WASHINGTON, D.C. — Within 20 years, more children will be born to Muslim women than to Christian women world-wide, says a new report released by the Pew Research Center (http://www.pewforum.org/2017/04/05/the-changing-global-religious-landscape/).
Although Christianity is the largest global religion, Islam is quickly gaining ground with the Muslim population increasing by more than 150 million people between the years 2010 and 2015. Currently the number of Muslims world wide total approximately 1.8 billion.
“Christianity is literally dying in Europe,” Conrad Hackett, the study’s lead researcher, said of the findings. And the United States is not far behind.
Almost half of Muslims living in America, 48%, say that all or almost all of their close friends are also Muslims, and 69% say religion is the primary issue in their lives.
According to a previous report by Pew, American Muslims also identify overwhelmingly with the Democratic Party. When polled, 70 percent of Muslims said that they align themselves with Democrats versus just 11% who say they associate their political beliefs with that of the Republican Party. U.S. Muslims are also favorable to big government, with 68 percent saying they expect that the government provide “more services.”
Since the attack upon America on September 11,2001, there has been a dramatic increase in immigration from Islamic countries, including a 66 percent increase in the past decade alone (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/number-muslims-u-s-doubles-9-11-article-1.1071895).
In his book “Slavery, Terrorism, and Islam”, Peter Hammond detailed the correlation between the proportion of Muslims to the overall population and increased violence and adherence to Sharia law. In one segment, he wrote:
“When the Muslim population remains at or under 2%, their presence tends to fly low under the radar. In the 2% – 5% range, Muslims begin to seek converts, targeting those they see as disaffected, such as criminals. When the population reaches 5% they exert influence disproportionate to their numbers, becoming more aggressive and pushing for Sharia law. When the population hits the 10% mark Muslims become increasingly lawless and violent. Once the population reaches 20%, there is an increase in rioting, murder, jihad militias, and destruction of non-Muslim places of worship. At 40%, there are “widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare.” Once beyond 50%, infidels and apostates are persecuted, genocide occurs, and Sharia law is implemented. After 80%, intimidation is a daily part of life along with violent jihad and some state-run genocide as the nation purges all infidels. Once the nation has rid itself of all non-Muslims, the presumption is that ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ has been attained – the Islamic House of Peace.”
According to the most recent statistics, the five U.S. states with the largest number of Muslim residents are Texas, California, New York, Michigan, and Florida (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/01/06/a-new-estimate-of-the-u-s-muslim-population/). With the constantly expanding influx of immigrants from Muslim countries, however, those numbers will continue to change.
