Islam is primarily a Third World religion, and Third World birth rates are higher than First World birth rates.

That is the only reason.

No sale...They have just as many kids in prosperous nations, and often more. France has a fertility rate of 1.8, Muslims in France have a fertility rate of 8.1..

I think it's indoctrination, fear and opportunism. Not to mention the total melding of nationalism with religion, a truly scary combination. Israel and Iran will have at each other soon.

Islam is the fastest growing because it has a high birthrate. All the muslims I know have at least 5 kids. That is the norm. My jewish friends have 2. My Christian friends have 2 to 3.

I agree - spawning, and preaching in poor countries to pick up the low hanging fruit.

Yeah high birthrates is key. Although it might have a conversion advantage among societies that embrace polygamy or in poor nations that have strong financial ties to Muslim nations.

So if we could convince 'em to implement a "one terrorist" policy based loosely on China's population control measures we might get a handle on this?
