Thursday we reported that the number of “green cards” the US government has issued to Middle Eastern people is skyrocking, and increased by a whopping 32 percent from 2013 to 2014.
A total of 1,114,453 green cards (permanent residence status) have been issued to Middle Easterners from 2001 to 2014. (Almost 80,000 in 2014 alone.)
In addition, an estimated 50,000 Muslim refugees are admitted to the United States annually through the Refugee Resettlement program.
With such a large influx of Muslims heading to the United States, how long until America begins experiencing what is taking place in Europe?
Every year in October, Muslim men worldwide observe a tradition that started in 680 A.D.
Below is a video of the event from the streets of Manchester, England – a city that is experiencing the results of a massive Islamic immigration.
Shi’ite Muslims brought parts of south Manchester to standstill as part of a ritual self-flagellation procession.
Shi’ites in Rusholme and across the world took part in the activity to mark the martyrdom of the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad.
The event, called Ashura, is a major religious commemoration marking the death of Imam Hussein at the Battle of Karbala in the seventh century in what is now Iraq. It always falls on the tenth day of Muharra, the first month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Devotees take part in fasting and remove their tops to beat their chests, in some cases drawing blood, to show solidarity with the martyr Hussein.
The procession wound its way along Wilmslow Road in Rusholme on Friday afternoon. A number of roads were closed and buses were diverted to allow the procession to take place.
