Muslim aggression as function of Muslim percentage of population

Laura G. writes:

On the so-far-unproved assumption that the car bomb in Times Square was the work of a Muslim group, I am reminded of an article by Edward Cline in Family Security Matters from 2008. It described the behavior of Muslims in various societies in relation to the proportion of the population that is Muslim. In light of the number of violent incidents and terror attempts by Muslims that have been occurring in America, it strikes me that the reality is ahead of what Cline estimated, and that the Muslim aggression is significantly more than what would be expected on the basis of numbers alone. Though Muslims are probably no more than one percent of the overall U.S. population, we seem to be moving into the situation that Cline says obtains when the Muslim population reaches ten percent, i.e., lawlessness as a means of complaining, car burning, threats when “offended,” etc.

From Cline’s article:

Below two percent Muslims are well-behaved citizens and cause little apparent trouble for the host society.

At two percent and three percent Muslims begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

From five percent on Muslims exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They push for the introduction of halal (“clean” by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves—along with threats for failure to comply (United States, Switzerland, Sweden). At this point, Muslims work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, or Islamic law. (England, Netherlands, Philippines).

When Muslims reach 10 percent of the population, they increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris—car burning). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam, Denmark—Mohammed cartoons, murder of Theo van Gogh).

After reaching 20 percent of a population expect hair-trigger rioting, Jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning (Indonesia, Ethiopia).

After 40 percent you find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare (Bosnia, Chad).

From 60 percent you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and jizya, the tax placed on [conquered] infidels (Sudan, Albania).

After 80 percent, expect to find state-run ethnic cleansing and genocide (Syria, Egypt, UAE).

Muslim behaviour is not just dependent on their relative size, but also on the character of the local population.

For instance, in a strongly anti-Muslim nation such as China, Muslims will have to be much larger then two percent before they start to misbehave or go on Jihad.

In a free and tolerant society, trouble starts at a much lower level. The fact that trouble in America has started at a much lower population level than predicted by the Cline formula, merely shows that America is a tolerant society.

There has been some reticence among Muslims to start up the jihad in America as they were being held back by 9/11, as they were not quite sure what American response would be. However, they were re-assured by President Bush’s “Islam is the religion of peace” mantra, and finally the election of Obama, that America is truly a civilised and tolerant society.

Ditto England.

Welcome to the “Dead Nations Society.”

Excellent point.

This is already happening on a large scale in America. Muslims recruit from black prisoners in all the prisons, and are very successful with it. On a somewhat different note, I was at our State Republican convention the last three days. Two of the security guards on duty at the Minneapolis Convention center were Somali. This did not give me a secure feeling. We are recruiting from the enemy.
