American Muslims are the new faces of the American reality, and they are not going anywhere.

Mr Alikhan, I just went down the entire east coast, through out every state, and mostly in the north, I saw Muslims as I saw all different ethnic groups. However, while all other groups were intermingled, the muslims were all huddled together in cafes, in diners, in restaurants, in malls. They weren’t speaking English, I even had a’ problem’ in Nordstroms with a sales clerk, when I was trying on clothing, I had a woman wearing a hajib telling me, while I was reviewing the shirt I was trying on in a mirror, that I should try one with long sleeves to be more modest. You tell me what my response should have been. Can you possibly put yourself in my heels??? WELL, I was insulted since her opinion was not asked for, nor was I seeking hers. I walked away and out the store without a sale . OH by the way, I’m from the south, wearing long sleeves would not get much mileage in my wardrobe. It’s called ASSIMILATING, both my parents were immigrants, they assimiliated and insisted we learn English, we went to public schools. We were poor, but we never took a handout, and the little clothes we had, were always clean. While my parents English was flawed, the neighborhood kids and their parents were more than helpful with helping them with words. They assimiliated. They celebrated all American holidays with more furor than generational Americans. They were grateful to be here. I haven’t seen any Muslims in NYC at the Macy’s day fireworks celebrations, nor any block party Fourth of July cookouts. So tell me why would I want to bring more immigrants from this part of the world here, when the ones I have met here have been rude and un-inclusive!!!

Islam appears to be evolving along with the Muslim population here and overseas. (My wife is from the middle-east and has a large circle of friends here in Northern California of both Muslim and Christian heritage)
Recently one of her friends (a middle-age Muslim male) posted a few photos of his parents on Facebook. The photos included the parents friends and acquaintances on family outings such as at the beach, etc. Photos were from Egypt circa ~1955. All subjects in the photos were in western-style dress, some in swim suits, etc. Poster posted his own quiz: Guess which in the photo were Christian and which Muslim? (All were Muslim)
Several Muslim Facebook friends posted back, “There were NO Muslims. No good Muslim woman would appear in public without at least hair covered and NEVER in a swimsuit.
In the 50′s and 60′s Syria and Egypt along with Iraq, Jordan, and Lebanon were flirting with a very open, secular, and socialist society. Why are you allowing your Mullah’s to take you backward? And why should the US allow those traveling backward in time into a free and open, secular society?

I’m not a big fan of Islam, or frankly any religion. But I’ve been in Europe enough times to see what alienating the Muslim community in the U.K, Germany and especially France has done. The suburbs north and east of Paris are horrific. The French refuse to employe them for the most part, and the Muslims have no great desire to assimilate. Around Paris it is estimated there are 2 million Muslims. The French essentially enable Muslims to do nothing. There is no such enabling here, and we’re lucky enough to be able to screen who comes in much more carefully. The result is the Muslim community is far better positioned – the average Muslim family has a household income slightly higher than average. They have a piece of the pie, and so have far less desire to blow it up. We on occasion do things right around here… This seems ok to me.

There are many Orthodox Christian families in Montgomery County. They will celebrate Christmas on January 7, 2016. Will their children be able to celebrate their Christmas at home like Muslim children will now be able celebrate Eid? If not, why not?
BTW, March 13, 2016 will be L. Ron Hubbard’s birthday. This is a very important holiday in Scientology. Will that be a Montgomery County Public Schools holiday?

This holiday celebrates farm animal sacrifice for Allah. It’s a bloody horror in the Muslim world. The farm animals must be conscious when they are slain (halal). Whatever decision people make about eating meat it shouldn’t be endorsed by a God. Montgomery County was supposed to be a progressive county. But the school board there is taking it back to the dark ages. Not only the farm animals were thrown under the bus but those who are vegetarians or vegans as well. Islam is what it is. What next? No dogs in apartment buildings in Montgomery County because Mohammed said they are harem (unclean). No pet therapy in nursing homes.
Islam is the only religion that is brought into the school on a daily basis through dress and boys all being Mohammed. Do we need to keep pandering to them over everything. This is a religion that is in desperate need of a reformation. How is this barbaric holiday encouraging that.

I sure wish we’d had the MoCo Board around when serving in a foreign country ruled by the Muslims as a US soldier some years ago. We could not have any sign of Christianity where we lived; a priest came in two to three times a year literally under cover of darkness and the service was closed and carefully guarded. Yep, that’s the way the Muslims treated us as soldiers in their country trying to help them. But, then, we never asked to have Christmas set aside as a day off over there. And, of course, there were no Jews serving with us since the country forbade them altogether.
FBI: Middle Eastern Men Intimidating U.S. Military Families In Colorado & Wyoming
Ali Muhammad Brown, 30, has been charged with felony murder, carjacking, robbery, multiple weapons offenses and even New Jersey’s first terror charge for the alleged murder of 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin in West Orange on June 25, 2014.
I was born and raised here. This is my land. I’ll raise my children here, Insha’allah [God willing] and probably be buried here as well. I knew that by accepting Islam I was declaring that America needed to do so too. America, my home, would naturally become an Islamic country one day. There is no other way to think if you are a truly conscientious believer in Allah.
What can Muslims do to improve their chances in the West? Some answers are provided by a sympathetic Christian scholar in the USA (Poston 1991). He believes that five main actions are crucial for the future well-being and expansion of Islam in America: (1) The need to develop an indigenous American leadership: American converts should be trained quickly and thoroughly for positions of leadership in order to avoid the categorization of Islam as a foreign ‘cult’. (2) The stereotypical negative image of Islam must be transformed through proper use.of the media. (3) Provocative anti-Christian polemics should be avoided lest they provoke a strong reaction among Christians (whether practising or non-practising). (4) Muslims should attempt to reach more achievable goals by promoting co-operation among themselves instead of focusing their concern on homogenizing diverse Muslim ethnic groups. (5) Muslim individuals should become involved in dawah (social welfare and missionary) activities in order to overcome the powerful assimilative influence of the American mainstream. These are practical and sensible suggestions, and most Muslims will find little to argue in them. Many Muslims may have reached these conclusions themselves but as communities they are still some way from implementing them. Unless they do so, strife will result from their minority position. Muslim leaders and writers need to do more serious thinking.
