Metaphorically, a “Trojan Horse” has come to mean any trick or stratagem that causes a target to invite a foe into a securely protracted bastion or place. Ancient Greeks used a trojan horse to enter the city of Troy, and conquered the city. Move ahead to modern times, and we have the migration of millions of Muslims to the European continent as well as the United States. Although the majority of Muslims are peaceful, there is a large percentage who are not. There are 44 percent who fall into the categories of Radical and Jihadists. Out of the 1.8 billion Muslims across the globe, only 1 percent are Jihadists, with 43 percent being Radicals. The Radicals and Jihadists have the same goal, Shariah Law.

Shariah law is the immutable, perfect law of Allah that’s superior to all “man-made law” – worldwide. It also believes society and upbringing changes us for the worse. That the only way to overcome wickedness, and attain paradise, is to follow Allah’s Divine Law, i.e., Shariah. The other part we need to be aware of is, Islamists are commanded to seek Shariah by whatever means necessary, be it deception, jihad, etc.

Shariah law does not coincide with our laws. Many of the Muslims who come here as legal immigrants wish to live by Shariah law. They hold women as second-class citizens, who must obey their male counterparts, not show their faces in public, along with wanting the death of all homosexuals. And if you don’t agree to their laws, then you also need to die. Now you see why Western culture and Islamic culture cannot exist together. The other problem with this is, we don’t know who is who. If you’re a Muslim migrating to the United States, and you’re of either a radical or  a jihadist mindset, we don’t know what your intentions are.

Just like the “San Bernadino” killers, a Muslim couple who were actually jihadists involved in a mass shooting, killing 14 people and seriously injuring 22 others. They were Muslims who migrated to California from the Middle East. When I explained how the Twitter comment about them cost me my job in the Department of Energy after Trump won the election – this was the impetus for my book.

They came here under false pretense. They had no intention of assimilating into the United States as immigrants did decades ago. Those people were proud to be Americans. They wanted to learn our language and become part of American culture. Many Muslims on the other hand have no intention of assimilating into American culture. Their goal, as described in the Quran, is to convert or kill the infidel.

Let’s take a look at a few verses from the Quran. This is from Chapter 9 verse 5; When the sacred months are over, slay the pagans where ever you find them. Capture, besiege, and ambush them. If they repent, perform prayers and pay the religious tax, set them free. Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Chapter 9 verse 29; Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – (fight) until they give the jizyah (yearly tax historically levied on non-Muslim subjects) willingly while they are humbled.

Chapter 25 verse 44; Do you think most of them listen and understand? They are nothing but as cattle, straying and confused.

These are a few of many verses throughout the Quran, which reflect the evil side of Shariah law. Muslims who believe in Shariah law, want Islam to dominate the world. These include Radical Islam, Political Islam, Fundamentalists, Islamists, Muslim Brotherhood, Militant Islam, Salafists. There are basically two groups which most Muslims fall into. Mecca Muslims and Medina Muslims. Mecca and Medina are the two holiest sites in the Muslim world, both are in Saudi Arabia. In 610 AD, the prophet Muhammad went to Mecca. He lived in a cave for a very long time. According to the Quran he was contacted by Allah through angels. While in Mecca he was a preacher from 610 – 622 AD. In 622 AD he went to Medina and became a warlord, killing as many Jews as possible. In the Quran, the Jews are enemies.

In the first half of the Quran, Mecca Muslims are peaceful. In the second half, Medina Muslims are very radical. This stands true today, Mecca Muslims are peaceful, religious and spiritual, have traditional ethics, traditional law and government. On the other hand, Medina Muslims are violent, political and militaristic and believe in a totalitarian theocracy. Therein lies the problem we have in the United States.

How do we know which is which and who is who? There are approximately 3.45 million Muslims in America today. The ones who are here with an agenda, hide behind our first amendment.

So, do we just sit back and wait for the next jihadists to slaughter innocent Americans?
