IS THE MUSLIM INVASION OF AMERICA
ENDANGERING OUR WAY OF LIFE?
Dr. Rene Menguy
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of you teamming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Year after year they’ve come, boatload after boatload, their shining eyes full of hope, in search of freedom and a better way of life, for themselves and their children.
My country, 'tis of Thee,
Sweet Land of Liberty
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountain side
Let Freedom ring.
Those who threw caution aside to cross the “tempest-tossed” ocean and face an uncertain future were amply rewarded. They came from every country in Europe; from Ireland and Germany, Poland and Italy, Scandinavia and Russia to become part of America. Could we have laid the ribbons of steel joining the east and the west of our great nation without those Chinese immigrants who showed us how to blow a gap through the great divide even though many didn’t have a “chinaman’s chance” of surviving. Having found the freedom they had yearned for, many of those immigrants died for it.
Virtually all of them, regardless of their religious affiliations, even the African-Americans, so inhumanely treated for so long, have assimilated, something facilitated by a common Judeo-Christian ethic.
Americans live by the “law of the land”. We understand why the framers of our constitution separated the affairs of state from those of Religion. We also understand that the Laws governing our lives are formulated by elected men and women and that these laws are susceptible to revision from time to time by our chosen representatives.
The supporters of the Mosque argue that, by opposing its location, we may have given the Taliban an influx of support in the form of donations and recruits to “fight back against this outrage.” Can one rationalize with people whose perverse logic ignores the fact that most Americans only oppose the mosque’s location? With people who ignore the fact that Muslims destroyed the World Trade Center; the fact that the Lockerbie bomber is a Muslim; as were those who attacked the USS Cole, and those who bombed US embassies in Africa, and those who bombed our Marine barracks in Lebanon and our military barracks in Saudi Africa?. Have they conveniently forgotten Major Nidal Malik Hasan who murdered 12 of our soldiers at Fort Hood? And, what about the increasing number of acts of terrorism perpetrated by home-grown Muslims?
Do they think we’re stupid? Maybe they do. Haven’t our leaders stated that we are not at war with Islam? If so, what were those crowds celebrating in the streets of Muslim cities during the days following the outrage of 9/11? Why was the Libyan Leader feting the Lockerbie bomber upon his return home? Although some Muslim scholars did indeed condemn the events of 9/11, theirs was not a deafening outcry.
According to a survey done by The Muslim Group of America, there were 962 mosques in the US in 1997. By 2007 the number had increased to 1462 for a total US Muslim population of 6-7 million. The number seems adequate even accounting for the fact that the percentage of Muslims who are actively religious exceeds that of any other established religion.
Several weeks ago, I posted a piece suggesting that Muslims, so different from us in many respects, aim to replace our customs and laws with their mores and Sharia Law, rather than assimilating as other immigrants have. The reviews were mixed. The following nugget exemplifies some of the, shall we say negative, comments.
“Experts on these matters would tell you that, like other immigrant populations in modern history, Muslim immigrants in Europe and the U.S. (like Latino immigrants to the U.S., and like Italians and Irish and others in the 19th century) will begin to assimilate in the 2nd generation (that is, the first generation of immigrants are more likely to remain in enclaves, clinging to the culture they brought from home; their children will learn the language and in other ways assimilate, and this process will continue in subsequent generations. This is exactly what you see in Paris, Berlin, and elsewhere.”
Whoever wrote this has not been to France, where Muslim immigration was allowed to run amok. Had he been, he would have sensed the loathing that those coming from the Maghreb have for their hosts, a feeling returned in spades. Muslim immigration has so overwhelmed permissive French institutions that France is probably the worst affected of all western nations by the invasion. Because large numbers of Arabs promote crime and violence, particularly against women, the threat of violence from radical Islamic elements is ever present on politicians' minds. As their numbers increase, they believe they have the RIGHT to impose Islam on the French. As a result of their very high fertility rate, France may well become the first European Nation to fall under Sharia Law.
The problem is even worse in England where the Muslim population is increasing ten times faster than the rest of society, according to official research collated for The Times. In the same period of 2004-2008, the number of Christians fell by more than 2 million. Experts attribute the increase to immigration, a higher birthrate and conversions to Islam. David Coleman, Professor of Demography at Oxford University, wrote: “The implications are very substantial. Some of the Muslim populations, by no means all of them, are the least socially and economically integrated of any in the United Kingdom ... and the one most associated with political dissatisfaction.”
Should the comment quoted above “Experts(sic) on these matters, etc..) accurately reflect an American consensus, I fear that our country faces the threat of Islamization.
