Former Navy SEAL Benjamin Smith was speaking at the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention on January 19th. He called Barack Obama a Communist and a Muslim traitor. He also dropped a Koran on the ground.
There is irrefutable proof that it is Islam, not poverty, that causes terrorism. A three decades long study shows that as worldwide poverty has declined, terrorism has increased.
Democrats are constantly on the attack. Whenever they recognize an opportunity to promote one of their destructive aims, they will do anything necessary. As we have seen over and over again, this means lying. John Kerry–the slug who plays the Secretary of State on television (don’t tell me the Democrats’ low information supporters know any better)–is among the best liars his party has. Kerry almost lied his way into the Oval Office a few years back, you will recall.
During a recent meeting with a representative of the Vatican, Kerry took the opportunity to lie to suck up to the Muslims in his effort to get them to abandon their eternal goal of wiping Israel off the map.
What Kerry said was that poverty (and of course “disenfranchisement” – a favorite Democrat word usually used when they are caught committing fraud) causes terrorism. This lie gives Kerry and his party a few advantages. They can get cover from a Papacy that already blames poverty for all of the world’s ills, and they further reinforce the lie that Islam is a “Religion of Peace.” Kerry pushes aside the fact that Islam is actually just another failed economic system created by people who knew and know nothing about how thriving economies work.
As “an important member of Barack Obama’s Cabinet,” Kerry must have been told about the results of a huge and exhaustive study of the results of America’s benevolent introduction of free market principles to the world. The study completed by economists Maxim Pinkovskiy of MIT and Xavier Sala-i-Martin of Columbia shows that over a thirty six year period, the percentage of the world’s people living on the equivalent of a dollar a day dropped from 26.8% to just 5.4%!
This drop is so great that it leaves no room for argument from the freedom-hating left. Poverty doesn’t incite Muslims to blow people up; they’ve lived in poverty for hundreds of generations. It is Islam that causes terror attacks. John Kerry knows this but lies about it anyway; he is a Democrat after all.
With frequent protests and violent attacks, there is no question Islam is on the rise in Britain – as it is across much of Europe. Recently released census information, however, shows just how sharply the population of young Muslims in the country has increased over the past decade.
The Office for National Statistics reported that about 10 percent of British and Welsh children under the age of five were registered as Muslim. This represents an 80 percent increase since the previous census was conducted.
Oxford University demography professor David Coleman called the result a “startling figure.”
The population shift becomes even more stark when considering the nation’s Muslim population by age. Among the general population, less than 5 percent of Britons identify themselves as Muslim. Data for the most elderly citizens – those over the age of 85 – shows less than 0.5 percent of the population adhere to the Islamic faith.
On the other hand, Muslim youth makes up a large and growing portion of British society. Individuals under 25 years old make up about half of the U.K.’s Muslim population.
Islamic births are a strong second to Christianity, which remains the country’s leading faith. One Islamic leader, Ibrahim Mogra of the Muslim Council of Britain, said the trend reflects Britain’s welcome reception of the faith.
“It’s not about Britain becoming a Muslim country,” he said, “but about Britain enabling the practice of Islam, which gives confidence to the vast majority of Muslims.”
While a free society should not exclude new citizens based solely on their faith, the impact radical Islam has had in the U.K. over the past decade has been incalculable. Public murders, demands for the implementation of Sharia law, and other outrageous spectacles have created widespread civil unrest.
Though Muslims – and those of any faith – should be encouraged to assimilate into the common culture, Britain instead seems to be capitulating to the foreign demands of its Islamic population. This trend will not only result in a more dangerous nation, but will turn Britain into a completely unrecognizable distortion of its former self.
