A bit of interesting reading for you, perhaps. I'm not dodging your question, I just think you are asking the wrong question. Please read this point of view and then lets see where you are at and if this does not address what you are really asking:
Is the Islamic Threat Real?
Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components
Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies
agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well. Here's how it works:
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:
United States -- Muslim 0.6%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1.8%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%
When the Muslim population is between 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:
Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:
France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims population approachs 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawless activities, as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we have already seen car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:
Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 15%
After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
At 40% share in population, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%
There is a change when the population is 60%, and now we see unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:
Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%
With 80% population, you can expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:
Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace. Here there's supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:
Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 100%
Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states, the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons. I shall like to quote Leon Uris in The Haj:
'Before I was nine, I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the
It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they lead their lives by Sharia Law. The
national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.
Today's 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world's population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world's population by the end of this century. Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the henhouse. The wolves will be herding the sheep!
Nearer home, Obama appoints two devout Muslims to Homeland Security posts. Doesn’t this make you feel safer already? Obama and Janet Napolitano appoint Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).
Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...? Just wondering! Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn't this make you feel safer already?? That should make the US' homeland much safer, huh!!
Was it not "Devout Muslim men" that flew planes into U.S. buildings 8 years ago?
Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood?
This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be a good American? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:
· Theologically - no . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah.
· Religiously – no… Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)
· Scripturally - no… Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
· Geographically – no… Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
· Socially - no… Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews..
· Politically - no…Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan. Domestically - no… Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34).
· Intellectually - no… Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
· Philosophically - no… Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression..
Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic. Spiritually - no… Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' the Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran's 99 excellent names.
But we need not be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. There are saner elements. Call it what you wish, it's still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our future. But the fact remains that the looming religious war is bigger than we know.
This article is based on Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.
As I told Mr. Meador, I'm not on anyone's payroll. Now, think about this logically. Which movie would the Sundance Film Festival be more interested in: One that "exposes Islamophobia?" $$$ or one that warns Americans that the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to destroy the country from within (box office poison)?
So, if I were to abandon my principles and go only where the money is, which direction do you think I would go? Hollywood, where my movie was already financed, or give the money back, head into the unknown and the uncertain and speak the truth of my recent discoveries?
As a nonbeliever, if I may, allow me to offer this painfully simple answer to the Bible versus Koran problem:
For the most part, the violence in Christianity exists either in print or in the past. There are occasional exceptions to this rule.
On the other hand, the violent passages in the Islamic trilogy are carried out daily, in every country where there is Muslim majority or an attempt to create one by force.
What I have just stated is a self-evident fact. To debate this is an indication that whoever disagrees has not taken the time to understand Islam. So, before typing the usual knee-jerk reaction, I would recommend that anyone who thinks that Christianity and Islam have much in common, you have a choice. Either continue to remain willfully ignorant, or begin to ask the tough questions about your assumptions regarding Islam.
Is it really true, that Islam is a peaceful religion which has been hijacked by a few extremists? It sounds nice. And we sure do hear this parroted a lot. But the facts just simply do not support it.
READ FOR YOURSELF OTHER THINGS I SAID THAT THE NASHVILLE SCENE WANTS TO IGNORE:
- Eric Allen Bell
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL I PROVIDED NASHVILLE SCENE - INCONVENIENT TRUTHS:
From Islamic scripture, this what is still taught in mosques:
"The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him." (Sahih Muslim, 41:6985; see also 41:6981-84 and Sahih Bukhari, 4:52:176,177 and 4:56:791)
ALSO I PROVIDED AS SOURCE MATERIAL IN THE FOLLOW UP TO OUR 100 MINUTE INTERVIEW:

WHY WERE THIS PRESSING TRUTHS IGNORED?
One day, us "Islamophobes" will be remembered as the voices of reason, while the political correct who demonized us will find themselves on history's blooper reels.
- Eric Allen Bell
Selective listening disorder: Perhaps "The Nashville Scene" should stick to reviewing trendy nightclubs and quaint restaurants. The "journalist" was recently arrested at an Occupy rally and wanted to know why I did not object to "American terrorism and Israeli terrorism". I suggested that he seek to understand the difference between terrorism and warfare. When you provide a deeply indoctrinated person with mounting facts, their mind will dismiss, rationalize and rearrange until everything fits to support the existing reality tunnel, through which they must look at the world. I told the writer that I understood he would need to portray me as a fanatical boogey man, for not to do so would be to deeply question the very foundation of all of his beliefs. And when you do that, usually a very difficult existential crisis follows. I've been there. The article makes it clear which way he decided to go.
I provided this "journalist" with a treasure trove of information regarding Islam and he did not report any of it. Instead he found someone at Vanderbilt, living in a fantasy world, to say that "Islam is one of the 3 great beautiful religions of the world". It's hard to make someone become religiously literate when they don't want to be, when they have so much invested in not investigating the truth.
FOR EXAMPLE: I told Mr. Meador that Mohammed married a six year old, named Aisha, whom he had had sex with when she was 9 years old, according to Islamic scripture:
"Aisha said, "The Apostle of Allah married me when I was seven years old." (The narrator Sulaiman said: "Or six years."). "He had intercourse with me when I was 9 years old."
Narrated Hisham's father: Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married 'Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed (sic – consummated) that marriage when she was nine years old.
Sahih Bukhari 5:58:236
Narrated 'Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).
Sahih Bukhari 7:62:64
Narrated 'Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. Hisham said: I have been informed that 'Aisha remained with the Prophet for nine years (i.e. till his death)." what you know of the Quran (by heart)'
Sahih Bukhari 7:62:65
Narrated 'Ursa: The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with 'Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).
Sahih Bukhari 7:62:88
Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) married me when I was seven or six. When we came to Medina, some women came. according to Bishr's version: Umm Ruman came to me when I was swinging. They took me, made me prepared and decorated me. I was then brought to the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him), and he took up cohabitation with me when I was nine. She halted me at the door, and I burst into laughter.
Abu Dawud 41:4915