I. Did you Know?: The Muslim Brotherhood has an agenda for the United States of America? Beware Islam in America.
II.Did you Know?:Europeans allow themselves to suffer for the sake of tolerating intolerance?
III.Did you Know?:Muslims reject the law of cause and effect and ascribe all natural phenomena to the direct action of their non-existent god, Allah?
IV. Did you Know?: Columbus discovered the New World after Muslims had arrived and had inter-married with Algonquins?
I.Hasan-al-Banna founded the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928 as an anti-Western Islamic movement. In order to explain Muslim inferiority and backwardness in relation to the West, he resorted to an ideology that would restore the ancient purity of Islam when it was a powerful irresistible force. Pure becomes devout and transmutes into militant then radical. He modeled his movement on Nazi Brownshirts, the Sturmabteilung, Hitler’s street thugs. Al-Banna is one of the Arab thinkers responsible for Islamism. His credo: Allah is our objective. The prophet is our Leader. Qu’ran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.
Unfortunately, the Muslim Brotherhood isn’t simply a problem for Muslims — it’s also a problem for the rest of America as well because they seek to establish an Islamic state here. That would mean that all non-Muslims would become second class citizens, the separation of church and state would disappear, women would become politically and socially inferior, and most of Americans’ cherished freedoms would be eliminated. A Saudi-style theocracy in America appears to be part of their dream, and everyone else’s nightmare.
“The following five statements are just a sampling of what is being advocated to the Muslim Youth by the Muslim Brotherhood not only in Egypt, England, Saudi Arabia, or Pakistan [and Virginia].”
1. “Liberate the homeland from all un-Islamic or foreign control, whether political, economic, or ideological”.
2. “If the government neglects its duties and falls short of its responsibilities, then it will be the duty of the people to first advise and guide, then to dismiss and remove the government, for No obedience is due to a creature who is disobedient to the Creator”.
3. “Formation: This is achieved by selecting and consolidating those members who can bear the burden of jihad (all out struggle). The training in this phase comprises spiritual refinement and military preparation…the mode of work is represented by the fraternal battalions”.
4. “Always cherish the intention of jihad and the desire for martyrdom in the Way of Allah, and actually prepare yourself for that. Introduce yourself and become thoroughly acquainted with the members of your battalion one by one”.
5. “Allah is our goal; the messenger is our example; the Quran is our constitution; jihad is our means; and martyrdom in the way of Allah is our aspiration. These can be condensed further into five words: plainness, recitation, prayer, military preparedness, and manners”.
Any doubt concerning the seriousness of the Muslim design to eventually contravene the Constitution and replace it with Sharia law in conformity with the Koran can be dispelled at this link. Note: the beginning of this document is Arabic.
Mosques are the Muslim cultural centers. There Muslim preachers extol the glory and service to Allah of martyrdom. Farfur is a Mickey Mouse type cartoon character created in 2007 by Hamas terrorists to indoctrinate children with their lust for blood in service to Allah.
Dying for Allah is the supreme good for an Islamist who does not seek a productive life in service to their family, community and nation. Re-establishing the Caliphate, an imperial state, is their objective. Muslims in general are educated in their mosques by clerics to believe that the United States is the inherent enemy of Islam.
II.After World War II, countries such as France and Germany that had been devastated by the conflict imported Muslim labor to rebuild and recover. In succeeding decades liberal countries such as Denmark and Sweden permitted political refugees to settle in Scandinavia. These economic and egalitarian decisions have now redounded with unintended consequences. Because of the legacy of oppression Judaism during the war, the Holocaust, Europeans are now reluctant to confront the growing problem of Muslims in their midst who refuse to assimilate or accommodate themselves to European norms. As an example, Muslims bury their dead in shrouds rather than coffins. Piggy banks and Winnie the Pooh offend Muslims. Books such as Londinistan by Melanie Phillips and Eurabia by Bat Ye’or signify the existence of this problem. There are cities such as Vienna that have “no-go” zones for non-Muslims. Muslims choose not to become European by adopting values such as tolerance and plurality yet Europe has become part of the Muslim world.
This Sunday Times article from 2008, explores this issue.
Perhaps it had to be someone like Michael Nazir-Ali, the first Asian bishop in the Church of England, who would break with convention and finally point out the elephant in the room. His comments last week about the growing stranglehold of Muslim extremists in some communities revived debate about the future of multiculturalism and provoked a flurry of condemnation. Members of all three political parties immediately clamoured to dismiss him. “I don’t recognise the description that he’s talked about – no-go areas and people feeling intimidated,” said Hazel Blears, the communities secretary.
A quick call to her Labour colleague John Reid, the former home secretary, would almost certainly have helped her to identify at least one of those places. Just over a year ago Reid was heckled by the Muslim extremist Abu Izzadeen in Leytonstone, east London, during a speech on extremism, appropriately. “How dare you come to a Muslim area,” Izzadeen screamed.
That picture is mirrored outside London. One of our country’s biggest and most deprived Muslim areas is Small Heath, in Birmingham, where Dr Tahir Abbas, director of the Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Culture, was raised. With a dominant Asian monoculture, low social achievement and high unemployment, Small Heath is precisely the kind of insular and disengaged urban ghetto Nazir-Ali was talking about.
