America Beware!
Jihad Watch ^ | 2 December 2006 | Stella L. Jatras

It is certainly no surprise that "Sharia law is spreading as authority wanes" in Britain, as reported in The Telegraph (UK) of 29 November. All the signs of this eventuality were there. Are we ignoring those same signs in this country?

Today in Britain there are more practicing Muslims than there are practicing Anglicans, the religion that saw Britain through two world wars. English history and culture are slowly disappearing. The Observer of 4 November 2001 reported a statement by Omar Bakri, the jihad leader formerly based in Britain: "We will replace the Bible with the Koran." A demonstration held outside of British Parliament some years ago carried signs that read, "Islam. Our religion today, your religion tomorrow." Banks in Britain no longer give out piggy banks to customers for fear of offending the Muslim community. Melanie Phillips provides harrowing details of the transformation of Britain in her book Londonistan, about which jihad expert Steve Emerson writes, "Londonistan is one of the most compelling books you will ever read on the ascendancy of Islamic fundamentalism, violence and intimidation in the West."

Islam has been further spread in Britain with the help of Bonnie Prince Charlie, who has introduced more Islamic studies into their schools. This is ironic, since Queen Elizabeth and her heirs have the title "Defender of the Faith," i.e., Anglicanism. In his commentary, "Is Prince Charles a Convert to Islam?," Daniel Pipes writes, "In a 1997 Middle East Quarterly article titled 'Prince Charles of Arabia,' Ronni L. Gordon and David M. Stillman looked at evidence that Britain's Prince Charles might be a secret convert to Islam." They found a good deal in that evidence that was compelling.

It appears that the metamorphosis from Christianity to Islam in Britain is happening quickly -- faster than anyone could ever have imagined.

Some historical background can be found in Robert Spencer's book entitled The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades), which is an excellent account of what we should know about Islam and what we face as Christians. Chapter nine of the book is entitled, "Islam--Spread by the Sword? You Bet." To that I say, "Why do you think there is a sword on the flag of Saudi Arabia?" The renowned historian Bat Ye'or has also written extensively on the transformation of non-Muslim societies into Islamic societies. Her book The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam from Jihad to Dhimmitude should be required reading in Britain today. The word, "Dhimmitude," is defined in The Jerusalem Post, of 2 January 1997, as "the Arabic-root term to identify the dehumanized condition of Christians and Jews under the humiliating domination of Moslem power." Is this then to be the legacy the British, Europeans in general, and we in America leave our children and grandchildren if we continue down the path of self-destruction? What ever happened to "Onward Christian Soldiers"?

Don't think that what is happening in Britain, France (which, I might add, is a basket case, pretending that they do not have problems with their Muslim youth), and all over Europe cannot happen in America. Even former Secretary of State Colin Powell once remarked that the U.S. should bring in more clerics, more teachers and more journalists from Islamic nations, without ever suggesting that such new immigrants be screened for jihadist sentiments. There are public schools in California that require students learning about Islam to recite verses from the Koran, dress as Muslims, state their own jihad and pray to Allah (Washington Times, 16 January 2002). Schools throughout the United States provide prayer rooms for Muslim students during their one month of Ramadan, while for decades judges have told us that our own Christian children cannot even bend their heads to say a prayer over their school lunches. It appears that Christ is out of our schools – and Muhammad is in.

Can Islamization and dhimmitude happen here? A Washington Post article of 15 November 2001 entitled “Bountiful, Blessed Month” reported that the 35 children of the Clara Muhammad School in Southeast Washington began their classes with the reading of the Koran followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. During the Pledge students recited: “One nation under Allah, indivisible, with justice and liberty for all, inshallah [Allah willing]." Is this a minor difference? Perhaps not. Daniel Pipes has noted that “the ambition to take over the United States is hardly a new one. The first Islamic missionaries from abroad arrived in the 1920s and unblushingly declared, 'Our plan is, we are going to conquer America.' Such hopes have become commonplace in recent years." In Hamtramck, Michigan the noise ordinance was amended to allow the Islamic call to prayer to sound over loudspeakers at several points during the day.

Meanwhile, Muslim power in the U.S. will continue to grow. Muslims in Michigan can thank former Republican Senator Spencer Abraham for their exceedingly high numbers. In his failed bid for re-election, Senator Abraham stated that if reelected he would increase the quota for bringing in more Muslims into the United States. A convert to Islam, Democrat Keith Ellison of Minnesota has become the first Muslim to be elected into Congress.

And while Muslim influence grows, anti-terror efforts wane. Was the recent high-profile incident of imams being taken off a US Airways flight and now threatening to sue the airline merely a dry run, a test of our homeland security at airports? Or was it an attempt to end scrutiny of Muslims in airports? By playing the part of the victim, was it an effort to intimidate airline security into giving them a pass on future flights by officials not wanting to be accused of racial profiling?

Sounds plausible!

I agree with Big girl to a point. I have seen several polls over the years taken in any European countries and America and the differences between the two are profound. Example, most Americans by near 90% believe in God and consider themselves Christian. Much lower in Europe. Also, according to polls, most Americans are supportive of Israel, most Europeans support the Palestinians. If the Muslims and their supporters overreach, there will be a backlash. Unfortunately, today is not that day.

This is one issue that I agree with "liberal" feminists. Sharia law restricts women's participation in society as equal members.

I read While Europe Slept and thought it was a book that everyone should read.

Why? Here's a guy who thinks that he's going to move to the European liberal paradise where he can be "gay and proud" and not have any problems, then he learns that this "liberal paradise" has turned intolerant due to an influx of Muslims and the Islamic beliefs against homosexuality and Western norms and values. I found it really insightful.

If Americans would do more of what I believe America was blessed to do, it would go along way to help. That is to support the preaching of the gospel to all of the nations.

A pastor friend of mine from Nairobi told me that after 911 many Americans quit coming to Africa because of fear. That gave the Muslims a big opportunity to move in with money etc to win many converts.

So many churches and church goers go no further with their Christianity then playing church. I do believe we are called for a "purpose". And I don't mean the watered down, and perverted version of purpose that Rick Warren preaches either.

please....I dont need to be proselytized to see the evil of Islam....you enjoy your faith but please don't force it on me....

I'm not proselytizing, this is going to be the end of our country. Open your mind, read the Bible, you don't have to believe, but notice the results of when a society falls out of favor with the true God. Notice the parallels. This country was a Christian nation, we are living on the fumes of that right now.

One little bit that I thought was particularly telling was his description of European acquaintances who would rudely trash Americans in his presence, and who would think they're witty and insightful by calling the American president a "cowboy."

And you're right, people need to read this book, particularly liberals.

Nobody's forcing anything on you. Just delete, my friend.
