Flame? No. Question, sure.
All over the world? Save those in North America, who tend to integrate very well.
But then, other immigrant groups also tend to integrate more successful in North America than in Europe and elsewhere.
There's probably a degree of selection bias at work, but successful integration probably has at least
as much to do with the host society as the incoming population, no? Many Muslim communities are on the wrong track. Many aren't. Are North American societies just lucky? Lucky to get a larger slice of wealthy migrants, no doubt, but more than just lucky.
Consider the news on Danish immigration
, Italian (among others) treatment of the Roma, resurgence of far-right parties in Austria, France, Britain, (east) Germany. These issues aren't often folded into a neat package and treated as a single issue, and aren't entirely due to a reaction against Muslim immigrants. Still, there's little discussion of the Europeans' problems in getting along with the rest of world, and what little there is focuses on Europe's demographics and the need to import more young migrants to pay for the coming gray wave.
Just looking for the other half of the picture.
