With all the mass immigration happening in europe, the recent paris attacks, and videos such as this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKp6GV69MT4), I've been getting increasingly unsettled. I've heard that the vast majority of these immigrants aren't even syrian refugees, and are just "freeloading" in a sense to get into better countries.
The video I linked, and in fact most opinions I read around the internet, portray them as violent and barbaric people who are unable to accommodate to civilized life. Another popular opinion I see floating around, the one I came here to ask about, is that the ideology of these immigrants (islam), and their lower performance on intelligence tests suggests that they will overpopulate european countries, become a majority, and scrap all european laws for "sharia law". This will spiral into unending wars like the ones currently occurring in the middle east.
Essentially, they suggest that islam is a destructive ideology that doesn't allow for scientific progress, rejects egalitarianism (with respect to women and non-muslims), promotes violence towards non-muslims, and will lead to the impoverishment of any nation whose population believes in the ideology.
I find this very scary, and I have many muslim friends who don't support any of what I mentioned above. I came here in hopes that some of you would refute the validity of these opinions and reveal them as the ignorant, racist, and unfounded opinions that I hope they are.
