    The history of immigration to the United States details the movement of people to the United States starting with the first European settlements from around 1600.

    Attitudes towards new immigrants have cycled between favorable and hostile since the 1790s.

    190 years of immigration... then hostility begins...

    1776.. The Declaration of Independence was received.


    The declaration was signed by representatives from New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.



    The colonial frontier was mainly settled from about 1717 to 1775. These were mostly Presbyterian settlers from North England border lands, Scotland, and Ulster, fleeing hard times and religious persecution.[10] The fourth major center of settlement was the Western frontier, located in the Western parts of Pennsylvania and in the South, which was settled during the early to late 18th century by mostly Scots-Irish, with others mostly from North England border lands. Some French Huguenots and Germans were also present.

    The Catholic Church in the Middle East is under the spiritual leadership of the Pope in Rome. The Catholic Church is said to have traditionally originated in the Middle East in the 1st century AD, and was one of the major religions of the region from the 4th-century Byzantine reforms until the centuries following the Arab Islamic conquests of the 7th century AD. Ever since, its proportion has decreased until today's diaspora tendency, mainly due to persecution by Islamic majority societies. In most Islamic countries, the Catholic Church is severely restricted or outlawed. Significant exceptions include Israel and Lebanon.

    The largest group remaining in the Middle East is the Maronite Church based in Beirut, Lebanon, an Eastern Catholic church in full communion with the Pope and the rest of the Catholic Church.

    Why might there be a problem arising out of Europe or the mIddle East with the Catholic Church?

    Population control. The Catholic Church does not place hope on contraceptives.


    If you take a look at social standings and societal 'ways', it is seemed as if the larger the population the more 'social' the society is. Rather than 'tribal', per se, it is more city dwelling. And city dwellers are deemed as more 'social'. And this also applies to individuals. Men who have many children and/or relatives are seen as more 'sociable'. And when these 'men', who are more 'sociable' are compared to those 'men' with 'fewer' children and/or relatives, the ones with 'more' are usually the ones who have the 'larger' stance in that 'society'. And when another might look upon both males, the one with fewer 'children' and/or relatives could be seen as being more 'rigid', more 'uptight'... And when those males who have many children and/or relatives are seen from the perspective of those males with fewer, they could be seen as more 'broad' in their 'ways' and more 'needing' to be accommodated for; lest they become 'suffocated'.

    The one with many children, many relatives, is the one that would require 'more' space to be able to have his 'room' to 'do things' when compared to the one with fewer children, fewer relatives.

    And when culture is applied, many large homogeneous cultures, although they are all as the 'same', their culture shapes their individual living among one another. Home and Public and even school and work 'culture' helps keep that homogeneous group in 'order' to their own desire.

    But when certain 'broad persons' of a 'culture' begin accepting other foreign currencies as their 'own' culture, and when they have already attained to that broadening of self in their own culture, their 'presence' in that new currency State will need to be accommodated for..



    A man with 'few' children and few relatives in a Country whose currency is not of their original 'culture' will not need to be accommodated for as much than for the man with 'many' children and many relatives in a Country whose currency is not of their original culture. They need to 'retain' their 'identity' and 'freedom' and 'self comfort' as males; even in these different currencied cultures.

    So when these new immigrants lived among one another seeking a place for freedom of worship and Church from Europe's ways, they underwent the same type of influx they received while in their own original 'culture'. They began to be 'squeezed' out of their own 'small familied/children' cultures with their own ways and currencies.


    Although Islam began among small populated 'tribes' of sorts with Muhammad, the 'influx' has increased consistently upward..



    The Arabian Peninsula was, and still is, largely arid with volcanic soil, making agriculture difficult except near oases or springs. Towns and cities dotted the landscape; two of the most prominent being Mecca and Medina. Medina was a large flourishing agricultural settlement, while Mecca was an important financial center for many surrounding tribes.[36] Communal life was essential for survival in the desert conditions, supporting indigenous tribes against the harsh environment and lifestyle. Tribal affiliation, whether based on kinship or alliances, was an important source of social cohesion.[37] Indigenous Arabs were either nomadic or sedentary. Nomadic groups constantly traveled seeking water and pasture for their flocks, while the sedentary settled and focused on trade and agriculture. Nomadic survival also depended on raiding caravans or oases; nomads did not view this as a crime.

    In pre-Islamic Arabia, gods or goddesses were viewed as protectors of individual tribes, their spirits being associated with sacred trees, stones, springs and wells. As well as being the site of an annual pilgrimage, the Kaaba shrine in Mecca housed 360 idols of tribal patron deities.

    During the early years of Muhammad's life, the Quraysh tribe he belonged to became a dominant force in western Arabia.[47] They formed the cult association of hums, which tied members of many tribes in western Arabia to the Kaaba and reinforced the prestige of the Meccan sanctuary.[48] To counter the effects of anarchy, Quraysh upheld the institution of sacred months during which all violence was forbidden, and it was possible to participate in pilgrimages and fairs without danger.[48] Thus, although the association of hums was primarily religious, it also had important economic consequences for the city.


    Muhammad - Wikipedia



    If Muhammad (SAW) removed those 'idols' out from the Kaaba or not, I'm not sure. But it would definitely have been to the benefit of Islam if they were.



    --


    So in Islam, (SAW)... what does that mean, really?

    Seeing that (SAW) after many things, especially after the name of Muhammad, what does it mean?

    To myself it means the same as 'Selah'. Stop, think, take a 3rd person's point of view to the mentionings. 'SAW'... 'Selah'.



    Muhammad (SAW).... * I took a step out of my self into a 3rd person point of view and (saw) the importance of Muhammad... and after I (Selah), took time to ponder upon what I (saw), I mentioned and took note... I (spoke). I (selah-ed).



    To 'see' and 'say'... even 'say-loudly'.

    Matthew 10:27 "What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops."



    Laudate : praise
