Radical Islam Is Growing in the US: Wheres the American Anger? by Thomas D. Segel
It is very difficult to understand why Americans are not enraged at the thought of any radical Islamic movement, particularly in the United States. But, being unconcerned seems to be an understatement, for Islam is rapidly expanding in this country and there is already evidence that from evening prayer to the teachings of Islamic schools the tone is anti-American and anti-Christian.
We have already seen the growth of the Muslim faith in Europe. Even in England there are already calls for the country to adopt the edicts of Islamic Law.
Most have not taken the time to even learn what Islamic or Sharia Law would mean, if it became embedded in our society.
For men, radical Islam means a ban on listening to music, watching movies, television or videos. There would be a ban on celebrating any non-Muslim holiday. All people with non-Islamic names would be required to adopt an Islamic name. All men and boys would be required to have traditional haircuts and when able, they must grow beards. Prayers at mosques must be attended five times daily. They are banned from having birds and dogs. No kite flying is allowed. Anyone found with objectionable literature can be executed. No hand clapping is allowed at sporting events. The use of the Internet is banned accept by government permission. Non-Muslims must where distinctive identifying badges.
For women, all of the above apply, except for beards. In addition women are banned from working outside the home, except for selected female doctors. Women cannot leave the home unless accompanied by a male relative or husband. They cannot drive a car or deal with shopkeepers. Male doctors cannot treat them. Women must where undecorated clothing that covers them from head to foot.
A woman can be whipped if her ankles show in public. She is banned from shaking hands, laughing loudly, wearing high heeled shoes, playing sports, speaking on radio or TV, riding a bicycle or motorcycle and must not wear perfume. The womans clothing cannot resemble a mans clothes. Their shoes cannot make a sound when they walk. They cannot talk to men other than family and when they do talk it must be in a very low voice. They must not look at strangers.
For a woman, the breaking of any of these bans can result in punishment. For example, in Saudi Arabia a woman found to have nail polish on her fingers, had the fingertips cut off. More severe infractions can result in a death sentence.
Granted, we are addressing the rules of radical Islam. But from where did it originate and why havent the so-called moderate or peaceful Muslims done something to stop these extremes? But, why be concerned. This could never happen in America. Right!?
For those who think there should be no concern about the rapid expansion of the Islamic faith in the United States, consider the following:
In 1960 we had 20 mosques in the United States. By 1994 that number had grown to 962 and in 2000 there were 1,209. Today an estimated 2,300 mosques, plus storefronts, meeting rooms and student centers are spread across the country. These mosques and centers are used as a form of political and social mobilization, under the cloak of religion.
More than 90% of Muslim leaders say they should be involved in the political process and it should be noted they are increasingly assuming positions within the public arena.
For some strange reason, when viewing the growth of Islam in the United States, Americans are about as complacent as they are relative to most political activities.
Though reported on back in 2002 that Every time you fill up your tank you may be helping to finance an Islamic mosque in America and that Some of the largest mosques and Islamic Centers in America are funded by the royal government of Saudi Arabia, which gets most of its revenue from oil exports, we have still continued to ignore the fact that we are facing a serious problem.
Our government keeps telling us that Saudi Arabia is our friend. This flies in the face of undisputed facts including that 15 of the 19 hijackers who crashed aircraft into New York and Washington DC were Saudi citizens. It also ignores the fact that the Saudi government continues to finance the advancement of Wahhabism, one of the most violent and fundamentalist strains of Islam and that most Saudi citizens adhere to this anti-American sect.
In the past 33 years the Saudi government has poured more than $87 billion into expanding the Muslim faith in America. There are an estimated 6 million Muslims in the United States today and many of them were converts from Christianity or had no prior religious preference. It is estimated that up to 90% of the converts are African-American.
While 64% of Saudis have an unfavorable view of the United States, 57% of the black Muslims in America look upon this country as an immoral society. A full 70% of our American black Muslims believe the United States brought about the attacks of 9/11.
This is not random speculation. Homeland Security has conducted an undercover survey of mosques and Islamic schools across the United States. It has found that 3 out of 4 mosques preach anti west extremism, widespread radicalism and all things anti American.
Undercover counterterrorism agents who speak Arabic and understand the culture have conducted reconnaissance at some 2,300 mosques and centers in every state of the union. A recent Freedom House study concluded that the vast majority are inciting insurrection and jihad through sermons by Saudi-trained imams and anti-Western literature, videos and textbooks.
