Islamic States of America?

America is totally under attack isn't it? First Gaymerica, and now some want an Islamic America.

The Islamic States of America?
I have been saying this for several years now, in three books, scores of articles, and many public addresses. Now here is Daniel Pipes with more. He outlines the material in a recent Chicago Tribune article about the Muslim Brotherhood in the USA, and its goal to establish an Islamic state here, and then draws an important conclusion. From FrontPage, with thanks to EPG:
The hardest thing for Westerners to understand is not that a war with militant Islam is underway but that the nature of the enemy’s ultimate goal. That goal is to apply the Islamic law (the Shari‘a) globally. In U.S. terms, it intends to replace the Constitution with the Qur’an.
This aspiration is so remote and far-fetched to many non-Muslims, it elicits more guffaws than apprehension. Of course, that used to be the same reaction in Europe, and now it’s become widely accepted that, in Bernard Lewis’ words, “Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century.”

Because of the American skepticism about Islamist goals, I postponed publishing an article on this subject until immediately after 9/11, when I expected receptivity to the subject would be greater (it was published in November 2001 as “The Danger Within: Militant Islam in America”).

I argued there that the Muslim population in this country is not like any other group, for it includes within it a substantial body of people—many times more numerous than the agents of Osama bin Ladin—who share with the suicide hijackers a hatred of the United States and the desire, ultimately, to transform it into a nation living under the strictures of militant Islam.

Stacy, people are individuals..... And it seems that you are saying that all muslims are terrorists - and that's nonsense.

Also, I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts about Jerry Falwell's comments blaming gays, feminists and the ACLU for the September 11 attacks.
