Islam Critic: Allowing Michiganistan to Develop in America Would Be Unwise

Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been writing opinion pieces as part of the rollout publicity for her new book “Heretic: Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now”. A couple days ago she wrote in the Wall Street Journal about dangerous Islamic prison ministries that convert violent men into Muslims with an excuse to kill.

She is also warning about a potential “Michiganistan” in the United States, just as Britain’s main city is now sometimes called Londonistan to describe the negative effects of Muslim immigration.

It’s true that under Obama, Muslim immigration has been on the uptick, with relaxed standards for Islamics mandated by the White House despite the national security threat. Among refugees these days, Arabic is the top language spoken.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s warning is well taken, but her solution is idiotic. As an immigrant, she has “no objection to other people coming to America to seek a better life” but that naivete won’t work when Muslim newbies come packed with a poisonous ideology of death. Their holy book is a murder manual that includes more than one hundred verses urging believers to slay the infidels. Of course not all Muslims are active headchoppers, but the dormant commandments of violence may surface in persons who appear assimilated but then revert to type. One example was Shirwa Ahmed, an immigrant who graduated from a Minneapolis high school and later returned to Somalia to blow up 30 people and himself in Mogadishu...

    too late Ayaan….it’s already being called Michiganistan…

  • Dana Garcia

    Ayaan is a tremendously admirable and courageous person. However, she has a terrible blind spot, and that is the belief that mass numbers of Muslims can be assimilated to western values, as she was. However, she is an exception among Muslim immigrants in recognizing the superiority of the western culture.
