That is a blanket statement that does not correspond with the reality in any of the Muslim majority countries I know, let alone in the West, where Muslims are in a minority. The only voice that the western mass media amplifies is the voice of extremism, i.e. ISIS/ISIL, Boko Haram etc. If you live in the UK, you would have seen these radical groups in all the headlines, and would know that there are precious few voices from the peace loving Muslim majority that are represented in the media. That is the way that mass media works, it is the loudest voice and they call it news, but it certainly does not represent the voice of the majority of people. Not here, and not in the U.S. as far as I am aware.
Neo-colonial (or Neo-liberal) interests still rule the Muslim world. During the so-called 'Arab Spring', Muslims across the Middle East spoke up and took to the streets to protest against the regimes imposed upon them, largely as a result of 'Western interests'. They were, and still are, attacked, killed or imprisoned. Why are the refugees flooding out of Syria, if not to escape a despotic regime that is at war with its own people? Where is their voice? Everywhere you look, in the West or abroad, you can see the voices silenced by an existing order that clings ever more rigidly to an unsustainable status quo. Same old same old. Even here in Europe, Syriza represent the democratic voice of their people, but are the technocrats at the EU listening?
Go talk to the three thousand refugees in Calais, trying to smuggle themselves and their families across the English Channel. Ask them why they want to come to the UK, a country that is doing its best to stem the flow of immigrants (especially if they are Arabs). They will tell you they want safety, even if just for a few moments, and that if they stay in their country they are likely to die at any moment. Do you think their voice will make any difference for them? Will it stop the cries of the fear-mongers, i.e. 'the Muslims are taking over this country'? They are only facing detention in the UK, and likely deportation back to their countries of origin.
Look at Yemen, a country that was peaceful until 2010. Some years before, the U.S. had started killing them with drones, under the authorisation of then President Abdullah Saleh. When, after over thirty years in power, Saleh was finally ousted by a popular uprising, he fled to the U.S. The drones continued to attack peaceful villages.The Houthis, a previously tiny minority group, had been attacking towns and cities, bombing mosques and government buildings. Strangely, there were no drones sent to stop them. They have now seized power, and forced the resignation of the existing Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. Did Muslims get to 'choose the voice they want the same as you and I'?
