Muslims Are Not a Minority

The most persistent myth of the Western Dhimmi narrative is that Muslims are a minority and must receive special protection and accommodation. But Muslims are not a minority. There are 1.5 billion Sunni Muslims worldwide, outweighing Catholics as the next largest religious faction at 1.1 billion and Hindus at 1 billion. They are still a minority of the overall population in Western countries, but a demographically trending majority.

In the UK more people attend mosques than the Church of England, that makes Muslims the largest functioning religious group there. Mohammed was the most popular baby name last year, ahead of Jack and Harry. In France, in this generation, more mosques have been built than Catholic churches and in southern France there are already more mosques than churches. Mohammed-Amine is the most popular double name, ahead of Jean-Baptiste, Pierre-Louis, Leo-Paul and Mohammed-Ali.

In Belgium, 50 percent of newborns are Muslim and empty Belgian churches are being turned into mosques. The most popular baby name is Mohammed and of the top 7 baby names, 6 were Muslim. A quarter of Amsterdam, Marseilles and Rotterdam and a fifth of Stockholm is already Muslim. The most popular baby name in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam and The Hague is... Mohammed.

Europe's Muslim population doubled in the last generation, and is set to double again. By 2025, (a decade and a half away), a third of all births in the EU will be Muslim. The demographic writing is already on the wall. A third of Muslims in France and Germany are teenagers or younger, as compared to a fifth of the native population. A third of Muslims in the UK and Belgium are under 15 versus a fifth of the native population. Counting all age groups, they're a minority. But in generational demographics, Muslims are swiftly becoming a majority.

Looking at these numbers it is hard to argue that Muslims are a minority. They are not a majority at the moment, but majorities are not just a statistical snapshot, but a cultural and demographic trend. Countries are not defined by the past, or even by the present, but by the future. By the direction in which they are headed. And Europe's future is a Muslim majority. Most European governments have accepted that and are acting on it. There may currently be more warm European bodies than Muslim ones, but the culture is being steered by the assumption of an Islamic future.

America is not nearly as vulnerable to the Muslim demographic bomb, because it is less socialist and more multicultural. It also has no former Muslim colonies, like England or France. Or at least it didn't have any before. But the liberation of Iraq has touched off a swarm of 'refugees' moving to the United States. While some of them are Christian, the majority are Muslim. By law we are obligated to accept 5,000 a year. The 2008 target for Iraqi immigration was 12,000, far more than most of the former Soviet Union combined. Not significant numbers alone, but they are part of a bigger picture.

In 2005, almost 100,000 Muslims became legal residents of the US. In 2009, it was 115,000. And the numbers continue to rise each year. That means that already they make up around 10 percent of immigrants to the US. The number of Egyptian and Syrian immigrants has more than doubled since 9/11. The number of Turkish immigrants has more than tripled. The number of Afghanis has tripled. Somalis have gone up from nearly 3,000 to nearly 14,000 a year. Pakistan hit a high of 21,000 in 2009 and Saudis are up by 50 percent.

Not nation shattering numbers in and of themselves, but let's look at them in relation to birth rates.

The United States birth rate was 13.5. Pakistan's birth rate is 24.1. Egypt's birth rate is 24.6. The Saudi birth rate is 19.3. The Afghani birth rate is 37.3. The Somali birth rate is 42.7. What this means is that we are importing Muslim immigrants with a birth rate that twice or even three times higher than our own.

The United States birth rate is already inflated by its own immigrants, including large numbers of Latinos and the million plus Muslims already in the US, so the baseline numbers are even worse. But these numbers are bad enough, as the social services departments of Amsterdam or Malmo could tell you. We are not importing 115,000 Muslims a year. No, we're importing as many as 2,500 Muslim babies a year into our demographic pool.

Compare that to the 25,000 Korean immigrants in 2009, from a country with an average birth rate of 8.5. Increase Korean immigration fivefold until they outnumber the annual number of Muslim immigrants, and you still aren't even importing a 1,000 babies a year. A thousand Somali immigrants are the demographic equivalent of 5,000 Korean immigrants because the Somali birth rate is 5 times the Korean birth rate. The 25,000 Korean immigrants represent a mere 212 babies a year, but the 14,000 Somalis represent 600 babies a year.

This is how demographic suicide creeps up on nations. And this also is an incomplete picture. The Korean-American intermarriage rate is at over 50 percent. There are no statistics for Somali intermarriage rates in the US, but Muslims do not leave their religion upon marriage. And in Sweden and Norway, Somali intermarriage rates are very low. Which means the Little Mogadishus growing across the United States are not going anywhere. And given time, there will be a Little Mogadishu in your city too.

