Islam is sold to the American people as the religion of peace, at least that’s what the Democrats and media continue to tell us time and again. We’ve all seen or heard reports from Muslims in America trying to convince us that they only want to take advantage of what America has to offer and nothing more. They don’t want to change America.

Some years ago, I worked as a remodeling supervisor for a chain of hardware-lumber stores in the greater Phoenix area. While remodeling each store, I would hire a crew of about 20 temporary workers. At two different stores, two of my temp employees were immigrants from the Middle East.

One was a doctor from Tehran, Iran and former Muslim. He was raised and educated in a typical Muslim school (boys only). He told me that all of boys were taught the Quran above all else and that the Quran commanded them to either convert or kill all non-Muslims. He realized that Islam was nothing but violence and he didn’t want that for his family. He ended up converting to Christianity, which he said was the true religion of peace. His conversion caused his family and friends to issue a death warrant for him and his family. It cost him the equivalent of about $90,000US at the time, to smuggle his family out of Iran and eventually was allowed in the US under asylum status.

The other Middle Eastern employee was born and raised in Pakistan. He was also a Muslim and told me pretty much the same story as the former doctor. He too saw Islam as violence and death. He referred to it as the religion of blood. He was single and when he also converted to Christianity, he had to flee for his life. He eventually made his way across Europe and was allowed into the US after applying for asylum.

I’ve heard many similar instances from former Muslims who were born and raised in the Middle East.

When I questioned one Muslim, he was told that here in the United States, it’s different and that they only want to take advantage of the American dream and nothing more.

After hearing that, I heard from a man who lived in the Dearborn, Michigan area who told me an entirely different story. He said that over the years, Dearborn has become heavily Islamic and that the Muslims had been steadily taking over the city and schools. Islamic (sharia) law became unofficially the rule in that part of America.

In the public schools, they would stop for prayer time and kneel on their prayer rugs and pray facing towards Mecca. The high school even held a girls’ only prom because Muslim girls are not allowed to socialize and dance with boys. A Christian evangelist who was witnessing OUTIDE a Muslim festival was arrested because what he was preaching was offensive to Muslims.

In another instance in Philadelphia, a Muslim had been arrested for assaulting a man who was wearing a zombie Muhammad costume on Halloween. The assault was witnessed by the police officer who arrested the Muslim. When the case went before a judge, who had converted to Islam, the judge let the assaulter go free and verbally chastised the victim for being so offensive to Islam.

More recently, Muslim kids at the Muslim American Society (MAS) Islamic Center in Philadelphia were videoed during a celebration of Ummah Day. In the video, the kids were wearing Palestinian scarves as they sang and read poetry, most of which was about killing for Allah.

As reported by Fox News:

“In the video, translated by MEMRI, kids can be heard singing: ‘The land of the Prophet Muhammad’s Night Journey is calling us. Our Palestine must return to us’.”

“One girl talks about martyrs sacrificing their lives without hesitation to conquer Jerusalem.”

“‘We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation,’ a second girl says. ‘We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture’.”

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) was the one who made Fox News aware of the video of the kids, which was posted to Facebook page of the MAS Center in Philadelphia. MEMRI stated:

“These are not isolated incidents; they are happening in major centers of the country – including in Pennsylvania.”

Fox News went on to report:

“In the video, translated by MEMRI, kids can be heard singing: ‘The land of the Prophet Muhammad’s Night Journey is calling us. Our Palestine must return to us’.”

“MAS Philly belongs to the Muslim American Society (MAS), which has 42 chapters in the United States and one in the United Kingdom.”

Over the past few years, I’ve read numerous accounts of Muslims living here in the US that still live by sharia law, justifying what they call honor beatings and honor killings.

This is why I get alarmed when I see radical Muslims like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib become members of Congress. You cannot convince me that they will not try to influence laws and policies to match their Islamic beliefs and not match American law, tradition or culture.

Sorry folks, but there is no way you can convince me that Islam is a religion of peace. In fact, it is the exact opposite.
