I've been educating myself for over a year and a half now about the religion of Islam and Islamism (those seeking Islamic rule) and what appears to be its full-court press to increase its presence in the West. It's amazing to me this issue is very much a partisan issue and it shouldn't be. How can the democrats not see what Islamists want to do in America? We should all be asking ourselves why this is happening. I'm certainly no expert - maybe a cut above limited knowledge and I can see clearly that Islamists are here in the U.S. An important bit of evidence - a memoradum of an Islamic plan to take over America was submitted as evidence in the on-going trial against a large Muslim charity in America, the Holy Land Foundation. This Islamic organization was shut down in December 2001 following the 9/11 atacks.

They referred to their work in America as a "kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourself for jihad yet. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform jihad..."(page 21).
The Hamas Charter goal: "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."
