Muslim growth in U.S. troubles Minnesota ministry

According to the Pew Research Center, approximately 3.35 million Muslims reside in the United States at the present time – but by 2050, says Pew, the Islamic population is projected to more than double from about 1 percent of the U.S. population to about 2.1 percent. At that pace, America would be home to more Muslims than Jews.

In the wake of the terror attack this week in New York City, Jan Markell, founder, and director of Olive Tree Ministries, finds those numbers “troubling.” She notes that the Pew study points to the high birthrate of Muslims in the U.S.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)“I think [for] those of us living in areas heavily populated by Muslims – who, by the way, do not assimilate; zero percent assimilation, not one will assimilate … and I’m speaking from personal experience here in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area – this is extremely troubling,” she tells OneNewsnow.

Markell contends that “infiltration by population” is a way Islamic supremacists want to overwhelm Western countries.

“I think that goes by all sorts of names from ‘civilization jihad’ to ‘immigration-type jihad,'” she continues. “So multiculturalism diversity is going to sink the entire Western world eventually if it’s allowed to go on another 20 to 30 years.”

But while the high birthrate among Muslims concerns the ministry leader, the Pew survey also found that 58 percent of Muslims in the U.S. are immigrants. Sayfullo Saipov, the suspected NYC attacker – who attended a mosque in New Jersey – immigrated to America from Uzbekistan.

A Messianic Jewish leader admits being troubled by a new study that shows Muslims will eventually outnumber Jews in the U.S.
