IS A MUSLIM BAN DISCRIMINATORY?

abe-lincoln-slaves

The fuss over the executive order relating to Muslims entering the US once again highlights just how ignorant most people are of history.   This is especially true of the left, who keep on repeating the mantra that discrimination is un-American.

Perhaps they have never heard of slavery, or maybe they just want to forget it as the Democrats were the party of slavery.

Anyway, discrimination has been common in American history, going right back to the first settlements in Jamestown and Massachusetts Bay.   Both colonies were founded by WASPs, for WASPs (White Anglo-Saxon Protestants).   The location of Jamestown was chosen to hide from Catholics intent on kidnapping Protestants.   At the time of independence from Great Britain, the thirteen colonies were 98% Protestant, 1% Catholic and 1% “Other,”  including Jews.

In 1857, the Supreme Court ruled that African-Americans could not be American citizens.   Again, remember, by this time the Republicans were campaigning for the end of slavery, while the Democrats were in support; this blatantly racist decision was made by a Court that was siding with the Democrats.   Right up until the 1964 Voting Rights Act, Democratic politicians in the South deprived blacks of the vote; while the whites voted for the Democrats as the party that supported the Old (pro-slavery) South.

In 1882, the Chinese Exclusion Act was passed by Congress.   The law was against ethnic Chinese, as even Chinese from British territories were not allowed.   The Act was renewed in 1892.

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has self-righteously announced that Canada will take in refugees America doesn’t want. Canada is another country going soft, also wallowing in ignorance of history.   His predecessor, Stephen Harper, apologized in 2006 for the 1923 Act of the Canadian parliament that banned Chinese immigration. Australia had a “White Australia” policy before 1972. Muslim countries routinely discriminate – it’s impossible for whites to settle in their countries and become citizens.   The same is true of most African countries.

As the first mosque was opened in the US in 1929, there were clearly few if any Muslim immigrants before that date.   Non-white immigration was strictly limited before the 1965 Immigration Act, which literally changed the face of America.

It should be remembered that in 1942, a Democratic president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, issued Proclamation No. 2537 “requiring aliens from World War II-enemy countries–Italy, Germany and Japan to register with the United States Department of Justice. Registered persons were then issued a Certificate of Identification for Aliens of Enemy Nationality.   A follow-up to the Alien Registration Act of 1940, Proclamation No. 2537 facilitated the beginning of full-scale internment of Japanese Americans the following month.”  (History magazine)

More recently, President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, banned Iranians (Muslims) from entering the US during the 1979-80 hostage crisis.

So, clearly, it is possible for the US president (and even Canadian and Australian governments) to put an end to Islamic immigration, if they want to.

And what about Europe?

A Muslim army tried to conquer Europe in the eighth century.   It was defeated in 732 at the gates of Paris, by the grandfather of the future Emperor Charlemagne.

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Muslim armies tried to take Vienna, at the heart of Europe.   They were defeated by Catholic armies.

There is no record of Austrians demonstrating to let them in!   That had to wait until 21st century liberalism, where half the population is besotted with ignorance of both history and comparative religion. The Catholics of 1683 knew that Islam was a pagan religion – they were terrified the Muslims might win and take over, ending their way of life.   Not so today’s churches who are more inclined to welcome immigrants and refugees.   Even the pope took in a family or two at the Vatican and has said that the building of walls is unchristian – it was walls in the Middle Ages that kept the pagans out, enabling citizens to stay safe.   It was Roman Catholics who built those walls.

In 1095, Pope Urban II called on the nations of Western Europe to launch a “Crusade” against Muslims who were killing and harassing Christians on pilgrimages to the Holy Land.   He called for Christian forces to retake the Holy Land.   Again, there were no demonstrations in the streets in support of Muslims – everybody knew the horror stories from the Middle East.   It’s true that Christians perpetrated horrendous acts against Muslims during the two centuries of the crusades, illustrating how the two religions cannot exist peacefully side by side.   This is another lesson not taught in today’s public schools!

It’s sad that the issue of immigration from Muslim lands has become a political football.   It would be a lot better if there were bipartisan agreement on the matter, but this is not going to happen. Consequently, the invasion will continue.   The Gatestone Institute revealed this week that Muslim immigrants arriving in Italy are shouting “Allahu Akbar” when they see the coast.   Why else would they be risking their lives to cross the Mediterranean Sea when they could simply walk into a neighboring Muslim country?   They see themselves as part of the Muslim army that is going to conquer Europe and the West.