Despite all this Mohammed won't be the most popular baby name in the United States any time soon. But a Muslim population boom will sneak up on us. It already is. Yet population-wise Muslims are a minority. But are they really?

There are two kinds of minorities. The first kind come from countries where they were a minority or under foreign rule. The Irish, Jews, Tibetans, Armenians and Norwegians are all examples of that. The second kind of minority isn't really a minority at all. This 'minority' immigrates from countries where they are the ruling majority. They are not persecuted and are not escaping anything except living in a failed state.

These "Majority Minorities" are designated as minorities by political correctness, but they don't think of themselves as minorities or act like minorities. They are used to being the dominant culture and when they are hostile, it is not because of a sense of persecution, but xenophobia. While they are labeled minorities-- they actually behave like majorities.

Think of those immigration rallies where Mexican immigrants wave their flag and taunt and insult passerby, or demand their language everywhere and treat any opposition as a violent attack on their privileges. They are acting like the majority culture-- which in their minds they are. Much like the way pre-state Texans responded to Mexican demands. But the absurdity of PC protocols insists that the descendants of European settlers from Spain with their European language are a racial minority, even though they are a majority in their own countries and on the continent.

Muslims are also "Majority Minorities", who act with all the entitlements and privileges of a majority. When Somali cabbies refuse to carry airport passengers with duty free liquor or almost half of Muslims in the UK want Sharia law--  they are behaving as if they already are the majority entitled to force their culture, their law and their religion on the minority. And in their eyes, we are the minority, because they have no cultural tradition of how to be minorities. The Irish, the Jews and African-Americans have a cultural memory of being persecuted that they retain in song and story. But Muslims have rushed to wipe away the shame of briefly living under European colonialism by casting back to the golden age when they were the oppressors, reviving the Caliphate and lashing out violently at even the slightest criticism of their religion.

Muslims in America and Europe are still numerical minorities, but they act like majorities. And they are doing everything they can to become majorities. Treating them like minorities is a mistake, that Europe has already come to regret and that we are only beginning to learn the folly of. Muslims can either be a minority or a majority. If they choose to act like a majority, imposing their culture, religion and worldview on others-- then they should be treated like one.

No one deserves special accomodations and protections, regardless of minority status or lack thereof.

It's that whole "equal protection under the law" thing.

As soon as one group receives "special" accomodations, etc., "equal" is gone, for everyone.

It's funny when these people leave their islamic, sharia-based third-world hellholes to come here for a better life (or evangelism at swordpoint)or whatever, and immediately proceed to try to convert this into an islamic, sharia-based third world hellhole.

Whatever. I'll take and secure my accomodations, protections, and liberties myself.

Politicians who enforce special protections and accomodations for muslims, courts who side with sharia over our laws, and all other people who would subject us all to subservient dhimmitude can rot. They're just as guilty as are the imams spreading their "religion of peace" at the muzzle of a gun.

I'm really, really tired of all this garbage, and it isn't slowing down one bit. Tired, you know? Like, Indiana Jones tired, in the scene where he shoots the flashy scimitar-wielding assassin intent on killing him, in an anti-climactic conclusion to the shortest, would-be flashiest swordfight ever.

Before people scream OMG, that's violent talk..., it's hyperbole.

My meaning is, none of this drawn-out struggle would be necessary if we just nipped it in the bud.

We won't though. Europe, bursting at the seams under their Multi-culti "Camp of the Saints" paradise, is our future.

Hooray for us. We're doomed.

Liberals treat Muslims as if they were exotic pets and defend them as if they were an endangered species. As such, liberals will only abandon them when they grow too large or difficult to handle. Until then, they will look down upon the rest of us as unenlightened and cruel barbarians. It would be funny if it weren't so tragic.

Daniel, if you haven't already read it, I would recommend Mark Steyn's "America Alone". It speaks directly to your subject matter here in his typically articulate, sometimes humorous way.

The west's only hope is that the islamists would act prematurely, based on their infinite, infantile arrogance; because the majority of western citizens are simply too idiotic to face the direness of the situation, and too cowardly to act upon it, on their own.

And it is for this reason that I am making plans to emigrate to New Zealand from the UK as we speak - the country's finished. The muslim demographics are unstoppable. The UK is no longer the UK. Multiculturalism has turned it into a shadow of its former self in such a small space of time. It's not a country anymore - it's just an area of land that people live on. But that is just in the interim until it becomes a fully fledged Islamic Republic by the middle of the century. I'll probably be dead by then. I hope so - I don't want to live to see it. Not content with destroying the middle east, Islam now wants to destroy Europe and turn it into a backward, retarded sh*thole as well...

islam is a horrible ideology for human rights

5 key things about islam

1. mythical beliefs - all religions have these (faith) because its part of being a religion: having beliefs without proof until after the believer dies. the problem is people will believe almost anything.

