INFILTRATING AMERICA? MUSLIM INFLUENCE GROWING CONCERN
An analysis of current events:
Past View of Issues (1980s-‘90s): In the 1980s Americans heard of conflicts going on in the Middle-East
with only a shrug and a small raise of the brow. “They’ve been fighting for thousands of years” was the sentiment at the time. Terms
such as “ethnic cleansing” were beginning to be tossed about in the news and Americans had no idea what was going on. The filtered
news reports and statements by government officials were so vague that no one understood what the basis of the conflict was.
a suicide bomber drove a truck loaded with the equivalent of six tons of TNT into a four story barracks housing more than 300 military
troops in Beirut, Lebanon. In total the attacks there killed 299 people, including American and French troops. This began raising
eyebrows, but Americans still had no idea of what the conflict was, other than madmen perpetrating a crazed attack.
1990’s government and news reports continued using the term “ethnic cleansing” and occasionally American troops were sent to halt
those that tried to defend against, what is now known as, islamic jihad. Political Correctness began its deceptive practices in the
1990’s and Americans were scrambling for ways to describe events without hurting feelings of the perpetrators of cannibalistic events.
Change (9/11): When the attacks of September 11, 2001 occurred, Americans got a front row seat in the conflict. Slowly but surely
the ideology of islamic influence began coming to light as the U.S. sent troops to Afghanistan to hunt for Osama Bin Laden. At the
same time, the idea of finding a means to invade Iraq was growing in the government. With what was later found to be faulty intelligence,
American forces began an invasion of Iraq in order to take Saddam Hussein from power.
Hussein was a non-practicing muslim. Although
he claimed to be islamic, and although at times appeared for photo shoots as islamic, he was non-practicing. Conflicts in Iraq were
caused by groups in the southern region of the nation being finance by Iran, Hussein’s enemy nation. The “rebel” troops there had
trenched in and perhaps were the cause of the gas that Saddam Hussein used, in order to root out what was later found to be forces
similar to the Taliban. This was all before the invasion by coalition forces. Hussein was also one of the blocking forces of oil pipelines
across the middle east.
Christians In the Middle-East: Reports show that, like Bashar Assad in Syria, Saddam Hussein gave Christian
settlements in Iraq protection against radical islamic groups. Syria had Christian settlements as well that were protected by the
Syrian regime, but have been decimated since the U.S. has begun supporting radical groups there in order to root-out the Assad government.
News articles in 2012 reported on the Assad regime blocking a natural gas pipeline from crossing Syria.
Since the invasion of Iraq,
Christians that remained were left to fend for themselves. After instituting a constitution created partly by the U.S., which included
“separation of church and state”, government forces could no longer guard Christian churches on Sunday morning. Reports on TV shows
like the 700 Club showed deacons of Christian churches suiting up in military garb to stand guard as church services took place. Since
the toppling of the Hussein regime has taken place, radical islamic jihadists have formed a group known as ISIS, which has ran most
Christians from Iraq, or killed them.
Influence In America Grows: Over the past few years, groups like the Republican Muslim Coalition
have risen to offer the influence of islam in American politics. Saba Ahmed, a muslim from Pakistan, has been active in the group
and has appeared on news shows. However, concerns of Ahmed’s ideology have been brought into question. Brigitte Gabriele, a Lebanese
born Christian and American citizen, has been outspoken against the influence of islam in America, including debating Saba Ahmed.
Concerns are growing as to American politics being infiltrated by foreign influence of religion or foreign governments.
In a campaign
speech given December 7, 2015, Donald Trump brought to light a poll which revealed that 25% of muslims in America believe that violence
is justified in America on behalf of islam. 51% of muslims in America believe they should have the right to be governed by sharia
law, which is the extremist ideology in islam. Trump has called for immigration by muslims to be halted until America has a means
of assuring safety from groups that would harm the country.
Republicans and Democrats, especially Progressives, have been very outspoken
against Trump’s proposal to ban immigration by muslims. However, polls show that the American voter may not be at odds with Trump’s
idea, unlike professional politicians and special interest groups. In this election cycle Americans seem to be parting ways with party-line
ideology in order to re-strengthen the United States.
Fatah: In a book by David Jeremiah the term Fatah was revealed. The term used
by muslims is defined: “Fatah (Infiltration): immigrating into a country in numbers large enough to effect the culture, taking advantage
of tolerant laws and accommodative policies, inserting the influence of islam. It is a slow, systematic and unrelenting method.”
term Fatah is relatively unheard of by Americans. News and government officials dare not speak of and ongoing infiltration in the
country and seek polite ways to describe current events, as Political Correctness is the method of the day. Just as the deceptive
term “ethnic cleansing” was used to courteously describe the beheading of “infidels” by muslims, officials and news organizations
seek to smooth over the onslaught of the influence of islam.
With the shooting in San Bernardino, California, Americans are discussing
terrorism here at home. As the current administration assured that ISIS and islmaic jihadists were contained, the attack in California
occurred. At once, the president and Progressives tried to call it a “workplace violence” incident, but as facts came to light, it
was found to be terrorism.
Going Forward: America has become increasingly hostile toward the faith and values of previous generations,
but is left now scrambling to defend its current position of Political Correctness. In order to defeat the current threat of islam
in America, citizens may have to tighten their belts, buckle down, and call a spade a spade and admit that islam may not be the best
dose of medicine that America needs. Of concern is the lack of muslims condemning ISIS ideology, which may be explained by the
poll numbers showing loyalty to sharia by muslims.
Loyalties: With the growth of groups like the Republican Muslim Coalition, and
spokespersons like Saba Ahmed, one wonders where loyalties lie. Should the influence of ISIS grow stronger in the U.S., will moderate
muslims show loyalty to the Constitution of the United States or will they be loyal to sharia law? Over half of muslims in the United
States want to have the ability to institute sharia, which is a concern that Republicans and Democrats will not acknowledge. Unless
it is called for what it is, a threat of security by muslims, America may be doomed. At a minimum, with this Political Correctness
from both ruling parties, America may see more distressing events.
