A new poll of American Muslims is very disturbing. Most of the Muslims in America, about 80% are non-practicing. This means that only about 20% of Muslims in America really desire Shariah Law. What would it be like in America if this 20% gets the upper hand?
When Shahram was born in Iran it had a predominately Muslim population, but most of them were cultural Muslims. They were not strong practicing Muslims. As we have said many times, there is no “moderate” Islam but there are “moderate” Muslims. Moderate Muslims are lukewarm. They practice some parts of Islam and not others.
There was a growing group of fundamentalist Muslims in Iran pushing for the rise of Islam. They were able to push the agenda forward and force a revolution. These fundamentalists wanted to live under Shariah law. This powerful minority was able to get their way over the majority who did not want Shariah law. As a result Iran has had an Islamic theocratic government since 1979.
We see the same principle at work in America. Last week we talked about the homosexual agenda and the Supreme Court’s ruling. How does less than 3% of a nation (probably really less than 1%) get so much power? They have to win others over to their side. It doesn’t take a majority to control a nation. Hitler started with a small minority of about 12%. An active, committed minority can easily control a passive majority.
The poll I mentioned above from the Center for Security Policy is very troubling because it shows that the number of Muslims who want Shariah in America has grown. In Iran the moderate Muslims were faced with a choice. They either had to go with the fundamentalists or their lives would be threatened.
Before we look at this survey I want to mention a very important concept in Islam. It is the concept of two houses, the House of War and the House of Islam. Fundamental Muslims understand that they are in one of these two houses or they are in transition from one to the other. Their goal is to bring every nation into the House of Islam. In Europe Muslims believe that they have the upper hand and Europe is now in the House of Islam.
In America most people believe that we are safe because there are only 3 million Muslims here. Those who are in the know, know that there are many more Muslims than this. There are probably more than 10 million Muslims in America and it is growing because of all of the refugees coming in. We believe that America is much closer to the tipping point that most Americans imagine. They have the upper hand because they have the White House and they have infiltrated the highest levels of our government. They have the media on their side. They have infiltrated our education system.
This poll shows that Muslims are now being honest about their goals. While they are in the House of War they are allowed to lie, but once they are in the House of Islam they are no longer allowed to lie. The results of the poll indicate that they believe they are in the House of Islam.
This poll includes Muslims from all around the country, not just those areas with high Muslim populations. It also includes all age and economic groups.
The report shows that 51%, the majority, of Muslims in America agree that they should have the choice to be governed by Shariah. We have been dealing with Muslims for years and we have never seen this high percentage wanting Shariah. It used to be that the majority of American Muslims said they did not want Shariah. They said they came here to get away from Shariah.
We saw in Europe, where the majority of Muslims wanted to get away from Shariah, that the militant Muslims started pressuring the non-practicing “moderates” to stand for Islam or be classified as non-believers. They are bullied by the fundamentalists, and even have their lives threatened. The fact that 51% of Muslims say, if given the choice, they want to be governed by Shariah is big news.
The poll also asked if Muslims should have the choice of being governed by Shariah courts or American courts. Again, 51% said they should have the choice to be governed by Shariah courts. We are still confronted with the Shariah tribunal in Texas that has not been shut down. In Great Britain there are more than 100 Shariah courts and Muslims are being governed by different laws than the rest of the country.
This poll is strong evidence that the militant, fundamentalist, Muslims are being emboldened. They feel that they now have enough power to get their way.
We have been in meetings where groups like CAIR have said they didn’t want Shariah in America, all they want is peace and equal rights. In spite of this, every time we try to pass laws to ensure that Islamic law does not come in, who is the biggest opposition? It is groups like CAIR.
