Do followers of Islam who come to America wish to become Americans? To assimilate is to “become” American. One can immigrate, not assimilate, and therefore remain “alien.” Americans are individuals who agree with, believe in, support, and wish to further the foundational principles of our nation. The Principles of liberty and self determination described and enumerated in our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. Immigration does not ensure assimilation nor prevent conquest.
Supporters of “open borders” state: “America is a nation of immigrants and therefore we should allow all who wish to come.” The motive of one who comes to America is purposely ignored. Supporters refuse to address the consequences of open borders in a democratic welfare state with regard to:
- Welfare, and
America’s success is the result of liberty and justice flowing from her foundational principles: “a Creator”, equality, principles of justice and liberty, and truths described in “the Social Compact”; all enshrined in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
Until recently, America required immigrants to renounce their previous citizenship and allegiances to their former countries and nations, and swear singular allegiance to the United States and her Constitution. Immigration also required proof of sponsorship and employment.
This ensured assimilation and prevented conquest (Definitions from Noah Webster’s 1828 dictionary).
: to learn (something) so that it is fully understood and can be used
: to cause (a person or group) to become part of a different society, country, etc.
: to adopt the ways of another culture : to fully become part of a different society, country, etc.
: The act of conquering; the act of overcoming or vanquishing opposition by force, physical or moral. Applied to persons, territory and the like, it usually implies or includes a taking possession of; as the conquest of Canada by the British troops. So we speak of the heart, the passions, or the will.
:The act of gaining or regaining by effort; as the conquest of liberty or peace; a French phrase.
:Foreign; not belonging to the same country, land or government.
:Estranged; foreign; not allied; adverse to; as, principles alien from our religion.
Are Muslims who immigrated to England assimilating and becoming English? Or are migrant muslims aliens within England? Are Islamic “migrants” adopting, internalizing, and furthering the principles, cultural beliefs, and foundational underpinnings of Great Britain? A country that has allowed them to come share in Britain’s wealth? Or, are Britain’s muslims today’s Conquistadors? This recent essay describes:
Will immigration demolish in decades a nation built over centuries?
By BENJAMIN SCHWARZ • January 11, 2016
In significant respects, the Pakistanis and Bangladeshis form a metaphorical foreign encampment, rather than an immigrant neighborhood, within a country in which a significant minority of them feels in fundamental ways incompatible. A Home Office report on the standoffish Pakistani and Bangladeshi districts in the northern mill towns found that “Separate educational arrangements, community and voluntary bodies, employment, places of worship, language, social and cultural networks, means that many communities operate on the basis of a series of parallel lives.” Less abstractly, Andrew Norfolk, the self-described liberal London Times investigative reporter who methodically uncovered the Rotherham sexual grooming scandal, concludes that
“It is possible for a Muslim child to grow up—in the family home, at school and in the mosque and madrassa—without coming into any contact with Western lifestyles, opinions or values.”
. . .
Two-thirds of British Muslims only mix socially with other Muslims;
that portion is undoubtedly higher among Pakistanis and Bangladeshis specifically. Reinforcing this parallel life is the common practice of returning “home” for a few months every two or three years and an immersion in foreign electronic media. Integration into a wider national life is further hindered—and the retention of a deeply foreign culture is further encouraged—by the fact that most Pakistani marriages, even if one spouse is born in Britain, essentially produce first-generation-immigrant children:
the one study that measured this phenomenon, conducted in the north England city of Bradford, found that 85 percent of third- and fourth-generation British Pakistani babies had a parent who was born in Pakistan.
(Incidentally, that study also found that 63 percent of Pakistani mothers in Bradford had married their cousins, and 37 percent had married first cousins.)
. . .
Several largely unassimilated, in fact often rigidly self-segregated, ethnic groups, members of which may be the British-born children or even the grandchildren of immigrants, form geographically distinct enclaves throughout urban England. To cite extreme examples, British-born children of immigrants make up most of the estimated 3,000 British Muslims trained in al-Qaeda camps, most of the estimated 500 British citizens fighting for ISIS, and most of the 300 known or convicted British Islamist terrorists—including three of the four bombers responsible for the 2005 “7/7” attacks, the coordinated series of bombings in London that killed 52 people and injured more than 700. (Those three, by the way, were all of Pakistani descent.) A majority of the rapists and procurers—almost all ethnically Pakistani or Bangladeshi—in the sexual “grooming” crimes that have plagued England’s North and Midlands are also British-born.

Observe the actions and results of Britains’ immigration policies with the definitions of assimilation and conquest in mind: A majority, even a super-majority, of Islamic people who have moved to Great Britain have not:
adopted Britain’s culture to become fully part of Britain
Muslims are living in England in enclaves and are overcoming or vanquishing opposition by force. Applying their beliefs to persons and territory, and destroying liberty and peace.
England’s Muslim immigrants are not assimilating. England’s Muslim immigrants are marrying their cousins, socially staying to themselves. Instilling in their progeny their “Islamic culture” and refusing to adopt England’s laws and cultural mores. Similarly, what do the terrorist attacks and political actions opposing freedom of speech show Muslims in America are doing? Muslim’s own actions show they are “migrants” NOT ASSIMILATING. It appears Islam’s followers are modern “Conquistadors” to the West.
