Nonie Darwish: Why the U.S. should not take in Muslim immigrants


AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish explains why there should be a moratorium on immigration from Muslim countries:


Islamic turmoil never fails to dominate the headlines, and the West is yet again split on how to deal with the polarizing issue of Islamic immigration. But liberals can no longer afford to be motivated by only political short-term goals expressed with the usual shouting, name-calling and emotion. This issue can really hurt liberal and progressive causes, as well as conservative causes.

Looking at the big picture of relocating populations, the first thing that comes to mind is that it should benefit and not hurt either the Muslim nations that are sending the immigrants out or Western nations that are absorbing the immigrants in.

If by absorbing large numbers of moderate Muslims from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan etc., are we really helping these nations to reform? The answer is no, and this is why.

Western governments are reassuring their alarmed citizens that they are vetting the Muslim immigrants and bringing in only the good and peace-loving Muslims, which is questionable, to say the least. Judging from past history, Western governments have failed in their vetting of Muslim immigrants and have allowed in many shady characters, jihadists, radicals, haters, Islamic groups and mosque leaders that are loyal to the jihadist agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood and other terror groups. It is good to remember the efficiency of our vetting process when ICE, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, sent an extension to the visa of one of the 9/11 terrorists about 6 months after 9/11/2001.

But let us assume that Western governments this time will succeed in vetting Muslim immigrants. The important questions we should also ask ourselves are:

1- If we keep taking in the so-called “moderate Muslims” from the Middle East and leave the terrorists and bad guys, who will be left to fight ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, Boko Haram or whatever the future name might be for the next Islamic terror group? Every time a terror group seem to be defeated, a new one much more radical and stronger pops up.

2- Who will lead the badly needed reform movement in Islam in the heart of the Middle East if most or all moderates move to the West?

3- Are we giving the wrong message to the Muslim world and showing them that we are serious about calling for an Islamic reformation if we keep rescuing those who might reform Islam? It seems that the more radical and tyrannical they become, the faster we come to the rescue. Are we rewarding bad behavior? It certainly seems so.

It is also good to ask, before we allow them in, if large numbers of Muslims immigrant will benefit the West?

That should not be difficult to answer, since we have 1400 years of history of Islamic conquest and immigration around the world. The one thing we must learn is that Muslims do not assimilate and are forbidden from doing that by Sharia. The political and social structure and culture of every country that absorbs large number of Muslims was challenged and changed. Muslims aim at changing the government of host countries rather than adjusting. If you do not believe that, please read the demands of any Muslim minority in a non-Muslim countries.

I have no doubt that many immigrants to the US from the Middle East, of whom I am one, both Muslim and Christian, have assimilated and positively contributed to America.

But unfortunately, it is a fact that a good portion of Muslim immigrants to the West have jihadist goals closely tied to the best interest of Jihadist Islam. Even if the original parents who moved to America were vetted as moderate, there are no guarantees that their children will not radicalize. All they need to do to get radicalized is read the Quran and follow the requirements of Sharia.

The West must also ask itself: what is the West rescuing Muslim refugees from? The honest answer would be from Islam itself as it is practiced today; from the political chaos caused by Sharia and the extreme poverty the Islamic system perpetuates, since Islam is mostly interested in jihadist expansion rather than improving quality of life.

Political Islam is in control of the Muslim world today and is expanding. There are about 49 to 50 majority Muslim countries around the world taking about 1/3 of the habitable land on Earth. Most Western nations that are absorbing a large number of Muslims are not reproducing; they have a low birth rate. Muslims are aware of this population imbalance in the West, and are taking full advantage of it as part of their jihad.

Western leadership and media are sympathetic to rescuing Muslims, but are obviously ignoring the fears of their own citizens — fears of losing Western values, freedoms and democracy to Islamic jihad, which is at war with and despises Western freedoms.

Last night, I was told by a Middle East source that ISIS is in fact encouraging and intentionally herding desperate refugees merged with ISIS infiltrators towards its Northwest borders to head to Europe, for the sole purpose of invading and overwhelming the West. Pushing Muslims to Europe will also takes the pressure off of ISIS and other Muslim countries, which would rather give their problems to the West to solve.

