muslims come to West for the money

Muslims come to the West because it is wealthy and they seek a better material existence. End of story. The West is materially better off because of a Judeo Christian culture that encourages learning and self improvement and individual pursuit. A small densely populated country like the Netherlands by stint of hard work and smart ideas is richer than Russia which lacks in nothing.These attributes are not unique to the West, look at Japan or China, and increasingly India. But not the Islamic world. The poorest countries in the world - Muslim. The most corrupt countries in the world - Muslim. Not too flash on the old education either. That's why they don't get the nexus between our wealth and stablity and our value systems, it's as if money in the West grew on trees. So the Muslims come to our countries seeking a better life. Fair enough. But then the poor dumb uneducated boobies they don't like what they find. As if we should care what they think. What do they contribute to us other than a large welfare bill?
