Another day, another terror attack by a Muslim screaming Allahu Akhbar and another batch of media stories about that fabled Muslim Backlash that like global warming putting US coastal cities underwater never seems to happen.

Ahmad’s question was answered.

My biggest concern is that he’s readily identified as a Muslim and then that is extrapolated out to my own faith,” he said.

In the wake of Tuesday’s attack, some Muslim Americans and community leaders expressed concerns over how their religion would be perceived and whether Muslims would become targets of violence.

Despite the lack of a backlash over the last 17 year Ahmad and many like him, according to NBC and others are still very worried, but there is an easy solution to allay his fears.

This may seem counterintutative to some but the people who will most benefit from extreme vetting are people like Ahmad. Muslim Americans.

You see as long as the vetting of immigrants is suspect Jihadist will keep getting in and as long as Jihadist keep getting in to attack American Muslims like Ahmad will find themselves suspected.

However if vetting of immigrants is extreme enough to keep potential jihadists out by definition there are less potential Islamic terrorists here, and people’s confidence that American Muslims aren’t here to make jihad against the US increases. If that is combined with American Muslims vetting their own communities for either radical imam’s trying to radicalize communities or individuals who might get radicalized online that will really change the picture.

In the end every jihadist that Trump’s program keeps out is insurance against Muslim American’s fears of a backlash.

Because of this they should be the first to come out and say: “We Muslim Americans support extreme vetting because as far as we are concerned Jihadist and Radical Islamists are not welcome here. After all many of us came here to get away from that kind of thing.”

The day such an anouncement is made on behalf of the American Muslim community is the beginning of the end of the war on terror.


As I have no sexual secrets of rich liberals to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing interviews all the time hoping people like it enough to pay for it.

Red Oak MosqueBy John Ruberry

Belgium–part French and part Dutch–has been a schizophrenic nation since its founding in 1830. But after last month’s deadly terror attacks in Brussels–which is one-quarter Muslim–the country may be coming together under “European values.”

The Belgian secretary of state for asylum and migration, Theo Francken, is proposing the what is being called “a newcomer’s statement,”  which covers non-European Union migrants who stay more than three months.

The plan is expected to become law later this year.  Migrants covered by the law will be forced to sign a pledge to not only to uphold European values, but to oppose terrorism and to report any possible terror attacks.

Those not integrating properly will be kicked out of Belgium.

Despite groups such as CAIR claiming that Islam and the West have shared values, the reality is much different.

Here is just a partial list of the cultural contrasts: Europeans usually marry whoever they want–and that includes members of the same gender–whereas Muslims often rely upon arranged marriages. Religion–if they have one–is a private affair for most Europeans, Muslims follow an absolutist faith that governs all segments of their lives; in fact many Muslims favor eschewing what they dismiss as “man-made law” for sharia, that is, Islamic law, which includes the amputation of hands for thieves and the stoning of people who have extra-marital affairs. Feminists may disagree but men and women enjoy equal rights in Europe. Muslim women are subservient to men as a rule.

Europeans for the most part like the continent the way it is–many Muslims want to culturally annihilate it and make it as Islamic as the Middle East.

If the Euro-Muslims win out it is their values that will be European ones.

Europe is in for a rough ride no matter what the outcome of this clash of civilizations.

The West is repeating a mistake, a very recent one, says Daniel Greenfield. Greenfield points to the startling similarities between nascent international socialism from a century ago, the rise of Islamism in the present, and the impotence of the West in nipping both in their cradles. There are even parallel American presidents in the mix, both from the Democrat Party, and both with sympathies to the contemporaneous ideologies. Islamism has even infiltrated itself into Western institutions—exactly as the Organized Left did.

Greenfield claims that the West will lose to Islamism because it “doesn’t really want to defeat Islamic terrorism.”

It responds to terrorism while ignoring the ideology. And then it roots around for root causes that coincidentally turn out to all involve progressive policy priorities like economic inequality and global warming.

But novelist Matthew Bracken sees no such ignorant innocence in the reaction of the Organized Left to Islamic world ascendance, especially since Islamism is infiltrating the West not just ideologically, but corporeally.

The accelerated pace of the 2015 Muslim hijra [jihad by immigration] invasion [of Europe] was conceived, planned and executed by Quisling traitors comprising the elite leadership of the European branch of the international socialist movement, headquartered in Brussels. To paraphrase British nationalist patriot Paul Weston, if a farmer deliberately inserts a fox into the henhouse, who is guilty of killing the hens?

Now, today, across Europe the stage is being set for the genocide of the weak, confused and defenseless European hens. Former East German Communist functionary Angela Merkel achieves high marks at both Muslim fox insertion and German hen repression. (Meanwhile, former Soviet Communist KGB Colonel Vladimir Putin evolves to become a Russian nationalist who always advances Russian interests, at least as they are perceived by himself and his cronies).

