When the Chinese came to America they brought their culture as well; but walk in any Chinatown in this country and you will not be threatened or even feel as if you have left America despite the Golden Dragons adorning the walls of restaurants or the pagoda-tiered phone booths in the streets.
When the Irish came to America they brought their culture as well; but no one is forced under threat of violence to eat corned beef and cabbage on Saint Patty's Day. Americans are free to celebrate that holiday or not, as they choose without being asked to relinquish some other holiday.
When the Jews came to America they brought their culture as well; but despite being the largest ethnic group in New York no public school was forced to dispense with pork so as not to offend a single Jew. No store was asked to remove piggy banks from their windows. No Jewish cashiers at Target's checkout counter refused to handle bacon (1). No Jewish cabbies refused to carry passengers because of some religious affront (2).
After hundreds of years of immigrants we still have hundreds of ethnic groups and religions all getting along with no one particular group asking that their culture, their religion, their way of life supersede any other. Until now.
Muslims Make Unreasonable Demands
We recall reading this headline at the start of this month: "Islam Hi-Jacks American Labor Day" (3). I do not care if a majority of workers in a plant want to celebrate National Wet T-Shirt Day (4) instead of Christmas or even the 4th of July. None of my business. However allowing Muslims to start trading their religious holidays for ours is paving the road to hell. Let a camel stick its nose into your tent and in short order you will be sleeping outside with the camel comfortably inside. Muslims are not like the Chinese or Irish or Jews. Allow one Jew into a country and a century later you have a couple of Jews. Let one Muslim into a country and a century later there are no non-Muslims left.
One may ask what's the problem with allowing Muslims reasonable accommodation for their religion? After all, we let Jews celebrate Jewish holidays at school and on the job. There is a problem. Jews (as well as Hindus and Buddhists) will not go overboard and ask for unreasonable accommodation. Allow Muslims to have foot-baths at Universities and soon they will be demanding that girls be in separate classrooms, that musical instruments be removed from music classes and that art teachers not show any art that represents the human form (5).
So When is Too Many Muslims?
The following is from Slavery, Terrorism & Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat:
Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.
Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called "religious rights."
When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to "the reasonable" Muslim demands for their "religious rights," they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007).
As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
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. 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 it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.
France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 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 under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris — car burnings, etc.). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam — Mohammed cartoons).
Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 10-15%
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:
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 — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:
Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 99.9%
Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.
"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; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel". — Leon Uris, "The Haj"
It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.
When average citizens become afraid to offend Muslims - when they fear for their lives that a book (6), a painting (7), a cartoon, or a news report will cause their death or destruction and forgo that book or that cartoon, then we have reached a point when there are too many Muslims in our country.
Amazingly Muslims are only 1% of our population now and we have already reached a point where Random House publicly admits that they are abandoning a book printing (8) for fear of offending Muslims who may kill/torture/burn/behead them. Imagine how much fun it will be in America when they are 5% or 10% of the population - wheeeeeee.
The Astute Bloggers, 24 Apr 2008, ARE MUSLIM CABBIES IN PARIS MURDERING THEIR "SLEAZY" INFIDEL FARES?
Sweden has urged its young women not to go out alone in Paris at night after a Swedish teenager was abducted and murdered in the French capital.
The charred body of Sussanna Zetterberg, 19, was discovered on Saturday in woods outside Paris just hours after she left a nightclub in the heart of the city.
"I am in a taxi, the driver is odd," Zetterberg said in a text message to a friend. She was not heard from again.
A postmortem showed she had been stabbed, a judicial source said. French press reported she had also been shot four times and was found with her hands tied behind her back.
Prosecutors are investigating whether there are any links with a case in February when another 19-year-old Swede was raped by a man who had posed as a taxi driver.
Winds Of Jihad By SheikYerMami, 14 Mar 2007, CULTURAL JIHAD: No Halal MEAT at Target
Customer service and faith clash at registers Some Muslim cashiers at Target refuse to handle pork, setting off another debate over the place of religion in society.
Beryl Dsouza was late and in no mood for delays when she stopped at a Target store after work two weeks ago for milk, bread and bacon.
