How to reduce the numbers of Muslims in America and the West

Reader comment on item: Amazon.com's Koran Desecration Problem

In reply to my e-mail to him, Mr. Pipes asks: "How do you propose to 'initiate a net out-migration of Muslims from the U.S. and the West'?"

The answer is in a five-part strategy I laid out in an article last year at FrontPage Magazine, "How to Defeat Jihad in America." (Links below.) The use of the word "defeat" is deliberate. I'm not talking about managing or coping with jihad in America. I'm not talking about marginally reducing its danger through the endless cataloguing of its activities and through occasional prosecutions of terrorists and terror funders. I'm talking about defeating jihad in America, by steadily reducing the numbers and the power of the Muslims among us until they can no longer pose a domestic danger to our lives, our culture, and our liberty.

Readers may also be interested in a follow-up article, "The Search for Moderate Islam, Part II: If it doesn't exist, then what?", in which I place my immigration ideas in the context of an overall, "civilizationalist" approach to Islam. This view recognizes that Islam is a permanent adversary to our civilization, and that it is therefore not within our power to assimilate it, "moderate" it, or democratize it. What we must do instead is disengage from it, isolate it, and place it back in a position where it cannot threaten us. Part I of this article, where I argue that there is no such thing as moderate Islam, and where I focus on Mr. Pipes's writings on this subject, was extensively discussed by readers at Mr. Pipes's website. Part II, where I propose a radically different global strategy toward Islam, has not received the attention it deserves.
