While I may not agree with you 100%, I do share some of your sentiments and particularly they manner in which you seem to be wrestling with yourself
over the issue.
As I watch a huge Muslim influx in the town where I have lived for years, it seem that there is VERY little integration. None of the children are on
the local sports teams. None attend the public schools (and it seem most are home schooled, for whatever that means). They seem to shop only in
their own stores. While in and of itself, non-integration isn't necessarily bad or evil, it does cause me to wonder occasionally.
Since they clearly want nothing to do with ANYONE else in the community, is it that far-fetched to think that they would prefer the rest of us would
leave? If so, what will they do about it? (Yes, I do remind myself to not get too carried away and paranoid about these kinds of things).
Every once in a while you hear about what I would consider passive-aggressive moves my Muslim people/groups to try and force their ways on everyone
else. I apologize for not remembering all the specifics but I recall a few years back a Muslim group purchased land adjacent to a property that for
years had held "pig races" as part of a fair (or something like that). I believe they lost but the Muslim group tried to shut down the races via the
legal system. Recently there was the flight attendant who had converted to Islam and no longer wanted to serve alcohol (which was part of her job).
I recall a Muslim supermarket cashier who decided that she shouldn't have to ring up customers who were purchasing pork products.
I'm one of those people who, on a somewhat regular basis, does a "Google News" search of my town to see whats been happening. I have NEVER come
across a story about a Muslim person being assaulted via a "bias" attack. I've never seen a story about any of their mosques being vandalized.
Nothing. So I was very surprised (until I really thought about it) to find out that the largest mosque in the town was calling for a summit
(paraphrase) to discuss the harassment that the local Muslim population suffers from. I thought to myself, "Are you kidding me?" From what I've
seen, these are the tactics of SOME of the Muslim groups.
Regarding Sharia here in the United States, I believe about three or four months ago a few politicians in California were urging financial
institutions to create Sharia-Compliant loan structures to encourage Muslim people to purchase homes in his area. Nothing necessarily illegal or even
immoral about that, but this is one of those things I wrestle with. As you said, where does the line get drawn?
