Why is it that no one in Europe noticed that when Trump announced the US embassy move to Jerusalem, Muslims in America did not erupt in anti-Semitic protests and violent actions like some Muslims in Europe did?

I guess exposing this would destroy the myth of European superiority over America.

The reason for the difference is that America has done a far better job of integrating Muslims than Europe.

Plus never there has never been a pogrom against Jews in America during its entire history unlike Europe's centuries of pogroms which ultimately resulted in the Holocaust.

History played a big part in why Muslims in America don't go an anti-Semitic rampages like it sometimes happens in Europe.
