Islamic Borg

Muslims are the equivalent of the Borg in Star Trek: The Next Generation. For those of you who aren't SiFi fans, the Borg traveled the Galaxy demanding that everyone assimilate into a Borg and therefore the Borg "Collective".

During a visit to Cologne, France, in 2008, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke to a group of 20,000 Turks living in Europe. He told them, “I understand very well that you are against assimilation. One cannot expect you to assimilate. Assimilation is a crime against humanity.”

Why does Erdogan call assimilation “a crime against humanity?” It is because the “humanity” he embraces includes only Islam’s believers—i.e., non-believers are unworthy of inclusion. Thus, believers in foreign lands are instructed to isolate themselves—for the sake of purity—from non-believers.

What many people fail to understand about Islam and Muslims’ failure to assimilate “to become part of something greater” is that Muslims are embracing “reverse assimilation.” This is the process by which the influence of the host population is eventually marginalized due to the disproportionately high growth of an immigrant population which then seeks to impose its beliefs on the host. Simply put, it is the guest who comes to a host’s home, grows his family until it outnumbers the host’s family and then takes over that home.

What we fail to understand is that, to Muslims, becoming “part of something greater” means the natives surrender their individual identity and way of life to Muslims.

In 1948, the world community unanimously agreed to a UN declaration that human rights are universal. In 1981, Muslim countries distanced themselves from this, claiming Sharia law was controlling, thus limiting such rights primarily to Muslim men. That same Sharia law is now being applied in host countries—including the U.S.—under pressure from growing unassimilated Muslim populations.

Denmark dropped its very liberal immigration policy once the government recognized the dangers of failed Muslim assimilation within its borders. Comprising 5% of the population, Danish Muslims settled in no-go zones, while consuming 40% of welfare benefits.