Reflecting on his experiences there, Abbas is critical of his peers who don’t stray beyond their area. “They haven’t seen rural Devon, a stately home or Windsor Castle,” he says. That refusal to engage with anything beyond the community is suffocating young Muslims by divorcing them almost entirely from Britain’s cultural heritage and mainstream life.
And their feelings of separation have been further reinforced by the advent of digital broadcasting, which has swelled the number of foreign language television stations in Britain, creating digital ghettos. Islamist movements such as Hizb ut-Tahrir (of which I was once a senior member) have been quick to spot the opportunities this affords them. In 2004 the group launched a campaign aimed at undermining President Pervez Mush-arraf by broadcasting adverts on Asian satellite channels, calling on the Pakistani community in Britain to “stop Busharraf”.
Manzoor Moghal, chairman of the Leicester-based Muslim Forum, is unequivocal about the dangers such Islamification poses. “We have a cultural and social apartheid which fun-damentalists thrive off,” he says.
The point was underscored last summer when Kafeel Ahmed, whom I once knew, was arrested after a Jeep laden with explosives crashed into Glasgow airport. I think Ahmed was first radicalised in Cambridge, where I saw his views become increasingly intolerant, even though the city has a negligible Muslim population. After being exposed to the Islamist culture of separation and confrontation there, he didn’t need to be living in an actual ghetto. He was already sectioning himself off, by giving up his non-Muslim friends and eventually socialising only with those who shared his world-view.
It raises a compelling point that Labour, the Tories and the Liberal Democrats have largely tried to ignore: while the moral ambiguity of multiculturalism means Britain no longer knows what it stands for, our enemies are not just growing ever surer of themselves but are also winning the debate.
For almost three decades now, the witless promotion of cultural relativ-ism under successive governments means that our national identity can simply be reduced to the theme of a courtroom sketch from Monty Python’s Flying Circus – anything goes. Measuring the extent to which this ambiguity has affected perceptions within Britain’s already insular Muslim communities, Abbas told me he surveyed schoolchildren in Small Heath by asking them how many Muslims they thought lived in Britain.
“We had answers around 30m to 50m,” he says, with more than a hint of despondency in his voice (the true figure is 1.6m).
Moghal blames the mosques for this, saying: “They promote a conscious rejection of western values.” He has a point. In many places the prevailing attitude is that sporting a flowing Arab robe symbolises your religiosity while your piety is linked to the length of your beard.
Muslim groups have already reacted with predictable intemperance to the bishop’s comments. “Mr Nazir-Ali is promoting hatred towards Muslims and should resign,” said Mohammed Shafiq of the Ramadhan Foundation, while Ajmal Masroor of the Islamic Society of Britain said the church should “take serious action”.
Their anger vindicates him entirely and in many respects demonstrates that Nazir-Ali’s observations not only are valid, but don’t go far enough. The Glasgow bombings proved that the kinds of no-go area extremists are creating don’t always have to be physical locations.
Muslim attitudes are now so hyper-sensitive that anyone who dares to criticise Islam or Muslims has to think twice – and then some more – before doing so. Publishing a simple cartoon is enough to provoke a serious diplomatic crisis, the ransacking of embassies, mass global protest and at least several deaths.
But it’s not just non-Muslims for whom extremists reserve their hatred. After I wrote about the way British Islamists celebrated Benazir Bhutto’s assassination last month, a number of threats quickly appeared on the internet. “If I meet him I’m going to paste him in his face,” wrote Abu Junayd from Slough on a chat forum. Another commentator said I should “suffer severe punishments in this life and the hereafter”.
Their attitude springs from the Takfiri mind-set, which, in its most extreme forms, underwrites Al-Qaeda’s philosophy by suggesting that anyone who disagrees with Islamism (the extreme, politicised form of Islam) is a legitimate target for attack.
In 2006, Princeton scholar Bernard Lewis “warned that Europe would turn Muslim by the end of this century, becoming ‘part of the Arab West, the Maghreb’. Now there is a plethora of books with titles like “While Europe Slept” and “Menace in Europe”. Stagnant Europe, goes the standard argument, cannot offer immigrants jobs; appeasing Europe will not clamp down on Islamofascist extremism; secular Europe cannot deal with religiosity (in some cities, more people go to mosques each week than to churches). Europe needs to study America’s melting pot, where Muslims fare better.”
Last week Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany stated the obvious: multiculturalism has failed.
This week in France:
PARIS (Reuters) — Muslim pupils and parents in France are increasingly making religious demands on the state school system that teachers should rebuff by explaining the country’s secular principles, according to an official report.
The High Council for Integration (HCI) reported growing problems with pupils of immigrant backgrounds who object to courses about the Holocaust, the Crusades or evolution, demand halal meals and “reject French culture and its values.”
“It is becoming difficult for teachers to resist religious pressures,” said the report, published in draft form by the newspaper Journal du Dimanche over the weekend. The final report will be presented to the government next month.
“We should now reaffirm secularism and train teachers how to deal with specific problems linked to the respect for this principle,” it said.
France’s strict separation of church and state relegates religion to the private sphere, an approach challenged by a growing Islamic identity among some of the five million Muslims in the country’s 65 million population.
HCI President Patrick Gaubert told the newspaper his agency decided to study how pupils from immigrant backgrounds adapted to the state school system because “this is at the heart of the challenges that French society must face.”
The report, which studied a wide range of issues faced by pupils of immigrant backgrounds, gave no figures for the extent of problems linked to religion but said they came up so often in the hearings the HCI conducted that they merited attention.
REFUSING CLASSES, DEMANDING HALAL
Teachers often faced objections when they taught courses about world religions, the Holocaust or France’s war in Algeria, or discussed events related to Israel and the Palestinians or American military actions in Muslim countries, the study said.
