By Nancy Thorner and Bonnie O’Neil –
A much anticipated media announcement let the American people know that Donald Trump would not formally announce his vice presidential choice at a scheduled 11 a.m. news conference on Friday, July 15, but that it was postponed to Saturday, July 16, in light of the deadly attack in Nice, France on Thursday, July 13.
Meanwhile, for two days the media advanced the idea that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a 31-year old Tunisian Muslim, was a “lone wolf” despite his shouts of “Allahu Akahu Akbar: (God is great in Arabic), before being killed in a clear suicide mission. The lone wolf theory was discounted on Saturday, July 16, when the The New York Times reported:
Not one to bow to political correctness, Trump promptly tweeted: “Another horrific attack, this time in Nice, France. Many dead and injured. When will we learn? It is only getting worse.” Trump understands that radical Islam is the cause of the frequent terror happenings world-wide and of the urgency to defeat ISIS before they find their way to America.
What did Trump imply by his words: “When will we learn?”
It was G.W. Bush who called Islam a religion of peace. Of grave and immediate concern is that our present government refuses to call out those who are responsible for the horrific acts of terror namely, Islamic radical terrorists. Although the American people do receive wall-to-wall TV coverage whenever a terrorist act happens in Europe or here at home, many Americans would be surprised to learn that Islam has declared war on the West, the U.S., Jews, Christians, and all “infidels,” that can include specific Muslims who do not share their same interpretation of the Caliphate. Islam’s grandiose plan is to have a world ruled by Muslims under Islamic Law (Sharia), and that freedom and equal rights for all must come to an end.
Erwin W. Lutzer, senior pastor of The Moody Church, in Chicago, Illinois, from 1980 until his retirement in 2016, published a book in 2013 “The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent,” , which examines the growing impact of Islam in relationship to Christianity, noting that where Islam increases, Christianity decreases. Churches in Europe and the United Kingdom are dying out while mosques are growing in number. Religious liberty hangs in the balance worldwide.
In this nation the war with Islam can be traced back to November 4, 1979, the day Iran took US citizens hostage in Tehran and held 52 of them for 444 days. Certainly, 9/11 was the worst single terrorist event on American soil. However, all non Muslim countries are vulnerable to terrorist attacks. Unless all democratic nations acknowledge that all radical terrorist groups have a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam and are a threat to world safety, American citizens are in danger. It is not preposterous to suggest that the United States and the free World are in the cross hairs of Islam, and its goal is to see the Islamic flag over the White House and beyond.
Not all Muslims are terrorists
It would be a misrepresentation to suggest that the war is with all Muslims, because only a minority of Muslims are fundamentalists. Muslims number 1.6 billion people worldwide — reports do vary — representing 23% of the global population. The overwhelming majority (87-90%) of Muslims are Sunnis; about 10-13% are Shia Muslims.
According to Victor David Hanson, 10% of Muslims worldwide support ongoing terrorist movements, which still comprise a large enough pool to aid and abet terrorism, either by giving moral and financial support or by acting as pressure groups within mostly autocratic political systems. Here in the U.S. the Pew Research Center report estimates there were about 3.3 million Muslims of all ages living in the United States in 2015. This means that Muslims made up about 1% of the total U.S. population (about 322 million people in 2015), which is expected to increase to 2% by 2050. Another study estimates the number to be at five million or about the size of the Hispanic population 27 years ago, but it is growing six times faster than the national rate, thanks to their high rates of birth, immigration, and conversions.
A shocking poll of U.S. Muslims
A survey of Muslims published by the Center for Security Policy in June of 2015, points to a serious problem in this nation and should raise a big red flag: A majority (51%) of Americans agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah and not by the U.S. Constitution. 51% likewise believe that they should have the choice of either an American or a Shariah court. Even more troubling is the fact that nearly a quarter of the Muslims polled believed that it is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed. Nearly one-fifth of Muslim respondents said that the use of violence in the United States is justified in order to make Shariah the law of the land in this county. Yet according to Hillary, if she becomes president she wants to resettle one million more Muslim migrants her first term alone! Have our schools been negligent in teaching about our immigration laws? We welcome immigrants, but they are expected to embrace our laws, our culture, and our country when they leave theirs behind.
Muslims did try to pass Sharia law in Alabama, but citizens said “Hell No.” Islamization of America is accelerating and gaining momentum, in tandem with the spread of Sharia law in America’s courts, through the Islamization of the American media that presents Islam as a peaceful religion in both the political world and in education. Dearborn, Michigan, has the largest concentration of Muslims in the U.S. With a populationof around 98 thousand people, roughly 30% of its residence are Muslims.
What is the tipping point for Muslim to dominate?
In his book Slavery, Terrorism, and Islam, Peter Hammond unveils a detailed analysis on the proportion of Muslims to the overall population and found increased violence and adherence to Sharia law. Hammond’s research paints a horrifying picture of the future of civilization. When the Muslim population remains at or under 2%, their presence tends to fly low under the radar. In the 2% – 5% range, Muslims begin to seek converts, targeting those they see as disaffected, such as criminals. etc.
Mark Steyn, in this video, puts the tipping point for Muslim domination at 20%. As the Muslim percentage of the population rises, violence against non-Muslims, terrorism, and disorder increases. This can be observed now in Europe where the Muslim population is rising 10 times faster than the rest of society
Worth reading is Steyn’s book published in 2008, “America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It”. In recounting the influx of Muslims into Europe in 2008, the book is prophetic in predicting what would result when Muslims gained power through demographics. Muslims were described as “breeding like rabbits.”
Warnings by FBI and CIA are counter to political correctness
In October of 2015, FBI director James Comey said during a House Committee on Homeland Security hearing that the federal government does not have the ability to conduct thorough background checks on all of the 10,000 Syrian refugees that the Obama administration says will be allowed to come to the U.S. Fast forward to June of this year, at which time CIA Director Brennan affirmed that ISIS is slipping into the country among the refugees under the Refugee/Resettlement plan sponsored by the United Nations.
Gingrich’s remarks align with what Americans believe
Former Speaker of the House New Gingrich stated that the Syrian refugees cannot be properly vetted and that 51% of Muslims living in this nation believe they should have a choice of being governed according to Shariah law rather that than our the Constitution. Newt Gingrich still faced a barrage of criticism from President Obama and others for a comment he made on Thursday night, July 14, during an interview on Fox News when interviewed by Sean Hannity hours after a truck driven by a terrorist rampaged through a Bastille Day celebration in Nice.
“Let me state where I am coming from and let me be as blunt and direct as I can be — western civilization is in a war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported,” Gingrich said. “Sharia is incompatible with western civilization. Modern Muslims who have given up Sharia — glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door. But we need to be fairly relentless about who our enemies are.”
Newt acknowledged the next day that mass “deportation is impossible” with American citizens. In addressing President Obama’s criticism of his remark, Gingrich didn’t mince words, stating that Obama had forfeited his right to criticize because after eight years, the President still has no plans to defeat radical Islam. He also challenged Obama on the handling of Syrian refugees coming to the U.S.
The belligerent response over Gingrich’s remark are out of step with how registered voters view Sharia: Opinion Savvy polled a random sample of 803 registered voters from June 19 to June 20, 2016, and found that seventy-one percent believe that supporters of Sharia should be identified before they are admitted into the US. An even greater percentage, 80%, believe that supporters of Sharia should not be admitted into the U.S.
