I watch with frustration the responses by British leaders to the terror attack in London by a Muslim who was born in the UK and converted to Islam in prison. Prime Minister Teresa May said that this latest attack only steels Britain's resolve.
Resolve to do what? Allow another 100,000 Muslims into the country this year? Resolve to open more sharia courts in Britain? Resolve to open their hearts and their borders to so-called Syrian refugees? Resolve not to mention the word "Islam" in connection with terrorist acts?
And then there is the police commissioner who assured the people that London was "safe". Like Hell it is. When you can't walk in front of the Parliament building without being run down by some crazed jihadist on a mission to please Allah, nobody is safe let along those foolish enough to wander into a "no-go" zone. Of course, the commissioner also expressed his fear that Islamophobia would result and promised to work with the local Muslim community, blah blah blah. To do what? Last I checked, nobody is harming a hair on the head of a single Muslim in Britain. Ditto for the rest of Europe and the US. Yet anybody who gets angry when these slaughters occur is branded as a racist. People who organize and protest face the possibility of going to prison in Britain. Just ask Tommy Robinson, ex head of the English Defense League. Frankly, this "Islamophobia" talk offends me. If Christians were carrying out these attacks in Muslim lands, local Christians would be hanging from every lamppost.
Neither May nor her police commissioner ever mentioned the word "Islam" in talking about the latest terror attack and their "resolve".
So we await the next slaughter as we celebrate the diversity and cultural enrichment that this mass Muslim migration to the West has brought us.
That's the problem. So what is the solution?
Islamic immigration, high birth rate and demographic change means that the jihadist murderers are only a part of the eventual Islamization of the West. Europe is on the brink, and the US is only 5-10 years behind. It is time for the West to stop-stop- Islamic migration to our countries. It is not a matter of hate. It is not a matter of blaming all Muslims for what the jihadists do. I have said countless times I don't want innocent Muslims harmed. But this ideology-and that is exactly what Islam is- an ideology of intolerance, violence and supremacy, cannot be allowed to take over the West either by terror or peaceful means. If it happens, sharia law will prevail, and our very freedoms will cease.
Unless Europe starts electing leaders who promise to stop the flow, the continent will be gone within a few decades. It is time for Western countries to sit down with our so-called Islamic allies (Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, etc.) and politely and diplomatically explain to them that until the terror stops, we cannot allow their people to come to the US. That includes student visas as well. It is a simple matter of protecting our people. We can give these countries every incentive to eliminate the problem within their own borders and not care how they do it.
As for the Muslims among us, we have to protect their civil liberties to be sure. Most of them are innocent (even if they are silent). Those who are not citizens should be sent home at the first sign they are radical. Mosques must be closely monitored because many of them are engaging in speech hateful of the West and non-Muslims. Many of those have imams imported from the Islamic world who have no understanding of Western values and freedoms. I am not advocating bugging every mosque, but if there is information available to law enforcement that certain mosques are engaging in subversive speech or activity, the FBI should seek Title III (wiretap) warrants-and FISA warrants if necessary. In addition, organizations like CAIR, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Islamic Society of North America, Islamic Circle of North America, and the Muslim American Society should be investigated thoroughly.
It is also time for our government (at least the previous administration) to stop focusing on those of us who speak out about Islam. It is time for the left-leaning Southern Poverty Law Center to stop labeling us as hate groups. We are not hate groups. We are speaking out against hate.
Finally-and I say this carefully- the Muslims living among us must understand that we are not going to change our values or take away our freedoms, most importantly freedom of speech, in order to spare their feelings. In my mind, it is not enough to condemn a terrorist act, extend condolences to the victims, say that it has nothing to do with Islam, then complain about Islamophobia. Islamist reformers like Zuhdi Jasser can be counted on one hand. We talk about how many thousands of Muslims from the West have gone to join ISIS. How many have gone to Syria or Iraq to fight against ISIS? I have yet to hear of one.
I have long passed the point of even hoping that Islam is an innocent religion hijacked by extremists. The problem is Islamic ideology, which is rooted in the Koran, the hadith, the sunnah, and the life of Mohammad. It is a religion in need of almost total reform. But how do you reform something that is supposed to be perfect? How do you reform Islam without refuting its prophet and much of its holy book? As much as I support people like Zuhdi Jasser, I have no illusions that they can sway more than a few people.What is needed is mass apostasy.
Again, I am not calling for violence or the violation of anyone's true rights. But there is nothing wrong with being angry and expressing that anger within the bounds of the law. There is nothing wrong with standing up and telling people we are not going to be conquered or pushed around.
And there is nothing wrong with telling anyone who wants to live under sharia law to find another country to live in. As far as I am concerned, Islam has no place in the West.