What the West does not understand is that Muslim governments are dependent on and in need of getting rid of their ever-expanding population to the West, in order to lift the pressure on them for reform, modernity and change. It is important to mention that modernity, change and novelty are rejected by name in Sharia. According to Islamic law, the number one duty of a Muslim head of state is to rule by Sharia, which rejects any novelty (meaning reform). Thus the message to Muslims who aspire for Western style reform and democracy is to go live in the West, because you are not getting reform or democracy inside any majority Muslim country.

What the West needs to know is that by constantly absorbing the moderate Muslim population that wants reform, the West is not doing the Islamic reformation movement a favor, but just the opposite; it is delaying any hope for a reformation when the West releases the pressure on Muslim governments by absorbing those who want change.

If the West is serious about helping bring about an Islamic reformation in the heart of Islam, it should do just the opposite of what its policy has been for the last decades. It should stop immigration from Muslim countries for at least until the West is able to figure what is in its best interests and also while Islamic jihadists are waging war on Western civilization.

Some journalists in the West have been criticizing Donald Trump for wanting to do just, and for saying what the gut feeling of most Americans is telling them. Prominent journalists are telling Trump that if we stop immigration from Muslim-majority countries, we will upset moderate governments and turn the moderates against us.

I believe that what will happen is just the opposite. This is one of the most important bargaining chips the West has, if not the number one, after US petrodollars. If we stop immigration from Muslim countries, both radical and moderate Muslim governments will learn to respect America more and will be ready for concessions, especially in regards to the hate and hostile education towards the West in all Muslim countries.

What Donald Trump is suggesting is probably the strongest message from the West, telling the Muslim world “you must change and reform and end the culture of jihad if you wish to join the rest of the world in peace and harmony.”

It is time for the West to cut off the lifeline that it is extending to the Muslim world without realizing and that is empowering radical Islamic jihad. It will need much awaited guts from the West. Muslim countries will not be uncooperative and hostile to the US as a result, but in fact they will start respecting our conditions and will move towards reform. The West needs strong leadership that will do just that.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    The only way to solve this refugee problem is directly at the source. Stop isis from making more refugees, install, by force if necessary, an administration to assure security in the former caliphate. Forget about western hallucinations of democratic elections for a while, let the locals come up with a functional government, respecting all members of society, for them, return the refugees to their homes, using negative economic incentives if necessary. then give them some help rebuilding their country and economy, not just by financial gifts but investment in the country. When they have something worth owning they will work to keep it. Warm hugs and a shoulder to cry on plus a welfare cheque are not going to do it. The financial burden on a weakened western economy of unrestricted humanitarian aid is unsustainable, if something is not done to help the needy help themselves, there will be no help or hope for millions. Including europeans. As well, very proactively discourage the violent proselytizing of islam.

    • marlene

      We need to declare war, enjoin allied forces, and fight to win, until these rabid locusts are gone and done for!

      • Mahou Shoujo

        When the fight starts, there is no longer an”if” involved, fight to win, most assuredly isis will be.

        • Mudpuppy

          Our “leaders” don’t have the will to fight to win. They worry too much about “collateral damage”. With Moslems, there is no collateral damage. We should be doing the scorched earth thing on them.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            True, it is duly noted that when islamic terrorists set off bombs, they desire to cause as much collateral damage as possible. Taking the high road against terrorists is a feeble justification for being a sissy.

          • Mudpuppy

            We have to get brutal in order to win this thing. Time to utterly destroy those savages. I don’t care about collateral damage to them. There are no civilians in Islam. They are all fair game.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            There was no consideration given to the Japanese pertaining to collateral damage to Hiroshima and Nagasaki when they were bombed. No need to developed morals and ethics to cover cowardice.

          • Mudpuppy

            Berlin or Dresden either.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            All of these slaughters could have been prevented by governments behaving peacefully. However those who resort to violence are asking for the destruction they get. Islam is no exception.

          • Mudpuppy

            No argument here. Islam has been begging for destruction. It’s time we obliged them.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Especially at this time of giving, 72 virgins seem to be what they’re obsessed with.

    • honeybee

      Merry Christmas Mahou:

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      I’d rather see muslum states destroyed than rebuild. The US tried to rebuild the islamic hellhole states of Iraq and Afghanistan but as soon as the US left they reverted to their natural form of iron age islam. I don’t want anyone taking money out of my pay check to support muslum apes anywhere.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        True, if islam was forced to rely on its own devices it would have starved to death within a couple of years of being invented.

