Muslim immigrants in Minnesota include a large number of Somalis who are among the most retro refugees ever. As uneducated tribal people, they are useful pawns in the jihadist program of building a future caliphate in America.
Jihadis skillfully manipulate liberal guilt and the belief in multiculturalism to erode resistance against hostile foreigners who insist that their "diverse" ways (e.g. polygamy) be accepted. As a result, Minnesota has become a major front line for jihadist attacks of a political nature, including the flying imams and the refusal of Muslim cabbies to drive passengers with seeing eye dogs or carrying alcohol. The flying imams recently escalated their bogus charges of discrimination by declaring they would sue the passengers on the flight who reported suspicious behavior of a terrorist nature.
Muslims' aim in this well financed campaign is to wear down American resolve to fight demographic warfare. The Sons of Allah hope that comparing their pro-terrorist groups to civil rights will fool Americans. After all, Immigration is War by Other Means, a strategy that has thus far been very successful for Muslims in Europe.
Troubling incidents began several years ago, when taxi drivers at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport—about three-quarters of whom are Muslim—started refusing to transport passengers carrying alcohol. One woman, returning from France with wine, was turned away by five cabs in succession. Refusals of service now number about 100 a month, and heated altercations have erupted. [...]
In Washington, the Democratic leadership is likely to seek passage of the End Racial Profiling Act, of which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called herself, in 2004, a "proud" cosponsor. Both MAS and CAIR are stumping for the bill, which would bar airport security personnel from disproportionately questioning Muslims or people of Middle Eastern descent. Minnesota's Keith Ellison, the nation's first Muslim Congressman, told me that the imams' situation reflects a misunderstanding of Muslim prayer and will be sorted out in court, while the other matters stem from the normal process of immigrant adjustment.
The events here suggest a larger strategy: By piggy-backing on our civil rights laws, Islamist activists aim to equate airport security with racial bigotry and to move slowly toward a two-tier legal system. Intimidation is a crucial tool. The "flying imams" lawsuit ups the ante by indicating that passengers who alerted airport authorities will be included as defendants. Activists are also perfecting their skills at manipulating the media. After a "pray-in" at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., one credulous MSNBC anchor likened the flying imams to civil rights icon Rosa Parks. [Shariah in Minnesota? Opinion Journal 3/24/07]
On this same subject, see scholar Bernard Lewis' March 7 speech at the American Enterprise Institute in which he outlined the long history of Muslim aggression against Europe and the West.
In the eyes of a fanatical and resolute minority of Muslims, the third wave of attack on Europe has clearly begun. We should not delude ourselves as to what it is and what it means. This time it is taking different forms and two in particular: terror and migration.
The subject of terror has been frequently discussed and in great detail, and I do not need to say very much about that now. What I do want to talk about is the other aspect of more particular relevance to Europe, and that is the question of migration.
In earlier times, it was inconceivable that a Muslim would voluntarily move to a non-Muslim country.
The dire situation in Europe shows what happens when citizens ignore invasion by immigration. Activities by the enemies of America reveal that the cancer has taken root here. The first step must be to severely restrict Muslim immigration, which is now on the increase. We cannot let political correctness stand in the way of protecting the country.