“Teachers regularly find that Muslim parents refuse to have their children learn about Christianity,” it said. “Some think it amounts to evangelisation.”
“Anti-Semitism … surfaces during courses about the Holocaust, such as inappropriate jokes and refusals to watch films” about Nazi concentration camps, it said. “Tensions often come from pupils who identify themselves as Muslims.”
Teachers found they could discuss the transatlantic slave trade but met criticism from pupils when they brought up the history of slavery within Africa or in the Middle East.
Reflecting the promotion of anti-Darwinist thinking in Muslim countries, “evolution is challenged by pupils who posit divine or creationist action without any argument for it.”
In some areas with large immigrant populations, many pupils shun school cafeterias for religious reasons, even though most offer alternative dishes when pork is on the menu.
“Demand for halal menus is strong, even for the very young in public creches,” it said. “In some cities, there are petitions for halal – and sometimes kosher – meals.”
The report stressed the state could allow alternatives to pork but could not allow halal or kosher meals because the price for ritually slaughtered meat included a tax paid to religious organisations that certify the food was properly prepared.
“The school cannot, in this sense, participate in the religious education of its pupils or conform to principles that it does not recognise,” the report said.
France allows private religious schools and the number of Jewish schools has risen in recent years. There are few Muslim schools and most parents would have difficulty paying tuition.
During Ramadan, some Muslim pupils harass others who don’t observe the annual daytime fast, it said. Boys who identify themselves as Muslims and reject French values harass girls who do well in class as “collaborators” with the “dirty French.”
Some girls ask to be excused from gymnasium or pool sessions because they are not supposed to mix with boys, it added.
The report said French schools must insist on co-education, equal rights and mutual respect. “Being a French citizen means accepting challenges to one’s opinions … this is the price to pay for the freedom of opinion and expression.
“Must we recall that the crime of blasphemy has not existed in France since the French Revolution?” it asked.
This week columnist Robert Fisk of The Independent wrote:
Across the Middle East, it is the same story of despairing – sometimes frightened – Christian minorities, and of an exodus that reaches almost Biblical proportions. Almost half of Iraq’s Christians have fled their country since the first Gulf War in 1991, most of them after the 2004 invasion – a weird tribute to the self-proclaimed Christian faith of the two Bush presidents who went to war with Iraq – and stand now at 550,000, scarcely 3 per cent of the population. More than half of Lebanon’s Christians now live outside their country. Once a majority, the nation’s one and a half million Christians, most of them Maronite Catholics, comprise perhaps 35 per cent of the Lebanese. Egypt’s Coptic Christians – there are at most around eight million – now represent less than 10 per cent of the population.
Yesterday in the Washington Post:
“The Swedish are tired of walking around in their own neighborhoods and feeling like they’re in Saudi Arabia,” said [Kent] Ekeroth, an intense 30-year-old and founder of the new Anti-Islamic Fund, which promotes criticism of radical Islam. “It is time for the Swedish to be comfortable again in their own country.”
At the same time, resentment is brewing in nations like Sweden over a rising tide of Muslim immigrants and the reluctance of some to adopt local customs, testing the limits of tolerance in some of the world’s most open-minded societies.
Muslim Rape Epidemic in Sweden and Norway – Authorities Look the Other Way
(Note: Updates to this post here: The Norwegian Government – Covering Up immigrant Rapes and here: Rapes: Nothing to do with Islam?)
Numbers released in January 2005 indicate a sharp rise in the number of rape charges in Malmö, Sweden’s third largest city:
Thomas Anderberg, responsible for statistics at the Malmö Police, says there was a doubling of the number of reported rapes by ambush in 2004, following what was already a decade of steadily increasing numbers of sexual crimes. – I think that’s great news, says Anna Gustafsson, head of the Domestic Violence Unit at the Malmö Police. She suggests that the increase is due to the fact that women who otherwise wouldn’t press charges for rape now choose to contact the police.
In other words, Gustafsson claims that we are dealing with a “technical” increase, not a real one. However, national statistics reveal that reported rapes against children have almost doubled in Sweden during the past ten years:
According to Swedish Radio on Tuesday, statistics from Sweden’s National Council for Crime Prevention show that the number of reported rapes against children is on the rise. The figures have nearly doubled in the last ten years: 467 rapes against children under the age of 15 were reported in 2004 compared with 258 in 1995. Legal proceedings continue this week in a case involving a 13 year old girl from Motala who was said to have been subjected to a group rape by four men. (Note: These four men were Kurdish Muslims, who raped the girl for hours and even took photos of doing so)
The number of rape charges per capita in Malmö is 5 – 6 times that of Copenhagen, Denmark. Copenhagen is a larger city, but the percentage of immigrants is much lower. And it’s not just the rape statistics that reveal a scary increase in Malmö or Sweden. Virtually every kind of violent crime is on the rise. have increased with 50 % in Malmö only during the fall of 2004. Threats against witnesses in Swedish court cases have quadrupled between 2000 and 2003. During the past few decades, massive immigration has changed the face of Sweden’s major cities, as well as challenged the viability of the welfare state. In 1970 Sweden had the fourth highest GDP per capita among developed countries with income about 6% above the OECD average. By 1997 it was at fifteenth place with an average GDP per capita 14% below average. Malmö has a heavy concentration of Muslim immigrants in particular. According to some estimates, it will be a Muslim majority city in no more then 10 years. Crime is rampant in the growing ghettos:
Becirov runs the Islamic Center of Malmö, on the outskirts of Sweden’s third-largest city. Some immigrant neighborhoods in the city have (official) unemployment rates exceeding 50 percent. Swedish authorities have failed to lift up the area, and seem to be giving the Islamic Center of Malmö a great deal of leeway in attempting to do so. An article that appeared in 2003 noted that “a few” of the 6-to 10-year-old girls were wearing headscarves. On a visit in January 2005, fully 80 percent were covered in class–only a handful were not. In a fit of absent-mindedness, Sweden has suddenly become as heavily populated by minorities as any country in Europe. The percentage of foreign-born is roughly equivalent to the highest percentage of immigrants the United States ever had in its history (on the eve of World War I). Rosengård appears to be all-immigrant. The public schools have virtually no ethnically Swedish children. There are stories–familiar in other parts of Europe where immigrants from the Muslim world have recently settled–of students harassing Jewish teachers and defacing textbooks that treat Jewish themes. Crime is high.
