The one thing us Muslims who live in the west admire, is the fact we won't be stoned for wearing trousers and the freedoms that is denied in many other parts of the world. I don't think we'd give that up anytime soon

I see absolutely no problem in what the link video presented. Muslims aren't bad people, and our culture is constantly changing anyway. The video's tone is obviously completely against the Muslim cultural takeover. This makes me wonder if the facts that are presented are true in every sense, or if they are presented in an incorrect manner. Nonetheless, anybody who thinks a rise in the Muslim population is a terrible thing isn't thinking straight.
The demographic which has the largest percentage of total of voters in this country is immigrants. Muslims are just like any other legal immigrant: they move here because they respect our country and believe in the fundamental freedoms which we enjoy. They would never try and change America to an Islamic republic. Sure, in a few years your chapel down the street might be a mosque. But what's the difference? We're all allowed to practice our religion no matter what anybody says about it.
"All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language...No man is an island, entire of itself...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." - John Donne
Ok, so ... apart from this video being hilarious, I find it scary. Not because of the facts, but because of the fact people are actually thinking that the U.S., which has a population of over 300 mil, can become a Muslim nation with just 50 mil Muslims. The U.S. has a majority of Christians, yet it is still not a Christian nation. Unfortunately, the U.S. is a religious nation and not a secular nation.
Second, the video is obviously biased. The last couple of lines clearly have something to do with a religious group (I'm guessing Christians) wanting a "call for action." This kind of thing scares me more than any Muslim ever will. A call for action? Really? What are people gonna do? Another crusade? Good luck with that.
The U.S. is not a Muslim nation or a Christian nation or Jewish nation or any nation that has a "religious prefix," for lack of a better term.
The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.
