(CNN)President Barack Obama, in his first visit to a mosque in the United States, said Wednesday he was seeking to rebut “inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslim-Americans” from Republican presidential candidates. Attempting to recast what he said was a warped image of Islam while encouraging members of the faith to speak out against terror, Obama described Muslims as essential to the fabric of America.

The President’s message rings so true to what we want to believe about ourselves, about this great country that we live in, a country that has always opened its doors to “your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”1 But what if an always open door to the masses leads to the trampling of the liberty for which we stand? How long before we consider that our strength can soon become our weakness?
What if you lived in Great Britain instead of America? Do you think the door would be open as wide?
Muslims in UK top 3 million for first time… with over 50% born outside Britain: Number in country doubles in a decade as immigration and birth rates soar
England is home to more than three million Muslims for the first time ever, new figures show. The number in the country has doubled in just over a decade as a result of soaring immigration and high birth rates. In some parts of London, close to half the population are now Muslims, according to detailed analysis by the Office for National Statistics obtained by The Mail on Sunday. On current trends they will be the majority in those areas within a decade.
Half of those following Islam in England and Wales were born abroad while more are under ten years old than in any other age group, indicating their numbers will grow still further in generations to come.
The three million milestone – representing one in 20 people across the country – will reignite debate about the changing face of Britain amid growing calls for all Muslims to integrate into society. … Last night, Lord Green of Deddington, the former diplomat who chairs Migration Watch UK, told The Mail on Sunday: ‘This is clear evidence of the way in which mass immigration is rapidly changing the nature of our society. The Home Secretary was right in her conference speech to point to the potential pressures on social cohesion. Read more.
In Great Britain, the push is on for Muslims to integrate into the British democratic society. In fact, Muslim women are being told to ether learn English or face deportation. PM Cameron announced a £20 million fund to help Muslim women learn English. Cameron is reported to have stated:
The prime minister signalled that he sees a link between isolation of mothers and Islamist extremism, and suggested Muslim women who fail to improve their English language skills could be deported as not speaking the language adequately could make people “more susceptible.” Read more.
What do you think is going to happen in Great Britain when Muslims become the majority? Will it be too late for english-tutored Muslim women to stop the Qur’an from replacing the Brit’s Constitution? If current trends continue, do you think Muslims will become British or Britain will become Muslim? When over half of the 20 million Muslims are under the age of 10, some say it will only take 10 years for this to occur.
It is very easy to open the doors to Muslims when Americans are in the majority. But how long will it be before all that changes and America finds itself in the same predicament as that of Great Britain? Quoting from the Pew Research Center, we have about 35 years before that takes place:
April 23, 2015. The expected growth of Islam around the world is perhaps the most striking finding in the recent Pew Research Center report projecting the future of religious groups. Indeed, Muslims will grow more than twice as fast as the overall world population between 2010 and 2050 and, in the second half of this century, will likely surpass Christians as the world’s largest religious group.

Can you imagine the political backlash if on Tuesday when Obama arrived at the mosque in Catonsville, MD, he had stated what Britain’s Cameron stated recently in Great Britain, i.e., that Muslims need to learn English or risk being deported? I wonder if Cameron wonders if he should have visited more mosques in Great Britain?
Don’t misunderstand my cynicism. It is not Muslims that I warn against. Rather, it is the Qur’an that instructs them, and the god that spoke it to Muhammad in 610 a.d., Allah. A couple passages to close with:
From the Qur’an:
Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah . But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors. Qur’an 2:193
From the Hadith:
“Verily Allah has shown me the eastern and western part of the earth, and I saw the authority of my Ummah (nation) dominate all that I saw.” (Saheeh Muslim, hadith #2889)
[I]t is a severe warning to the Christians who claim to be the followers of Isa (Jesus) and he will break the Cross and kill the pigs, and he will abolish the Jizya (tax); and all mankind will be required to embrace Islam with no alternative. Bukhari as quoted by Answering Islam.org.
Jesus come quickly.
