Do you know that there are 15,000 Muslims serving
U.S. armed forces? Are you aware that the U.S.
military has Muslim Imams?
Following September 11, Captain Abd Al-Rasheed
Muhammad, Imam of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in
Washington D.C., asked the
North American Islamic Jurisprudence Council if it
is permissible for Muslim troops in the U.S. military to
fight other Muslims in the war against terrorism.
The Council referred the matter to Muslim clerics
abroad, who issued a Fatwa permitting U.S. Muslims to
fight if there was “no alternative.”
Whew! The chain of command of the U.S. military
remained intact. But not for long. The Middle East Media
reports that the Arab clerics reconsidered and
withdrew permission on October 30, issuing a new Fatwa
prohibiting U.S. Muslim troops from participating in
U.S. attacks on Muslim forces.
Can you see where multiculturalism has brought us?
The chain of command in the
U.S. Army has Arab clerics at its head.
The idea of a multicultural state is an obvious
insanity. The problems of multicultural politics led to
the breakup of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. In our own
time we have witnessed the breakup of the multicultural
Yugoslav state and Russian Empire.
Why do so many educated people believe
multiculturalism will work in the U.S.? Or do they
The political left endorses multiculturalism as an
assault on U.S. national identity. Libertarians endorse
multiculturalism, because they favor anything that
dissolves the state, and there`s no better way to
dissolve a state than to dissolve national identity.
endorse multiculturalism, because they see it as
endorsement of American values by outsiders. The
unending flood of immigrants from different cultures is
the neoconservatives` answer to the
denigration of American values by the political
These positions are understandable if incompatible,
but none are legitimate reasons for constructing a
political Tower of Babel.
Even under the old rules of the
“melting pot,” it is doubtful that the U.S. could
assimilate the high rate of
third world, non-European immigration it has been
experiencing for the past
three decades. Under the multicultural Balkanization
policy in effect, non-assimilation is a guaranteed
Of all the hyphenated-Americans, Muslims pose the
greatest challenge. Islam assimilates neither into a
Judeo-Christian civilization, nor into a secular one.
Secular Muslim states are experiencing difficulties
themselves and have to rely on force to remain in power.
The assimilation of Muslims in the U.S. would be
daunting even for a culture aware of the challenge. It
became impossible when civil rights policy turned every
hyphenated-American into a
“preferred minority” and endowed them with special
U.S. civil rights policy not only turned native-born
whites into second class citizens, but also prevents the
implementation of sensible airport security measures.
reports that in 1999 the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission forced Argenbright Security Inc.,
which provides airport security, to rehire seven fired
Muslim non-citizens, five of whom are citizens of
countries on the State Department`s terrorist blacklist.
According to the EEOC, “preferred minorities”
do not have to be U.S. citizens in order to benefit
from elevated group rights.
There you have it.
Homeland Security, airport security, and in-flight
security are all jokes. U.S. civil rights privileges for

The seven Muslims were fired because they refused to
stop wearing their
telltale head wraps, making U.S. citizens very
nervous passing through airport security after the
Muslim bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa.
With the help of the EEOC, Muslim non-citizens have
established that they must make
no concession whatsoever to the Western culture that
So much for the claims that the
unassimilable are being assimilated. The U.S. has
forsaken national identity for a Tower of Babel.
