Well said! Our immigration policies relative to Dar al Islam, as well as our foreign policy, should be founded on a close reading of the Koran, ahadith and sura. By unexpurgated I mean an objective reading by untainted western scholars, with no filtering by the Muslim taqiyya masters who have infiltrated our academia and government bureaucracy at every level. By untainted scholars, I mean non-Muslim scholars who are not on the payroll, directly or indirectly (beholden via grants, "chairs," speaking fees, etc.), of Saudi Ariabia and other dawa spreaders.

When our commander in chief and his helpers mouth the "religion of peace" and "noble religion" pablum, any modestly informed person knows instantly that 1) our policies are in a hopelessly unrealistic, even Pollyanish, state, and 2) the expert advice that they are receiving is both filtered and tainted by deceivers.
