“Secret Weapon to Take Over America Revealed,” screams the breathless Worldnetdaily headline. Never one to miss an opportunity to spread unjustified fear, especially when they’ve got a product to sell, the story they’re pushing this time is that Muslim immigration is going to turn the United States into a Muslim country with Sharia law. The math is just a tad bit suspect.
Much has been reported about Latin Americans sneaking across the U.S. southern border, but there may be a greater danger looming in America’s heartland in the form of nearly 2 million Muslims who have made their way to the U.S. since 1992.
And, unlike the surge at the southern border, most of those coming from the Middle East have done so legally, with the full support of the U.S. federal government.
Wow, really? Two million in more than 20 years? That’s less than .6 percent of the American population. And they’re going to take over the country and turn it into a Muslim paradise? By what possible scenario?
Scholars such as Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller and Daniel Pipes have warned for years of the Muslim Brotherhood’s doctrine of immigration, or “al-hijra,” as the long-term strategy to transform America into a different type of society – one that subjugates all other religions under Islam.
Now, another man has stepped up to sound the alarm. And his credentials make him hard to ignore.Dr. Mark Christian, an obstetrician and former Egyptian Muslim with direct family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, is talking a lot these days about “stealth jihad.” He says it’s the Brotherhood’s way of exploiting liberal immigration policies while working relentlessly through various Islamic front groups to pressure government, education and religious institutions to make concessions to Islam.
“Their plan here is to use the influence of the U.S. to further their own agenda. It has been going on for quite some time,” said Christian, who broke with the Islamic faith in 2003, converted to Christianity and came to America two years later. He changed his name and settled in Nebraska, only to be threatened and harassed by Muslims, including some from his own family.
“The Muslim Brotherhood is so big right now and so influential and so wealthy that they can do things on their own,” he said. “The only thing that is missing is the power of the U.S. military to be on their side.”
If Robert Spencer and Pam Geller are scholars, I’m an astronaut. Daniel Pipes, maybe. But an obstetrician who converted from Islam to Christianity has “credentials that make him hard to ignore” on this subject? Why, exactly? As for the Muslim Brotherhood, they can’t even control the country they’re from, which is Egypt, where they’ve been banned and bankrupted by the government. But when you have nothing to sell but fear itself. that’s all you ever do.
