The economy is bad in Detroit, so maybe some of them leave it and come to other cities ?

Dearborn Michigan as a lot... So does Paterson New Jersey.

Also, NYC has a lot of Muslims, and parts of Dallas, Los Angeles, and Detroit.

Interesting numbers, not so surprising for LA ! Detroit is smaller s it's more impressive.
But these numbers are old (2000), many changed since this year, immigration from muslim countries increased (Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Morocco..)

Those numbers are completely bogus. I'm not sure what the source data is, but it is estimated that there 600K Muslims in NYC proper alone - let alone the metro area.

LA I think did receive many Iranian immigrants and although at least some of them were Iranian Jews I think Iran is pretty overwhelmingly Muslim.

The reason I thought Dearborn is they look to still have large numbers born in the Mideast. The majority of Arab-Americans born here are Christian, I think it might even be a high majority, but I believe in the last 10-20 years those coming from the Mideast have switched and become majority Muslim. Now there are some Iraqi Christians coming to the US, granted they deem themselves Assyrian and not Arab, but it looks like they're more in Oak Park. Granted that's also in the Detroit metro. (For various reasons Iraqi Christians are going more to Sweden than the US, or at least I think I read that.)
