The preservation of our existing order can no longer be taken for granted; it needs to be fought for.

(Excerpted from “The Danger Within: Militant Islam in America” by Daniel Pipes) The Muslim population in this country is not like any other group, for it includes within it a substantial body of people—many times more numerous than the agents of Osama bin Ladin—who share with the [9/11] suicide hijackers a hatred of the United States and the desire, ultimately, to transform it into a nation living under the strictures of militant Islam.

Although not responsible for the atrocities in September, they harbor designs for this country that warrant urgent and serious attention.

The ambition to take over the United States is hardly a new one. The first missionaries for militant Islam, or Islamism, who arrived here from abroad in the 1920's, unblushingly declared, "Our plan is, we are going to conquer America." The audacity of such statements hardly went unnoticed at the time, including by Christians who cherished their own missionizing hopes. A Muslim majority? Islamic law the law of the land?

Even the most optimistic Islamists concede the task will not be easy. Just as Muhammad confronted die- hard opponents in pagan Mecca, writes Siddiqi, so pious Muslims in America will face opponents, led by the press cum media, the agents of capitalism, the champions of atheism (Godless creeds) and the [Christian] missionary zealots." Doing battle with them will demand focus, determination, and sacrifice.

Wherever that seditious and totalitarian [Islamist] ideology has gained a foothold in the world, it has wrought havoc, and some societies it has brought to their knees.

The preservation of our existing order can no longer be taken for granted - it needs to be fought for.
