clue what he is blabbing about would claim Islam is 'dying.' There are more practicing Muslims in the world than practicing Christians (most so-called 'Christians' have never been to a church).
