Stand together as Americans

Dear Editor,
Thanks for printing my previous letters. I am trying to share my concern about Islam because their goal is world dominance.
That isn’t an exaggeration! It is the fastest growing political and legal system in the world and expansion alone is not the only issue.
Destroying nations, it’s legal system, religions, culture and monuments is part of their agenda. Subversive activity is being used more frequently as Muslims increase in sophistication at injecting themselves into host societies rather than terrorism.
In Europe, as the number of immigrants increase and finally reach a critical balance, usually 4-5 percent of the population, they begin to make demands without the reasonable attitude that is used when they are few and politically weak in a new country. Then when the citizens of the host country realize what is happening and begin to push back, they are called racist and bigots.
All nations have had their share of racism but, now that social awareness has increased the ‘racist’ and ‘bigot’ pejorative is a real show stopper and one that most people try to avoid.
Just reporting what is in the Koran and Sunna can be offensive to Muslims as most have not read the Koran for themselves as it is required to be read in classical Arabic. To people accustomed to having freedom of speech and press, this name calling is unjust, but sensitivity to minorities makes us and news media hold our tongue.
If the host citizens try to remove some of the privileges that the Muslims have won, such as rooms for prayer or halal food, the Muslims usually riot. (These are political demands not religious demands.) Destroying property and killing is not barred.
As I have said before, this is JIHAD and just the threat of a riot has been quite effective in the UK and Netherlands to make them back down on enforcing their laws. Everyone in the US needs to examine our motives for our actions and words and if racist we need to give some serious thought to how these feelings developed and how they can be reduced.
If we are not motivated by racism and bigotry, we need to take up for ourselves and insist on a fair and reasonable response. Giving into the Muslims will eventually mean the loss of the Constitution and Sharia law installed in its place, as one demand from Muslims leads to another and another.
The United States will soon become a Muslim country if we continue with this mentality. We have to replace our submissive, hangdog behavior so that we can save our country. Self loathing has become a national pass time and has never been deserved, but is used to cause guilt feelings to destroy pride in our accomplishments.
Being called racist and bigots is emotionally and intellectually on the same level as name calling on the playground. I think most people have tried to examine their feelings and remove racist language and behavior and until the recent past it looked as though we had made a lot of progress on this issue.
This is now spilling over onto our relations with the Muslims. We will recover the ground lost with race relations, but our reaction to the Muslims is dangerous and can have far-reaching effects that may never be reversed. Our relations with all citizens, black, brown, white, and yellow need to be repaired on the double so that we, as a solid front, can defend our nation.
Many Muslims don’t value education, or technological advancement, especially for women, outside of studying the Koran. Our technology is an accomplishment we can be proud of and is certainly worth preserving. Their view of other religions is the same for all, not a legitimate religion and should be replaced with Islam.
The divisiveness now running rampant through the nation is destructive culturally, educationally, religiously, and is dividing communities so that we are unprepared for emergencies when they occur.
We are divided into Us and Them instead of standing together as WE AMERICANS to study and correct the problems we face in education, immigration, defending our Constitution, and the Christian religion.
If Muslims want to come here they need to be willing to abide by our laws and we need to unite to be sure that they do. If churches will encourage cohesiveness and support all people, and especially encourage youth to learn to be responsible for themselves, we may have an even chance at national survival. We can surely make more progress in solving our problems if we work together.
