In a 1991 document titled, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” the Muslim Brotherhood explains in clear and unambiguous terms exactly what Islam has in store for us. They tell us that the Brotherhood “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Should there be any doubt remaining what terrible fate awaits us if we fail to stem the Muslim tide during the early years of the 21st century? One would think not. If we in the West are to protect our children and grandchildren from spending the rest of this century contending with all the horrors of a brutal 7th century culture, it is imperative that we first dispense with the cruel fiction that Islam is just another religious denomination, subject to all of the legal protections afforded legitimate religious sects.
Islam is not a religion, subject to First Amendment protections, as we in western cultures understand the term. Rather, it is a complete political, legal, economic, military, social, and cultural system with a religious component. Wherever we find them, its adherents refuse to assimilate into host country cultures, insisting that they be allowed to exist as a separate culture within a culture, not subject to the laws of their host countries. In order to accomplish their ends, they rely on anti-western directives of the Quran to preach the overthrow of host governments, by force and violence, if necessary.
Islam made its first major thrust into U.S. politics in 1996 with the election of Keith Ellison in Minnesota’s 5th Cong. Dist. However, after narrowly losing a hard-fought contest to win control of the Democrat Party in 2016, Ellison served for two years as deputy chairman of the DNC before leaving Congress to run for Minnesota Attorney General.
However, following Ellison’s departure from Congress, Islam apparently adopted a more subtle approach to their goal of infiltrating and destroying America from within. Realizing that Islam would have difficulty winning friends and influencing people with fearsome visages such as those of Khalid Sheik Muhammad or Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi staring out at them from TV screens and campaign posters, the Imams recruited two relatively attractive young women, Rashida Tlaib, of Michigan’s 13th congressional district, and Ilhan Omar, of Minnesota’s 5th congressional district, to seek election to Congress, running on the Democrat ticket.
What the American people will soon learn is that, while the two Muslim women appear to be as non-threatening as their non-Muslim female counterparts, when it comes to furthering the cause of Islam in America they are as capable of putting a smile on their faces, while thrusting a dagger into our throats, as are their radicalized brethren. And while Omar’s unabashed verbal attacks on Israel are only a hint of the deep-seated hatred she holds for our most important Middle East ally, she has inadvertently accomplished something that Republicans have failed to accomplish since 1947.
By forcing the Congress to consider a resolution condemning anti-Semitism… a resolution which House Democrats failed to bring to the floor for consideration because they didn’t have the necessary 218 Democrat votes to pass it… Omar has shown Democrats to be the sunshine patriots and the false friends of Israel that they truly are.
But the question arises, how is it possible for any Muslim to be officially seated in the U.S. Congress? Upon taking their seats in Congress, all newly-elected members are required to take an Oath of Office, as prescribed in Title 5, Section 3331 of the U.S. Code. It reads as follows:
“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
So how did our new Muslim congresswomen take that oath, given that their Islamic belief system is totally antithetical to U.S. constitutional principles? As practicing Muslims, they are dedicated to the ultimate overthrow of the U.S. government through any means necessary, including force or violence? Did they speak the words of the oath or did they simply “lip-sync” the oath with their fingers crossed behind their backs? And if they did speak the words, asking that God help them to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States,” are they not now guilty of apostacy in the eyes of the Muslim world?
As Rabbi Aryeh Spero stated in a February 14 article for American Thinker: “(Ms. Omar) and Ms. Tlaib have come to Congress with an unprecedented brazenness, defiance, and impropriety that go beyond mere difference of opinion. Right out of the gate, both women have overridden expected norms as single-minded propagandists eager to use their presence and committee positions as platforms to propagandize against Israel, and Jews who support Israel, by making the heretofore unacceptable now acceptable.”
Past Congresses have not been bashful or reticent in their efforts to protect the people of the United States from internal subversion by agents of foreign governments and foreign ideologies. For example, the McCarran-Walter Act, Section 212(a), provides no less than 31 criteria under which “classes of aliens shall be ineligible to receive visas and shall be excluded from admission into the United States.” The Act reads, in part, as follows:
“Except as otherwise provided in this Act, the following classes of aliens shall be ineligible to receive visas and shall be excluded from admission into the United States:… (28)(F) Aliens who advocate or teach or who are members of or affiliated with any organization that advocates or teaches (i) the overthrow by force, violence, or other unconstitutional means of the Government of the United States… (28)(G) Aliens who write or publish, or cause to be written or published, or who knowingly circulate, distribute, print, or display, or knowingly cause to be circulated, distributed, printed, published, or displayed, or who knowingly have in their possession for the purpose of circulation, publication, distribution, or display, any written or printed matter, advocating or teaching opposition to all organized government, or advocating or teaching (i) the overthrow by force, violence, or other unconstitutional means of the Government of the United States…”
Two years later, the Congress enacted 50 U.S. Code 842, the Communist Control Act of 1954, which denies to any and all subversive organizations “any of the rights, privileges, and immunities attendant upon legal bodies created under the jurisdiction of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof; and whatever rights, privileges, and immunities which have heretofore been granted to said party or any subsidiary organization by reason of the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof, are terminated…”
Are our corrupted law enforcement agencies so consumed by the need to remove Donald Trump from office that they can’t find the time or the courage to enforce laws that are already on the books? If we are to find a solution to the problem of Islamic expansionism in Europe and North America, we must begin by identifying Islam for what it is. Abandoning the political correctness of the political left, it is imperative that we begin by officially defining Islam, not as a religious denomination, but as a brutal 7th century culture totally foreign to and incompatible with 21st century Western values and cultures.
Accordingly, the first step in coming to grips with the Islamic threat is to officially declassify Islam as a protected religion in the hearts and minds of western populations. Roman Catholics, Lutherans, Baptists, and Presbyterians do not stone women to death; they do not behead those who are of a different faith; they do not throw homosexuals from tall buildings; they do not place their enemies in steel cages and lower them into tanks of water, or spray them with gasoline and burn them alive; they do not capture large numbers of women and young girls and sell them into sex slavery; and they do not sexually assault women and girls in public places because they think their style of dress is too suggestive. No, these are atrocities that are unique to the Muslim world. They are not, and can never be, protected religious practices by anyone’s standard.
Islam is the only “religious” movement on Earth that proposes to extend its dominion to every corner of the globe by rape, murder, terror, and oppression. And since the 95% of Muslims who are described as either “moderate” or “un-radicalized” appear unwilling to play an active role in keeping their radicalized brethren in check, we have no long-term alternative but to quarantine them… prohibiting them from residing anywhere within the civilized nations of the Earth.
The mass migration of Muslims from Africa and the Middle East to nearly every nation on the European continent has been likened to an infestation of cockroaches. With the election of the two Muslim congresswomen from Michigan and Minnesota, we can assume that the vanguard of the cockroach infestation has now arrived full force in our nation’s capital. Unless we defeat radical Islam in the deserts of the Middle East and in the streets of Europe in the months and years ahead, they will surely confront us full force at the Statue of Liberty, the Washington Monument, and in the streets of America. If the trend continues, western civilization will be lost forever. We cannot bequeath to our children and grandchildren the prospect of fighting a bloody battle that should have been fought and decided in our time.
