So why drag it up?
Well, I think we may be entering the decisive phase of this first battle in what Samuel Huntington predicted to be the 'Clash of Civilizations'. Around Europe the problems with unfettered immigration, especially from muslim quarters is now undeniable and more and more generally accepted.
As recent as only a few years ago this would have been unthinkable, but despite the policor pressures in civil society, more and more people are starting to notice that reality does not exactly resemble the paradisical image projected by the multi-cult. The small example we pointed out a few days ago is but a small instance of reality biting.
Europe News published a review of the Solomon book over Christmas: The profound problem of Muslim immigration. It succinctly touches upon the problems that Solomon explains in his book and sheds a considerable light on the corrosive effects of islam in out society.
However, more important than the flagship violent jihad is the so-called 'Stealth Jihad', where Islamic law (Shariah) is quietly being implemented in our societies, usually in seemingly benign aspects of life, but leading to a constant affirmation of Islamic identity being more important to Muslims than honest integration in the host societies. Sam Solomon quotes extensively from scripture and interpretation, pointing out how Islam in itself constitutes a barrier to integration.Remember the stealth force feeding of halal foods?
Solomon argues that immigration is a tactic in the hands of those that want to conquer the world for islam. A tactic ordered by muslim sacred texts.
This first and foremost means the life and conduct of Muhammad, the perfect example for the pious Muslim even today. The authority of Muhammad is absolute in Islam, be it in form of Quranic commands or the examples of conduct recorded in hadith collections, known in Islam as the 'Sunna'. Hijra, immigration, was a key element in Muhammads takeover of Yathrib, today known as Medina.The conclusion of that paragraph is: Those who do not desire to live in an Islamic theocracy better take heed. To that we cannot add anything more.
Unfortunately, the concept of Hijra is not limited in time or space to 7th century Arabia. The command as given is absolute, and remains an obligation on Muslims. One of many hadith quotes Muhammad for this:
I charge you with five of what Allah has charged me with: to assemble, to listen, to obey, to immigrate and to wage Jihad for the sake of Allah.Thus, immigration is step four out of a five step plan. Sam Solomon elaborates:
So Hijra or migration is binding on all Muslims for numerous reasons; the most important being that migration is preparatory to jihad with an aim and objective of securing victory for Islam and Muslims either in another country or generally as a community.
