Blogger: How Islamic Immigration Reverses Civil Rights in the West

Using the UK as a primary example, blogger Sultan Knish has written an essay I highly recommend you read.   I’ve never seen this blog, but plan to visit frequently from now on.  Here is a paragraph to wet your appetite and to remind readers that Sweden, and Australia too, are having  really tough times coping with their large numbers of Muslim immigrants unwilling to accept Western society’s civil rights.

The epidemic of gang rapes by Muslim immigrants in Sweden, Australia and elsewhere in the West are a cultural and religious problem that goes unacknowledged. They are the outgrowth of a belief system that views first non-Muslims and especially non-Muslim women as inferior and open to the taking. But they could not continue without a political and academic climate that discourages any criticism of Islam, and presumes that Western beliefs are inherently bad and non-Western beliefs are inherently good.

And here is her (I assume Sultan Knish is a ‘she’, the eyes are too pretty for a ‘he’) concluding paragraph.

King Sharia rules across Europe, violence and brutality is his penal code, and the silence and complacency of nations is his throne. The challenge is to uproot that throne before it hardens and becomes permanent. Before custom becomes law, that generations have grown up with. And the paradox is that it is the very people aiding Muslim immigration who have the most to suffer from it. The ideal of a liberal society is incompatible with a Muslim society. The two cannot and will not co-exist for long. Either the Sword of Islam or the Guarantees of Human Freedom must prevail.

Shariah finance helping Muslim immigrants in Minnesota buy up foreclosed homes

Update March 10th:  Atlas Shrugs has more on this story here.

Shariah finance is something we haven’t touched on very often at RRW, mostly because this author (I’m not speaking for Judy) is a dunce when it comes to understanding this sort of special financing for Muslims.  Today the Associated Press tells us that Shariah finance, an important component of Shariah law, is creeping into the US through none other than a state government program.     Hat tip:  Mars

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – For many Minnesota Muslims, it’s been virtually impossible to buy a home, because Islamic law forbids the paying or charging of interest. To help close the home ownership gap among Muslim immigrants, the state’s housing agency has launched a new program offering Islamic mortgages.

Islamic law does make exceptions to the ban on interest, if one’s family is at stake. But the exceptions are open to interpretation and for many observant Muslims, conventional mortgages are strictly taboo.

Nawawi Sheikh is one of them. The Somali-American said he and his wife just couldn’t go against their beliefs, even if it meant giving up their dream of owning a home. Still, he grew tired of moving from one rented apartment to another.

“One thing I hated was moving. I don’t like to move all the time,” he said.

He has no plans to move again anytime soon. Sheikh is the first home buyer to get a loan through the state’s New Markets Mortgage Program. That’s because, program manager Nimo Farah said, he has all the makings of a successful homeowner.

To learn more about this form of stealth jihad, see Shariah Finance Watch blog here.  They have posted on this same AP story here.

Our previous posts on Shariah Finance are here.   Note all of our previous stories involve government sanctioning of these unusual mortgages, not purely private banking.

Washington Times Op-Ed: Bringing Rohingya to the US mainstream media

Today the Washington Times published an opinion piece by Heidi Kingstone entitled, “Yes, Buddhists can be bad” about the plight of the Rohingya Muslims in Burma and Bangladesh.

After relating the recent problems when Rohingya attempted to enter Thailand illegally, Ms. Kingstone goes on to make the case that the Rohingya are desperate and in an intractable situation.

Then the story (of the Rohingya boatmen) disappeared, but not their impossible circumstances. These persecuted and displaced refugees lived in Burma for many generations, yet are stateless. The government refuses to recognize these Muslims as citizens of the largely Buddhist country. Instead, the government makes the lives of this minority intolerable. By doing so, the government hopes the million or so who remain will follow the other 250,000 who have slipped over the border into the eastern part of Bangladesh. (For a report on the plight of Burma’s Christians, see The Washington Times, March 6, p. A-12).

The Rohingyas and the Bangladeshis of the Chittigong region speak a similar language, are physically alike, and practice the same religion. Over the last two decades, they have fled in successive waves, looking for sanctuary.

But Bangladesh has enough of its own problems. It is desperately poor, prone to natural disasters, with more than 150 million people crammed together on low-lying land with few resources to feed and house its own people, let alone absorb the Rohingyas.

No doubt the situation is bleak as it is in many third world countries, but what annoys me so much about these stories designed to get an emotional response from readers is that there is never any mention of radical Islamic activity or association of the Rohingya with terrorist organizations in a story so obviously written to gain sympathy.    Frankly, I would have more sympathy if there was acknowlegement by the media that this is one reason the Rohingya are feared in countries like Thailand and India.

The author is either not informed or is purposefully ignoring reports of Rohingya involvement with Islamic terrorist groups, for example here, here and here.

Could we please base our decisions on how to help by knowing all the facts!
