Islam on Capitol Hill

   Just a quick note: I heard much about the Islamic rally in Washington this past weekend. Many were all up tight and worried that Bibles would be banned on Monday and women would have to wear the hijab by Wednesday. Now don’t get me wrong. There is reason to resist the imposition of sharia to be sure, but let’s face it: between 3,000 to 5,000 people showed up. That’s not even a decent 3rd party showing. And at the most, despite what the President says, or CAIR says, there are between 1.8 and 2.5 million Muslims in the US: about the same, maybe fewer, percentage wise, than the number of Buddhists here. Europe has a real issue with Islamization (though, the phenomenon of the second and third generations adapting to the West, having far fewer children, etc., needs to be kept in mind as well), but outside of the incoherent promoters of political correctness promoting Islam as one of the “untouchable” taboo topics in public dialogue, I don’t see the US establishing sharia anytime soon.
