Islamic Takeover: More Than 90 Muslims Running For Political Office In The US
As America continues to run from the law of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, she continues in the very curses that God promised a rebellious people. One of those is that foreigners would come in and rise above the citizens of the land. That is happening in America today. It’s now being reported that over 90 Muslims, most of whom are Democrats, are running for political office in America and the numbers grow with each passing year.
Apparently, the election of President Donald Trump is being pointed to as the reason more Muslims are seeking office.
The Washington Post reports:
More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many are young and politically inexperienced, and most are long shots. But they represent a collective gamble: that voters are so disgusted by America’s least popular president on record that they’re willing to elect members of America’s least popular religious minority group.
Although their number seems small, the candidacies mark an unprecedented rise for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been underrepresented in American politics.
There are more than 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States, but Muslim Americans hold just two of the 535 seats in Congress. And the Muslim community’s voter participation pales in comparison to the general public’s.
The rise of Muslim candidates coincides with the growth of the predominantly immigrant population and a partisan shift that has played out over a generation. In a 2001 Zogby poll of American Muslims, 42 percent said they voted for Republican George W. Bush in the previous year’s presidential election, while 31 percent said they voted for Democrat Al Gore. By last year, just 8 percent of voting American Muslims in a Pew poll said they voted for Trump, while 78 percent said they voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

While Clinton’s campaign never garnered broad enthusiasm from Muslim communities, Trump’s campaign — which called for the monitoring of mosques and a ban on Muslims entering the United States — delivered a jolt on election night that some American Muslims likened to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
While WaPo attempts to paint people like Fayaz Nawabi, a 31-year-old candidate for San Diego City Council, as someone who is just holding to American ideals, the fact that he is open about his anti-Christ religion (1 John 2:18; 2:22; 4:3; 2 John 1:7) demonstrates that he is the direct opposite of what America was founded upon, the Bible and the Christ it presents, who is none other than God in the flesh (John 1:1, 14, 17-18).
