National Origins Quotas Or Moratorium? America Smells The Coffee [Arab Invention]

In 1995,
discussing the stereotypical immigrant enthusiast
anecdotes about the immigrant valedictorian/
hardworking entrepreneur/ caring doctor etc
. etc. Peter

[W]e might, equally reasonably,
expect to see balancing anecdotal coverage like this:

…In February 1993, a gang of Middle
Easterners, (mostly illegally overstaying after entering
on non-immigrant visas—one banned as a terrorist but
admitted on a tourist visa in error) blow up New York`s
World Trade center, killing six and injuring more than
1,000!! In December 1993, a Jamaican immigrant (admitted
as a student, but stayed, illegal status automatically
regularized after marriage to a U.S. citizen) opens fire
on commuters on New York`s Long Island Rail Road,
killing six and wounding 19!!! WHAT`S GOING ON??!!?”

This is the
second attack on the World Trade Center. We will
eventually learn who the perpetrators and their
assistants are.

Last time they
were mostly illegal immigrants. Their status:

Nidal Ayyad, naturalized U.S. Citizen

Mohammad Salameh, a Palestinian,
entering the U.S. on a Jordanian passport.

Mahmud Abouhalima, Egyptian citizen
with a phony green card.

Omar Abdul Rahman (spelling varies)
, Egyptian wanted in
Egypt for his connection to the death of Sadat, fled to
US "taking advantage of a mistake made by US immigration
officers who were supposed to be checking a
` list" and thus legally resident. Egypt says he`s
still a citizen and some of them would welcome him back.

Ahmed Ajaj, a Palestinian with fake
Swedish passport.

This time, the
FBI has released a

of the 19 suspects (deceased) in the 9/11
attacks. But apparently, it is declining to release
details of their immigration status – perhaps for fear
of provoking a “backlash.” It has provided informtion on
only two:

Khalid Al-Midhar – Possible residence(s): San Diego, California and New York,
New York; Visa Status: B-1 Visa, but
B-2 Visa had expired.

Marwan Al-Shehhi – Date of birth
used: May 9, 1978; Possible residence:

Hollywood, Florida; Visa Status: B-2
Visa; Believed to be a pilot.

But all were
resident in the U.S. How?

A recent
unconfirmed report

that some were actually Arab-Americans, who
had achieved US citizenship, but not


Some things are
just too big to see. Immigration is one of them. Islam
is another. There are now 6 million Muslims in the
United States.
(Only 1 to 3 million Arabs, but they don`t
have to be Arabs. The Times of India reports that
two suspects in the WTC bombing are illegal immigrants

) An estimated 10 to 15 percent of these are
of the fanatical stripe that Daniel Pipes calls “Islamists.”
That`s an army of about 750,000 already present in the

Guess what? It
may be illegal to notice that fact.

Ask the head of the FBI:

[FBI Director Robert Mueller]

federal law enforcement is not singling out
Arabs. “We do not, have not, will not target people
solely based on their ethnicity,“ he said.

This is true.
They could have done that when

five Arabs boarded the doomed
plane at Boston`s
Logan Airport. But America`s lawyers had been hard at
work, suing airlines for racial profiling. So they
didn`t. Even

criticism of Islam
has been muted by the thought


by Kambiz
GhaneaBassiri in Los Angeles

that: “a significant number of Muslims,
particularly immigrant Muslims, do not have close ties
or loyalty to the United States."

“Indeed,” said
Daniel Pipes, who reviewed it, “his questionnaire shows
that 12 out of 15 immigrants and even 5 out of 15
converts feel more allegiance to a foreign country than
to the United States. 

This huge
demographic change happened after, and as a result of,
the 1965 immigration act. There were a few Muslims in

Migrations and Cultures : A World View
, Thomas
Sowell writes that there was a major difference between
the Japanese who immigrated to the US during the Meiji
Era (1868-1912)
, and those who
emigrated to Brazil during the Taisho era (1912-1926).

