I have for years blogged about banning further Muslim Immigration and even deporting those that are already among us, see my 2007 article The Sunset of Christianity. Had this country heeded my warnings there would have been no deaths or destruction at the end of the Boston Marathon.
On 1 Jun 2009 an American convert to Islam, one Carlos Leon Bledsoe, opened fire with a rifle in a drive-by shooting on soldiers in front of a United States military recruiting office in Little Rock, Arkansas, killing Private William Long, and wounding Private Quinton Ezeagwula. This was only one case out of many involving American converts to Islam. In my 2006 article Can Muslims be Good Americans? No. No. No., I warned that "when an American, who was born here, converts to Islam, he becomes a threat to this country." Had this country heeded my warnings to deport all Muslims, including converts, there would have been no deaths or injuries in subsequent attacks.
In my 2009 article Ft Hood Lesson: Keep Muslims out of Military, I noted that infidel countries throughout the world are now finding out that Muslims in their military is a bad idea. For example, during the 2005 civil unrest in France French authorities did not employ the army, despite calls to do so, because they feared that their Muslim soldiers would revolt at quelling an Islamic uprising (15% of the French armed forces are made up of Muslims). Had the US Government heeded my 2006 warnings that devout Muslims cannot be loyal citizens there would have been no deaths at Fort Hood because they would have not allowed Maj. Nadal Malik Hasan to join the military.
As for mosques, as I noted in my article Allowing Mosques in the US will Reduce Terrorism (NOT), there are thousands upon thousands of mosques in the US, yet we remain a target for Islamic vengeance. Allowing mosques has not made us more safe, in fact because they breed future Islamists, they make us less safe. It's time we banned the building of mosques. Of course, if we deport all Muslims, there would be no need for them.
Bryan Fischer, Director of Issue Analysis for Government and Public Policy at the American Family Association, agrees with me on all three issues:
Somebody has to be the first to say it.
It’s time, for the sake of the security of the United States of America, to immediately suspend Muslim immigration, to preclude Muslims from service in our military and to stop the building of mosques.
(The matters of Muslim military service and the building of mosques will need to be subjects of future columns.)
It should go without saying that I am speaking just for myself here. But these possibilities must be addressed and discussed in a sober fashion. The reality is that we will wind up doing these three things out of necessity if we do not do them out of wisdom. We need to make these adjustments before it’s too late rather than after it’s too late.
We should suspend Muslim immigration into the United States immediately. Why? Because Muslims bring with them a totalitarian ideology that calls for the submission of the United States to Islam and Sharia law.
Pew released its findings yesterday on its worldwide survey of Muslims, and revealed that two-thirds of Middle Eastern Muslims believe in the death penalty for any Muslim who converts to Christianity, and one-third believe in suicide bombings. This is not a religion of peace or liberty. Every tenet of Islam is fundamentally, irreversibly, subversively and implacably hostile to every value we cherish in America.
Muslim immigrants bring with them a totalitarian ideology whose holy book calls for the followers of Allah to “slay the idolaters wherever you find them” (Sura 9:5). The more devout a Muslim becomes, the more likely he is to obey such a command, as Tamerlan Tsarnaev illustrates, and the more of a threat he becomes to the security of the United States and the safety of the American people.
When I first began calling for an end to Muslim immigration in 2009, I was virtually a lone voice crying in the wilderness. But Andy McCarthy has since called for the suspension of immigration from Muslim majority nations, and Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy has called for precluding “shariah-adherent Muslims” from our shores, in a fashion similar to our post WWII ban on immigrants who adhered to communist ideology.
Since the Boston Muslim Massacre, Laura Ingraham has called for a ban on Muslim immigration, and more significantly, John McCain just yesterday suggested restrictions on immigration from countries with a “significant influence of radical Islamic extremism.” Both Marco Rubio and Rand Paul have openly called for considering the suspension of student visas to Muslim males.
Suspending Muslim immigration to the United States is an idea whose time has come.
Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders, based on Europe’s bitter experience with virtually unrestricted Muslim immigration, has been calling for this for years, and imploring America to wake up and [smell the Sharia before we seal our doom].
Of course, the majority of Muslim immigrants do not want to kill us, but they are not the Muslims we have to worry about. The problem is we have no way of distinguishing the Muslims we do have to worry about from the ones we don’t. And we can’t watch them all.

The operative sentence above is: "The problem is we have no way of distinguishing the Muslims we do have to worry about from the ones we don’t."
Let me add that being able to distinguish moderate Muslims from the extremists is not the only problem, as I wrote in my 2008 article How to differentiate Moderate Muslims from Extremists:
Terrorists by themselves cannot live in isolation. They would be too easy to spot, their activities too easy to monitor, their plans too easy to discover. But put a thousand Muslims in an American city and you invite terrorists to come there. How would anyone be able to distinguish the lone terrorist from among the moderates? One cannot. Money, food, lodging, and support, all these things would now be available to him from those who are not terrorists themselves but are sympathetic to his cause.
Let me end by commenting on Bryan Fischer's assertion: "When I first began calling for an end to Muslim immigration in 2009, I was virtually a lone voice crying in the wilderness."
I was one of those virtually lone voices crying in the wilderness, but three years earlier, in February of 2006 - in my article The End of the Free World - Thanks be to Allah, the most Magnificent, the Merciful I wrote: "The time to expel them [Muslims] is now. Before it's too late."
Although I don't feel so alone anymore, there are still too many Americans who actually believe that Islam is a religion and that Muslims are not a threat to our way of life.
