The EU countries long ago decided to commit suicide by not promoting replacement birthrate and becoming woke. As the migrants pile in so dose the Jihad (a religious war). As we know, we are observing the end of Christianity in Europe with many more Mosques built to replace abandoned churches (some of which "accidentally" catch fire). With few exceptions a sizable part of EU countries are already beyond recourse.
People in Europe will soon enough go back to having two children on average, and they are too intelligent to adopt anything resembling woke. Muslim refugees in time will become as secular as Christians are, because that's what happens when you are educated. Stop considering the accidental as being structural, because that's not going to happen. We are going through a crisis, but that's all.
You think Muslims will abandon their faith? Just as you continue to believe in the myth of Socialism, they will continue to believe in the myth of Islam ☪️.

You have less excuse, Sertorio. Nobody came back to tell Muslims that there are no virgins in paradise. But there are plenty of examples of the hell on earth that Socialism created. Yet you still believe.

Do you have any idea of what it is about Islam that provides adherents with such tenacious confidence in it? Clearly this provides the creed with considerable strength.

Yes, I do. Islam is a faith that is good at maintaining discipline. It insists on praying five times a day. There is a penalty for leaving Islam. Under Sharia, the penalty is death. Most Muslim countries don't enforce Sharia, a main peeve of the Taliban, ISIS and Al Qaeda. But there are social penalties - usually ostracism by family members and friends. They must not just declare they are Muslims, but must demonstrate it by praying five times a day and fasting during Ramadan.

If you invite a devout Muslim out to a office lunch, he might go along to show solidarity with his office mates but he may refuse to eat if there is pork or alcohol on the table. There is sharia court in Singapore, separate cookhouse in the army when they do national service for the Muslim soldiers. There is even Islamic banking.

All this segration brings solidarity for the Muslim community and it reminds them they are separate and distinct from the rest of us. Its best to understand Islam as a warror's religion designed to build cohesion in an army.

Praying 5 times a day and facing Mecca, reminds all that they belong to a worldwide community of Muslims. Apostasy is regarded as treason for it envisages Islam at war with unbelievers. That's why the sharia imposes the death penalty for apostasy.

Fearsome admonishements in the Koran warns them not to take unbelievers for their friends.
3:117 Believers! Do not become friends with anyone except your own people. The unbelievers will not rest until they have corrupted you. They wish nothing but your ruin. Their hatred of you is made clear by their words, but even greater hatred is hidden within their hearts. We have made Our signs clear to you. Therefore, do your best to comprehend them.
Fear of ostracism and losing those whom you were close and dear with makes it difficult for them to leave their faith. Admitting that your faith is false will create psychological stress in you for it means that you will earn the hostility of your loved ones.
