Two years ago Amy Willson penned the following article, explaining the “Hijra.” Because of its relevance to the debate on Senate Bill 200, we are republishing it to bring it back to your attention.

Last week I was privileged to speak at the Meade Republican Women’s group about the topic of the “Hijra” or “the flight” and the Refugee Resettlement Act of 1980. It is important to understand how they are working together inadvertently to spread “Political Islam.”

The Hijra is a vitally important aspect of Islam, so important that it starts the first year of the Muslim Calendar. The Hijra is the Migration of Mohammed from Mecca to Medina. It was through this event that Islam became a dominant political and military force in the middle east. Prior to this event Mohammed had preached Islam at the Kaaba for around 13 years and only had 150 converts. His message became a little more impending and people of the Kaaba became upset because they were quite happy with worshiping 360 different gods at the Kaaba for each day of the moon calendar. Mohammed was eventually thrown out of Mecca. He then fled to Medina where 3 Jewish tribes welcomed him in. These three tribes really didn’t get along with one another and Mohammed used that division for his gain after the Jewish tribes rejected his call to being a “Prophet.” He then tried to convert the pagan’s in Medina and had success. Following that he entered into politics with the support from the pagan’s in Medina. Shortly afterwards some of his followers from Mecca were exiled and found Mohammed in Medina. After Mohammed’s followers found him, he decided to raid caravans heading to Mecca with great success. At the Battle of Badr Mohammed’s 313 men defeated 1,000 warriors. This allowed Mohammed to have greater political sway because he was well financed and he started realizing he was a great Military leader. Mohammed was involved in 66 battles and raids in the last 8 years before his death. He was a religious leader, a political leader and a military leader. It is also important to note that not a single Jew was left standing in Medina within just 5 years of Mohammed’s Migration. He either drove them off, enslaved them or killed them. Also, it is important to understand this because Mohammed is the perfect example to Muslims and Muslims are commanded to Migrate to spread Islam across the world and set up the Islamic State. Islam is not just a religion, but a very powerful political and military force.

So what does the “Refugee Resettlement” have to do with any of this? The Refugee Resettlement program is run jointly between the US State Department, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Homeland Security. Originally the number of refugees were capped at 50,000 and could only be increased by the President after consultation with Congress. Today Congress appears to have completely given up any role in the selection and number of refugees admitted to the US to the wishes of the US State Department, which is following the marching orders of the United Nations High Commission Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). This refugee program has ballooned to over 1 billion dollars in 2014 for just 70,000 refugees. This cost does not include the cost for food stamps, subsidized housing, health care, educational cost for children, criminal justice system cost including translators required by a Clinton-era executive order. Those costs must be absorbed by local and state government which usually are not informed on how many or who are coming in.  The reason for this is the Federal Government works directly with the Voluntary Agencies known as VOLAGS (which is a joke because they rake in millions of dollars to bring in refugees) and the states are left to pick up the tab.

The United States has offered safe-haven to millions of refugees who have faced persecution and should continue to do so but we need to bring in the persecuted not the persecutors. We need to understand the ideology of Islam and realize that not everyone is like us. Instead we are bringing in an Ideology that not only has a history of not assimilating into the host country but has a mandate to subjugate and dominate just like Mohammad did.  They have a perfect recipe for doing that (immigrate, increase and eliminate). We are choosing refugees from cultures alien to the Western Judeo Christian ethic and it makes the refugee program, more impactful than the arrival of other immigrants. Finally, for humanitarian reasons we can help 12 immigrants in their own land for every one that we bring over here.  The added benefit to this model is that we will not be fundamentally changing our country if we do.
