There is a fifth column in America, and we can't be blind to its existence

I accept as entirely true that most American Muslims accept and enjoy the values of a pluralistic culture. We must be aware, however, that not all do, and that while they enjoy are material benefits, they would also like to impose a worldview antithetical to American values (and that, incidentally, would utterly destroy the high standard of living we enjoy in America). So, this is something we can't hide from:

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." This was the sentiment of Omar M. Ahmad, the Chairman of the Board of the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR, as told at an Islamic conference held in Freemont, California, in July of 1998.