Is it unfair and “racist” to suggest a link between the influx of Muslim immigrants and the growing number of rapes? Not if we compare with the situation in neighboring Denmark, where this trend has been evident for years:
Criminologist: immigrants are rape champions
If one leading expert is to be believed, the sharp rise in the number of rapes in this over the last 5 years is largely attributable to a group of unemployed and alienated immigrants. ‘Over the last 5-10 years there has an increasing tendency to marginalise and alienate immigrants,’ says Professor Flemming Balvig, a criminologist at Copenhagen University. ‘As a result, many second generation immigrants have reacted against this through various types of criminal activity, including rape.’
Alarmed at last week’s police statistics, which revealed that in 68% of all rapes committed this year the perpetrator was from an ethnic minority, leading Muslim organisations have now formed an alliance to fight the ever-growing problem of young second and third-generation immigrants involved in rape cases against young Danish girls.
As Robert Spencer has demonstrated, rape can indeed be linked to Islamic teachings of Jihad, and even to the example of Muhammad himself, his Sunna. Above all, it is connected to Islamic notions of the role of women in society, and their behaviour in the public sphere. An Islamic Mufti in Copenhagen sparked a political outcry after publicly declaring that women who refuse to wear headscarves are “asking for rape.” Apparently, he isn’t the only Muslim in Europe to think this way:
The German journalist Udo Ulfkotte told in a recent interview that in Holland, you can now see examples of young, unveiled Moroccan women with a so-called “smiley”. It means that the girl gets one side of her face cut up from mouth to ear, serving as a warning to other Muslim girls who should refuse to wear the veil. In the Muslim suburb of Courneuve, France, 77 per cent of the veiled women carry veils reportedly because of fear of being harassed or molested by Islamic moral patrols.
Hijab, the Islamic veil, is thus not ”just a piece of cloth”. It serves as a demarcation line between proper, submissive Muslim women and whores, un-Islamic women who deserve no respect and are asking for rape. The veil should more properly be viewed as the uniform of a Totalitarian movement, and a signal to attack those outside the movement. Judged in the light of the Mufti who said that women who don’t wear it are asking for rape, how on earth can the veil be said to be about ”choice”? The freedom to choose not to be raped if you dress in a normal fashion in your own country? Is that what freedom is about in Europe in 2005?
Even though Sweden, unlike Denmark, has almost no public debate about immigration, frustration is very much present underneath the surface. 75 % of Swedes think that many people in their country “dislike” Muslims, more than in any other European nation surveyed. Even in Holland, which recently witnessed violent clashes with Muslims after the murder of Islam-critic Theo van Gogh, the rate is lower than in Sweden. But you’re not supposed to talk about such issues in Sweden. That would be “racist”:
Swedish laws prohibiting “hate speech” against racial minorities have been vigorously enforced. There have, for example, been a number of gang-rapes of Swedish women by Muslim immigrants. But Swedes must be careful what they say about them. On May 25, neo-Nazi Bjorn Bjorkqvist was convicted and sentenced to two months in prison for writing, “I don’t think I am alone in feeling sick when reading about how Swedish girls are raped by immigrant hordes.” ["Jag tror inte jag är ensam om att må dåligt när jag läser om hur svenska tjejer har våldtagits av invandrarhorder"]
All in all, we must say that there is strong circumstantial evidence indicating that the rise in rape charges in the city of Malmö could very well be real, which puts the Malmö Police assertion that this is “great news” in a rather curious light. And the problem is not just limited to Sweden. It exists in Norway, too:
Rape charges in the capital are spiraling upwards, 40 percent higher from 1999 to 2000 and up 13 percent so far this year. Police Inspector Gunnar Larsen of Oslo’s Vice, Robbery and Violent crime division says the statistics are surprising – the rising number of rape cases and the link to ethnic background are both clear trends. But Larsen does not want to speculate on the reasons behind the worrying developments. While 65 percent of those charged with rape are classed as coming from a non-western background, this segment makes up only 14.3 percent of Oslo’s population. Norwegian women were the victims in 80 percent of the cases, with 20 percent being women of foreign background.
An incredibly revealing article that tells us all we need to know about the multiculturalist fetish in Europe and some parts of North America, not to mention the need for change within Islam. Apparently, the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet reported that 65 percent of rapes of Norwegian women were performed by “non-Western” immigrants – a category that, in Norway, consists mostly of Muslims. The article quoted a professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo (note: her name is Unni Wikan) as saying that “Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for these rapes” because Muslim men found their manner of dress provocative. The professor’s conclusion was not that Muslim men living in the West needed to adjust to Western norms, but the exact opposite: “Norwegian women must realize that we live in a multicultural society and adapt themselves to it.”
In January 2005, Norwegian media reported that 2004 saw the highest number or rape charges ever recorded in the capital city of Oslo. Strangely enough, there was now no mentioning of how immigrants were grossly overrepresented in rape cases. Why not? Unless there has been a sudden and unexplained drop in the number of immigrants raping Norwegian women between 2001 and 2004, which is unlikely, the statistics should be at least as staggering in 2005 as they were before. If they are not revealed, it can only mean that “somebody” didn’t like the numbers presented in 2001, and decided to bury them. That “somebody” must be a person at the very top level in the police, maybe even in the government. If so, that is disquieting. What is even more disquieting is that the media are equally silent about this. How come no journalists are digging into the material? And where are all the professional Feminists, in a Scandinavian nation brimming with them?
