This is something I have pondered over the past couple of days. This is a question I want to ask simply to better understand, it is in no way discriminatory. I consider myself to be someone who has the capacity to think with an open mind. Anyway, There have been alot of articles circulating lately about the presidential debate, terrorism and how muslim/islam is tied to it all. I am not one to believe everything I see, especially on the internet..so I'm just looking for insight and answers here.

My question is, since it seems many eastern cultures and religions do not condone western beliefs and culture, then why would people of east religion migrate to the west?

Is this strictly Islamic belief or does it tie into Muslim beliefs as well? Does this just have to do with being more "Americanized" or less strict in practice?

Muslims condone the western culture, they move away from their countries due to civil war, poverty and Islamic strict laws. i personally would take you there with me, you wouldn't even find a single Christian church. it is by law to worship Allah. some environment are so tense that a western cultured woman would only be respected if she's wearing the bhuka.

i know you only pondering upon the subject of muslim and islam mixing with the western culture infact most muslims do not even try to mix with western culture they practice their culture in a western country and even build their mosque out of free will. but a western man can not practice the opposite in a eastern providence or else his head will be decapitated.

Islam lacks tolerence where ever they are everything has to be their way. for example the Danish cartoonist drew Muhammed with virgins in paradise but they protested all over europe including the streets of London? where is the peace? where is the tolerance after all we all humans the only thing that is dividing us is our beliefs.

How many times have you seen this happening in the christian community, even the country i was born in, it was predominantly christians and then muslims who belt their mosque on every corner of the city, yet again this is a christian country and they believe in free will, while islam is the will of allah and politics.

first of all , just wanna to tell you that christians and jews lived in arab and muslims countries peacefully without problems
so , i didn't see relegions reason for migration of people of east to the west

i think that the only reason is the poverty of some eastern countries , may be politics reason in other countries as iraq or phalstine and may be for studying
whatever it dosn't tie into muslims beliefs
they do that just for better life regardless of laws and relegions in east

yes may be some people think about that
in western countries there are more free to commit adultery , and drinking for example
and yes , unfortunatly many people like to commit the sin freely because eastern countries are more strict in these issues