(…)

In reality, the international socialists and the Islamist forces have agreed upon a murder pact, wherein their common enemy, the nationalists, will be removed as a threat to either of them forever. In 2016, European nations will deliberately be torched, in order to finish off their people’s last remaining notions of national pride and cultural identity. In effect, the coming conflict will constitute an agreement about the dinner menu made between a jackal, a hyena, and a supremely stupid bliss-ninny lamb, who was raised on Utopian multi-cultural fantasies. The lamb believes that by its own sweet example, the jackal and the hyena can be turned into vegetarians—but the choice for the dinner entree is already a foregone conclusion. European nationalists will be shot and stabbed in their fronts and their backs until they go down and are consumed by both of their rapacious destroyers.

(…)

If the traitor elites can imagine sufficiently far into the future, then they must surely see international socialism lining up next for its climactic struggle against Islam, which shall be fought atop the still-warm corpse of European nationalism.

Bracken says that Islam will win the follow-on conflict because the elites will have no problem converting to Islam—or, at least, pretending to. But, in the end Islam will win because

you can live without accepting a suitcase full of Euros or a juicy job offer as a bribe. But you cannot live with your head removed from your shoulders.

So which scenario is true? I know what I think, but in reality, that does not matter. There has to be another option for the endgame.

Meanwhile, in the wake of San Bernardino, Americans observe, think, and react, in spite of rhetoric and planned tyranny of our own Leftists.

I wrote about reverse mortgage a bit ago and it hit me it’s a perfect analogy for what is going on demographically in Europe, borrowing for the present and letting someone else pay the bill later.  A great example of this is happening now in Germany.

The German government expects to receive 1.5 million asylum seekers in 2015, and possibly even more in 2016. After factoring in family reunifications — based on the assumption that individuals whose asylum applications are approved will subsequently bring an average of four additional family members to Germany — that number will swell exponentially. This is in addition to the 5.8 million Muslims already living in Germany.

What does that mean?  Well Mark Steyn has done the math based on the german birthrate (1.3) and the European Muslim birthrate (3.5) and computes that even if no other Muslim comes to Germany they will outnumber ethnic Germans 2-1 in German in just two generations.

Now if they were assimilating it would be no big deal but as Doug Ross reminds us :

Virtually none, and I do mean none, of these people have any intention of assimilating into the cultures where they “migrated” to. They have every intention of planting their culture in those places and demographically guaranteeing its survival.

Now you would think that a large migration of people whose culture embraces throwing gays off of roof, punishing their women for the crime of being raped and comes from nations with  legal systems where a non-muslim’s testimony is worth as much as a believer might provoke a unified national response.  You’d be wrong:

According to the president of the Bavarian Association of Municipalities (Bayerische Gemeindetag), Uwe Brandl, Germany is now on track to have “20 million Muslims by 2020.” The surge in Germany’s Muslim population represents a demographic shift of epic proportions, one that will change the face of Germany forever, “but we are just standing by, watching it happen.”

Well of COURSE you’re doing nothing, you’ve chosen a secular progressive society and the primary rule of secular progressivism is the now trumps the future. It’s the reverse mortgage principle applied to demographic change.

Consider:  Enforcing the secular progressive culture on the muslim “immigrants” involves risk both physical and legal. If the new “immigrants” are not willing to obey the laws and respect the customs of the nation is the policeman willing to risk life and limb to enforce those laws, is the teacher willing to risk assault? Is the alderman willing to risk the slashed tire or the schoolyard kid willing to risk the beating?  Or even if it’s not a physical issue, what about the lawsuits? Is an employer willing to risk a discrimination suit that could ruin him? A co-worker willing to face the wrath of the EU rules?

Why would the current Secular progressivism German generation take any of these risks to their current comfort or safety when all the problems it will lead to come in a future they might not even be alive for or will be in retirement perhaps in another country?  Let the future generations handle it, it’s not my problem

It’s an old Napoleonic tactic Europe has seen before:

You know his tactics; Your Excellency; A demand for concessions and when the concessions are granted then new demands each one more weakening than the one before, until the object of his attention is either too weak to oppose him further or is at least so weakened as to make armed resistance fatal.

C. S. Forester Commodore Hornblower p 167 1945

In a reverse Mortgage the borrower builds up not equity but debt and when it comes due at death his heirs have choice, keep the home at an incredible cost, or abandon it to the debtors

Germany’s elites have taken out a reverse mortgage on their country’s future.  They’re willing to trade peace and quiet now and will be happy to let future generations either pay off the debt or leave the house to the new owners.

The surprise isn’t that Germany is doing this, the surprise is that given its post Christian culture that anyone expected otherwise.
