When I came to the States this past August I felt safe... the airports were not exactly friendly, nor convenient, but I never felt unsafe.
Since I a Muslim middle eastern and lived in many parts of the US I think I am qualified to answer this question. (Oh and I study politics too)
This does not necessarily mean a better place though. Most of the issues about immigration and whether somewhere is a good place to move to or not are not related to one's religion. Europe can very well be a better place to move to than the USA based on one's expectation and circumstances.
France and Germany have the biggest Muslim populaces in Europe (characterized as the 28 current European Union pe (characterized as the 28 current European Unionpart nations in addition to Norway and Switzerland). As of mid-2016, there were 5.7 million Muslims in France (8.8% of the nation's populace) and 5 million Muslims in Germany (6.1%). The EU nation in which Muslims make up the biggest offer of the populace is Cyprus: The island country's 300,000 Muslims make up around one-quarter (25.4%) of its populace, and are for the most part Turkish Cypriots with profound roots in Cyprus (and not late transients).
It depends from region to region
and what kind of government and population does that particular country, state
Racism against Muslims has always
been prevalent across the world. (Not that people of other race/religion don’t
experience such discrimination, by the way!) However, 9/11 played a major role in
shaping the Islamic world and how Muslims are looked at in the western countries.
And that ripple is felt even till this day.
The countries where the right
wing politics is more prevalent, the threat against Muslims are more evident. USA
is a great example of this. When Donald Trump was elected the President of USA,
he banned Muslims of selected countries to enter the country. Countries like
Sweden and UK has right-wing governments. And there, the political scene is
largely influenced by Muslim-related topics. Meaning, this is a rather sensitive
issue that always put Muslims – especially the lower-end Muslims – at risks. Racism
is common. Mosques are vandalized occasionally. And the saddest part is that
such news doesn’t make it to the mainstream.
With that being said, one should
also not let go of the fact that Muslim community has always gotten the wide
support from people of other races. When Donald Trump banned Muslims from
entering the country, there was a huge backlash not just from Americans but
from around the world. The number of liberal leaders is more than right-wingers.
Even amid Islamist terrorist attacks, we have seen on social media that Muslims
– along with hate – receive mass support.
In view of my encounters, the USA is a superior spot for Muslims when all is said in done, yet it changes from nation to nation in Europe. Muslims in the UK have it better than state Muslims in France. For the accompanying reasons, I think the USA is better for Muslims:
The United States isn't as unyieldingly common (as in the French thought of laicite) thus you don't wind up with idiocies as you do in Europe with hijab being restricted in schools in France, state.
The historical backdrop of the Muslim people group in the USA is distinctive to that of Europe: huge numbers of the Muslims that verifiably went to the United States were college understudies and henceforth had more elevated levels of training contrasted with the Muslims in Europe. They are hence progressively prosperous, and - again to talk in sweeping statements - assets and offices (mosques, establishments and so on) for the Muslim people group appear to be more grounded in the USA.
