A reader, Dick, sent us this map (below) of the US which shows the number of mosques located in each state. There is a maybe not-so-surprising correlation to the top states receiving refugees.
By the way, as I noted in my little book, mosque construction is a way to stake-out territory often in advance of the arrival of any large population of worshipers of Allah. The mosque actually serves as the magnet for further migration to that location (the Hijra). Mohammed instructed his followers to migrate, to spread Islam, not just from country to country, but also from town to town and neighborhood to neighborhood.
Here are the Top Five States (for 2014) (in descending order) for refugee resettlement and in parenthesis is its position on the Mosque map. Coincidence?
Texas (#3 in number of mosques)
New York (#2)
Find out how many refugees your state has received this fiscal year (as of July 31st), here. Wow! It looks like OHIO has moved into the #6 spot—gee! I wonder why? Do they really think they will get all of those new registered voters signed up in time for the 2016 election? Ohio is pretty high up on the mosque map too!
Remember readers that the numbers depicted on this map only represent refugees brought to your state by the resettlement contractors. The numbers do not include those moving in to your state as ‘secondary migrants’ (refugees resettled elsewhere who decide to move to your state). They do not include asylum seekers or successful asylum seekers (called asylees) or the ‘unaccompanied alien children.’
For our Virginia readers, I see the number of mosques (map above) for the state is not clear. The number is 88.
