(The American Family Association has taken no official position on this issue.)
My column of last Thursday, in which I suggested we immediately stop Muslim immigration into the United States and offer to repatriate Muslim immigrants to Muslim countries which share their values, has predictably stirred up a dust storm in the leftwing blogosphere.
As far as restricting the flow of Muslim immigrants into the United States, the question we should ask is a very simple one, and it is this. Should any nation welcome to its shores immigrants who have a solemn, sacred obligation to kill as many of their hosts as possible? That's a form of suicidal insanity, but it reflects our current immigration practice.
Of course, most Muslims in the U.S. are not actively looking to do us harm. They're not the ones we have to worry about. But until "moderate" Muslims help us find a foolproof way to identify the Muslims we do have to worry about - and so far they have not been willing to offer this kind of help - every new Muslim immigrant represent a potential threat to the safety and security of the United States.
Here are just some sample excerpts from the book President Obama cannot stop calling the "Holy" Koran, the book that every Muslim believes is the revealed word of Allah and contains his commands for his followers:
Qur'an (4:76) - "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…"
Qur'an (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
Qur'an (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah"
Qur'an (9:5) - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush..."
Qur'an (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
Qur'an (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."
Here are a few gems from the Hadith:
Muslim (1:33) - the Messenger of Allah said: "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah"
Bukhari (8:387) - Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah'"
Tabari 9:69 - "Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us"
Ibn Ishaq: 992 - "Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah."
And this is just a sampling! By one account, 109 verses in the Koran direct Muslims to wage war against infidels.
Here's a beauty on what Muslims are taught about integrating into the population of a Christian land:
Qur'an (4:89) - "They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks."
You will notice that Muslims are prohibited by their god from assimilating into Christian cultures. They are not even to take friends from among the Christian infidels. No melting pot here, no sir. In point of fact, their religion forbids them to become good Americans.
Bottom line: every Muslim who enters the United States carries within his bosom the seeds of sedition. It is dangerously foolish for the United States to invite folks inside our borders whose god orders them, through his holy prophet, to murder American infidels. According to the latest Easter polling data, infidels comprise about 80 percent of our population, the 80 percent who believe that Jesus is the Son of God, came to earth to die for our sins, and rose from the grave. Each of these beliefs is regarded in Islam as a heresy which ultimately merits the death penalty.
And if the government won't impose this death penalty on the infidels, the Muslims themselves will be happy to impose it on their own initiative, as 9/11 and Fort Hood amply illustrate.
If we separate ourselves for a moment from the rampant and mindless political correctness and multiculturalism which controls the thinking of the elites, and the ordinary Americans who allow the elite to do their thinking for them, it is obviously and plainly nuts to throw out the welcome mat to those who have a religious obligation to obliterate us. It is beyond comprehension that we have become so brain-addled that we regard it a positive virtue to blindly embrace our own destroyers.
Muslims who have become naturalized citizens, of course, would need to commit an act of treason to forfeit their citizenship and become eligible for repatriation. Based on the Constitution's definition of treason in Article III Section 3 ["adhering to (the) Enemies (of the United States), (or) giving them Aid and Comfort"] treasonous acts are likely committed on virtually a weekly basis here in the U.S. in many mosques and Islamic organizations.
But in the meantime, we've given them the right to be here, and we will simply have to continue watching them like hawks while loving them as our enemies. Perhaps through our friendship and prayers some may even be persuaded to become followers of Christ rather than Mohammed. But with 80 percent of America's mosques funded by Saudi Arabia, the home of the most virulent form of Islam, each Islamic house of worship is a potential terrorist cell.
Places like Dearborn and Hamtramck, Michigan, have become virtual Muslim, sharia-governed enclaves on U.S. soil, where the vast majority of televisions are tuned to Al Jazeera and where the call to Islamic prayer can be heard echoing throughout cities where church bells once chimed.
Muslims continue to have as their objective the Islamization of the entire world, including the U.S., and are taught by their god to use force where necessary to accomplish the goal. The current objective of Muslim activists is to create a brand new Islamic state - meaning a state like New Jersey or Montana - out of existing jurisdictions and establish a virtual Islamic homeland in our midst.
But they are not content to stop there, and they've told us so. For instance, Muslim Student Associations can be found on hundreds of college campuses in the United States. It is not an exaggeration to call each one of these groups a terrorist training cell in ideology if not necessarily in practice.
The stated goal of the MSA and its brother organizations, is, according to a memorandum of the Muslim Brotherhood, to teach Muslims "that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands...so that...God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions."
Many Muslims are on our shores on student visas and such and have not yet become citizens. We must politely decline their request for naturalization (becoming an American citizen is a privilege, not a right) and use the money we would otherwise spend on their welfare, their education, their medical care and their incarceration to graciously assist them in returning to their countries of origin.
Those who are willing to convert to Christianity and renounce Islam, Allah, Mohammed and the Koran may be welcomed, for they can become not just good Christians but true Americans.
Is this xenophobia? Nope, just common sense and a love of the United States and its exceptionalism. In fact, what we must protect ourselves from are Amerophobes, those who hate us because of who we are and what we believe. It's time for a wake-up call.
