The Free Market Jihad ~ American Muslim Consumer Conference 2011
Muslims across the West are hellbent on turning Western Civilization into an Islamic civilization, and they have many weapons in their Islamic arsenal. But what a lot of people do not understand is that many of them are non-violent weapons. Weaponry that is slowly destroying the West from the inside. Some examples of this are the following:
1. The IslamoCON in which Muslims lie about their religion being no threat to non-Muslims. The main targets of this con are Christians and Jews at interfaith meetings, government officials, the media and our universities.
2. Muslim immigration in which they congregate into neighborhoods, and slowly change them to suit Islam.
3. Assembling to fight the anti-Sharia legislation that is being introduced across the country.
4. Using the free market against us to change non-Islamic countries to suit Islam.
Today we will take a look at how Muslims are making a huge Sharia push through our free market.
Meeting Date: October 29Th, 2011
Meeting Location: Hyatt Regency New Brunswick NJ (732) 873-1234
A Brief About American Muslim Consumer
The American Muslim Consumer Conference (AMCC) provides the only platform for industry professionals to examine this potent market sector, and explore its rich potential. The objective of AMCC is to “Understand and Address the needs of American Muslim Consumers and promote companies/entrepreneurs who are developing products for this market”.
It is clear that this market is growing and maturing. The consumer preferences of the world’s nearly 1.5 billion Muslims are faith-based and the concept of Shariah-compliance as a marketing strategy has started to take root in the global and national marketplaces.
JWT’s 2007 study of ‘one of America’s biggest hidden niche markets’ revealed that the American Muslim consumers represent “a neglected market with huge potential for brands that are willing to connect with them.”
The report, based on face-to-face and telephone interviews, uncovered various important points about American Muslims attitudes to brands:
70% felt that brands play an important role in their purchasing decisions, compared to 55% for the average American
59% say they make a point of knowing which brands are popular, compared to a 42% average
55% felt that brands make ‘life more interesting’ compared to a 43% average.
71% said they rarely see anyone of their own faith or ethnicity in advertising
73% said they could not think of one mainstream brand that showed a Muslim in its advertising.
77% rated price as important, as against 91% of the general public, making their brand choice less dependent on price/value.
Let’s take a look at some of the traitors to Western Civilization who will be speaking at the conference.
