This is a pattern. Islam teaches warfare against unbelievers, hatred of them, contempt for them. It is no accident that these things happen, and we will see more of them, until we wake up to this problem.
I received the email below from a reader responding to a previous Atlas post reporting on Muslim gangs growing more dangerous in Minnesota -- a trend we are seeing in Maine as well, where Muslim gangs are wilding, leaving terror in their wake. Women are intimidated and slapped on the street. Police report that swarms of Somali Muslim boys, some as young as 8, others in their late teens, overwhelm solitary victims through sheer numbers. These gang members carry sticks and rocks with which to intimidate their victims. There are often four or five of them, sometimes as many as a dozen.
In San Francisco, Muslim gangs target gays, there was one depraved series of shootings of gay men, in the face, while the Muslim thugs filmed the attack. The video camera found on scene had eleven such attacks on the memory card. The pattern of Islamic supremacist violence grows in "gateway" cities like Lewiston, Maine; Shelbyville, Tennessee; St. Cloud, Minnesota; Clarkston, Georgia; and Jamestown, North Dakota. Muslim youths stone gay men in Minnesota (here).
THANK YOU for sending out the article on Muslim gangs in Minnesota. We live in Minneapolis and every line in the article is true- Minneapolis is NOT the city it used to be! This is generally a very welcoming city- there have been constant influxes of immigrants, and victims of tyrannical governments, here for years- I can recall as far back as Cambodian refugees coming to our small, suburban school in the late 1970's. They have been welcomed and been very successful in assimilating into parts of the communities.
Unfortunately the Somalian Muslim population has been very different. They do not want to assimilate and are often contemptuous and hostile. I personally have had more than one disturbing "run-in" with extremely rude, arrogant Muslim men who have sworn at and cursed me, using disgusting, sexually degrading terms and gestures, while driving and in stores. Three years ago, my husband and I called for an airport taxi at 4:30 AM- and the driver, a Muslim, stood out in the street screaming and swearing at us for not being ready and waiting for him. We did not have time to call for another taxi. The inside of his cab was filled with Muslim signs, and he played his Middle Eastern music blaringly for the neighbors to be awakened by. Last week I was almost forced off the road by a Somali whose car bore bumper stickers with this message: " Lay Aside Your Pride- Put Down Your Arrogance- Remember Your Grave--- The Answer is in the Qu'ran"
My husband works installing cable TV and Internet services. Most every day he comes home with a story about an apartment he's been in that day, where the place was empty except for giant Palestinian flags on the wall, elaborate rugs on the floor, and large-screen TVs tuned to some cleric screeching at the top of his lungs. The tenant usually has at least two computers ready to be hooked up with Internet. They do not speak to my husband, just point and explain, in the shortest terms possible, what they want done. My husband truly fears that these men order Internet services for malevolent, even evil, anti- American purposes. He has had his work truck broken into more than once by youths when in these neighborhoods of Minneapolis, which have been virtually taken over by Muslim stores and 'halal meat' grocers.
I have seen and heard anchors on different networks laugh and jeer at the idea of Muslims in our midwestern cities. I am very thankful to you, though more concerned than ever, to see you printing articles on this issue. The Somalis here have many advantages such as tax-payer funded rent adjustments, new car-payment subsidies, and many welfare programs. I know they are not all radicalized, but if even just 10 % of them are, we in MN have a real problem that our federal and state governments are ignoring due to Political Correctness. When Muslims roll out their prayer rugs in the middle of drug-store and shopping mall parking lots, causing accidents and near-misses- which happened to my 83 year-old Mother- and expect everyone to respect their rights, it is almost too much to be borne, particularly by elderly shoppers who cannot believe nor comprehend what they are seeing.THANK YOU AGAIN, for bringing this to the attention of other 'Atlas Shrugged' readers, and KEEP SAFE.
