The nation’s first, but certainly not last, majority-Muslim city council has just been elected in Hamtramck, Michigan, a historically Polish city. But before anyone could break out the sparkling grape juice and toast our new diversity, Ibrahim Algahim — a Muslim activist in Hamtramck – crowed at a victory party:
Today we show the Polish, and everybody else.
Multicultural euphoria, meet Islamic supremacist reality. Algahim, at least, was not ready to link arms and sing “Kumbaya,” as the diverse peoples of Hamtramck marched towards multicultural harmony. Randy Wimbley of Fox 2 Detroit reported:
[H]istory [was made] in Hamtramck as voters elected the first majority Muslim city council in the country.
But rather than ease racial tensions, the comments from a Muslim organizer threaten to divide. [Algahim’s comment] may create or widen the rift between the growing Muslim and shrinking Polish community in Hamtramck.
One of those with rising tensions was one of the defeated — and Polish — city council candidates, Cathie Lisinki-Gordon:
I’m shocked that he said that. I’m a very good friend of his. I cannot believe that he would ever profile any select group. Especially when his community has felt ostracized and profiled for many years.
So ostracized and profiled … that they were able to gain a majority on the city council….
….Algahim’s triumphant and triumphalist words at his election party, as his comrades defiantly made the V for Victory sign, serve as a warning: the future is much more likely to be studded with increasing aggressiveness and demands from the local Muslim community in Hamtramck rather than with (all-beef) weenie roasts and sing-alongs. The local multiculturalists are racing toward this dystopian future while remaining blissfully unaware that Islamic supremacism even exists. They are still confident that rainbows, moonbeams, and unicorns lie just ahead.
The gloriously multicultural Muslim city council of Hamtramck, Michigan, introduces a scenario that is unlikely to end well. And it’s just a foretaste of what is going to be happening all over the nation before too long.
