Imagine 100 million Muslims living in the U.S.

Reader comment on item: Militant Islam's New Strongholds

Submitted by N.A. (United States), Oct 23, 2002 at 12:31

If 1500 years of history is not enough to convince us, consider what other western countries, including the UK, Netherlands, Holland & France, as well as Australia, have experienced as a result of growing immigrant Muslim populations in their midst.

In addition to a sudden upsurge in terrorist attacks, these newcomers have become increasingly strident in their public appeals to the Islamic world's view within their newly adopted homelands. We should not forget to mention growing attacks against the local Jewish & Christian populations, and the rape & humiliation of western girls & women by Muslim youth gangs as a consequence of liberal immigration policies towards these groups.

If anyone is under the illusion that "Islam" means "peace", they should take a lesson from history. Peace under Islam is no different than peace under the ancient Pax Romana, or Roman rule.

Are Muslims getting a bum rap because they have been unfairly stigmatized by westerners? We should remember that what these followers do is more important than what their leader may have said. To quote a prophet that they themselves hold in high esteem, "You shall know them by their fruits..."

Americans need only imagine a country populated with 100 million Muslims to come to the quick conclusion that the militant followers of Mohammed are perhaps the greatest threat to our way of life that any of us will face in our lifetime.
