Dutch professor: No Western country has managed to successfully integrate Muslims




Based on his 20-year-long studies on integration and assimilation, Dutch professor of sociology Ruud Koopmans has come to the conclusion that Muslims are more difficult to integrate than other migrant groups.

Ruud Koopmans claims than no Western country has managed to successfully integrate Muslims.
“Muslims are much worse at integration than other groups of migrants, and there is no doubt that in most other groups of migrants, we see great progress from one generation to the next. Although it’s not completely absent in Muslims, the change is much slower,” he told Danish newspaper Berlingske recently.

Around 65 percent of the Turkish and Moroccan Muslims in six European countries consider religious rules to be more important than the secular law of the country in which they live.

Muslims consider themselves separate from other non-Muslim groups, and refrain from broader interaction with those outside their religion.
The fundamentalist interpretation of the Quran, which is prevalent among Muslims, prevents them from being integrated into Western countries.
And up to 50 percent of Muslims in Europe hold fundamentalist beliefs. By contrast, the proportion of fundamentalists among Christians is much lower, at less than 4 percent, according to Koopmans’ data
“I conclude that the Islamic world is lagging behind rest of the world when it comes to democracy, human rights, and political and economic development,” Koopmans told Berlingske, attributing this to conservative views on the role of women, low investment into children’s education and fundamentalist propaganda.

“The main problem is how many Muslims and, globally, many Muslim countries interpret Islam. Namely, in a way that basically claims that the Quran and the Sunna must be taken literally, and that the way the Prophet lived in the 7th century must be the yardstick for how Muslims should live in the 21st century.”

“Such a brand of Islam is, firstly, a threat to world peace. Secondly, it prevents integration,” Koopmans concluded.

4. It's the muslims who refuse to integrate....not the countries.

They are insular and they like it that way......they move into another country and slowly " colonize " it.

They put up arabic signs and arabic businesses and try to put Sharia Law ahead of whatever country they move to.

It is a cultural invasion.

6. I watched muslims emigrating to my home town in England in large numbers from Pakistan in the

50's and 60's They wanted NOTHING to do with us. They hated us. They hated our culture.

The last time I was in England I had a 50 mile taxi ride with a Pakistani driver. He was telling me his grandfather emigrated to England in about 1950. Long story short, he told me is family considered themselves Pakistani, not British, and he was only in England for the Fall and Winter months driving a cab. The rest of the time they lived in Pakistan where they grew oranges.

It's all about the £ and the $ and their nutty religion.
