Michigan’s Muslim Problem

Michigan is home to the largest U.S. population of foreign-born Muslims with more than 30,000 Muslims residing in Grand Rapids alone. And it’s worse in Dearborn, where Muslims make up nearly half the population, earning it the nickname of “Little Baghdad” and “Dearbornistan.” Despite the media telling Americans that diversity is our strength, Muslims have no desire to assimilate into American culture and are, in fact, encouraged by their local imams not to assimilate. Rather, they want Americans to conform to Islam and afford them special exceptions because of their religious beliefs. And these unvetted foreigners have been busy forming their own schools, lawyers, mosques, halal stores and communities, often with foreign money.

And while they have no desire to integrate into our American system, they have no compunction about sucking dry the state’s welfare program. Statistically, almost all Muslims in the state are foreign born and are on welfare. A Muslim food stamp crime ring in Grand Rapids was recently broken up that was estimated to have cost taxpayers $736,000 in EBT handouts and $544,000 in WIC entitlements over the course of nine years. It is absolutely shameful that these same Muslims collecting American taxpayer handouts are driving Range Rovers, building million dollar mosques, and wearing designer clothes (see the video below).

Detroit, once the beacon of American ingenuity and a pillar of manufacturing, is overrun by foreign Muslims, due in large part to Governor Ricky Snyder’s call in 2014 for the infusion of 50,000 unvetted Syrian “immigrants” to revitalize Detroit. Steve Tarani, author and speaker recounts what he saw when he rode with a member of the Detroit Metro SWAT Police as they drove around Detroit and into Dearborn:

“The street signs suddenly went from English to Arabic. There wasn’t a single English word on any shop or any street sign. And in fact, these little yellow signs were posted all along the edges. Jeremy said to me, ‘this is it. We don’t go past this line.’ And I said to Jeremy, ‘what do you mean? You guys are Detroit Metro. You’re the SWAT team. You can go anywhere you want. What if you get a call over there?’ He said ‘this is it, it’s hazardous for our team if we go past this line.’”

In Hamtramck, once the home of Polish Catholic immigrants and an auto manufacturing plant that employed 45,000 workers, more than half the population is now Muslim and is the only American town with a Muslim-majority city council.


Clearly, there is reason for concern other than the very real threat of home grown terrorists in our midst. This influx of foreign-born Muslims who have no desire to become American are far different than the Irish, English, Norwegians, Italians, Slavs, and other European immigrants to the United States at the turn of the century, who all had one thing in common. They were not adherents to Islam. Though they, too, congregated in their own communities, they shared our same American Western values of independence, hard work, Christian belief, and a desire to become productive members of our society.

The nonprofit group Stop Antisemitism is calling for the investigation into Congresswomen Ilham Omar and Rashida Tlaib possible ties to Hamas terrorists groups. The group says that the Council on America-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has provided thousands of dollars directly and indirectly to support the campaigns of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, both of whom have received awards and recognition by the organization. Zahra Billoo, director of CAIR’s San Francisco chapter, is already crowd-funding for Omar’s re-election. According to FBI statistics, Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, Ilhan Omar’s District, is the terrorist recruitment capitol of the United States. As Fox News noted, “the insular ethnic community in Minnesota offers a rich recruiting ground” for Islamic terrorism as the Somali population in the Minneapolis community — which is located in Omar’s district — is nearly 100,000.”

Video taken of Tlaib’s victory speech for the August 7th primary in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District showed an emotional Tlaib being embraced by her Palestinian mother, Fatima Elabed, who took the flag off her daughter and draped it on her own shoulders. No American flag was seen in video taken of Tlaib’s speech. Tlaib doesn’t seemed concerned that there is no such thing as a Palestine State. Tlaib, who is a member of Democrat Socialists of America, vowed after her win to “fight back against every racist and oppressive structure that needs to be dismantled,” and criticized the President for his harsh treatment of immigrants.

As the progressive fascist on the left preach inclusion, they have afforded a people group to completely escape what any country would expect of its immigrants, which is learning the language and adopting the beliefs and norms of the culture and behaving accordingly. You can read more on this in another article, Diversity is Not Our Strength. By affording Muslims some special type of victim status that forbids any criticism of their behavior and making special concessions for their religion immunizes them from their responsibility to adopt to the values that make us uniquely American, the left is doing CAIR’s dirty work for them.
