I have been widely pilloried in the leftwing blogosphere for my advocacy for immediate restrictions on Muslim immigration to the United States. Even Christianity Today has noted my position on several occasions, as recently as last Friday.

So far, I appear to be standing alone.

But I may soon have a comrade in arms, columnist Mark Steyn. He makes two references to Muslim immigration in his National Review Online column of Saturday, May 8, which you can read in full here.

Note, by the way, he says of Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square bomber, that "he's not an exception, he's the rule":

"He’s not an exception, he’s the rule. The Pantybomber is a wealthy Nigerian who lived in a London flat worth £2 million. Kafeel Ahmed, who died driving a flaming SUV into the concourse of Glasgow Airport, was president of the Islamic Society of Queen’s University, Belfast. Omar Sheikh, the man who beheaded Daniel Pearl, was a graduate of the London School of Economics. Mohammed Atta was a Hamburg University engineering student. Osama bin Laden went to summer school at Oxford. Educated men. Westernized men. Men who could be pulling down big six-figure salaries anywhere on the planet — were it not that their Islamic identity trumps everything else: elite education, high-paying job, Western passport."


Then Steyn points out that if we had not bent over backwards out of misguided political correctness, we may would have restricted Islamic immigration immediately in the way of 9/11:

"As for the idea that America has become fanatically “Islamophobic” since 9/11, au contraire: Were America even mildly 'Islamophobic,' it would have curtailed Muslim immigration, or at least subjected immigrants from Pakistan, Yemen, and a handful of other hotbeds to an additional level of screening. Instead, Muslim immigration to the West has accelerated in the last nine years, and, as the case of Faisal Shahzad demonstrates, being investigated by terrorism task forces is no obstacle to breezing through your U.S. citizenship application. An 'Islamophobic' America might have pondered whether the more extreme elements of self-segregation were compatible with participation in a pluralist society: Instead, President Obama makes fawning speeches boasting that he supports the rights of women to be 'covered' — rather than the rights of the ever lengthening numbers of European and North American Muslim women beaten, brutalized, and murdered for not wanting to be covered. America is so un-Islamophobic that at Ground Zero they’re building a 13-story mosque — on the site of an old Burlington Coat Factory damaged by airplane debris that Tuesday morning.

 

 "So, in the ruins of a building reduced to rubble in the name of Islam, a temple to Islam will arise."

 

Then he raises a question about what exactly it will take before we consider slowing the flow of Muslims into the U.S.:

"Because the reactions of Bloomberg & Co. are a useful glimpse into the decayed and corroded heart of a civilization. One day the bomb will explode. Dozens dead? Hundreds? Thousands? Would we then restrict immigration from certain parts of the world? Or at least subject them to extra roadblocks on the fast-track to citizenship?"

Come all the way over, Mark. The water's fine. And together, we might be able to make America safer.

I say ban them from the U.S.  If the US is so terrible then why are they coming here?  (To Take Over.) Wake up Jews, Wake up Americans!
