World Net Daily, among others, notes that
Ibrahim Hooper, the future CAIR spokesman, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune on April 4, 1993: "I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future."Under Moslem law, non-Muslims pay a tax called jizya. According to Wikipedia:
In states ruled by Islamic law, jizya or jizyah is a per capita tax imposed on non-Muslim adult males, known as dhimmis.
...In practice the word is applied to a special type of tax, levied on those who did not accept Islam, and applied for the benefit of the Muslim community.And Hooper is not alone. According to Daniel Pipes:
...The imposition of jizya upon non-Muslims is mandated by the Qur'an 9:29:Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold forbidden that which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
as reported by the San Ramon Valley Herald, CAIR Chairman Omar M. Ahmad told a crowd of California Muslims in July 1998, "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran . . . should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth."And CAIR is not the only one that wants to put in practice the Moslem law that would impose the jizya. Imam Zaid Shakir, an American Muslim leader, is quoted by the New York Times as saying:
"Every Muslim who is honest would say, I would like to see America become a Muslim country," he said.What are the chances of that happening?
In the US, we may forget Islam's past history of global conquest.
We may even ignore the Islamists' goal of world domination.
But higher taxes?
No red-blooded American will allow that!