      • Mudpuppy

        Amen to that. When Bush started that “nation-building” crap, I knew that was a mistake. They can’t be “nation-built”. We would have to occupy them forever and that is out of the question. The best thing is to put a strong-man dictator in charge with a warning that we will be back if he gets out of line.

    • sonoitabear

      ” install, by force if necessary, an administration to assure security in the former caliphate.”

      Because that worked SO well in Iran, right?

      • Mahou Shoujo

        There are better examples than contemporary progressive politically correct failures. The allies occupation and reconstruction of Germany, Italy and Japan are example to learn from. Not the insipid failures of a timid burka whipped democrat America.

  • marlene

    This is part one. Part two is throwing out ALL of them who are here!

    • Reagan40

      Part three is taking the koran and hadith to court and judging it as hate speech against non moslems.
      Part four is banning islam and instructing moslem majority countries to protect religious minorities and allow building of churches the way mosques are built in Christian majority countries.
      Part five is placing sanctions on moslem countries unwilling to comply with parts 1- 5.
      Part Six declaring war against everything that smells islam if all or parts of parts 1- 5 is not working.

      • marlene

        lol – thanks for completing the list. Just wanted to mention that in the Immigration and Nationality Act, allowing ANY muslim entry into the United States is against the law, under Chapter 2, Section 212 of the Act.

  • Debi Brand

    A few moments ago, at Jihad Watch, I posted the following:


    dlbrand says ………..

    The following, excerpts from a recent e-mail from a cherished friend who is also my mentor in my study of Islam, former Bangladeshi Muslim, “Abul Kasem.”


    Dear DL;


    It is impossible to have moderate Muslims in the absence of a moderate Quran.

    Those who claim to be moderate are actually hypocrites and opportunists, dishonest and practice takiyya and kitman. Actually, they are more dangerous than the Jihadists.

    Good Muslims are the ones who are honest, and truly live by the words of the Quran and Sunna.
    Those veering from the above tenets are bad Muslims–or not Muslims at all. But they are afraid to declare their apostasy for fear of facing the wrath of good Muslims.

    Much of what is stated the in the essay is true and shows the scope and ferocity of Islam.

    Donald Trump’s idea deserves some merit. The only point is that he should distinguish between bad Muslims and good Muslims. I think, US should only accept very bad Muslims–. Allowing these bad Muslims protection for their apostasy. They will be allies. The US must stop admitting the good and moderate Muslims.

    some of the list of mohammed sex squad
    (1) mohammed had sex with his son’s wife
    (2)mohammed had sex with his dead aunt
    (3)mohammed had sex with a woman older than his mother
    (4) mohammed had sex with a slave captured in war
    (5) mohammed had sex with a 6 year old and declared the sex open at the age of 9.

    In all these, where is the religion of peace and mercy.
    QURAN 48:29 mohammed is apostle of allah and his followers are wicked and ruthless to unbelievers.

    example. Enoch Powell gave the famous “Rivers of Blood” speech on 20
    April 1968 in which he warned about continues unchecked immigration from the
    Commonwealth to Britain. As a result he was sacked from the Shadow Cabinet. There
    was a big debate about this issue.

    But by 1972, only holders of work permits, or people with parents or
    grandparents born in the UK could gain entry – significantly reducing primary
    immigration from Commonwealth countries.

    It is for the attention of all today hypocrisies.

  • conan_drum

    The West USA and EU helps the Islamic countries twice over, first by sending them large amounts of aid (cash) which they do not use to help their people, and second by taking in their surplus population and housing and giving them benefits. Pakistan is a notorious example as it accepts aid but works against the interests of the West.
    It would have collapsed decades ago but for the aid and the same applies to Hamas which also gets aid and uses it to prepare for war with Israel and making its leadership rich.
    Plus as mentioned by Reagan40 the Islamic countries do not protect the civil and human rights of non muslims living within their borders

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Pakstain sponsors muslum terrorism. Mumbai was an operation planned and carried out ultimately by one of Pakstain’s own intelligence agencies.
      I for one don’t believe Pakstain’s lie that they didn’t know OBL was in Pakstain.
      As if no one noticed that huge fortified mansion OBL built right next to a military training installation.

    • Mudpuppy

      All good reasons to stop that crap.

  • Drew the Infidel

    To add to these points pay attention the next time you see images of the so-called “refugees” and take note that the bulk of them are service age single males who should be home and fighting for the future of their country, despite the narrative the left is propagating.If the vetting process is so efficient, how did “Pipe Bomb Patty” wind up in San Bernardino?

