| How Islam plans to conquer the West without using weapons

— Many in the West today are grappling with how Islam has been able to
get a foothold in our society. We know of Islamists' present-day means
to get government officials to capitulate to their whims through
lobbying and the mainstream media, presenting themselves as victims of
the same Western society that has helped them. But how have they been
able to acquire such political leverage? Apparently, there has been a
willful lack of circumspection or foresightedness.<
Back in the 1970s, the late archbishop Marcel Lefebvre said:
As long as Muslims are an insignificant minority in a Christian
country, they can live on friendly terms, because they accept the laws
and customs of the country that receives them. But as soon as they
become numerous and organize, they become aggressive and try to impose
their laws, which are hostile to [Western] civilization.
Protagonists such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar — both supposed allies of
the United States and the European Union — have been able to forge or
manipulate situations involving politicians and the mainstream media
directing attention to military conflicts in the Middle East, such as
Syria and Afghanistan, or "exclusively" focusing on the Iranian regime
as the principal source of terrorism.
As Ayaan Hirsi Ali explained,
because of the West's obsession with terror, we have become blind to
the broader threat of the dawa
(Islamic proselytizing), the ideology behind the terror attacks — and
what drives numerous Muslims to Islamize us. In other words, by leading
us to believe that the threat of Islam is only in distant lands,
Islamists have been able to conceal their ultimate weapons of
Islamization: exploitation of democracy and pluralism, immigration, and
the multiplication of progeny.
Since its foundation, Islam has always been transnational as it
spread across the world, when the nation-state and national identity
were at best inchoate and more often nonexistent. This has impelled many
Muslims, regardless of their views of democracy, to utilize the
democratic instruments of pluralism and freedom of expression to insert
themselves into society with the goal of propagating Islam at the
expense of others.
The most salient example has been the election of
Ilhan Omar to the House of Representatives. Notwithstanding marrying her own brother,
Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, to get him a green card to the U.S., even before
being sworn into Congress on a Quran, she successfully demanded that
Congress reverse a 181-year ban on the wearing of any headgear on the
floor of Congress. In her case, she was able to wear the hijab, a piece
of religious attire, when lawmakers cannot even display a cross.
