Skip to comments.Giants in the Land? (The reality: in Latin America, and even in Africa, Islam is collapsing)

There is story in the Book of Numbers: Moses sent in spies to scout out the land of Canaan before the tribes of Israel entered in to conquer. They came back with a frightening report of giants in the land. The Israelites were demoralized and begged to go back to Egypt. Only Joshua and Caleb dissented.
Numbers 14:3: "Why is the Lord bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn't it be better for us to go back to Egypt?"
The story is a sad one. The Israelites were consigned to wander in the desert for decades because of their lack of faith. The grumpy generation of complainers would have to pass away before Israel would be allowed to enter into the Promised Land. Only Joshua and Caleb, the dissenting spies, would see it.
Today, TV talking heads and government experts are telling us that that there are Islamic giants in the land. We should make peace now, and negotiate for whatever scraps these giants will gracefully allow us. When I started the research which led to my website, I trusted many of these experts. When I looked for evidence of this Muslim bastion among our neighbors to the south, I was amazed to find that according to some reliable sources, there were at least 25-30 million Arabs in Latin America.
I found out that the Argentine government had donated land to the Saudis to build a mosque in downtown Buenos Aires. Hugo Chávez had allied with Iran. The Iranians were opening up a Spanish language propaganda network: HispanTV.
However, most of these alarming revelations turned out to be nothing more than chimeras.

We have established, from the Argentine academics cited above, that Islamic authorities grossly exaggerate, and so 100,000 Muslims seems to be the more reliable figure for Muslims in Venezuela. Islam Today was off by a factor of 2.5. If one divides their figure of 40,000 Muslims in Caracas by the 2.5 factor, we arrive at 16,000, which is almost identical to the American Foreign Policy Council figure of 15,000 in Caracas. Again, this confirms our suspicion of Muslim mendacity.
Whether we use the more reliable 15,000 estimate or the 40,000 one, one is still left with an oddly low number of Muslims in Caracas. One would expect more Muslims to be concentrated in Venezuela's chief port. This causes even the claim of 100,000 Muslims in Venezuela to be suspect.
The same effect of Muslim exaggeration was noted in Israel by Yoram Ettinger., whose demographic work in the contested areas discovered that the Arabs were inflating their population by over a million.
The U.S. State Department in 2009 reported that in Brazil:
Muslim leaders estimate that there are between 700,000 and 3 million Muslims, with the lower figure representing active practitioners.
The extent of Musim exaggeration is breathtaking.
Suicidal Western subsidies have kept Islam alive. Islam cannot support itself.
Not just in Latin America, but even in Africa the Muslims admit that Islam is collapsing. The roar of Islam that we see is that of a wounded and dying animal.
The real mass conversions in Latin America are to varieties of Pentecostal and Baptist Christianity. Over a million people a year are becoming Evangelical in Brazil. Chile also has a growing Evangelical community. Argentina is 9% Evangelical now. Even the Arabs in Chavez's Venezuela have started to convert.
Yeah, well, I’m not comforted. It’s doin’ just swell in the middle-east, Europe and PC America.
Remember when the Russians were "10 feet tall"? (That was a long time ago . . . I'll admit)
Thanks for posting.
Just ONE fo those rotten bastards is one too many.
Islam is not economically productive, especially Islamic societies without oil revenue to prop them up. Look at the per-capita GDP of Muslim nations.
A religious Muslim CANNOT accept science and remain a religious Muslim. This limits their economies.
The fact: the 2010 Brazilian census listed only 35,167 Muslims.
The spin: “there are more than two brazilian muslims in South America”.
It will collapse a lot faster if you knock out one of the Five Pillars. Just sayin’.
Cowards, liars and murderers of the weak, aged and in firmed. Innocent men, women and children are always soft targets that flee in terror from these supermen. You must also know that the moslem world with financial assets employ the finest advertising agencies in the world to form positive public opinion. Our media driven culture is a wholly purchased commodity of Saudi Arabia.
