What America Should Learn from the Attack in Brussels

by DAVID HARSANYI

or now, we live in a nation with a well-assimilated, diverse, and patriotic Muslim population, but the situation could always change. Like Europe, we could embrace immigrants from places teeming with radicalism. We could disincentivize assimilation. We could dismiss anyone who has legitimate concerns about these threats as bigots. After every terrorist attack, much of the media predictably cautions Americans about the impending wave of "Islamophobia" — one of the most vacuous and misleading terms in political discourse. Even before the bodies had been cleared off the streets in Brussels, where attacks claimed at least 34 lives with scores of others wounded, the usual suspects were warning about hurt feelings and the big backlash that never comes. Nothing wrong with being vigilant, I suppose.

But is the Muslim community 'well assimilated' here in America? I don't believe that statement for a second.

Some are.  I've known a few who are the children of immigrants that have assimilated.  But there seems to be a good number who haven't.  I think it's human nature for people to self segregate.  California is an example.  We have areas that are known for their cultures.  We have well known Korean, Mexican, Jewish, Black, You-name-it, areas/towns.  Of course they aren't wanting to blow up the place or kill non believers, and seem to embrace the American way.

Radical Islam is a violent ideology.  How you get to the root of that and change their thinking seems to be a question no one has answers for.

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but the citizens capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.

I tend to agree with you. However, there seems to be a growing number here who do not desire to assimilate. Therein lies our challenge. We must be diligent until we can make that determination. I heard some lefty loon expressing what a small percentage are jihadist. Damn, what percentage were the two in San Bernadino and all the other "lone wolves" out there. Better safe than sorry.

A good Muslim is a Jihadist according to well thought of Muslim Scholars. Time will tell who listens to the Scholars.
