The Grand Jihad - How Islam and the Left sabotage America by Andrew McCarthy ..... Part 7

Passages from the chapter titled: Rigging the numbers

In northern Virginia alone, "we boast about 250,000 to 300,000 Muslims. In the Washington metropolitan area, about 400,000." This information was gleefully broadcast by the US Department of State, through its official website, "" It was summer 2009, and our customer -friendly foreign service was out to show the American people and the world the vibrant, moderate breed of Islam in Barack Obama's America.

State's vehicle was a short video called "Eid in America" that focused on the feast that ends "the holy month of Ramadan," as our government takes pains to call it. The feast was the occasion, State exclaimed, for "more than 400,000 ethnically-diverse Muslims" to "celebrate" right here in Washington, D.C. State's source for this inflated estimate of the Washington area's Islamic population was Johari Abdul Malik, a prominent Virginia iman - and Islamist. For Abdul Malik, it's all about the numbers ... and the conquest. He has insisted, even more speciously, that Islam is now 'the second largest religion in America," trailing only Christianity. 'Soon, before Allah closes our eyes for the last time,' it will move "to being the first religion in America.".....

....Reliable, readily available data show the sparseness of the Muslim sector in America and its dubious ties to our society. The islamist figures are widely known to be a gross distortion, and the Islamist purpose in inflating the numbers is easily knowable. Yet those islamist figures create the party line dutifully channeled by the legacy media and the US government. "nearly 7 million Muslims in our country today" enjoy the "promise" of "opportunity," President Obama declared in his Cairo speech. He and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton make rote references to the magic, Jew-supassing number, our purported "7 million Muslims Americans."

In a June 2009 interview with French television, Obama even contented with a straight face "if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world." Maybe the president meant to say he had "created or saved" seven million Muslims. Obama obviously knew, in any event, that his numbers were of by a mile because when his fraudulent count sparked a mini-uproar, he - in a flash, and without any explanation - down-shifted the number to (the still bloated) five million American Muslims.

The science of counting Muslim Americans is evidently as rigorous as that for counting "the uninsured" (which plunged from sixty million to forty million with dizzying speed once questions were raised about subsidizing illegal-immigrant coverage), or for tabulating "climate change" (a term that is itself a change from "global waming" thanks to the inconvenience of global cooling.
