I agree with other posters, all religions are a pain in the arse to integrate. Condemning people who don't feel the need to follow outdated moral codes. Christianity still infects the politics of the UK but thankfully is being forced out.

Followers of Islam have lived just fine in the U.S. for a very long time now in all walks of life.

Your biggest issue in Germany isn't muslims, it's Africans sneaking over there.

Its not Islam so many have an issue with, its Arabic culture and how a lot of it is used to make Islam look bad.
From the first days of the neighbourhood's formation, Govanhill has always been a popular settlement area for people coming to Glasgow and Scotland. The population has regularly changed and diversified as migrants have chosen to live in the area. Migration started with people from the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland; from England (workers from Shropshire to carry new techniques at the iron works);  from Ireland; Jewish people fleeing persecution in Eastern Europe; people from the Punjab and other parts of the Indian sub-continent; Glasgow's new communities of former asylum seekers and refugees and – most recently – migrants benefiting from Enlargement of the European Union originating from Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic (2004) and Romania and Bulgaria (2007). The area has long been Scotland's most culturally diverse neighbourhood. Of the 15,000 people living in the neighbourhood, approximately 40% are from ethnic minority communities (2012), with Roma people from Eastern Europe making up 3,000–3,500 of the local population. This diversity is reflected in the local shops, the languages spoken in the street and in the people found locally. A social survey carried out by Govanhill Housing Association, identified 52 nationalities and 32 languages spoken within just 13 tenement blocks, within the area..

I like the co-existancce of fake American Christians and those who they insult, slander, and condemn to hell for not listening in up with their beliefs. That is the kind of co-existancce I like.

But I have seen a lot of Muslims in Canada and the US getting around easily and mixing well with the society.It also depends on ones personality and the intensity of their beliefs...Besides,I am not sure if anyone can integrate fully and completely in any society.
If you grew up in another culture then you are right, full assimilation will be near impossible.
The children of these people however should integrate very well, provided they aren’t led to believe that the culture they are living in is inferior.
If that is the case then you won’t have assimilation you will have a parallel society and nothing but problems
