Cal Thomas is right. Most people still aren’t taking this threat seriously, and their attention is focused instead on chimeras and, worst of all, on those who are trying to call attention to this threat. From the Sacramento Bee, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
Beginning with the Revolutionary War, when British agents and sympathizers attempted to derail independence, people have tried to infiltrate the United States for the purpose of undermining and destroying it. In modern times, communism and fascism have sent agents among us, but we discovered their plans and defeated them here and abroad.
Now comes what may be the greatest threat: radical Islam, whose “agents” may have established a base more solid and more dangerous than anything we’ve encountered before. The good news is they speak openly of their intentions. The bad news is that many of us are not taking them seriously….
The West does not know how many share this twisted religiosity. Instead, political leaders repeat the bromide that Islam is a “peaceful religion” and radicals are trying to hijack it. Are we being infiltrated by people who, on the outside, pretend to be peaceful and tolerant, but inside wish to overthrow our government?
One clue may be found on (http://muslim-canada.org/muslimstats.html), a Canadian Muslim Web page. In a discussion on Muslim population statistics, which includes a chart projecting that the world Muslim population will outgrow the Christian population by 2025, it is noted that Islam is growing nearly 3 percent per year, faster than the total growth in world population. While the ratio of older to younger people is weighted to the older in the West, the reverse is true among Muslims. We have been warned.