However, when members of the media, or political candidates bring up the subject of this growing threat, they are branded as practicing racial profiling, anti-Muslim or unpatriotic. Government officials keep telling everyone that the Muslim world is friendly, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary. The majority in Congress force the nation into Arab oil servitude, by refusing to allow serious drilling in our own country and spending more time trying to make the enemy out of Big Oil, instead of Middle Eastern threats.
All of this will continue to unfold, from the American advancement of Islam to the flow of more Middle Eastern money to advance terrorism...and all because Americans spend their time being angry at our own politicians and have little or no concern about an every increasing threat being imported from abroad.

“Today an estimated 2,300 mosques, plus storefronts, meeting rooms and student centers are spread across the country. These mosques and centers are used as a form of political and social mobilization, under the cloak of religion.”
Interesting. The number almost doubled under Bush. I wonder if all that “Islam is the Religion of Peace” talk has anything to do with it? /s
There are days when I wonder if this nation is worth defending.
This is one of them.
Hey! Let's elect some more Democrats!
I am angry but that does not help a bit. Political Correctness fawned by the liberals has brought us to this.
I would have closed the country to all Muslims after 9-11 but I have no say...I would send the radical ones who demand we give them footbaths etc home asap where their religion is normal. Why do they want to come here anyway? If we have all these things that are against their beliefs they don't belong here IMHO. Muslims need to adapt to the American way of life or stay the h-ll out of OUR country.
Wheres the American Anger? It’s missing because..........most of these people are idiots! My view of them will be confirmed if they elect Obama. And they will get what’s coming to them as a result, and it isn’t going to be pretty. Stupid never takes a holiday.
They’ll see some anger in November.
seems most people would rather ‘charge at the mall’ than consider the danger we face as a nation. Now is the time for diligence and remembering that history, when ignored, will repeat itself. ie: pre-war Germany
Islamic Fundamentalist Networks in the United States
After 9/11, Bush should deployed the troops from Korea to the northern & southern borders. And every foreign muzzie & illegal alien should have been deported.
We didn’t allow German-American Bunds to operate in America during WWII; we shouldn’t allow foreign mosques to operate here now!
Either we are at war or we aren’t!
But one more terrorist attack in America and every muzzie swinging dick will have to pack up his koran & family and go back to whatever hellhole he originated from.
Our ancestors didn’t risk life & limb to emigrate to this country just so a bunch of camel jockeys could come here, terrorize our women & children and make hamburger out of our families!
“America is not at war. The Marine Corps is at war; America is at the mall.”
“The sheep look up”
Nobody, and I mean nobody with any power will dare to bring up the discussion.......
......because if they do, they will be immediately branded a islamophobe racist and a major scumbag.....they most likely would lose their job, most of their friends and be hit with a major lawsuit brought by CAIR.
What they understand, and I understood a long time ago is that it is going to take another major attack on the U.S. by islam lunatics before anybody,who can do something offically about it, will be motivated to act. My view is that when the time comes for another official American action, it most likely will be in the form of a PC "war" where we don't really intend to hurt anybody.
My friends, it is clear to me that if elimination of radical islam is to be made here, "we the people" most likely will have to do it.
for later reading
Al this is happening because our government is insane, ignoring all these realities in favor of their half-witted globalism and pretense that all cultures are equally valuable.
As the years pass, more will realize what a monumental disaster the Bush years have been.
To convert us. If they can't do then, then they want to kill us.
And Mr. Segel’s solution is???
Islam should be illegal. Its a cult.
Oh I forgot, just calm down.
“Wheres the American Anger? Its missing because..........”
Because of cowardice.
Islam today is making more rapid progress in the West than during the Middle Ages.
Anis Shorrosh, author of ''Islam Revealed'' and ''The True Furqan,'' is a Christian Arab-American who emigrated from Arab-controlled Jerusalem in January 1967.
''The following is my analysis of Islamic invasion of America, the agenda of Islamics and visible methods to take over America by the year 2020,'' Shorrosh says. ''Will Americans continue to sleep through this invasion as they did when we were attacked on 9/11?''
1. Terminate America's freedom of speech by replacing it with statewide and nationwide hate-crime bills.
2. Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities who promote Islam as the religion of African-Americans while insisting Christianity is for whites only. What they fail to tell African-Americans is that it was Arab Muslims who captured them and sold them as slaves. In fact, the Arabic word for black and slave is the same, ''Abed.''
3. Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, debates in colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same monotheistic faith.
4. Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office to bring about favorable legislation toward Islam and support potential sympathizers by block voting.
5. Take control of as much of Hollywood, the press, TV, radio and the Internet as possible by buying the related corporations or a controlling stock.
6. Yield to the fear of the imminent shut-off of the lifeblood of America black gold. Americas economy depends on oil and 41 percent of it comes from the Middle East.
7. Yell ''foul, out-of-context, personal interpretation, hate crime, Zionist, un- American, inaccurate interpretation of the Quran'' anytime Islam is criticized or the Quran is analyzed in the public arena.
8. Encourage Muslims to penetrate the White House, specifically with Islamics who can articulate a marvelous and peaceful picture of Islam. Acquire government positions and get membership in local school boards. Train Muslims as medical doctors to dominate the medical field, research and pharmaceutical companies. (Ever notice how numerous Muslim doctors in America are, when their countries need them more desperately than America?) Take over the computer industry. Establish Middle Eastern restaurants throughout the U.S. to connect planners of Islamization in a discreet way.
9. Accelerate Islamic demographic growth via:
Massive immigration (100,000 annually since 1961).
Use no birth control whatsoever every baby of Muslim parents is automatically a Muslim and cannot choose another religion later.
Muslim men must marry American women and Islamize them (10,000 annually). Then divorce them and remarry every five years since one can't legally marry four at one time. This is a legal solution in America.
Convert angry, alienated black inmates and turn them into militants (so far 2,000 released inmates have joined al-Qaida worldwide). Only a few ''sleeper cells'' have been captured in Afghanistan and on American soil.
10. Reading, writing, arithmetic and research through the American educational system, mosques and student centers (now 1,500) should be sprinkled with dislike of Jews, evangelical Christians and democracy. There are currently 300 exclusively Muslim schools in the U.S. which teach loyalty to the Quran, not the U.S. Constitution. In January of 2002, Saudi Arabias Embassy in Washington mailed 4,500 packets of the Quran and videos promoting Islam to America's high schools free of charge. Saudi Arabia would not allow the U.S. to reciprocate.
11. Provide very sizable monetary Muslim grants to colleges and universities in America to establish ''Centers for Islamic studies'' with Muslim directors to promote Islam in higher-education institutions.
12. Let the entire world know through propaganda, speeches, seminars, local and national media that terrorists have hijacked Islam, when in truth, Islam hijacked the terrorists.
13. Appeal to the historically compassionate and sensitive Americans for sympathy and tolerance towards Muslims in America who are portrayed as mainly immigrants from oppressed countries.
14. Nullify America's sense of security by manipulating the intelligence community with misinformation. Periodically terrorize Americans with reports of impending attacks on bridges, tunnels, water supplies, airports, apartment buildings and malls.
15. Form riots and demonstrations in the prison system demanding Islamic Sharia as the way of life, not America's justice system.
16. Open numerous charities throughout the U.S., but use the funds to support Islamic terrorism with American dollars.
17. Raise interest in Islam on America's campuses by insisting freshman take at least one course on Islam.
18. Unify the numerous Muslim lobbies in Washington, mosques, Islamic student centers, educational organizations, magazines and papers by Internet and an annual convention to coordinate plans, propagate the faith and engender news in the media.
19. Send intimidating messages and messengers to the outspoken individuals who are critical of Islam and seek to eliminate them by hook or crook.
20. Applaud Muslims as loyal citizens of the U.S. by spotlighting their voting record as the highest percentage of all minority and ethic groups in America.
Shorrosh is a member of the Oxford Society of Scholars, has traveled in 76 countries, and is a lecturer and producer of TV documentaries. ''Islam Revealed'' is a bestseller now in its eighth printing. His forthcoming 10th book, from which the 20-point plan is abridged, is titled ''Islam: A Threat or a Challenge.''
''The True Furqan'' is also available for viewing on Islam-Exposed.org. Shorrosh's new website is Focusing-on-Islam.com.
