Islamic Scholar: It’s Impossible To Integrate Muslims Into The West

Published

on

Dutch sociologist Ruud Koopmans proclaims that Muslims are more difficult to integrate than other migrant groups.

The author of several books such as Contested Citizenship: Immigration and Cultural Diversity in Europe told the Danish newspaper Berlingske that migration groups coming from predominately Islamic cultures have a hard time assimilating into Western cultures when stacked against other immigrants.

According to Koopmans assimilation among Muslims is possible, “the change is much slower.” He attributes a literal interpretation of the Quran, the holy book of Islam, as the main factor preventing Muslims from integrating into Western society.

Koopmans compared Muslim radicalism with Christian radicalism in a study titled “Fundamentalism and out-group hostility”.

The sociologist wrote “Almost 60 percent agree that Muslims should return to the roots of Islam”. Koopmans added that “75 percent think there is only one interpretation of the Qur’an possible to which every Muslim should stick.”

Koopman’s multiple decades of research on Islam has yielded some shocking trends on the nature of Islamic fundamentalism.  “65 percent say that religious rules are more important to them than the laws of the country in which they live.”

On the other hand, Koopmans’s research uncovered that fewer than 4 percent of Christians “can be characterized as consistent fundamentalists.”

Koopmans concluded that the “Islamic world is lagging behind rest of the world when it comes to democracy, human rights, and political and economic development.”

In his view, the literal interpretation of the Quran and Sunna lies at fault:

“The main problem is how many Muslims and, globally, how many Muslim countries interpret Islam. Namely, in a way that basically claims that the Qur’an and the Sunna must be taken literally, and that the way the Prophet lived in the 7th century must be the yardstick for how Muslims should live in the 21st century.”

These uncomfortable truths are important to understand in immigration debates.

Open borders has become a dogma among the political class, believing that every immigrant is created equal and must be embraced with open arms.

With presence of a welfare state magnet, mass migration from Islamic countries has created veritable religious ghettoes in European countries, where even the natives dare not walk into.

It would behoove the political class in the West to recognize that not all cultures are the same and that immigration must be fine tuned in a way that promotes economic growth while maintaining social cohesion.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
