There are two Americans in the top 50. One is from Iran and the other is a homegrown (white, aka Mark Hanson) Muslim hailing from Walla Walla, Washington. We have 41 who made the top 500 - pretty good (or bad) since we only have 2.6 million Muslims...

...so far. I would expect the numbers to grow as our freedom of religion and speech will draw moderate Muslims who wish to escape the hellish theocracies being born in North Africa and the Middle East.

Mormons are also making big gains. Doesn't look too good for the home team.
