Another con of marrying into Islam

Dear Dr Pipes, DNM in his above message referred us to Nicolus Taleb's interview. I have not heard the interview yet. However, I am impressed that (according to DNM), Taleb in this interview said that Islam propagates due to the way Islamic laws of inter-faith marriages are designed. All sane people will agree that Islamic matrimony laws are shamelessly selfish. Here I will like to point out another reason why marriage for non-Muslims into Islam is harmful.

Besides being a religion and a political movement, Islam is also a land-grabbing machine. In most free (i.e. non Muslim) societies modern laws for inheritance are gender neutral. By our culture and conditioning, free parents pass their inheritance equally between male and female children. When a non-Muslim marries a Muslim, a tiny bit of non-Muslim property becomes Islamic property. And, make no mistake about it, entry into Islam is a one-way street: things can go in but they cannnot come out.

Countries do not become 98% Muslim by choice or spirituality. They become 98% Muslim by systematic degradation and destruction of freedom. Moral of the story again is that non-Muslims should not let Islam advance without providing them some resistance. And, marrying into Islam is advancing Islam wihout resistance (even if you are allowed to remain in your original religion).