2. totalitarianism - islam has no seperation of church and state: sharia law governs all. there is no free will in islam: only submission to the will of allah as conveniently determined by the imams who spew vapors to feather their own nests. there are no moderate muslims: they all support sharia law.

3. violence - islam leads the pack of all religions in violent tenets for their ideology & history: having eternal canonical imperatives for supremacy at all costs and calling for violence & intimidation as basic tools to achieve these goals.

4. dishonesty - only islam has dishonesty as a fundamental tenet: this stems from allah speaking to mohamhead & abrogation in the koran which is used to explain how mo's peaceful early life was superseded by his warlord role later.

5. misogyny - present day islam is still rooted in 8th century social ethics: treating females as property of men good only for children, severely limiting their activities, dressing them in shower curtains and worse.

conclusions ??

there really are NO redeeming qualities for this muddled pile of propaganda.

islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.

Muslims are being brought into our countries even though it is well known that jihad is an obligation in the Koran and that the Koran commands all nations and peoples to be conquered by Islam and subjugated under excessively cruel Islamic sharia law where defenseless non-Muslims have no human rights.

By allowing the massive Muslim immigration invasion, Western leaders are actively seeking the Muslim conquest of our countries. In all of history, there was never such a terrible betrayal.

Ted H said...

You're spot on Sultan, about Muslims acting like a majority. I've heard this very same thing during briefings. Their "Majority Minority" attitude creates a case of "the tail wagging the dog" in a non-Muslim society.

Grim reading for a European indeed. Maybe it is time for us English who wish to live as free men to consider leaving. That too is part of our cultural heritage and we have always done it, although mostly through choice rather than necessity.
Where to is the question. The northwestern United States looks possible- Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and the Dakotas. Away from the cities.
Or maybe the Ukraine and Poland but that is less attractive.
That it should come to this- ancient families considering leaving their native land- is the greatest indictment of a governing class and culture I can think of. My generation , that postwar spoilt and totally selfish one, is the worst generation in English history and I am disgusted by it. It is not even worth contempt.
A fine analysis and one our political and media elites cannot bring themselves to even discuss.

Dictator Houari Boumedienne said:

1974: In a UN speech, Boumedienne declares: "One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory."

Then again, it is written that they will be stopped or they would possess the land and fill the world with cities. Isaiah 14:22ish

Looking at the figures and the over-reaching bending of our laws to accommodate them, with no complaint from 'moderates' this suggests it will be in our generation .

As someone who has viewed Europe as a whole as culpable in the slaughter of its Jews, I was wondering what punishment would befall them for their cruelty and venality. They had sixty years to repent of their stupid sins, but they could not manage and so their fate has slowly become apparent to them. Their fate is to be dispossessed of that which they only too gladly took as booty plus everything else that they own. The rulers will become the ruled. The oppressors will become the oppressed. Those who viewed the Jews as strangers will become strangers in their own land. The thousand-year Reich will become the thousand-year conflict. Such irony deserves recognition so that it can be written about for future generations to ponder.

You're right, and it has been written about, yellow, the words we get like pogrom, inquisition, ghetto bear testament to this. You wanted to know what happens to us, I'll tell you: many European and British flags have a cross, but recently Catherine Ashton has deemed the word Christian to be 'not politically correct' , also Harriet Harman has stated that British law is no longer Biblical but European, so let's now see how fast we fall. we no longer have habeas corpus, you are now guilty before proven innocent, and anyone can haul you into a Europen gaol (including ex KGB) if they catch you breaking one of THEIR laws in UK. Please don't mock us tho, as your cup cannot be full whilst we are suffering; you too have your political casualties that have brainwashed the people. Kate b

Too late to stop Eurabia, then, eh?

Still time to stop Muslim immigration into the New World.

Politically impossible?

Well, yes.

Our own elites are fools and sellouts on this matter, just as are the European elites.

Islam is a blight on the soul of mankind. Surrendering into the slavery of Allah and the acceptance of what he has written as our fate, is as seductive as the songs of the sirens and as lethal...the West's only hope is in an education specially aimed at their women and men (In that order) but free of the politically correct and the moral relativism that led us into near blindness. Islam must be intellectually and courageously discredited as Christianity has been ever since the enlightenment. Only then would we have some hope for the redemption of a reformed enlightened Islam...if at all this is possible... otherwise the future seemed as blighting and waterless as an endless desert.
