The Effects of Mass Muslim Immigration
It was reported Monday that “almost 10 per cent of children under five years old in England and Wales come from a Muslim family, according to 2011 UK Government census information.”
The report continued, “Of the 3.5 million children aged less than five, 320,000 were listed as Muslim. By comparison, Christians make up 43 per cent of those aged under five.”
What is the problem with that? The enemedia would tell you that anyone who thinks this is something to be concerned about is a racist. But this is not really a question of race at all; it’s a question of assimilation. Hindus, Buddhists, South Asians, Africans--all kinds of people have come to the U.K. and the U.S. and had little trouble adapting to their new country. But Muslims are the first group to come as immigrants to the West determined to replace Western government and social structures with Islamic ones. Millions of Muslims come to Western countries with a ready-made model of society and government (sharia) which they believe to be superior to what we have here, and they work to institute it.
What happens to a country when its imports a colonizer force or hostile invader? In Dr. Peter Hammond’s book, Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat, he explains that as Muslim populations grow, so do demands for special accommodation to Sharia. When Muslims number less than two percent of the population, as they do in the U.S. now, they’re generally peaceful and tolerant. As the Muslim population grows, however, so do the demands (as we’re seeing now): for halal meat, Sharia courts, and more.
As the Muslim population grows, so does violent intimidation and lawlessness--an example being the Sharia-ruled areas all over Europe, where the governing authorities have essentially lost control. After Muslim populations reach 20%, we see rioting, jihad militias, church burnings, and worse--and once it reaches 40%, there are massacres and frequent jihad terror attacks, as we have seen in recent years in Bosnia, Chad, and Lebanon.
Beyond that, when Muslims are the majority, there is Sharia-based discrimination against and persecution of non-Muslims, and sometimes even genocide of non-Muslims, as we have seen in Bangladesh and elsewhere, which may be coming in Egypt and Syria today.
And we regularly see the poison fruit of importing whole Muslim communities into the West: al Qaeda “refugees” handling heavy weapons and living on welfare in Kentucky; a Muslim in Canada beheading his four sons; Muslims living in the U.S. waging jihad elsewhere; and so much more, as I laid out in detail in this article.
It is not because of “racism,” but because of all this that there is now “record support” for severe curbs on immigration in the U.K. But the British government is so deeply compromised that it has now allowed several Muslim Brotherhood leaders to settle in London, which they consider a “safe city” from which to launch their attempt to regain power in Egypt. This is the same British government that banned Robert Spencer and I from entering Britain, right after it allowed in Saudi hate preacher Mohammed al-Arefe, who has said:
Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight.
That’s fine with the British government, but our fight for free speech and individual rights isn’t.
Hammond predicted that after the Muslim population reaches twenty percent, “nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues.” In the U.K. today we see almost parallel societies: no go zones, forced marriages, clitoridectomies. So what will the fact that already one in ten British children are Muslims? What does that mean for an increasingly Islamized England?
We already see the most devout and extreme Muslims coming out of the U.K. and waging jihad in Syria. The new survey also says that the percentage of Muslims younger than five is almost double that of non-Muslims, while Muslims over 85 years old are fewer than one in 200: a vivid illustration of how rapidly Britain is being Islamized.
This will not end well. The British and every freedom loving people won’t like what comes after Western civilization.
