Immigration and its consequences

There are three major stories playing out in the new media today that the MSM/DNC will not discuss. All three are related, and it is up to the new media to connect the dots.

1. Rush Limbaugh has taken a stand against the Bush administration's open borders immigration policies. Hat tip to Michelle Malkin. John Fund believes that Rush has the clout to make a difference. By repeating the story here, I hope I am doing my part to spread the word.

2. Michelle Malkin also has posted more shocking details from the growing story of the murder of the Egyptian Christian family in New Jersey. The gruesome details are eerily similar to the murders so often shown on Al Jazeera.

3. These murders have led to the discovery of an Islamic website that tracks down and harrasses American Christians who are vocal about their beliefs or who argue with Muslims. This type of domestic terror can be successful only if immigration continues unchecked. We may succeed in liberating Iraq only to bring the same kind of terror to our own shores.

Our very survival as a civilization may depend on stopping the flow of immigration. The real danger comes not from hijackers with boxcutters, but from those who come here seemingly in peace, only to propagate and then eat away at the foundations of our culture. With time, the New Jersey murders may become as commonplace as roadside bombs in Tikrit.

When even Hillary realizes that this issue is a winner politically, why can't the rest of us realize that this issue means the difference between our survival as a people and the balkanization of our civilization?

With each new wave of immigration, our society changes. We may not like what we change into. By then it will be too late.
Tuesday update

The New York Sun contains a story today about a Brooklyn mosque linked to terrorist fundraising and Wahhabist literature:
"In a book published by the Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs, and collected from the Al-Farouq Mosque in Brooklyn, New York, Saudi Arabia's official religious leader, the late Bin Baz, authorizes Muslims to kill converts to Islam who violate sexual mores on adultery and homosexuality," the report said.

According to the report's translation, Al-Farooq worshipers are told: "If a person said: I believe in Allah alone and confirm the truth of everything from Muhammed, except in his forbidding fornication, he becomes a disbeliever. For that, it would be lawful for Muslims to spill his blood and to take his money."

This is not the first time Al-Farooq has been cited in conjunction with terrorism and terrorist ideology. Friday marked the beginning of the trial in Brooklyn federal court of a Yemeni sheik, Mohammed Ali Hasan al-Moayad, who stands accused of conspiring to raise millions of dollars for Hamas and Al Qaeda. Some of the fund-raising activity was allegedly undertaken at the Al-Farooq Mosque.

A senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, Andrew McCarthy, who led the prosecution of the ringleader of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, Omar Abdel Rahman, spoke yesterday of Al-Farooq's other alleged connections to terrorism.

The mosque, Mr. McCarthy said, was a regular stop for the blind sheik on his fund-raising tours in the late 1980s, and in 1989, the former prosecutor said, several conspirators in the Landmark Bomb Plot - which aimed to blow up the United Nations and New York City's tunnels - met at Al-Farooq before heading out to Long Island to conduct jihadist training activities.

This latest revelation about Al-Farooq, Mr. McCarthy said, was "just another drop in the barrel."

The mosque "worshippers" might not hijack an airplane, but they provide support, money and cover for those who do.

Jihad Watch appears to be an excellent website that is tracking the New Jersey murder story. With attention from blogs like Powerline, Jihad Watch can help force stories like this into the spotlight.
