Muslims May Outnumber Us in 50 Years : France mandates teaching Arabic and Islam in Schools
Muslims May Outnumber Us in 50 Years : Early this month French President Emmanuel Macron signed a decree authorizing the Arabic language and Islamic culture to be taught in schools as part of their new curriculum. In like manner, mosques continue to be built in Europe while churches are being shut down. This all tends to prove what Algerian President Houari Boumendienne mentioned in a 1974 address to the United Nations: “One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”
Undoubtedly Christian Europe is seeing a demographic collapse, while Muslims continue to increase in number. While Western Europeans may be in denial of the inevitable, we Americans should not be complacent about this, either—just last year, Muhammad made the top 10 of the most popular name for boys in the U.S.
Muslims May Outnumber Us in 50 Years : The Demographic Picture
With 0.2% of the world’s Muslims live in North America, in the U.S. Muslims are projected to double from 0.9% of the population in 2010 to 2.1% by 2050 based on recent demographic and migration patterns—President Donald Trump’s recent executive order temporarily freezing immigration from seven predominantly Islamic countries has only affect about 12% of the world’s Muslims.
The Pew Research Center predicts, if this pace continues, within the next half century or so, Christianity’s long reign as the world’s largest religion may come to an end, potentially making the sharia a force to be reckoned with—by 2040 Muslims will replace Jews as the United States’s second-largest religious group by 2040. This is based on a just-released report that has observed the original population growth projections for religious groups that says Muslims will grow more than twice as fast as the overall world population between 2015 and 2060.
Muslims May Outnumber Us in 50 Years
They’re having more kids
Muslims are having more children than members of the seven other major religious groups analyzed in the study. Muslim women have an average of 2.9 children, significantly above the next-highest group (Christians at 2.6) and the average of all non-Muslims (2.2). In all major regions where there is a sizable Muslim population, Muslim fertility exceeds non-Muslim fertility.
The Wall Street Journal American reported on Wednesday that according to federal figures release on the same day, the U.S. has had the lowest birth rate last year within the past 35 years.
Fertility Rates in decline
About 3.75 million babies were born in the U.S. in 2019, down 1% from the prior year, provisional figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics showed. The general fertility rate fell 2% to 58.2 births per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44, its lowest level since the government began tracking the figure in 1909.
While the world’s population is projected to grow 32% in the coming decades, the number of Muslims is expected to increase by 70%—from 1.8 billion in 2015 to nearly 3 billion in 2060. In 2015, Muslims made up 24.1% of the global population. Forty-five years later, they are expected to make up more than three-in-ten of the world’s people (31.1%).
Numbers are rising Worldwide
In a 2018 independent study, the situation is far more alarming than what the Pew Research Center projects.
- In France, for example, while each family has 1.8 children, Muslims have 8.1 children per family. In southern France, there are now more mosques than churches; 30% of children are Islamic. It is foreseen that by 2027, one in every five Frenchmen will be Muslim. And, if that rate continues, within two generations France will be an Islamic Republic.
- In Great Britain, within the last thirty years, the Islamic population rose from eighty-two thousand to two and a half million: a thirty-fold increase; there are over one thousand mosques, many of them former churches.
- In the Netherlands, over 50% of all newborns are Muslim, and in only fifteen years half [its] population will be all Muslim.
- In the United States, the current fertility rate is 1.7 children per family; with the influx of the Latino nations, the rate rises to 2.11, not enough to sustain a culture. In 1970, there were one hundred thousand Muslims in America. Today there are nearly four million.
No birth control = more babies
Whatever the true numbers may be, Muslims, unlike Westerners, do not practice abortion or artificial contraception, therefore having a higher birth rate. Let us also not forget about those children born out of polygamous marriages. In either case, in order for a culture to maintain itself for more than twenty-five years, there must be a fertility rate of at least 2.11 children per family, which both Europe and the U.S. cannot muster.
The data are the latest sign of how American (and European) childbearing indicate that, unlike Muslims, millennials have been slower to form families than previous generations, in part, economists say, because they are less financially secure than those before them.
“There are a lot of people out there who would like to have two children, a larger family, and there’s something going on out there that makes people feel like they can’t do that,” said Melanie Brasher, assistant professor of sociology at the University of Rhode Island, who studies fertility.
The Eventual Islamic Takeover?
We must remember, as I explain in my book Islam: Religion of Peace – The Violation of Natural Rights and Western Cover-Up, sharia advocates, such as the American-Palestinian activistLinda Sarsour and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), do not merely pursue concessions from government officials regarding sharia law, but rather their full and total capitulation, especially since they hold that everyone, regardless of religious affiliation falls within its jurisdiction.
As expressed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam (1990):
“Allah…gave humanity a universal and well-balanced civilization, in which harmony [under the Islamic Sharia] is established between hereunder and the hereafter, knowledge is combined with faith, and to fulfill the expectations from this community to guide all humanity, which is confused because of different and conflicting beliefs and ideologies and to provide solutions for all chronic problems of this materialistic civilization.”
A Possible Solution?
Perhaps Western governments, in order to encourage couples to overcome financial concerns in order to have children, should follow what Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán did. Understanding, the demographic decline in his country before a rising Muslim population in Europe, has been the implementation of the Family Protection Plan, in which
• every woman under 40 years of age will be eligible to a preferential loan when they first get married;
• preferential loans for the family home purchase scheme will be extended; families raising two or more children will now also be able to use it for purchasing resale homes;
• families with two or more children will be repaid 1 million forints (roughly over 3,000 USD) of the mortgage loan;
• women who have had and raised at least four children will be exempt from personal income tax payment for the rest of their lives;
• grandparents will also be eligible to receive child-care fees and look after young children instead of the parents, the prime minister added.
Ultimately, if the notion of the family is going to be promoted, society has to equally advocate marriage between male and female and its scope of the procreation and proper formation of children.
I have been told numerous times that so long as Muslims remain in the minority in the America, the pro-sharia campaign will never take over. Well, Islamists do not necessarily seek to be a majority in the West, so long as they can control and direct our politics. As I wrote in a previous article, they have already gotten a foothold in our society by inserting themselves in political offices and lobby groups. Imagine at this rate who much more powerful they will be in fifty years’ time unless something is done?
