Selwyn Duke writes in the New American:
He’s a Muslim refugee living in Europe. And he has a warning:
Keep the Muslim “refugees” out of Europe.
He’s Dr. Mudar Zahran, a Jordanian Palestinian academic and a leader of the Jordanian Opposition Coalition who is currently living in the United Kingdom, where he sought political asylum. Describing himself as an “orthodox Muslim,” he nonetheless says there’s a “genuine problem with Muslims in Europe” and calls the current wave of migrants entering the continent “the soft Islamic conquest of the West.”
Dr. Zahran issued these and more dire warnings on a Thursday segment of The Glazov Gang (video below). Zahran’s basic message is that the West is being manipulated, fooled, and played for suckers by migrants who by and large are not what they appear.
Many of us have heard the stories. German schoolgirls being told to wear “modest Sharia-compliant clothing … to avoid offending the Muslims”; migrants turning their free housing into a garbage dump, attacking medical staff, becoming enraged at having to pay for prescriptions, suing the German government for not paying benefits fast enough; and German schoolchildren asked to make beds and cook for able-bodied migrants. Then there were the Muslims in Budapest and France chanting the jihadist cry Allahu Akbar, and migrants on the Greece/Macedonia border refusing food and water parcels because they had the Red Cross on them.
But Dr. Zahran has a bit more of the inside story. He told show host Jamie Glazov that while most Muslim migrants claim to be Syrian so they can get refugee status, what we’re witnessing is an “influx of all kinds of refugees from the Middle East.” He continued:
Seventy-five percent of those arriving from Syria come from safe area[s]; actually, the ones in disaster areas cannot … leave. So, actually, as much as there’s a disaster in Syria, most of those people arriving do in fact do not need the protection; they arrive from Turkey, they arrive from Jordan, they arrive from other places which are safe. In addition, those people are … bypassing poor European countries, they’re going to Turkey, Hungary, and other places like Bulgaria and settling in Germany, where there is a rich nation with a generous welfare system.
And Germany is right now on the front line. The Montana-sized nation expects 1.5 million Muslim migrants this year alone; this is 50 percent more than the total population of Montana. And these migrants will enter a land where churches are already being converted into mosques.
Dr. Zahran also warns that this “is only the beginning. We are looking at at least … another 20 to 30 million Muslim/Arab migrants during the next 3 to 5 years.…This is a big issue; this is going to change Europe’s culture.”
Yet there’s another big issue. If a nation admits one million Muslims and only one-tenth of one percent constitutes terrorists, that’s 1,000 violent jihadists. But Zahran says it isn’t hypothetical because, he states, “I can authoritively [sic] confirm — I have photos, I have images, I have pictures, I have names of terrorists who actually are already in Europe posting their photos in Europe on Facebook.”
And then there’s the face of Europe, which will be “affected deeply,” warns Zahran. He explained:
[W]e do have a genuine problem with Muslims in Europe … in most cases they don’t seem to fully integrate in the country. Not to mention the cases where there are people who want to turn Europe into a Muslim state in 30 or 40 or 50 years through producing children and depending on welfare through the children. In short, I think there is a very major problem to Europe’s identity…. What we see with many Muslims in Europe are people marching in London, Berlin, and elsewhere demanding Sharia law.
Note, recent polls show that even in the United States a majority of Muslims prefer Sharia law to American law, and 60 percent of Muslim Americans under age 30 say they’re more loyal to Islam than to our nation.
So Dr. Zahran seems to believe that the migrants represent a vanguard in what he calls “the soft Islamic conquest of the West.” He also says that in his opinion, half the Syrian male migrants “have actually held weapons and fought in the Syrian war.” And while they’re rough and ready to fulfill what he terms “the Islamic … dreams of fascism of some,” Europe is playing the doormat. What Muslims “couldn’t do in the last 20 years,” says Zahran, “now the West is doing for us for free — and even paying for it.” Moreover, Zahran had this shocking news about the “invasion”: “I have to be honest,” he said, “you read Arab magazines and Arab newspapers; they are talking about, ‘Good job! Now we’re going to conquest [sic] Europe.’ So it’s not even a secret.”
Of course, many Westerners welcome the Muslims in the name of “diversity,” but, interestingly, rich Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Dubai don’t welcome the “diversity” of their co-religionists. Why not? Because, according to Zahran, most “Muslim states … have zero history of human respect and human rights.”
The irony of the diversity argument, however, is that diversity doesn’t long exist where Islam takes hold, and much of Europe’s history involved defensive warfare to keep Muslims out. Note that Christianity was the dominant religion in the Mideast and North Africa until Muslim armies seized the territory after Islam’s birth in 622 A.D.; Muslims also occupied Spain for 650 years, once came within 125 miles of Paris, and twice reached the gates of Vienna.
Dr. Zahran blames this conversion-by-the-sword mentality on the influence of the Hadith, an Islamic canonical book written hundreds of years after Mohammed’s death; in fact, he frankly said that the Hadith is “basically ISIS.” Yet while 21 percent of the book is devoted to jihad, when Islam’s other two canonical volumes — the Koran and the Sira — are factored in, that figure rises to 31 percent. In contrast, as I wrote in February, “5.6 percent of the Old Testament and 0 percent of the New Testament are devoted to political violence. In terms of word count, this works out to 0 in the latter and 34,039 in the Hebrew Bible.” And the Islamic canon? It comes in at 327,547 — 9.6 times greater than the Old Testament. Moreover, as one expert put it, “The political violence of the Bible was for that particular historical time and place.… The political violence of the Koran is eternal and universal.”
In the face of this, Dr. Zahran has a politically incorrect prescription. He said to Glazov, “We need to send those people [the Muslim migrants] home. I’m not talking only about those yet to come; I’m talking about those who are already there [in Europe] — they can always be sent home.… I am completely against making this situation permanent.”
And that is the point. As I wrote in “The Refugee Scam,” “If a stranger in need happens by your area and you’re a charitable sort, you may take him in for a time, feed him and provide other basic necessities. You don’t generally make him an official part of your family and empower him to help decide on finances, what products to buy, how your kids will be educated and what values will prevail within your home.” The modern West operates on an unquestioned ahistorical supposition that refugee status must be conflated with citizenship. And with this standard, refugees can eventually turn the West into a place of no refuge at all.
