Islam Is Alive And Well In America
Could you imagine in the year 2040 what used to be the White House is now the White Mosque and the flag fluttering above the U.S. Capitol is not the Stars and Stripes but one emblazoned with a crescent and star? Chants of “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is the Greatest) rise from inside the building where U.S. lawmakers meet and the Super Bowl is being played at Ayatollah Khomeini Stadium.
Such provocatives — posted on Prophecy News a couple of years ago — were part of Robert Ferrigno’s novel Prayers for the Assassin (2006) and a documentary-style movie, obtained by The Washington Post that envisioned radical Muslims taking over the country and remaking it into the “Islamic States of America.”
Well, it may just seem as if Allah’s mandate to the Prophet Muhammad “to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger” (Sahih al-Bukhari 1, 23) is on the road to being fulfilled in America.
Biden’s Pro-Islamic Stance
On Wednesday, Sameera Fazili, the Deputy Director of National Economic Council in the Biden administration, made her appearance at a White House press briefing. Fazili, an Indian-American, participated in the White House Press Briefing wearing a hijab — a symbol that Islam is alive and well in America, thanks to the new White House administration.
Sameera, who originally hails from Kashmir, shared the press briefing with White House spokesperson Jane Saki and addressed various issues on the Biden administration’s move to secure critical US supply chains and create jobs in the country. The images and videos of Sameera wearing the ‘hijab’ at the press conference have now gone viral.
This subtle Islamization of America should not come as a surprise, especially since the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood has embedded itself in America, thanks in part to Joe Biden.
The Muslim Brotherhood members, already in the U.S. thanks in part to the support from the then-Obama-Biden administration, emphasize that they follow the laws of the nations in which they operate. They stress that they do not believe in overthrowing the U.S. government, but rather that they want as many people as possible to convert to Islam so that one day — perhaps generations from now — a majority of Americans will support a society governed by Islamic law.
In June 2015 the Center for Security Policy found that 51 percent of Muslims in the U.S. stated that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to sharia.” Their poll also showed that 20 percent of American Muslims believe that the “use of violence in the United States is justified in order to make sharia the law of the land;” 25 percent of them stated that violence is acceptable to punish those who offend Islam.
Islamic Support from Congress and Supreme Court
It must be made clear that the Fazili hijab scene was already in the works under the Trump administration:
- In May 2019, Imam Omar Suleiman — who has previously called for violence against Israel — founder and president of the Irving, Texas-based Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research, delivered the invocation at the opening of Thursday’s House session after an introduction from Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
- In October 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court denied a petition — it takes four out of the nine Justices to vote Yea in order to hear a case — presented by the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) to hear Wood v. Arnold, a case brought by Caleigh Wood, a Christian student in the 11th grade at La Plata High School in Maryland. Wood refused to take part in a school exercise she felt would deny her faith “by making a written profession of the Muslim conversion prayer known as the shahada — ‘There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah’.”
The TMLCargues the school violated the First Amendment’s Establishment and Free Speech clauses when it ordered Wood to do an assignment that she could not complete without violating her Christian beliefs; the teacher then gave her a failing grade.
This is not just a violation of the First Amendment but an ongoing, albeit subtle, diffusion of Islam in our Western society.
The teacher’s actions were originally condemned in court by the high school’s content specialist, Jack Tuttle. Richard Thompson, TMLC’s chief counsel, said he’s “not aware of any public school which has forced a Muslim student to write the Lord’s Prayer or John 3:16: ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life’.”
Incidentally, on the North Wall frieze of the Supreme Court building there is a depiction of the Prophet Muhammad holding the Quran. The sculptor, Adolph Weinman, with government sponsorship, created the image—even though Muslims generally have a strong aversion to sculptured or pictured representations of their Prophet.
All of this should not be disappointing, rather, it should be a wake-up call that Islamists. With the advocacy of groups such as the terrorist-linked Council for American Islamic Relations — which embraced both former President George W. Bush and President Joe Biden for their pro-friendly Islamic positions — it is apparent that with the ongoing capitulation of left-wing politicians to so-called friendly and peaceful Muslim groups, Islamists are in an ideal position to gain a further foothold in our society.
The fact that some Muslims live peacefully in the U.S. is not disputed. The issue here is when Islam is imposed upon us under the pretentious argument promoting religious harmony when in fact our religious freedom is curtailed, if not stripped away, in order to facilitate the whims of Islamists who only seek to Islamize our society.
