Arabic is the Fastest Growing Language in the US
As reported in a 5 October Breitbart article:
“The Census Bureau’s 2014 American Community Survey (ACS) reveals that Arabic and Urdu – Pakistan’s national language– are the fastest-growing foreign languages spoken at home, according to a new report by the Center for Immigration Studies.
After five decades of large-scale immigration, a record 63.2 million U.S. residents, or more than one-in-five, speak a language other than English when at home.
Previous reports have shown that the United States is now the second largest Spanish speaking country in the world. But the new census study shows that the fastest-growing foreign languages, in percentage terms, are languages spoken by immigrants from Muslim-majority countries.
Between 2010 and 2014, there was a 29 percent increase in Arabic, a 23 percent increase in Urdu, and a 9 percent jump in Persian, which is spoken in Iran.”
Is it time to shut the floodgates?
Although many Christians (including myself) may see this as an opportunity to engage some who might consider a world view that centers on a God who Christians call “Father” and who forgives rather than a strict and aloof Allah who demands works and may not grant heaven to even his prophet (Surah 46:8-9).
Still, considering the differences between American society and the societies governed by Sharia, it would be smart for American leaders to slow this flood of Islamic immigrants while we still have a free republic.
