Culture Shock - Muslim Demographics

Islam will overwhelm Christendom unless Christians recognize the demographic realities, begin reproducing again, and share the gospel with Muslims.

Even if you are not a Christian - this is very interesting information. I believe it is imperative to know.
Some quotes from the video (which has a slow beginning - hang with it!):

Historically, no culture has reversed itself from a 1.9% fertility rate. A rate of 1.3% -- impossible o reverse because it would take 80 to 100 years to correct itself.
And, there is no economic model that can sustain a culture during that time.

As a population shrinks - so does its culture.
In 2007 in France, the fertility rate was 1.8%
In England - 1.6%
In Greece - 1.3%
In Germany - 1.3%
In Italy - 1.2%
In Spani - 1.1%
Across the entire European Union of 31 countries the fertility is a mere 1.38%

In order for a culture to maintain itself for more than 25 years, the required fertility rate must be 2.11 children. With anything less, the culture will decline. With anything less, the culture will decline.
Historical research tells us that these numbers are impossible to reverse. In a matter of years Europe, as we know it, will cease to exist.

(on the video @ 2.35)  
Yet the population of Europe is not declining. Why? Immigration, specifically Islamic immigration. Of all population growth in Europe since 1990,  90% has been Islamic immigration.

(on the video @ 2.44)  
In southern France, traditionally one of the most populated church regions in the world, there are now more mosques than churches.
By 2027  1 in 5 Frenchmen will be  Muslim
In 39 years - France will be an Islamic Republic

(on the video @ 3.27) 

In the last 30 years the Muslim population of Great Britain rose from 82,000 to 2.5 million. A 30 fold increase. There are over 1000 mosques, many of them, former churches.
In the Netherlands  50% of all newborns are Muslim.
In Belgium 50% of all newborns are Muslim

(on the video @ 4.27)
The Germany government, the first to talk about this publicly, recently released a statement saying, 
"The fall in the [German] population can no longer be stopped. Its downward spiral is no longer reversible. It will be a Muslim state by the year 2050."

(on the video @ 5.22)
Closer to home?
In Canada the fertility rate is 1.6% -- nearly a full point below what is required to sustain a culture
Islam is the fastest growing religion.
From 2001 - 2006 the population increased 1.6 million
1.2 millon = immigration

(on the video @ 5.50)
In the USA? 1.6%
With the influx of the Latino Nations that fertility rate is at 2.11% which is the bare minimum needed to sustain a culture.
Side note -- a friend of a friend on FB recently complained about how the Latino population is growing here in America (to her great dismay).
I thought two things in quick succession:
1) Well, if America didn't contracept and abort so many babies perhaps the Caucasian population would not be dwindling so fast.
AND 2) Thank God for the Latino population! 
Now, in light of these statistics, in terms of Muslim growth I say again, "Thank God for that Latino Culture influx and may they please bring a strong Catholicism with them."  
Yes, yes, I know the stats on that . . . let's save it for another post AND let us remind ourselves that this CULTURE SHOCK - MUSLIM DEMOGRAPHICS information should serve to ignite our passion to spread the Good Word, to share our Christian faith, to evangelize and to pray, pray pray.

There is SO much more. 
(on the video @ 4.44)   A very telling quote by  Muammar al-Gaddafe

(on the video @ 6.20)
Three years ago a meeting of 24 Islamic organizations was held in Chicago.
The transcripts of that meeting showed, in detail, their plans to evangelize America through journalism, politics, education and more. They said, "We must prepare ourselves for the reality that in 30 years there will be 50 million Muslims living in America. The world that we live in is not the world in which our children and grandchildren will live."

This is important information -- take the relatively small amount of time needed to watch this and the next videos in this post.

From a post I submitted last year:
On  June 18th, 2010, David Wood, Nabeel Qureshi, Negeen Mayel, and Paul  Rezkalla were arrested while having a peaceful discussion at the  Dearborn Arab Festival. This is a video of David and Nabeel discussing  their reasons for showing up at the festival.
Chief of Police: 313-943-2235
Mayor's Office: 313-943-2300
Mayor's Email:
Dearborn  Police and Mayor John C. O'Reilly have accused us of screaming at  Muslims, harassing them, and inciting a riot. What will they say in  response to video proof that they are wrong?

Excellent post. I'm horrified more by the refusal of Catholics to have many children. I don't understand their faith since many are q devout & practicing..why are there so few large Catholic families? & Spain France & Italy..truly shocking!

I agree, Jackie!

We are in unexplored territory, and predictions are dicey. Demographic predictions just assume current trends will continue. We have no way of knowing that that will happen.

While Mexicans tend to be less hostile, Mexican immigration into this country also poses problems. If Mexican immigrants (mostly illegal) do not learn English and learn an appreciation for republican government, we too will lose our culture of freedom. As it is, we already have a soft tyranny.

Anyway, that call to share Gospel misses an important point. We share the Gospel because Christ told us to do so. We spread the Word for the sake of the life to come. It does not work to spread Christianity to serve political objectives (something I too have to remind myself of from time to time). Unfortunately, it is easy to let the concerns of this world distract us and make us forget.
