the slow, steady advance of Islam in the United States
Spencer: Islamic Law Comes to the Phoenix Airport
[read Spencer's original post at http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/022513.php]
. . . what is going on here? Plain and simple, it’s Islamic supremacism: the idea that Islamic mores and practices must always and everywhere prevail whenever and wherever they clash with non-Muslim ones. When non-Muslims travel in Muslim countries, they have to adapt to Islamic mores. When Muslims immigrate to non-Muslim countries, non-Muslims have to adapt to Islamic mores.
Are you [Spencer] seriously saying that Somali Muslim janitorial staff wearing skirts in Phoenix is some threat to Western civilization? No, of course I’m not.
What I am saying is this: The Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy in the United States is, in their own words, “a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
When a group has a declared supremacist agenda, aiming step-by-step to subvert American culture and impose Islamic norms upon the society, would it really be wise not to see initiatives like this one as part of that effort? After all, it reinforces a precedent that has already been set in other contexts: when Islamic practices are at variance with American ones, it is the American ones that must give way. What will be the outcome of following that precedent over a period of years?
At a certain point, Americans are going to have to draw the line and say they have accommodated Islamic practices enough and will do so no longer. Since Islam presents a comprehensive framework for society, covering every aspect of daily life, this line must be drawn, or America will become completely Islamized. Fanciful? Sure. But our free and pluralistic society is suffering the death of a thousand cuts: bit by bit, piece by piece, American society is learning that it must adapt to Islamic law and custom. How many of our freedoms are we going to lose before enough Americans wake up to the end point of this accommodation and put a stop to it?
