I don't think you understand - China and Europe has more in common then either does with Muslims, just look at how immigrants from the other two societies manage to integrate into the host for each case. Russia is under attack from Muslims and is sinking into fascism. The future really isn't very bright for you guys - sorry!
I don't understand why you're trumpeting a shift in the relative balance of power. The west has dominated the entire globe for centuries. A bit of balance isn't actually a bad thing, it will only be a relative rise anyway. You do realise China still has millions of peasant farmers, right?
Don't worry about that anyway - in the future there's going to be water,food and fuel scarities - have fun feeding all those mouths in those infertile muslim countries
I heard the desert reaps a really good harvest.
You can not forget that China has an estimated 150 million Muslims. Aside from this China is a close ally of many Muslim nations. India also has a population of 150 million Muslims.
Malaysia, Indonesia, Mauritius, Maldives, Turkey, Saudi Arabia (GDP $23,243,) Tunisia, UAE (GDP $37,293), Brunei (GDP $50 000), Oman (GDP $23 000), Iran Pakistan (nuclear power), Qatae (GDP $80 000) not to forget the africans - Algeria, Morocco, Senegal etc.
Imagine they were all united, which is the ideology behind islam. the "ummah" one body, if one part is hurt the entire body feels the pain. They have the resources to become the most developed countries in the world. The thing keeping them is the divisions which have been created over time.
