Do Americans have anything at all to learn from a German guy who thinks intelligence is linked to genetics?
Thilo Sarrazin was pressured to quit his position over outrage regarding his use of contested scientific research claiming that intelligence is up to 80 per cent genetically determined – striking a raw nerve for many Germans.
Clearly, trying to draw a connection between genetics and intelligence is to go down a path towards horrors the world has already witnessed.
This alone has caused many to reject anything Sarrazin has to say, and yet, there is one aspect of his book that may actually have merit and has begun to create a backlash against Islam: the assertion that Muslim immigrants generally do not and will not integrate into a society.
“Islamic culture is responsible for the failure of migrants of Muslim background to integrate into German society.
Speaking at the launch of his book, Germany Abolishes Itself: How We Are Risking The Future of Our Nation, Mr. Sarrazin said that Muslims had â€” alone amongst migrant groups â€” singularly failed to integrate into society and were more of a burden than a benefit.
â€œAll major cultural and economic problems have concentrated themselves in the group of 5â€”6 million migrants from Muslim countries,â€ he said on Monday.
â€œWith immigrants from Eastern Europe, India, Vietnam … after the first generation there are no integration problems … they are indistinguishable from the German population,â€ the 65â€”yearâ€”old former Berlin state finance minister said.”
Is it outrageous for him to attribute the lack of integration to Islamic culture? Is it racist? Or is there something to it?
Mawlana Sayid Abul Ala Mawdudi was an Islamic scholar whose writings are famous to Muslims and who is considered one of Islam’s greatest scholars. He said,
“Islam is not a normal religion like the other religions in the world, and Muslim nations are not like normal nations. Muslim nations are very special because they have a command from Allah to rule the entire world and to be over every nation in the world.”
He explained Islam’s goals and purpose:
“Islam is a revolutionary faith that comes to destroy any government made by man…Islam doesn’t care about the land or who owns the land. The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam.
Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy. In order to fulfill that goal, Islam can use every power available every way it can be used to bring worldwide revolution. This is Jihad.”
Here’s a quote from the chairman of the board of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Omar Ahmed, (“CAIR” – pay attention, you’ll be seeing that organization in the media a lot from now on)
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth”.
Do you see how this domineering Islamic culture, convinced that it is right and all others are wrong and must be destroyed, might get in the way of Muslims integrating into society – any society that does not submit to Islam?
So, Americans, those of you who insist we must allow Islam to build and grow in our country because we have an obligation to protect Freedom of Religion – I put to you that if you hold Freedom of Religion dear, or any form of personal freedom not covered by Islam, then you must resist Islam or eventually that freedom will be taken from you.
You’re not going to see open aggression early in the campaign, these early stages are the time to build up numbers and political clout and to influence public opinion. But when Islam has gained enough power, the soft words will end and it will be submit to Islam or else.
Until they have that level of power they will continue to rely on your ignorance and tell you sweet-sounding lies, and they will attack anyone who dares to tell the truth or get in their way, make them out to be Islamophobic or bigoted.
Germany is in danger of abolishing itself, is America in danger of giving away its Freedom under the guise of Freedom of Religion?
Being ignorant about your enemy can be fatal. Make no mistake: Islam is your enemy. It is time to begin learning just how real the threat is.