The conclusion one may draw from this is that the authorities in Sweden and Norway know about, or should know about, a disturbing amount of Muslim immigrant rapes of native Scandinavian women, yet choose not to make this information known to the public. Perhaps it would be just too politically incorrect to reveal the negative effects of decades of naïve immigration policies. Perhaps it would also destroy too many multicultural pipe dreams among the intellectual elites, who have built their current careers and reputations on advocating how culturally and economically enriching this new population mix would be. So in the end, the safety of young Scandinavian women is sacrificed in order to keep the glossy image of a multicultural society intact. It is a chilling demonstration of an Eurabian continent that now appears to care more about not upsetting relations with its immigrant population than about protecting its own citizens.

III. Muslims scholars rejected Greek rationality, observation, which explains natural phenomena, in the ninth century. By the fifteenth century this withdrawal from reality was complete. Muslims explain the real world in terms of Allah’s direct intervention. There is no law of cause and effect. Throw a baseball into the air, it falls, due to Allah, not gravity. The “Death Blossom” explodes when Iraqi security forces spray and pray. Aiming is unnecessary because Allah aims the bullets. For confirmation, see the memoir of SGM Billy Waugh. The bonding of Sodium and Chlorine ions to form salt? Allah performed a miracle!
Abu Hamid Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Ghazali (1058 -1111), second to the Prophet in importance to Islam, was primarily responsible for this development. He taught that there is no certainty apart from revelation found in the Koran. Delusion replaced reason.
Free will, faith and grace, play no part in the Muslim mind. Blind faith, fatalism and occasionalism do. This belief system explains why science and education does not flourish in the Arab world. Among the top 500 universities in the world, there are none in Arab countries. Nearly a third of Arabs are illiterate; most are women. One percent of the books published globally come from the Muslim world. Muslims inhale conspiracies because they can not conceive a trail of causes that lead to an event, like 9/11. In Arab countries, there is no respect for, but fear of the law.
There is nothing spiritual about Islam. Muslims are stuck in the Old Testament where Lord God interacted directly with people, like Adam and Eve. They have no concept of Spirit; they believe Mary is a member of the Trinity. Jesus was not crucified nor was He Resurrected. Like Ebionites, Jewish-Christians, they do not believe in the pre-existence of Christ: Phil. 2:5-11. Allah is Nietzschean, might makes right. French Romantic writer Francois-Rene Chateaubriand wrote in 1811:
Accustomed to follow the fortunes of a master, they have no law that connects them to ideas of order and political moderation: to kill, when one is the stronger seems to them a legitimate right; they exercise that right or submit to it with the same indifference….They don’t know liberty; they have no property rights; force is their God.
Egypt’s economic and social fabric continues to deteriorate. Despite annual growth in gross domestic product of 5 to 6 percent the past few years, there has been little to no trickle-down effect. The obscene gap between rich and poor worsens daily. The middle class has all but disappeared. More than 40 percent of Egyptians live on less than $2 per day. Nearly 30 percent are illiterate – a sad commentary for the culture that, more than 2,000 years ago, gave the world the Library of Alexandria [Hellenism]. In Cairo, a mega-city of more than 15 million, half the population lives in shantytowns next to gated communities that rival the opulence in Southern California.
So far, the movement of women into the service sector has been largely limited to Karachi. Elsewhere across Pakistan, women are still mostly relegated to their homes, or they take jobs in traditional labor settings like women-only stitching factories or girls’ schools, where salaries can be half of those in the service industry. Even the most trailblazing of companies, like KFC, still employ 90 percent men.
Pakistan ranked 133rd out of the 134 countries on the 2010 Global Gender Gap Report’s list of women’s economic participation.
While there is no reliable data on the number of women who specifically enter the service sector, Pakistan’s female work force hovers around 20 percent, among the lowest of any Muslim country.
Taqqiyah is the practice of dissimulation, or lying, to non-believers. The Council on American-Islamic Relations is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. The next time you see their spokesman Ibrahim [(Doug)] Hooper, a Muslim convert, consider his religious background when assessing his credibility. For more Hooper information see:

Don’t blame the West
The ‘root causes’ of Islamist terrorism do not lie in poverty or western imperialism, but an age old conflict between reason and revelation
By Robert Sibley, Ottawa Citizen January 3, 2010
This blog strives for fairness. Muslims exposed to Western values and traditions develop different attitudes and recognize the backwardness of Islam. Muhammad developed his religion because the tribes were backwards and lacked unity. Arabs can hijack planes and fly them into buildings, but they can’t design or manufacture one.
Saudi Writer Calls for Change in Saudi Arabia
MEMRI has just launched its South Asia Studies Project. Be sure to visit the South Asia Studies Project daily at
In a September 8, 2010 article in the daily Al-Hayat, Saudi journalist and writer ‘Abdallah Nasser Al-’Otaibi called for change in the Saudi kingdom that would enable the Saudis to move with the times and attain self-sufficiency in today’s rapidly developing world. He argued that the change must not only involve the renunciation of bigoted religious views in favor of a pluralistic and tolerant outlook, but should embrace all areas of life – including economics, education, science, and art. He stressed, however, that reform programs could not succeed overnight, and also that they must be tailored to the character of the communities in which they are to be implemented.
