If we care about the humane, dignified treatment of women and children, we must at least familiarize ourselves these growing trends in Europe.
Ann Corcoran is the indefatigable blogger at Refugee Resettlement Watch who has been observing the resettlement program here in the U.S. since 2007, very long before it was a hot political issue or even a minor national issue. She’s done a tremendous amount of research on the Refuge Act of 1980, the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the Refugee Admissions Program, the 9 “VOLAGS” (voluntary agencies) authorized to handle resettlement in the U.S., and a ton of other stuff. (See her FAQ to get a sampling.) Because her research is so extensive, RRW is a heavily-traversed and cross-linked website for issues relating to refugee resettlement in the U.S.
The article below, posted by Corcoran on April 16, is slightly aside from her normal subject matter but very interesting nevertheless. It documents how the welfare systems of European nations are not only encouraging massive demographic growth of Muslim culture in Europe, but is also bringing the issues of female genital mutilation, polygamy, and child brides to the fore.

Trending in Europe: Polygamy, Child Brides, and Female Genital Mutilation
Do you ever wonder what America will look like in a few decades? Just look to Europe.
As an American expat living in Europe, let me give you a first-hand account of the cultural changes we see unfolding in European society. Because this theme is so big, I’ll only focus on three disturbing topics most of us would rather not discuss: polygamy, child brides, and female genital mutilation. These trends are spreading throughout Europe as a direct result of immigration polices and demographic changes. Even though the United States is further behind in the process, American politicians are following Europe with the exact same policies.
The Big Myth
First we need to name the big myth that underpins all of this insanity. It’s the idea that all refugees/immigrants arriving in our country will adopt Western values. We hear this from Barack Obama, Angela Merkel in Germany, and David Cameron in Great Britain. But it’s a lie. Anyone who spends a day in Brussels, an afternoon in Frankfurt, or a weekend in Stockholm knows the real truth. Tragically in Europe, it appears that integration is a myth.
Profiting from Polygamy
In Britain, a Muslim men can take multiple wives and have numerous children with each wife because everything will be paid for by the welfare system. These women are often forced into contracted marriages. Here’s how the process works, using a hypothetical example:
A Muslim man arrives in London and is granted asylum. The next year 4-8 of his family members arrive through family reunification. Then he arranges a marriage through family in Pakistan. His new wife arrives from Pakistan and she eventually has five children. She is unemployed and they receive generous welfare benefits. A few years later the man marries another woman from Pakistan and repeats the same process. Using this strategy the family can explode to 15 or more people, with each wife entitled to housing and benefits by the British taxpayers. With the growing strength of the Muslim community throughout Europe, Sharia law and legalized polygamy are now accepted norms.
If you think this is an exaggeration, you can read all about this trend unfolding not only in the Britain, but all over Europe:
“The multiple marriages have been encouraged by changes made to the British welfare system by the previous Labour government, which allowed Muslim immigrants to have a second, third or fourth wife (and in some cases five or more) treated as a single mother who can get a house and an array of other state payments for herself and her children.” [August 2012 Report]
“The “blind eye” turned towards polygamy in Britain – and in France, Belgium and Germany – has ensured that some Muslim men are having upwards of 20 children by multiple wives, almost always at the state’s expense.” [November 2015 Report]
Welcome to the Islamization of the West. Polygamy is pure Islam as directed in the Koran, Sira, and Hadith. Mohammed, for example, had 11 wives and a large number of sex slaves. The Koran commands all Muslims to follow the example of Mohammed.
The Troubling Trend of Child Brides
The influx of refugees has exposed another cultural schism between Islam and Western civilization. You would think that in countries such as Denmark, the Netherlands, and Norway, we would not be struggling the issue of child brides. But here we are in 2016 discussing this topic.
Numerous asylum seekers are arriving in Europe with wives who are below the age of sexual consent. One 23 year old Muslim man arrived with his 11 year old wife and 18 month old child. It’s a trend we see throughout Europe, reflecting the accepted practice in the Muslim world. Selling little girls as young as eight years old into marriage is a practice in Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries.
Muslim men having child brides is pure Islam. According to the Sira, Mohammed’s favorite wife was Aisha. She was six years old when she was officially contracted into marriage with Mohammed, and nine when she was brought into Mohammed’s sex harem. Mohammed was 53 years old at that time. The Hadith even describes how Mohammed allowed her to bring dolls into the sex harem because she was so young (Hadith; Muslim:177).
The Sickening Practice of Female Genital Mutilation
Here’s another topic that nobody, including me, wants to discuss in 2016 Western civilization. But thanks to our immigration policies and the Islamization of the West, female genital mutilation is increasingly practiced in our society and we need to face the uncomfortable facts. Female genital mutilation (FGM) includes “cutting off the female’s clitoris or labia and sometimes sewing the vagina shut” to prevent intercourse. FGM is practiced in much of Islamic society and parts of Africa.
Female genital mutilation is a growing problem in Europe. In 2003 the British government passed the “Female Genital Mutilation Act of 2003” to mitigate the spread of this barbaric practice. An official European parliament report estimates over “500,000 women and girls in Europe are living with female genital mutilation and an estimated 180,000 girls are at risk… [but] these figures are underestimated and do not take into account second-generation or undocumented migrants.”
The problem is so common in multicultural Germany, Berlin is now home to Europe’s first clinic devoted to treating victims of FGM.
Female genital mutilation is also part of Islamic culture. The practice is referenced in the Sira, which describes a man named Hamza who was the “son of a clitoris cutter” (Ishaq: 557). The Hadith assumes both men and women are “circumscised” as it describes bathing after “their circumscised genitalia touch” in intercourse (Muslim: 003,0684). Female genital mutilation was a common practice in 7th century Arabia, and now also 21st century Europe.
Western Civilization or Mass Immigration?
An entire encyclopedia could be written on the cultural changes we see unfolding in Europe. Literally every aspect of society is slowly changing, from big cities to small villages. Ancient churches are being closed and replaced with mosques and “Islamic education centers.” German bakeries are closed and replaced with “Doner Kebab” shops on every corner. And of course, you see the demographic changes everywhere: an older European society is slowly dying out and being replaced by a younger Muslim society.
My fellow Americans, the choice is yours. You can either choose to keep your society, civilization, and way of life, or you can choose multiculturalism in the form of mass immigration, but you can’t have both. If you want to see what your future looks like if you choose the latter, just turn your attention to Europe.
As Nigel Farage of the UK Independence Party says, “Europe is burning.” You don’t have to make the same mistakes.
