Muslim Attitudes in the U.S.

From a 2015 Pew survey of Muslims worldwide:

[A] Pew Research Center survey of Muslims in 39 countries asked Muslims whether they want sharia law, a legal code based on the Quran and other Islamic scripture, to be the official law of the land in their country. Responses on this question vary widely. Nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) and most in Iraq (91%) and Pakistan (84%) support sharia law as official law. But in some other countries, especially in Eastern Europe and Central Asia – including Turkey (12%), Kazakhstan (10%) and Azerbaijan (8%) – relatively few favor the implementation of sharia law.

There’s also this, which should further dissuade us from importing Muslims from anywhere:

When it comes to political and social views, Muslims are far more likely to identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party (70%) than the Republican Party (11%) and to say they prefer a bigger government providing more services (68%) over a smaller government providing fewer services (21%).

One really needs no more evidence than this, coupled with some a priori truths, to deduce the following propositions:

  1. All things being equal, the elimination of Muslims from a society reduces to nearly zero the probability of Muslim terrorist attacks in that society.
  2. The cessation of Muslim immigration to a society will stop senses of demographic momentum and act as a counterweight to emboldened Islamism. This will likely reduce the probability of Muslim terrorist attacks in the society.
  3. Assuming one must prefer any muslim immigrants, then per the Pew styled findings, favor muslim immigration from places like Turkey, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan… and disfavor muslim immigration from places Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan.