I moved from Dearborn last year, and could not wait to get out of there. Driving down Shafer, you cannot read the store fronts because they are in Arabic. I had to drive half an hour to the doctor instead of two minutes, because the population would not go to a Jewish doctor. I was sneered at and looked down upon, as I wasn’t covered. Worse in the summer, if I wore shorts. Now, they are building a Mosque two miles from where I am in Louisville, Kentucky. Wake up people!
Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur'an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth"
-- Omar Ahmed, Chairman of the Board of CAIR (Council of America)
Next, we will take arms against our crooked politicians.
“Wheres the American Anger?”
Hiding behind Political Correctness.
Most of the members of this mosque were jail house converts too. I paid my builder to work faster to get out of there asap. I remember thinking back then we are in for a world of trouble with these people.
>>I don’t have the answers but I do believe most American will revolt, I just hope they do before its too late.
I agree, and Amen.
Sadly even as we fight for the free lives we live here, half the battle will be fighting other so-called Americans who think that we need to show our enemies more love and compassion...
You’re absolutely right, though — it’s going to get bloody, but it’s being fought and lost on desktops and in courtrooms, long before it hits the battlefields of a defiant and righteous America.
>>Islam today is making more rapid progress in the West than during the Middle Ages.
Because in the middle ages they didn’t have politically corrected idiots preventing them from riding out and taking up arms against the cockroaches.
Of course not. Just look at what happened this week when talk
radio host Bill Cunningham dared to mention Oboomboom’s middle name.
It may have not been relevant but the MSM went crazy, and so did a number of Freepers.
America has been dumbed down to the lowest level in history.
Well those sheeple better wake up asap! Love & compassion aren't going to save their heads. Denial is such an easier place for so many people to live it seems.
There's the problem and should IMO be the point of focus. If you get into issues of what they must wear and hairstyles and prohibition against TV and movies, you have also ventured into Christian groups. Many, many Mennonite churches do not allow members to have TV, movies, etc. The women do not work outside the home, etc. They also happen to be some of the absolute finest people I have met in my life, ever, and they most certainly do not preach and advocate rebellion, insurrection, and holy war. The same could be said for plenty of other religious groups that might be deemed eccentric. Islam and Islam alone stakes out that ground, period.
As for dealing with it, it will not be dealt with until it blows up in our face. That's it. As I've said countless times, every aspect of this country--most certainly including its defense--is controlled by the iron fist of political correctness.
That political correctness is essentially defined as being in opposition to any Judeo-Christian and/or traditional American value or practice. 99.99999% of our leaders bow at the PC altar. 100% of the MSM bow at the PC altar. And while the majority of Americans don't bow, we do something just as bad: We go along to get along with those who do, and it is going to blow up in our face in a cataclysmic way.

You are absolutely right...and the “conservative” response is to nominate a liberal for president.
It is directed toward Christians by the main stream media.
And there is one named hussein running for potus. It is time to call for the return of the state or local militia. At some point in time, we will not be protected from the onslaught of this radical religion. We will be told to embrace it based on the desire for diversity. Not me, a 9mm will talk for me....
I hav’nt seen one of those footy washing things yet, but when I do, I’ll proudly pee in it. :-)
Because of all the stupid sheep that call themselves citizens who have absolutely zero real faith in anything but government.
The years of alienating Christianity are now paying off for the One-Worlders.
Repeat after me: “Christianity = BAD, Islam is the Religion of Peace®. Christianity is the religion of radial hate, Islam is the Religion of Peace®.”
I now have to go vomit...
Islam is not a religion in the way that we recognize religion.
Islam is a political movement which uses religion was its ideological foundation.
I go by this standard when assessing political and religious beliefs: “By their fruits you shall know them.” By that standard, Islam is rotten to the core.

“There are days when I wonder if this nation is worth defending.”
Oh, the nation is worth it, but a lot of its residents are not deserving of the effort we must put forth to achieve it. In a nutshell: Would I fight to save a libtard who wants to welcome islam into our midst from the scourge that islam has in store for him or her? No. But I’d fight islam in spite of that, though I wouldn’t give a rat’s ass if the libtard somehow fell in the struggle.
“My friends, it is clear to me that if elimination of radical islam is to be made here, ‘we the people’ most likely will have to do it.”
That’s a fact.
“I think Americans will wake up & its going to be a bloody war. That is if they don’t grab all our guns.”
When they try to grab out guns is when the war really starts. I think it was Thomas Jefferson who said (and I’m probably paraphrasing): “The Second Amendment is for when they try to take it away.”
