There is little if anything that doesn’t enrage Muslims these days, and the lame stream media calls it “controversial”.
“I would like to ask him how he plans to stop the ‘Islamization of America?’”Â asked Jamal Qaddura. “Where is the ‘Islamization of America?’”
I tell you where it is, Jamal. Take a look in the mirror.
Or look at this:

Its all about outnumbering Jews; Â and Scaramouche Â is trying to get on top of it:
The census, by the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies in Chicago, found that American Muslims almost doubled in the past decade.
It estimated that Muslims are now numbered at 2.6 million in 2010, from only one million in 2001.
Unofficial estimates put the number of Muslims in the US at between six to seven million…
The census also found that Muslims now outnumber Jews in much of the American Midwest and South.
The report attributes the sharp rise in the number of US Muslims to conversions and immigration.
The survey also estimates that there are more than 2,000 mosques across the United States, of which 166 are located in Texas.
An earlier Muslim study found that the number of mosques in the US jumped in the past decade to reach more than 2,000 mosques.
The study, released in February, also found thatÂ US Muslims are estimated at seven million.
So which is it–2.6 or 7?Â And how is it possible for there to be two estimatesÂ that areÂ so vastly different?
Update:Â Here’s another (and altogether weirder) way to put it–counterintuitively,Â the number of Muslims in the U.S.Â has doubledÂ since 9/11.
Excerpted fromÂ The New York Daily News: A new survey reveals the dramatically changing face of religion in America, with the number of Muslims in the U.S. soaring 67% in the decade since the 9/11 attacks.
Data released Tuesday from the 2010 U.S. Religion Census shows Islam was the fastest growing religion in America in the last 10 years, with 2.6 million living in the U.S. today, up from 1 million in 2000.
Mormonism too saw remarkable growth, with a 45% increase in adherents. It added nearly 2 million members since 2000, bringing their number in the U.S. to 6.1 million.
“Both of these groups entered more than 200 counties that they weren’t in 10 years ago,” said Dale Jones, data analyst and mapping specialist for the Religion Census.
The findings represent religious people who attend services. Census surveyors collected data on congregational adherents of 236 religious groups, including full members, their children and others who regularly attend services, with a 5% margin of error.
In the Midwest and parts of the South there are now more Muslims than Jews for the first time. Immigration from parts of the Muslim world and a small rise in conversions are the driving force behind the growth, researchers said. Jones also speculated that the burst of anti-Islam sentiment after the 9/11 attacks could have done more to grow the religion’s presence in the U.S. than slow it. Those on the fence about converting to Islam may have decided to do so on principle./strong
