Wait. Doesn’t that conflict seriously with what various and sundry GOP advocates are saying?
And aren’t they Conservatives? Aren’t they trying to shame you for attempting to think a bit more in depth about Islam?
Oddly enough, I wrote about this back in 2015, when the Center For Security Policy revealed its discoveries. Please see my two posts, “The Myth of the Moderate Muslim In America,” and “The Myth of the Moderate Muslim in America Pt. II.”
And now from an updated Jihad Watch article, please read this:
51% of U.S. Muslims want Sharia; 60% of young Muslims more loyal to Islam than to U.S.
by Robert Spencer
Really, what did you expect? A considerable portion of U.S. domestic and foreign policy is based on the assumption that Islam in the U.S. will be different: that Muslims here believe differently from those elsewhere, and do not accept the doctrines of violence against and subjugation of unbelievers that have characterized Islam throughout its history. But on what is that assumption based? Nothing but wishful thinking. And future generations of non-Muslims will pay the price.
Precisely, Mr Spencer. Apologists for Islam attempt to striate the difference between Islam in Europe vs Islam in America as the loving embrace of American assimilation.
But what if Muslims don’t or won’t assimilate on either side of the pond?
Do we just make an assumption about the US as opposed to Europe? And wouldn’t Boston, San Bernardino and Orlando have something to do with this “assimilation”?
In berating GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson for suggesting a loyalty test for Muslims seeking high office, CNN host Jake Tapper maintained that he doesn’t know a single observant Muslim-American who wants to Islamize America.
“I just don’t know any Muslim-Americans — and I know plenty — who feel that way, even if they are observant Muslims,” he scowled.
Robert Spencer responded:
Tapper doesn’t get out much. If he did, chances are he’d run into some of the 51% of Muslims living in the U.S. who just this June told Polling Co. they preferred having “the choice of being governed according to Shariah,” or Islamic law. Or the 60% of Muslim-Americans under 30 who told Pew Research they’re more loyal to Islam than America.
Oh come on Spencer. We are told every day, every hour, that so-called “moderate Muslims” have the back of the Average American. It is a lie that Muslims in America are working against us. You’re nothing more than a racist.
Oh wait. Except that “Islam” isn’t a race.
If Tapper did a little independent research he’d quickly find that America’s most respected Islamic leaders and scholars also want theocracy, not democracy, and even advocate trading the Constitution for the Quran.
These aren’t fringe players. These are the top officials representing the Muslim establishment in America today.
So as “major players,” what do they really think and advocate?
• Omar Ahmad, co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the top Muslim lobby group in Washington: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
• CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper: “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.”
• Imam Siraj Wahhaj, director of the Muslim Alliance in North America: “In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing. And the only thing that will remain will be Islam.”
• Imam Zaid Shakir, co-founder of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, Calif.: “If we put a nationwide infrastructure in place and marshaled our resources, we’d take over this country in a very short time. . . . What a great victory it will be for Islam to have this country in the fold and ranks of the Muslims.”…
And there you have it.
What Muslims in America truly think.
“Moderate Muslims” in America?
You tell me.