Following are excerpts from the article:
“It Is Crucial That We Strive to Change, So That We Can Live in the World of the Future”
“Everyone wants change… The Salafis, who think that the Islamic scholarly tradition represents the best way to protect the religion… the liberals, who do not yet know why they are liberals, because they have no characteristics with which to be branded and no programs that can distinguish them from others… the progressives, who believe that the body of the nation can only be cured by stripping it of the remnants of the past … and the reactionaries, who think that the future is pure evil!
“Everyone talks about change from his own perspective. Those who are fanatic in both their religious and social [views] want societies to seal themselves into a bubble in which there is no thought, no research, and no creativity…
And those who are religiously and socially open-minded want [our] societies to instantly adopt the Western way of life – [a process] that required hundreds of years, and many sacrifices, for the West [itself]. These [people] want to [instantly] transfer the Western experience, which places the individual at the center, to the Arab societies, which have sanctified a collective that perpetually crushes the individual.
“Everyone wants change, and that’s a good thing. But what kind of change suits the nature of the people and the times? Is it enough to reassess the general laws that govern our lives? Is it sufficient for us to [employ] the ‘direct method,’ or should we endeavor to bring about change through the ‘indirect method?’ Is it enough for individuals to call for change, or is there a need for government involvement through the use of specialized teams? Will people accept change imposed upon them as a fait accompli, or [will they accept it only] through persuasion and negotiation…? Is it enough to consider social and religious change, or do we need to consider change in economics, sports, arts, sciences, etc?
“[But] the two most important questions are: Do we really need to change, and what awaits us in the future if we do not change?
“To begin with these last two questions, I would say that… it is crucial that we strive to change, so that we can live in the world of the future. If our situation continues as it is today, then our children and grandchildren will not be able to march along with the rest of the peoples of the earth, because, quite simply, they will not have the tools to live in a changing and developing world…
“We must change so that we eat [food] that we ourselves grow, wear [clothes] and ride [in vehicles] that we ourselves manufacture, fly [planes] that we ourselves develop, and communicate [using devices that are the fruit] of our own innovation.”
“Real Change Applies to All Aspects of Our Lives – Including the Transition from Bigotry to a True Understanding of Islam”
“The word ‘change,’ in the Saudi context, for example, does not just mean that Dr. Salman Al-Odeh [must] abandon his hard-line positions and move towards moderate Islam. It does not only mean that Dr. Ayed Al-Qarni [must] renounce his famous exclusionary approach and adopt a position of respecting others and valuing their opinion and beliefs. [And] it does not only mean that many leading figures of the Saudi [Islamic] awakening period [must] shift from their hard-line stance in the direction of tolerance and [free] thinking that understands the needs of reality and its determinants.
“[Rather], real change applies to all aspects of our lives, including the transition from bigotry to a true understanding of Islam. [Moreover,] when we talk about change we should not limit it to the understanding of religion. Rather, we must know that… the Islam of [the Prophet] Muhammad – not Sunni or Shi’ite [Islam], or any other brand – is the religion of reason, which reforms us in this world and then inevitably leads us to Paradise…
“This is the real change that we must seek. It’s good that Dr. Salman Al–Odeh acknowledged, in his well-known TV show ‘Cornerstone’… that change does only mean talking about the change that has occurred in his [views], but means a positive transformation in all domains of life… But are Al-Odeh’s attempts to bring about change through a television program [really] sufficient?
“The answer is obviously no. The issue is larger than television debates that quickly fade from the public’s memory. If we want change, we need to undertake a series of enduring long-term measures that will ensure a lasting transformation in our societies. This means that we should transform [people's] thinking, not [just their] behavior.
“The first measure to be taken is to deal differently with different areas of Saudi Arabia. A change that suits the people of Hijaz does not necessarily suit the people of Al-Najd. Measures of change that can [currently] be realistically implemented in the north may be impossible to implement in the south of the Kingdom.
“Moreover, the successful introduction of a specific change in one region may tempt the people of another region, who originally refused this change, to adopt it. [For example, the notion of] education for girls… was [once] opposed by many people but adopted by others. Years later, the opponents [started] to educate their daughters [too]…
“Secondly, there are some policies of change that the government must impose by force. Initially, people will accept them out of fear of punishment, but in time they will become part of the generally [accepted norms] – if not in [our] lifetime then in the lifetime of [our] children and grandchildren. “The third measure [to be taken] is to change government policies vis-à-vis schools, factories and government departments, and to set a definite timetable for achieving a complete transformation in [our] economic, educational and scientific outlook, in a way that ensures the country’s transition… from a consumer [society] that depends on a [natural] resource… to a country whose existence relies [on the abilities of] its own people…
“Fourth, based on this [principle], the government must set out a five-year reform plan, guided by a number of thinkers in various fields whose task will be to mesh the development plans with the plans for change.
“The fifth and most important measure is to activate the role of the general censorship [apparatus] – and I hope it becomes an [independent government] ministry – in order to ensure a successful process of change free of the ill effects of rumormongers, thieves, and self-seeking opportunists, and in order to keep the [radical] hardliners, the pretended liberals, the progressives, and the reactionaries from controlling the destiny of the country and its people.”

Controversial Muslim cleric caught being smuggled into U.S. over Mexico border
By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 1:04 PM on 28th January 2011
U.S. border guards got a surprise when they searched a Mexican BMW and found a hardline Muslim cleric – banned from France and Canada – curled up in the boot [trunk].
Said Jaziri, who called for the death of a Danish cartoonist that drew pictures of the prophet Mohammed, was being smuggled into California when he was arrested, along with his driver Kenneth Robert Lawler.
The 43-year-old was deported from Canada to his homeland Tunisia in 2007 after it emerged he had lied on his refugee application about having served jail time in France.
His fire and brimstone sermons and rabble-rousing antics catapulted him into the public eye during his short tenure as imam at a Montreal mosque.
