Yesterday, within hours of the horrific Islamic terror attack in Brussels—a direct result of decades of “welcoming” immigration policy toward refugees, and migrants generally, from Muslim countries— citizens of Colorado Springs took to the streets to say they welcome Syrian mostly Muslim refugees to their city.

From The Gazette:

About 120 Colorado Springs residents rallied Tuesday on the steps of City Hall in support of refugees – especially Syrians – about 12 hours after deadly terrorist explosions ripped through the Brussels airport and subway.

Banners and speeches urging compassion and human kindness continued the community’s strong opposition to City Councilman Andres Pico’s March 7 proposal, “A Resolution Declaring Opposition to the Relocation of Refugees from the United States Refugee Resettlement Program to the City of Colorado Springs.”

Brussels is coming to a town near you! Time for a moratorium on Muslim migration to America!, Ann Corcoran, Refugee Resettlement Watch, March 22, 2016.

Belgium, Germany, France, even the UK have been for decades “welcoming” Muslim migrants and what has it gotten them!  This!

There is only one difference between us and them.  They have been seeing the colonization longer and the percentage of the Muslim population is higher than ours is here in America.  How can our ‘leaders’ possibly not see the same future for us if we allow the Muslim population to continue to grow exponentially.

It is just a matter of numbers and once the population reaches as little as 3 or 4% (pick a number, it will be much lower than you assume!) there will be Molenbeeks in many American cities as the supremacists become confident that they can hide in their cities within cities.

A scene earlier this morning from the departure area of the Brussels airport. Salt Lake City in ten years? Or Phoenix?

Because this blog is about refugees, I just checked the numbers of Muslim refugees admitted to the US since Obama was elected (but this has been going on for at least a decade before that through the George W. Bush Presidency as well!).

The number of Muslim refugees totaled 154,160 (in a total refugee count of just short of a half million for all religious persuasions) since the fall of 2008.

They break down like this: 69,400 Moslems (sect not specified), 33,000 Shiite Moslems, and 51,760 Sunni Moslems.  That is just in less than 8 years!

Those numbers do not include all the Muslims who came in through the Diversity Visa Lottery, those who are here in Temporary Protected Status, Student visa holders and the list goes on. And, it doesn’t include all of those who have entered the US illegally and then applied for asylum!

I had to chuckle (well sort of) when I saw that we admitted 30,052 Iraqi Shiites and 40,450 Iraqi Sunnis! In other words we are bringing in both sides of the centuries-old Shiite/Sunni conflict! Is that doubly insane!  Does anyone really believe they will bury the hatchet (oops!) and that the mythical American melting pot will make it all go away!...

Mohammed, Islamic History, and the Bloody Future of the West, Alex Charles, Real Facts Media, March 22, 2016.

... after every Islamic terror attack, our politicians and media try desperately to assure us of two things:

    These “terrorists do not represent Islam” and

    We are a multicultural society that welcomes Muslim immigration...

Even still, we all want to believe we can live in a perfect multicultural society where everyone will get along. This is a central aspect in Western democracies throughout the world...

For most of us Westerners, it’s very difficult to reconcile the nice Muslim woman at work with the ISIS jihadist beheading Christians in Iraq...

Mohammed transitioned from a preacher in Mecca to a warrior and politician with one goal: kill or subjugate everyone under Islam.

In Islam, the lowest form of life is the Kafir, which is the non-Muslim...

Sharia law is Islamic law based on the three works of the Trilogy: Koran, Sira, and Hadith. Islam dictates that Sharia law comes from Allah and it must replace all man-made legal codes and constitutions. Most of Sharia law is based on the examples from Mohammed, which come from the Sira and Hadith.

Sharia law is completely incompatible with all non-Muslim government structures – including every Western democracy. It requires the end of free speech, free thought, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press...

This is confusing because we assume Islam must be either peaceful or violent. And since you probably know some nice Muslims from work or school, Islam must be the “religion of peace,” right?.

The answer is that Islam is both peaceful and violent because Mohammed was peaceful at first and then violent after leaving Mecca.

When Islam is weak and surrounded by a large group of non-Muslims, it is generally peaceful and tolerant (Mecca Koran).

As the Muslim population grows and strengthens, Muslims become more forceful in the implementation of Sharia law and making political demands (Medina Koran). It is the same trend throughout 1,400 years of Islamic history...

Today’s Perpetual Snipe Hunt: The Search For “Moderate Muslims”, Paul Nachman, VDare, March 24, 2014:

In our time there’s probably no holier grail than “moderate Islam” together with its corresponding adherents, “moderate Muslims.”  That’s because, in the West’s—more generally, in civilization’s—ongoing existential confrontation with the religion of perpetual outrage,“Radical Islam is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution,” according to those such as prominent scholar of Islam Daniel Pipes.

But does “moderate Islam” even exist? Back in 2005, the late Lawrence Auster did his usual deep and exhaustive unpacking of the concept (The Search for Moderate Islam, here and here) as found in Pipes’s writings and showed definitively that Pipes was simply engaged in wishful thinking: i.e. “Moderate Islam” needs to exist and, therefore, does exist because it would be too terrible for the world if it doesn’t.
