Islam and America are fundamentally and totally incompatible: As Andrew Bostom writes, polling data from Wenzel Strategies reveals that 58% of Muslims in the United States do not believe "that criticism of Islam or Muhammad should be permitted" - IN AMERICA. In other words, they flatly reject the First Amendment of our Constitution. Which means they reject America.
To allow Islamic ideology to take root in America is to nurture a parasite which will eventually destroy its host.
Additionally, 45% of Muslims in America believe that those who do criticize Islam or Muhammad should face "criminal charges," and 12% of Muslims in America believe that anyone who criticizes Islam should be put to death.
Think about that. Almost half of the Muslims in America would throw Christians in prison if they could, simply for telling them the truth about Islam, and 1 out of every 8 Muslims you meet in America think you should have your head cut off for doing such a thing.
And 43% believe it should be illegal IN THE UNITED STATES for a Christian to share his faith with a Muslim, while 32% firmly believe that Sharia - not our Constitution - should be "the supreme law of the land in the US."
This illustrates the sad, disturbing and lethal fact that, while there may be moderate Muslims, there is no such thing as moderate Islam. A disturbingly large number of so-called "moderate" Muslims in the U.S. would like to rule us with an iron fist if they could. What they lack is not the will but only the power.
Bottom line: Islam and America cannot coexist in the same space. Islam will not permit it.
Clearly there is no effort being made by the majority of Muslims in America to assimilate to our culture and embrace our values. They are here, not to adapt to us, but to force us to adapt to them. To accommodate Islam in America is to commit societal suicide.
The only thing that is stopping these Muslims from imposing their Sharia ideology on us is not principle but a lack of power. In other words, they have not been persuaded to embrace liberty by breathing our free air. No, they are just biding their time until they can take us over from within.
It is sheer folly for us to continue willy-nilly to allow virtually unrestricted immigration from Muslim majority lands. We are committing cultural hari-kiri, and no one who cares about the future of America can watch it happen and remain silent.
