MUSLIMS IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA: NATURE’S WAY OF SAYING MULTICULTURALISM IS A BAD IDEA

Part 16: Devastating results of multiculturalism in Europe and the United States
To show you how completely different Muslims think: “We are not terrorists. We are jihadists, and jihad is not terrorism,” said Ramy ZamZam, one of the five Muslim-Americans arrested in Pakistan in December on suspicion of plotting acts of terrorism on the United States.
Writer Randall Parker remarked, “Muslims are nature’s way of telling us that multiculturalism is a really bad idea.”
Instead of Western culture where women enjoy equal rights to men, gays can become mayors of cities, women come and go from the house as they please, and women enjoy personal choices of dress and friends--what if America changed its entire cultural paradigm to inculcate Islamic Sharia Law?
What if America disallowed women’s rights, women’s voting, women’s education, women’s choice of a husband, women’s rights to dress as they pleased, women’s choice of sexual orientation, women’s rights to drive and women’s rights to run for public office? What if the United States of America allowed female genital mutilation, honor killings, stoning of women for adultery and beheadings of women for not obeying their husbands? What if that cultural paradigm mandated everyone kneeling on a prayer rug to bow to Mecca five times a day?
Most Americans lack any understanding of the concepts or practices of Islam. Out of sight, out of mind! If it’s not happening in my community, it’s not happening. Honor killings of wives and daughters! If it’s happening in Texas, New York or Arizona—it’s not happening in my state. I am safe! Wrong!
If Americans saw Detroit today, walked the streets, watched the mosques by the dozens, listened the to Arabic jabber all around them, watched thousands bowing to Mecca five times a day, heard the Islamic music calls to worship over the streets of Detroit—they would just about suffer a heart attack at what’s happening to their country. Americans cannot and do not comprehend the ramifications of the quickly growing Muslim population within the United States.
In an excellent article, “Joys of Islam” by Muslim and author Nonie Darwish, she brings home the realities of Islam as it pertains to individual lives. For Westerners that expect logical actions, moral decisions and a sense of balance within their societies—Islam staggers anyone’s sense of right and wrong while turning it upside down. If you wonder why Islamic societies remain poor, illiterate or subjected by dictators—you find it within the theocracy and barbaric practices of Islam. However, for Muslims, it seems normal because they continue their religious practices as if they still lived in the 6th century. They don’t know anything else.
“In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as one year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. Consummating the marriage by nine,” said Darwish. “The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy. Even though a woman is abused she cannot obtain a divorce. To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses. Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives 'at will' and he does not have to say why he has beaten her. The husband is permitted to have (4 wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.”
In the Western World (America) Muslim men are starting to demand Sharia Law so the wife cannot obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children to the Sharia Law.
Ripping the West in Two
Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Sharia Law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two. She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law. Born in Cairo, Darwish spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before immigrating to America in 1978.
Darwish warns about creeping Sharia Law. She says, “Islamists are working to impose Sharia on the world. If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed. Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual. Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed in this world. Peace and prosperity for one's children is not as important as assuring that Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world.”
Darwish continued, “While Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of ethics - one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh century, Sharia encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others.
“While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a personal understanding of and relationship with God, Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted as criticism.”
Americans blind as to Islamic outcome in USA
“Unfortunately, Islamic scholars conclude that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed,” said Darwish. “While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over time, petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere,” said Darwish.
Again, for any readers of this series, if you might submit new stories in order to round out the realities of Islam in America or any other country, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will include them in future columns.
In many ways, I feel sorry for Muslims in America because they face daunting obstacles for adapting to 21st century America. And, our citizens will not tolerate Islam when it begins to change our culture as you see happening in Detroit, Michigan or Freemont, California. We’ll see either violence or increasing separation and fracturing of our cities and country.
Whether it is Islamic or Mexican culture transforming America out of itself and into other cultural paradigms, a staggering price will be paid, especially for women. If you look at the American Indians, they lost their land, their cultures, their languages, their religions and their freedoms. I see their fate becoming our fate if we continue mass immigration into America.

Hopefully, our civilization cannot and will not convert to the oppressive concepts of Islam when free thought, free actions and freedom of religion remain our most sacred rights.
