Muslims Don’t Assimilate, They Infiltrate

Islamophobia ISLAMOPHILIA

Let us first, dispense with the pretense.

Every notion we in the West have adopted in terms of dealing with Muslims, both individually and collectively, is wrong.

It is a policy based more on political correctness than on rational analysis, more on a misunderstanding of culture than religion.

The term “Islamophobia” was invented and promoted in the early 1990s by the International Institute for Islamic Thought, a front group of the Muslim Brotherhood. It was designed as a weapon to advance a totalitarian cause by stigmatizing critics and silencing them, similar to the tactics used by the political left, when they hurl the accusations of “racist,” “sexist,” “homophobe” and “hate-speech.”

It became the role of Islamist lobby organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to depict themselves as civil-rights groups speaking out on behalf of a Muslim American population that was allegedly besieged by outsiders who harbored an illogical, unfounded fear of them and regularly accusing the American people, American institutions, law-enforcement authorities, and the U.S. government of harboring a deep and potentially violent prejudice against Muslims. Of course, FBI data on hate crimes show that such allegations are nonsense.

Contrary to the propaganda, Islamophobia is not what Muslims feel, but what radical Muslims hope to instill politically and culturally in non-Muslims cultures, that is, intimidation and fear. Thereby, they can, not only further their goal of a global Caliphate, but gain a type of “respect” to which they would otherwise not be entitled based on an absence of convincing arguments or constructive contributions to society.

Danish psychologist, Nicolai Sennels, who treated 150 criminal Muslim inmates found fundamental and largely irreconcilable psychological differences between Muslim and Western culture, which makes effective assimilation at best serendipity and at worst urban myth.

For example, Muslim culture has a very different view of anger. In Western culture, expressions of anger and threats are probably the quickest way to lose face leading to a feeling of shame and a loss of social status. In Muslim culture, aggressive behaviors, especially threats, are generally seen to be accepted, and even expected as a way of handling conflicts.

In the context of foreign policy, peaceful approaches such as demonstrations of compassion, compromise and common sense are seen by Muslim leaders as cowardice and a weakness to be exploited. In that respect, anger and violence are not reasons to begin negotiations, but are integral components of the negotiation process itself.

According to Sennels, there is another important psychological difference between Muslim and Western cultures called the “locus of control,” whether people experience life influenced by either internal or external factors.

Westerners feel that their lives are mainly influenced by inner forces, our ways of handling our emotions, our ways of thinking, our ways of relating to people around us, our motivations, and our way of communicating; factors that determine if we feel good and self-confident or not.

In Muslim culture, however, inner factors are replaced by external rules, traditions and laws for human behavior. They have powerful Muslim clerics who set the directions for their community, dictate political views, and provide rules for virtually all aspects of life.

The locus of control is central to the individual’s understanding of freedom and responsibility. When Westerners have problems, we most often look inward and ask “What did I do wrong?” and “What can I do to change the situation?” Muslims look outward for sources to blame asking: “Who did this to me?” Sennels noted that a standard answer from violent Muslims is often: “It is his own fault that I beat him up (or raped her). He (or she) provoked me.”

As a result, Muslim culture offers a formula for perpetual victimhood.

With a decrease in feelings of personal responsibility, there is a greater tendency to demand that the surroundings adapt to Muslim wishes and desires, infiltrating rather than to assimilating into a Western culture.

All of this does not bode well for the logic of any proposal to increase Muslim immigration into non-Muslim cultures or the success of any foreign policy involving Muslim nations by applying current Islamophobia-based misconceptions.

Sennels offers a harsh, but realistic prescription:

“We should not permit the destruction of our cities by lawless parallel societies, with groups of roaming criminal Muslims overloading of our welfare system and the growing justified fear that non-Muslims have of violence. The consequences should be so strict that it would be preferable for any anti-social Muslim to go back to a Muslim country, where they can understand, and can be understood by their own culture.

Get ready though, Obama’s Muslim surge is coming.

  1. That was a well-written and thought-out piece. I am an islamophobe, whether it’s rational or not. I’m afraid of people who kill unarmed innocent people for their God. I’m afraid of a God that takes pleasure in it. I’m afraid of people that think homosexuals should be killed. I’m afraid of people that think adulterers should be killed. I’m afraid of people that think that anyone that leaves their religion should be killed. I’m afraid of people that think it’s an honor to kill a family member for dishonouring the family. (Honor killings Brilliant! !!) I’m afraid of men that think it’s okay to beat their wives or rape women that aren’t dressed properly or are not accompanied by a man. I’m afraid of people that hate Jews, Christians and infidels. ( which by the way is everybody ) mostly I’m afraid of a religion and a culture that believes that the most excellent example of a human being was a murderous, lying, thief and child molester. Sharia will continue to chip away at the First Amendment while the left continues to chip away at the Second Amendment. We need to be diligent, aware and educated. Thanks for the article Lawrence Sellin

    • islamaphobe1, thank you for a well written statement. So honest and truthful. So factual. I feel as you do. America is in trouble. Hopefully God will show us a way to get rid of this fear. Obama, the CAIR Brotherhood and the Muslim population has insulted the US Constitution, Congress and the American people. Congress has done very little to protect the American people from the Muslim threat. Perhaps the American people can elect someone that actually loves America.

  2. No doubt about it but they have a slick media campaign trying to convince us it is nothing more than family law.

  3. This is an outstanding post. Its what I’ve believed since I read Clash of Civilizations.

  4. Islam does not come to integrate or assimilate.
    Islam comes ONLY to: Conquer, Submit, Convert, or Kill.

  5. It’s curious how muslims and my chilean thugs share the same mind set.

    • Maybe because they see how successful Muslims have been playing the victim while simultaneously waging jihad.

      Or maybe the Palestinian Muslim incursion taking place in Chile is having an affect. Search up “Chile” in our archives.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