This difference was
dramatically demonstrated during World War II, when
Japanese Americans loyally supported the United States,
despite receiving harsh treatment as enemy aliens, while
the Japanese in Brazil, (treated much better) remained
so fanatically pro-Japan that many of them refused to
believe that Japan had been defeated even after its
unconditional surrender in 1945. Thousands of Japanese
in Brazil waited in port for the arrival of
“victorious” Japanese military forces in the Western
Hemisphere. In both the United States and Brazil, the
responses of the Japanese reflected the inner patterns
of a people, rather than the effect of the surrounding
society. Japan itself was quite different at the
different times when they emigrated—very pro-Western in
general and pro-American in particular during the
earlier era and fanatically nationalist and racist
during the latter area. 

Migrations and Cultures : A World View,

How are
Americans supposed to tell the difference between Meiji
and Taisho? How many of you have heard those words
before? And that`s exactly the same nation, just a
different generation. Does that mean that the

Hilaire Belloc,
a man no one would accuse of being in Israel`s
“amen corner” (trust me on this),

in 1936 that:

Millions of modern people of the white civilization,
that is, the civilization of Europe and America, have
forgotten all about Islam. They have never come in
contact with it. They take for granted that it is
decaying, and that, anyway, it is just a foreign
religion which will not concern them. It is, as a
fact, the most formidable and persistent enemy which
our civilization has had, and may at any moment become
as large a menace in the future as it has been in the

But he had no idea that they`d be a menace
our countries.

Of course, there is a simple answer to these problems: a
National Origins system. Discriminate in favor of
immigrants from civilized, culturally compatible
countries. Alternatively, don`t have any immigrants at

Immigration is still going on as I write. And most
Americans still don`t have a clue.

According to the

Miami Herald

at a ceremony swearing
new citizens – who no doubt
have been properly vetted – the president of the
University of Miami (Arab-American radical Democrat
Donna Shalala) said:

country`s strength is based on tolerance and the ability
of people from many nations to live side by side,
Shalala said. “Neither religion nor skin color nor race
matter here,“ she said.

Get it? She said
this after the September 11 attacks. Which showed
that diversity is actually weakness and that religion
matters if it exalts holy war…didn`t they?

Rudy Giuliani`s
cluelessness on the subject of immigration is a legend.
When Colin Ferguson, the Jamaican immigrant mentioned in
Alien Nation, shot up the Long Island Railroad,
or Ali Hassan Abu Kamal opened fire on the top deck of
the Empire State Building, Giuliani

called for
restrictions on the freedom of

At City Hall, Giuliani attempted
to shift the focus toward gun control.
He was
accompanied by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., whose
husband was killed and son wounded in the 1993 shootings
on a Long Island Rail Road commuter train that killed
six people and wounded 17.

In both
that incident and Sunday`s shooting, the gunmen
circumvented New York`s strict gun control laws by
traveling out of state to buy the murder weapons,
officials said.

"New York State, New York City have
great gun control laws," McCarthy said. "But as the
mayor said, we cannot control all the guns that
are coming in from other parts of the country and
that`s what has to be stopped."

He`s still
clueless. In a recent interview with Barbara Walters,


I don`t think we realize how good we
are. I think the people who want to come here realize
how good we are.
This is the only country millions
of people want to come to in the whole world. That`s got
to tell us something about ourselves. Tell us something
about what a wonderful country this is, what a great
form of government we have, what good people we are. And
maybe I feel that more than most because I`m the
mayor of New York City als

place that

Palestinian immigrant Sirhan Sirhan – he`s a member of
the first generation of his family to go straight.)

For years the attitude of the national press on the
subject of immigration has also been clueless, like the
man who “couldn`t get a clue during the clue mating
season in a field full of eager clues if he smeared his
body with clue pheromones and did the

mating dance of

Maybe the Arabs, who invented coffee, have finally
managed to wake people up.
