Leaders Who Suggest Curbing Muslim Immigration
Citizen Warrior 17 September 2012
On the one hand, we know some Muslim women want to move to free countries to get away from Islam, and don't feel they can safely become apostates until they arrive safely in the free country. On the other hand, we have no idea what a Muslim will do when she or he arrives. Will they have ten children and teach them all to be orthodox Muslims? A British study found that second generation Muslims are more likely than their parents to be orthodox, which seems to imply that it doesn't matter if the parents are "radical" or not. It only matters that they consider themselves Muslim.
To be on the safe side, shouldn't we limit Muslim immigration until this kind of thing can be sorted out?
Looking around the world, we can see that the larger the percentage of Muslims in a given country, the more strongly and successfully the politically-active orthodox Muslims among them press for concessions to Islamic norms. Stopping Muslim immigration seems a sensible, obvious, self-preserving measure for a country to take, doesn't it? What do you think? Leave a comment on this article or email me and I'll post it for you.
I'm not the only one to advocate putting a stop to Muslim immigration, of course. Pim Fortuyn led one of the most consequential efforts so far to end Muslim immigration, in his case, to the Netherlands.
In an interview, Mark Steyn was asked, "What should the United States do?"
He said first the U.S. should stop "ideological subversion," meaning we should prevent people like the Saudis from buying their way into places where they have influence, like Middle Eastern studies on college campuses, and building mosques here that teach orthodox Islam, and so on. He said, "If you are not on ideological offense, you're going to get rolled."
Second, he said, "Unless you have real serious cultural confidence, you should not have mass Muslim immigration."

In an article on stealth jihad, this quote is applicable:
"Analyzing the problem is one thing; solving it is another. Robert Spencer’s prescriptions on what to do will rankle some and lead to his further character assassination. He is at his best when calling for the government to impose existing laws — and most gets to the point when he calls for a revival of patriotism, the self-assurance necessary to deny Islamic encroachment, white liberal guilt, and multiculturalist recriminations of the greatest nation in the history of the world. He is at his most questionable in calling on the government to 'End Muslim immigration into the United States.'"
Two Australian politicians, Pauline Hanson and Paul Green, have called for a moratorium on Muslim immigration.
Geert Wilders, Wafa Sultan, and the late Oriana Fallaci have also recommended stopping Muslim immigration.
So what do you think? Should free nations stop or limit Muslim immigration? Why? What about the heterodox Muslims? Should they be taken into consideration? Do you think it is unfair to discriminate like this?
