There seems to be this notion among a wide swath of the US public that there is a particularly strong resistance to US / western culture in people of the Islamic faith who are coming to the US to settle and live. Specifically that this resistance is stronger and more profound than seen in almost any other immigrating group.
With respect the question I’m mostly interested in Doper’s personal experiences with US citizens of the Islamic faith who are first or second generation. I can understand original immigrants may have strong culturally bound attitudes, but what about their kids and grandkids. Is there any evidence of this you have observed in Muslims born and raised in the US who you are familiar with? Do Muslim women born and raised in the US feel they are bound by old school Muslim cultural expectations out of sync with western cultural values?
