Islam’s View of the United States (3)
Victor M. Eskew
There is no doubt that Islam views the United States as an enemy. One of its leaders referred to our nation as “The Great Satan.” Muslims have and continue to attack innocent citizens on our own soil. There are many reasons they despise us. We discussed these in our last article. In this article, we want to show our readers how Islam is advancing within our borders. We will see that they are setting things in place to overthrow our nation if we will allow it.
There is one openly anti-American Muslim group in the United States, the Islamic Thinkers Society (ITS). Its headquarters is in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York, New York. It is an offshoot of Al-Muhajiram, a pro-al Qaeda British extremist group. The purpose for their existence is to represent Isalm in its purest form and to represent all of the principles of Islam. One of their major efforts involves implementing Sharia Law in the United States.
Other Muslims organizations found in the United States are not as bold as the ITS. They claim to represent Muslim political interests. There are three main groups at this time: American Muslim Council, The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and The Muslim Affairs Committee. These groups have four main goals in mind. First, they want to win special privileges for Islam. Second, they want to intimidate and silence all the opponents of militant Islam. Third, they want to raise money for the cause of militant Islam abroad, including those individuals who engage in violence. Fourth, they want to sanitize militant Islam in the minds of citizens of the United States. In other words, they want to try to show us that militant Islam is not what it is made out to be.
Islam and its leaders are constantly infiltrating their teachings and practices into the fabric of American society. Their efforts are often seem very small, but small victories over a long period of time become quite large. Too, they are happening in minute ways all over our nation. Here is a brief list of some of the things that have happened to further Islamic beliefs in the United States.
1. Special rooms have been provided in schools and in businesses for Islamic prayer.
2. Special accommodations have been made for Muslims during the month of Ramadan.
3. Some schools have begun teaching Arabic in the classroom.
4. Taxi cab drivers have refused to transport passengers who have dogs.
5. Muslim clerks at grocery stores will not check out customers who are purchasing hams.
6. As many as 100,000 Muslims live in polygamous marriages, even though it is against U.S. law.
7. Muslim prison employees, law enforcement officials, and even a Disney employee, have sued for the right to wear the hijab as part of their uniform.
8. Sharia compliant financial instruments are now offered by Citi Group and AIG.
9. Minnesota offers sharia-compliant mortgages for Muslims. (This is important because mortgages have federal guidelines that regulate them).
Again, these things might seem small and insignificant to many. This, however, is not how Muslims view them. In an article entitled, “Concessions to Islam,” the writer reveals a fact Muslims know, but many U.S. citizens do not seem to understand. “Every accommodation non-Muslims make for Muslims moves our culture, our beliefs, and our legal system one step closer to Sharia law. The concession itself is the establishment of Sharia law” (www.concess.blogspot.com, “Concessions to Islam”). For those who want more detailed information about the infiltration of Islam into our society, they can go to the following website: www.islamist-watch.org).
This writer has seen a bumper sticker on cars that reads: COEXIST. The message that is communicated is that all religions need to co-exist with each other. In our nation, this principle is upheld by the First Amendment to the Constitution. What many fail to understand, however, is that Islam does not want to peacefully exist with other religions. Yes, while it is in the minority, it might appear to co-exist. When the population of Muslims reaches a certain point, they will make a push to take over the nation. They believe they must do this. Their desire is to make Islam the dominate religion of the entire world. Coexisting is just a means to an end for the religion of Muhammad. Let’s close by quoting three passages from the Qur’an that express the desire of Allah for Islam to be the superior religion throughout the world.
Surah 9:33 – It is He Who has sent his Messsenger with guidance and the religion of truth, to make it superior over all religions, though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers) hate (it).
Surah 48:28 – He is is Who has sent His messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, that He may make it superior to all religions. And All-Sufficient is Allah as a Witness.
Surah 61:9 – He it is Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to make it victorious over all religions though the Mushrikun hate it.
