In a stunning terrorist attack, Muslims armed with Kalashnikovs have murdered journalists, bodyguards, and policemen to a total of twelve victims in Paris. More were injured. The paper Charlie Hebdo had defiantly posted cartoons and tweets critical of Mohammad and Islam. The terrorists escaped and are currently on the loose, presumably in Paris.
In view of the evidence, I do not consider that cautious doubt is warranted concerning whether or not these were Muslims or what their motive was.
As long-time readers know, I have repeatedly said that Muslim immigration is a bad idea and should be stopped. This is not to say that all Muslims are going to commit acts of terrorism. It is, rather, to say that this group contains terrorists, supporters of terrorism, supporters of sharia, and those likely to be "radicalized" and become terrorists or supporters or terrorism in percentages far disproportionate to their representation in the population. They are also more likely than other immigrant groups to create domestic enclaves in which honor killings, suppression of Christian evangelism, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, and other sharia-motivated behaviors flourish and are difficult to root out.
The opposition to Muslim immigration per se makes some mainstream conservatives uncomfortable. We're always supposed to seek some other solution--trying to encourage immigrants to assimilate and be (or remain) "moderate," for example. But why? Immigration is not a right.
Even if the wicked jihadi murderers who committed this atrocity in Paris were, in fact, born in France, somewhere in the recent past the story of how they come to be there can be traced to Muslim immigration to Europe. You can bet the farm on that.
So now is it okay to oppose Muslim immigration?
