Why is it that it is only the West that hasm chances for economic freedom and success?

How come millions of Muslims go to Europe but not to South Korea or Japan? Its because the S. Koreans and japanese are smart and they don't want any third worlders in there country. Hell, In Italy the Muslims don't even bother to learn Italian let alone assimilate.

    The "West" or what people call Europe, is actually closer and traveling from the Middle East to Eastern Asia is crossing three countries, and the vast and mountainous land of Tibet (no real mode of transportation there like airports and cars) or jumping from Pakastan to India and to China, making many stops in foreign countries.

    And imagine the price to get there if they can't even afford most nessesities of life. While you could hitch a boat or some form of motor transportation on land to Turkey, then to the rest of Europe.

    Immigration of Muslims to European countries is an issue in Europe, but I don't know much of it, though they are afraid that radical Islamic terrorist can cross in and out of Europe a bit too easily.

    Japan is overpopulated. You sound like an American complaining about Latinos not assimilating... lol you guys are all the same. Deal with it, multiculturalism is here to stay. Instead of whining and crying on how much you hate those foreigners, learn to love them and get along with them because they are here for long. Happy New Year.

    We all complain about the West, but nowhere in the world are people from different ethnicities so well accepted.
