There is no threat of Islam…..there is no threat of Islam. That is what non-Muslim Westerners continually tell themselves. How much more evidence is needed until they step out of their false comfort zone, and face the harsh reality of this issue? A new poll by the Pew Research Center only confirms what most of my teammates already knew. The Sharia push is alive and well. The only question is what are non-Muslims going to do about it?
Majority of Muslims want Islam in politics, poll

According to the survey, majorities in Pakistan, Egypt, Jordan and Nigeria would favor changing current laws to allow stoning as a punishment for adultery, hand amputation for theft and death for those who convert from Islam to another religion. About 85% of Pakistani Muslims said they would support a law segregating men and women in the workplace.
Egypt, Jordan, and Pakistan. Aren’t those countries supposed to be our “moderate” allies? To just how just how incompentant our government is, we are funding these countries to the tune of tens of billions of dollars.
Over the past three decades the US has given Egypt almost $30 billion dollars in aid.
At the 30th anniversary celebration of the U.S. aid program last year, the aid given totaled $28 billion, by far the largest amount of development aid given to any country in the world by the United States.

US aid to Jordan:
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the principal U.S. government agency providing economic and development assistance to partner countries in support of the foreign policy goals of the United States.
Since 1952, the U.S.-Jordanian development partnership has been an important component of the relationship between the two countries. Committed to together developing Jordan into an oasis of stability and economic prosperity, USAID and the Government of Jordan have been cooperating together for the past five decades in a wide range of sectors – including water, agriculture, economic development, education, health, tourism, environment, and infrastructure. Total economic assistance devoted to these efforts since 1952 now exceeds $4.4 billion
Things are obviously getting worse across the world in regards to Islam, so why do we continue following failed policies? Why do we continue to aid our own destruction? Given aid to Islamic countries, would have been the equivalent of Jews giving aid to the Nazis. Let them fend for themselves.
Muslims in Indonesia, Egypt, Nigeria and Jordan were among the most enthusiastic, with more than three-quarters of poll respondents in those countries reporting positive views of Islam’s influence in politics: either that Islam had a large role in politics, and that was a good thing, or that it played a small role, and that was bad.
Turkish Muslims were the most conflicted, with just more than half reporting positive views of Islam’s influence in politics. Turkey has struggled in recent years to balance a secular political system with an increasingly fervent Muslim population.
Muslims have no problem taking our money, but at the same time their goal of an Islamic world continues to move forward. It is time to realize that our country is dealing from a position of weakness, and Muslims will continue to walk all over us until we get the right leaders in place.
