I have criticized Europe: now it is America's turn

Reader comment on item: King of Pop Michael Jackson and Black Converts to Islam

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Mar 7, 2006 at 11:37

I am not American, but it seems to me that the conversion of so many African-Americans to Islam is a sign that there is something wrong with America's social divisions. Michael Jackson is a man who harrassed children. But why do so many African-Americans embrace Islam? It is time for American Protestants and Catholics to look at African-Americans as people to be converted, or helped with their social problems. I have criticized Europe for its weakness and unwillingness to deal with Militant Islam and Muslim immigration (before someone gets angry, let me explain that most immigrants in Europe are Muslims).

Now, it is time to criticize the Americans for letting so many African-Americans join the Nation of Islam and convert to Islam. It is not just about the King of Pop. It is about all African-Americans who end up in jail and all those who feel excluded from mainstream society. This plays in the hands of Islamists and produces more converts to Islam.
