According to a new book by CIA contractor James Mitchell, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed – the accused al Qaeda mastermind of 9/11 – believes that Islamism will conquer America not through terrorist attacks but rather through long-term immigration. In Enhanced Interrogation, Mitchell recounts his years of interviewing the al Qaeda prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, giving us a look into the dark heart of Islamic terror.
From the Washington Examiner:
Snippets obtained by Secrets from the book set for release next Tuesday from Crown Forum show that Muslim terror groups had a much bigger plan to crush America than just through attacks like 9/11.
Instead, the plan is to fill the country with like-minded Muslims through the country’s easy immigration laws and by having babies, and then using the U.S. legal and welfare system to turn the country into a system like Iran.
According to Mitchell, Mohammad said “it would be nice” if jihadists could destroy the U.S. through 9/11-style attacks, but he acknowledged that such a strategy was “not practical.” Instead, he said, Muslims could slowly change America from the inside out through mass migration and a political effort to implement Sharia law into the U.S. legal system.
We are, of course, already seeing this strategy at play across the European Union. We can debate all day long how many Islamic State operatives are sneaking into the West through the refugee pipeline, but that debate ignores the cultural ramifications of mass Muslim migration itself. We’ve seen what happens to countries that fall under the rule of Islam and it isn’t pretty.
Obviously, we’re not going to see an Islamic theocracy in the United States in our lifetime, but we could certainly see elements of Sharia law take root in our courts.
For the last eight years, Barack Obama has gone out of his way to separate Islamists from the majority of peaceful Muslims. Now, President-elect Trump should separate religious Islam from political Islam, which may be an even more important distinction. Religious Islam, divided from its extremist wing, can be respected and protected in the United States. Political Islam – regardless of its association with terrorism – should be given no quarter.
Put another way: Our Constitution protects Islam, but it should never be influenced by it.
