If Islam becomes the dominate world religion would you convert?
Even if you wouldn't convert to Islam for intellectual reasons would you convert for socio-economical reasons? What if being Muslim was the only way to get a decent job and housing? Or what if being a Muslim would make your social situation better because of it?
When Islam becomes the dominate religion in an area it institutes what is called dhimmi. Which makes anyone non-Muslim inferior and puts them at a disadvantage. They also have to pay a jizya tax so they can live and practice their faith.
Wouldn't it be easier just to convert to Islam so you'd have the same socio-economic benefits as the rest of the dominate religion/people in society?

NO. Why would you? Why do people seem to think one religion is better than another? It amazes me how the core values of most religions (i.e. "the golden rule") are lost on its followers.
