There's a review on American Thinker which doesn't mince words:
[A]uthors Sam Solomon, a former professor of shari'ah law and convert to Christianity, and Elias Al Maqdisi, an expert on Islamic teachings, explain the migration of Muslims to the Dar-al-Harb, the "land of war," as a religious edict with a basis in Islamic doctrine. They delineate the step-by-step process of this 1,400-year-old strategy of conquest. It is a transitional strategy which they characterize as the most important step in spreading Islam and preparing for jihad. From their carefully delineated treatise on Hijra, it is clear that migration in concert with military conquest comprise the bookends of Islamic expansionism.None of us is surprised, I guess. But as the book shows, Islamic law itself is rather clear on the subject: All is in the service of Allah. This fragment should sound eerily familiar to anyone living in a town with more then 1,000 inhabitants:
This first step of establishing the mosque as the center of local Islamic life and activities is mistakenly viewed by non-Muslims as merely the benign construction of houses of worship. Its true goal escapes notice, that of firmly establishing a purposeful non-integrated Muslim identity to advance the goal of Islamization.The end-game thus becomes almost inevitable. Read the whole review. Or better: buy the book! You won't much enjoy it, for the description of the different stages of Hijra sound too familiar for comfort. At the end I was wondering if we haven't lost, given up too much ground, already. I hope I am wrong.
Once the consolidation of the Muslim community occurs under the radar, the purposeful fight for special status and shari'ah follows. As dictated by the Koran and Sunnah, segregation from non-Muslims is a natural outcome of the advancement of the Hijra.