Unless the Church and a political populist come together to try and save Western civilization!

Could Donald Trump lead the charge?   Or is it more likely that a European figure like Charlemagne will emerge to unite Europe and defeat the Muslims?   The biblical Book of Revelation speaks of a final revival of the Roman Empire (Revelation 17:12-14) that will deal with the Islamic threat from the “king of the south” (Daniel 11:40-43).

ATTACK IN MUNICH

A man in a Munich train station, shouting “Allahu Akbar” (Arabic for “God is great”) stabbed four German nationals this morning, killing one.

The BBC’s report of the incident illustrates the total denial common in western countries.

“Police are looking for a possible Islamist connection,” it says on the website.   The perpetrator of the act was a “German national.”  This is misleading.   Hundreds of thousands have become German citizens in recent decades, but they came from the Middle East or North Africa and retain their religion, identifying more with it than with Germany.

More such incidents are likely to follow in the western democracies.

DENIAL HIDES THE TRUTH

Pedestrian attack in Nantes
Pedestrian attack in Nantes

In my last post, I mentioned an attack on pedestrians in France. I neglected to mention that this was preceded by a knife attack Saturday night on two policemen in Tours by a 20-year-old recent convert to Islam. On Monday night, shots were fired into a synagogue in Paris. Yesterday, the country witnessed a second car attack on pedestrians, this time in Nantes. Eleven people were injured, one of whom, a 25-year-old man, died later from his injuries.

“(Prosecutor) Tarrare described the man (the attacker) as a French-born son of North African immigrants, acted alone and had no religious motivations, but was upset at the treatment of Chechen children. He shouted ‘God is great’ to give himself courage to act, and not out of religious belief, Tarrare said.” (Fox News website).

Denial clearly continues unabated on both sides of the Atlantic.

Today, France deployed an additional 300 troops to police potential targets during the busy Christmas shopping season. 780 had already been deployed in major pedestrian and shopping areas, like Paris’ famous Champs-Elysees. Almost immediately, a heavily armed man was detained in a market place, again in the city of Nantes. That’s a total of five incidents in five days.

In New York, the murders of two policemen by a deranged Muslim has been turned into a black and white incident, a continuation of the Michael Brown/Eric Garner deaths at the hands of white policemen. The Islamic connection is being overlooked.

It’s the same in France. Following the second car attack on pedestrians, the police are focused on the driver’s history of mental problems. He may well have been suffering from mental issues but this does not rule out a connection with Islamic extremism. Shouting out “Allahu Akbar” may indeed have given him courage but could also reflect religious fanaticism.

ISIS and other extremist groups are very active on social media, encouraging sympathizers around the world to stage “lone wolf” attacks of the kind that France has witnessed over the last few days. However, it seems suspiciously likely official reactions to such attacks will divert attention away from the Islamic connection. We’ve seen this in the last few days in France, the US and Australia.

GROWING PROBLEM FROM TERRORISM

Pakistan and Jordan have both restored the death penalty in the last few days.   This is aimed at dealing with Islamic extremism, which threatens both countries.

It actually threatens every country. It’s just that most don’t realize it yet.

A week ago exactly, we witnessed the Sydney hostage siege, perpetrated by an Islamic extremist who had a black ISIS flag held up in the window.

The following day, the Taliban attacked a school in Pakistan, killing almost 150 people, most of them teenagers. Only a few weeks ago, it was said that the Taliban and al-Qaeda were not as bad as ISIS. Let’s face it – they all share the same ideology and are very keen on killing.

The internet is helping them. The violent extremists can communicate with each other. Websites encourage sympathizers in the West, of whom there are many, to perpetrate “lone wolf” attacks, to strike fear in people.

On Saturday, a lone wolf assassinated two policemen in their police car in Brooklyn, New York. This was supposedly in retaliation for the deaths of two black men, shot by white police officers. But the murderer here was a Muslim, heavily influenced by what he had seen on the web, urging people to stage lone wolf attacks.

The following day, Sunday, thirteen people were injured when a driver deliberately drove his car into a crowd in the French city of Dijon. As he ran over the pedestrians, he was shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great, in Arabic). A police spokesman said the driver was suffering from “psychological problems.”

This is a typical police response, denial of the ISIS connection to stop the spread of panic.

But, as these incidents become more frequent, there will inevitably be more panic.
