Muslim Immigrants Must Not Assimilate, Says US Progressive Ally Linda Sarsour

Muslim Immigrants Must Not Assimilate, Says US Progressive Ally Linda Sarsour, by Neil Munro.

Muslims in the United States should not assimilate into American society, but should instead act “to please Allah and only Allah,” said Linda Sarsour, a rising star among progressive Democrats, last weekend.

“Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community. It is not to assimilate and to please any other people in authority. Our obligation is to our young people, is to our women, to make sure our women are protected in our community, and our top priority, even higher than all those priorities, is to please Allah and only Allah.” …

She urged Muslim groups to build alliances – but to not integrate — with other groups in America, saying “You are not [numerous] enough on your own …. we need to build coalitions, we need allies.” …

Sarsour’s frank demands for an Islamic political movement and for a self-segregated Islamic society in the United States echoes the broadly accepted strategy of self-segregation among Islamic activists in Europe and the United States. The separatist strategy is intended to grow their populations while shielding them from surrounding secular and Christian cultures, which Islamic believers see as profoundly illegitimate.

Sounds like she is for colonizing the US with an incompatible culture. The left likes to say — when it pretends that all people are blank slates and any old third world immigrants will do just as well as first world ones — that America is a nation built on an idea, a proposition nation. Since when did that idea include pleasing Allah and Sharia law?
