The West should stop importing diffusiveness from the Rest

The argument given by Mr. Pipes is correct but it considers only one viewpoint and fails to consider how immigrants, particularly Moslems, consider immigration. Almost all non-White, non-Hispanic immigrants would immigrate to the US with a zombie virus: mostly with a wish to defeat the Republicans by having some relation with the 'external' Left. Almost 7 out of 10 new immigrants would favor the Democrats over the Republicans. Even if it is agreed that because of this polarization 1 true-national out of 10 new immigrant-nationals is added to Republican vote base, this would make American politics asymmetric and would hurt its bipolarity.

Now let us come to Moslems' immigration to the West, particularly to the US. Majority of them would be guided by increasing purity of Islam: one needs to understand that this is inevitable consequence of nationalism induced consumerism. They would believe more in Imam Mahdi; the prophesized redeemer of Islam; one who would lead the Islamic world to the Day of Judgment after establishing the global Islamic Caliphate.

Now in order to establish global Islamic Caliphate, Imam Mahdi would depend a lot on Moslem immigrants all over the world, particularly those living in the West. Majority of these immigrants, once they are sure of the Imam's arrival, would be the torchbearer, becoming violent many times. Appears fiction? It is not.

It would be their naivete as guns and explosives can harm peace in the West but under no circumstance they can establish the dominance of Moslems in the West. But then this would be their compulsive thinking buoyed by their partial success in the West. No legislation and therapy can change the beliefs of people fully. And it is fully Islamic to think about the doomsday Imam. So what's the way out?

It requires regulating the low-end immigration and also having guts of calling a White a White and simultaneously calling a Black a Black. But then there should not be any boycott of anyone, least of Moslems. What is required is that the West should stop importing the diffusiveness of the Rest and also Americans ending their arguments about the US being the 'nation of immigrants'. It requires consistency and all should know that consistency is the property of big minds.

The rule of majority should be supported all over without suppressing the minorities. The West should abandon its wish to spread democracy and capitalism all over the world. The role of BRICS would be very critical in this regards. China matters most among them. It needs to create primary capabilities all over the world so that the potentials of talented people all over the world get satisfied. But for that the West should invest in itself in a manner reducing its dependency on low end labor. The West should abandon the universalism and convergence theories even if it wins over the senses. The localized theories and adaptable solutions are the best thing to try for.