    • Mudpuppy

      Inhumane? Humans have to be involved for that to take place.

  • stealth4

    As Ms. Darwish points out, the refugees may revert from moderate Islam to radical Islam because of their holy book, the Koran. The Koran will not be eradicated from Islam, so “reformed” Islam appears to be a pipe dream.
    The Reconquista of Spain and Portugal back in the Middle Ages drove the Muslims from Europe by 1492. Now Europe wants to invite them back! Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. Europe and the U.S. are doomed if large numbers of Muslims are allowed in as “refugees” .

  • atl slayer

    Good article :)

  • vercingetorix

    Wasn’t she a muslim when she first came to America? Even so, she is still right. No western countries (including Israel) should take in more muslim refugees. It is simply not safe to do that. The love for their people and the duty of protection of their country should be more than enough for politicians to make the decision not to take in more muslims,
    Trump and Darwish are perfectly right on this issue!

    • Mr Paul Middleton

      Apostates from Islam are a valuable resource, provided they’re true apostates, and if you check Nonie out, her books and (YouTube) videos, you’ll see that’s especially true of her – along with other such examples (just to name a few) as Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Ali Sina, and Maajid Nawaz. Google them!

      • wilypagan

        Yes, her book Cruel and Usual Punishment is a must read for anyone concerned about women’s rights.

  • Veritas Aequitas

    These so called “Refugees” have been allowed by Daesh to migrate to Western nations. Daesh keeps and murders the people who should truly receive refugee status. These same “refugees” murder Christians migrating within their midst.

    Also, how can any reasonable person believe that their is a verifiable “vetting process”? If you want to have an example of the abject failure of the vetting process, look at the recent fanatical Muslim nut jobs who murdered people in San Bernardino. What this shows me that there are probably more like them just waiting to murder in soft target areas.

    Moderate Islam is the foundational preparation for Radical Islam. Moderate Islam prepares the beliefs and attitudes necessary for Muslims to become radicalized.

  • Dennis

    Great commentary. Her comments have my full support. I have long urged the so-called peace loving Muslims to reform, reject and terminate the teachings of its Book and the man made Sharia law that requires Islamic followers to accept a barbaric and totally outdated belief system of world domination. They need to do this before the world finds itself in a bloodbath of monumental proportion. That should be the kind of action that all Free World leaders should be encouraging, while simultaneously using their military might to directly destroy the active terrorist groups. This women who has rejected Islam for all the right reasons is right on with her comments. Let us hope that our leaders will see the righteousness in her commentary.

      Joe … if you like Trump, you LOVE eminent domain. And you LOVE Socialized healthcare. And you LOVE hearing Trump brag about buying politicians. If you like Trump, YOU are part of what is wrong with America.

      • Nonie

        But Trump is much much better than Hillary or any of the Democrats running. We need to stand by the republican nominee regardless and get as smart as the Democrats. They know how to stick together even behind someone like Obama!

        • Dorrie

          Trump is a close friend to Hellery and contributed heavily to her foundation. He is no better than the Clintons are. Bill Clinton talked him into running to split the party for Hellery – just like Ross Perot split the party in 1992 when Slick Willy won. It’s all a big game to Trump and he’s the lead actor, just like his Hollywood game show!

          Trump is all for eminent domain, thinks Socialized medicine (i.e. Obamacare) is great, brags about buying politicians and hid $Billions in Swiss banks before filing bankruptcy 4 times, putting thousands out of work and harming his lenders. Then he said, “They deserved to be hurt, they aren’t nice people.”

          Trump is a liberal and always HAS been. Only the weak minded will fall for his ear tickling about illegal aliens and having Mexico pay for a wall. Sure it sounds great, but it’s all hot air and HE knows it. Unfortunately, stupid Republicans who support him, DON’T! And STUPID can’t be fixed!

          He has the ability to split the party for Hellery to win – and that’s EXACTLY what his plan is! If that happens, she will destroy what Obama hasn’t already done by the end of next year!

          WAKE UP AMERICA!!

  • Mudpuppy

    Because they are Moslem should be a sufficient reason and all that is needed.

  • joe1429

    I guess the 41% of republican voters, are also whats wrong with america too according to you, dorrie?? Wake up!! Trump running away with the nomination!! Go TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!! Prediction. Trump wins by a LANDSALIDE in nov)))))))))))