He branded homosexuality a disease and led protests over cartoonist Kurt Westergaard’s illustrations poked fun at Islam and were published in a Danish newspaper in 2006.
He also caused anger when he campaigned for a bigger mosque to accommodate Montreal’s burgeoning Muslim population.
But after his deportation he complained that he had been physically and mentally tortured during the 13-hour flight repatriating him to Tunisia, a claim Canadian authorities deny.
He was being held as a material witness in the criminal case against Mr Lawler, who has been charged with immigrant smuggling.
Jaziri had allegedly paid a Tijuana-based smuggling cartel $5,000 to take him across the border near Tecate, saying he wanted to be taken to a ‘safe place anywhere in the U.S.’
According to the court documents, a Mexican guide led Jaziri and a Mexican immigrant over the border fence near Tecate.
They then trekked across the rugged terrain under cover of darkness to a spot popular for drivers who pick up immigrants for smuggling runs into San Diego.
He allegedly told officials he had flown from Africa to Europe, then to Central America and Chetumal, Mexico, on the Mexico-Belize border, where he took a bus to Tijuana.
Lise Garon, a professor of communications at Laval University in Quebec City, told the Los Angeles Times: ‘His nickname in Quebec was the controversial imam.
‘I think he was deported because people hated his ideas.’
His case drew support from the Muslim community as well as Amnesty International after he claimed he would be tortured if sent back to Tunisia.
CAIR chief’s designs to ‘run’ U.S. revealed
‘Who better than Muslims,’ Awad asks, to lead ‘Christian-Judeo-Islamic’ nation?

The same national Muslim leader who’s launched an “education campaign” to quell American fears over Shariah law once gave a full-throated speech to Muslims advocating an Islamic rise to power in America.
In a newly surfaced video of a 2000 speech to the Islamic Society of North America, Council on American-Islamic Relations Executive Director Nihad Awad told his Muslim audience: “Muslims in America are in the best position to show Islam and to show action and to show vision – not only for a Muslim school, how it should be run, but for an entire society, how it should be run. Who better can lead America than Muslims?”
The Justice Department named both ISNA and CAIR unindicted co-conspirators in a criminal scheme to funnel millions of dollars to Hamas suicide bombers and their families.
In the same speech, “Participating in Public Affairs: Strategies for the Year 2000,” Awad encouraged Muslim-Americans to be more assertive with U.S. politicians.
“They should be a servant to our issues,” he said. “We should be respected.”
Specifically, Awad advised that Muslim-Americans demand politicians include in their national speeches and party platforms that America is also an “Islamic society.”
“This is no longer a Christian-Judeo society,” Awad maintained. “It is a Christian-Judeo-and-Islamic society.”
At the same time, Awad reminded Muslim-Americans that they are still, first and foremost, citizens of the global Islamic nation and should do everything in their power to help their Muslim brothers fighting in Kashmir against Indian Hindus and in the Palestinian territories against Israelis.
He suggested they demand U.S. leaders in Washington cut aid to both Israel and India.
“We belong to the ummah, and we are an extension of the Muslim world,” he said. “We should talk about Kashmir, and we should talk about Palestine.”
Islamic law in America
CAIR is suing the state of Oklahoma to block a state constitutional measure banning Shariah law, which was approved by more than 70 percent of Oklahoma voters.
In a press release released last November applauding a Clinton-appointed federal judge’s decision to temporarily bar certification of the popular law, Awad announced CAIR was launching an “education campaign” to inform Oklahomans they have nothing to fear from Shariah law.
Awad said voters were confused by “misinformation about Islam” promulgated by “Islamophobes.”
He added: “CAIR plans an education campaign in Oklahoma to offer state residents accurate and balanced information about Islamic beliefs and practices and about the American Muslim community.”
Critics say CAIR’s leaders are worried about the passage of state constitutional bans on Shariah law, because they have a secret agenda to institutionalize Shariah law in America.
“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” CAIR Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper told a Minneapolis Star-Tribune reporter in 1993, before CAIR was formed. ]
CAIR’s founding chairman, Omar Ahmad, moreover, has flatly argued Shariah law should replace the Constitution.
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant,” he told a Muslim audience in Fremont, Calif., in 1998. “The Quran should be the highest authority in America.”
FBI Director Robert Mueller recently confirmed in congressional testimony that his agency has cut off ties to Washington-based CAIR, citing terror concerns with its national leaders – including Awad.
“We have no formal relationship with CAIR because of concerns with regard to the national leadership,” Mueller testified.
Wiretap evidence from the Holy Land Foundation terror-finance case put Awad at a Philadelpia meeting of Hamas leaders that was secretly recorded by the FBI. Participants hatched a plot to disguise payments to Hamas terrorists as charity. Wiretaps also record them stating the need to deceive Americans about their true aims.
The secret meeting, held in the 1990s at a Courtyard by Marriott hotel, was called to order by CAIR founding Chairman Ahmad. Both he and Awad launched CAIR not long after the meeting.
Mueller confirmed the wiretap evidence during a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing.
The Justice Department also designated Ahmad as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land trial, the largest terror-finance case in U.S. history. A federal jury convicted Holy Land’s leaders on all 108 counts.
Ahmad stepped down from CAIR’s board of directors shortly after his federal designation.
Among other evidence collected by the FBI, the names of both Ahmad and Awad – who remains at CAIR’s helm and regularly appears unopposed on Fox News – appear in a secret phone book alongside key Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzouk, whom the government says directed and coordinated Hamas terrorist attacks on civilians in Israel. Hamas has also murdered 17 Americans and has been listed as a U.S.-designated terror group since the 1990s.
During the Holy Land trial, U.S. prosecutors alleged that CAIR’s ties to Hamas are “ongoing.” In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, assistant FBI Director Richard Power suggested both Ahmad and Awad remain under federal scrutiny.
