Reader comment on item: How Islamists Came to Dominate European Islam
in response to reader comment: America nurtured Bin Laden & Al-Qaeda

Submitted by No Dhimmi (United States), Jun 2, 2010 at 01:20

The United States did not fund nor train the Mujahideen during the Soviet occupation. The CIA funneled arms and money to the Pakistani ISI. It was them and them today who have supporters amongst their ranks supporting the Taliban. Al-Qaeda was an entirely different entity. Though it fought the Soviets, after their expulsion, it took it's belief that Allah ordained this victory and that it should be carried to the World, particularly, the United States because it stands in the way of Islam triumphing and making the World Islamic.

In August of 1996, Bin Laden had his fatwa published in Al Quds Al Arabi. It's title is "Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places." As for Europe, it has contracepted and aborted itself into a situation where Native Europeans will eventually be the minority. It has a social welfare system that cannot be sustained except with the influx of a younger population. The only ones who are having more than 1.5 children are Muslims. Demographically, they will use the electoral system to become the Majority in European Governments in the next 20-30 years. Then, they will abolish the Democratic system and implement Sharia.