So Dsouza was taken aback when the cashier — who had on the traditional headscarf, or hijab, worn by many Muslim women — refused to swipe the bacon through the checkout scanner.
“She made me scan the bacon. Then she opened the bag and made me put it in the bag,” said Dsouza, 53, of Minneapolis. “It made me wonder why this person took a job as a cashier.”
Instead of swiping the items themselves, they are asking non-Muslim employees or shoppers to do it for them.
Infidels Are Cool, 11 Aug 2008, Shariah comes to Minnesota
Not surprising from a state where Muslim cab drivers refuse to pick up passengers with alcohol or dogs, where local colleges install Islamic foot baths, the airport installs Islamic prayer rooms, where Islamic school administrators don’t know how to raise the American flag, and where a Muslim congressman refuses to condemn Muslim American Society for the violent and anti-Semitic statements found on the group’s website.
Maggie's Notebook, 2 Aug 2008, Islam Hi-Jacks American Labor Day
A Tyson Food plant in Shelbyville, Tennessee contractually agreed with a Union to drop Labor Day and instead, give all employees off for a new holiday - the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr.

Bnet, 11 Feb 1996, Mohammed knocks at classroom door
Cecil Knight, head of Small Heath school, a mixed comprehensive in Birmingham where 96 per cent of pupils are Muslims, says parents are much quicker to complain than they used to be. "We have a generation of Muslims who have come through the education system and are much more competent at articulating the aims and desires of the Muslim community," he says. "They are not willing to compromise to the same degree."
Muslim governors are increasingly making demands. For example, Islamic law forbids drawing the human form, and that leads to what Mr Knight calls "a lively dialogue with the art teacher". Some parents also object to the use of musical instruments in music lessons, fearing their connection with pop music and Western youth culture, which they see as riddled with sex and drugs. There have even been requests for separate play areas and separate classes for boys and girls, which would be at odds with Small Heath's status as a co-educational school.
Greg Laden's Blog, This blog issues a fatwa regarding Random House Publishers …
If you’re moderately literate, you’ve probably heard of The Jewel of Medina, the scandalous book about Aisha, the child bride of Muhammad, which Random House pulled from their publication schedule … The book had reached the stage of galleys without anyone at Random House batting an eyelash, as far as can be told. The author, Sherry Jones, a journalist, requested that Random House send a review copy to Denise Spellberg, Associate Professor of History and Middle Eastern Studies and the author of one of the biographies Jones read in preparation for writing her novel. Spellberg didn’t like it, calling it a “very ugly, stupid piece of work.”
The Guardian, Fantasy queen mistaken for Prophet's wife
It cannot be said that the objectives behind Tate Britain's decision to exhibit the striking figure of Ayesha were anything but laudable. Curators were keen to show the gallery could broaden its canvas to embrace art from the Middle East and so entice through its doors visitors from many cultures.
So the question to be asked is, how could it all have gone so wrong?
There is no disputing that the picture, by the Pre-Raphaelite artist Valentine Prinsep, is a fine work. But when the gallery, as a service to its visitors, sought to describe the painting and its history, it ended up making more enemies than friends.
First, the picture's caption described it as depicting one of the wives of the prophet Mohammed. It was a concept that many Muslim visitors condemned as an act of blasphemy - since the Muslim faith prohibits human representations of the prophet, his wives or relatives.
The Amboy Times, 6 Aug 2008, Another Book Banned by Islamists
Starting in 2002, Spokane, Wash., journalist Sherry Jones toiled weekends on a racy historical novel about Aisha, the young wife of the prophet Muhammad. Ms. Jones learned Arabic, studied scholarly works about Aisha's life, and came to admire her protagonist as a woman of courage. When Random House bought her novel last year in a $100,000, two-book deal, she was ecstatic. This past spring, she began plans for an eight-city book tour after the Aug. 12 publication date of "The Jewel of Medina" -- a tale of lust, love and intrigue in the prophet's harem.
It's not going to happen: In May, Random House abruptly called off publication of the book. The series of events that torpedoed this novel are a window into how quickly fear stunts intelligent discourse about the Muslim world.
