Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It would be interesting to see numbers on these things from more countries, like Sweden, Finalnd, Norway and Denmark.

And also more precise statistics, like shia, sunni, bahai, persians, arabs, north african arabs, sub saharan muslims, sub saharan christians, income levels, level of education , active believers, atheist "muslims" etc.

Seeing immigrants or muslims as a homogenous mass is a very big mistake.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.

Yes, I would like to see more figures on that as well. (Geographical origin of muslim communities.)

Muslims are not like Muslims (compare Indonesia to Pakistan -
Muslim 97% (Sunni 77%, Shi'a 20%), Christian, Hindu, and other 3%

Muslim 88%, Protestant 5%, Roman Catholic 3%, Hindu 2%, Buddhist 1%, other 1% (1998)

Compare the Pakistani figures to the British figures. The have a similar attitude towards Islam and their nationality.

Overall frightening and extremely interesting.
