ISLAM'S GROWTH IS THE RESULT OF RELATIVISM IN THE WEST

If I could shout this from the mountain tops --I would. Relativism is so pervasive in the West--it has even penetrated good and holy people who have become uncertain and even afraid to assert the existence of truth and condemn lies and false religions. Truth is not subjective--nor is it up to man to decide what is true and what is false. Truth exists outside of man and despite man's assent or acquiescence to it.

The dissolution and rejection of absolute truth is precisely due to the disunity of Christianity and the creation of personal religion. Over the last 500+ years we have accepted the notion that everyone is free to create their own version of Christ, Christianity and ultimately their own truth. As a result we now as a culture, lack standing to condemn those who personally and sincerely believe they possess the fullness of truth but in reality lack Christ who is truth. To condemn personal religion and thereby false religion would amount to a condemnation of what the West itself has become.

Recent Catholic convert, Magdi Allam, recently asserted that it is relativism that has caused the growth of Islam in the West. Excerpts from (
CNA).- "Magdi Allam, warned this week that Islam is growing as a result of the ideology of relativism that pervades the West and claims that there are many truths instead of one unique Truth.

In an article published by the magazine Mundo Cristiano and quoted by Analisis Digital, Allam

CHURCH OF ENGLAND BISHOP CONDEMNED BY HIS OWN FOR ADVOCATING THE CONVERSION OF MUSLIMS TO CHRISTIANITY

The Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, who happens to be Britain's only Asian archbishop, appears to be the lone voice in the Church of England who advocates the conversion of Muslims. Nazir-Ali, accused the Church of failing in its duty to "welcome people of other faiths" ahead of a motion at July's General Synod in York. His statements were heartily condemned as intolerant and arcane.

From the
Telegraph: "The Rt Rev Stephen Lowe, the former Bishop of Hulme and the newly appointed Bishop of Urban Life and Faith, said: "Both the Bishop of Rochester's reported comments and the synod private members' motion show no sensitivity to the need for good inter-faith relations. Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs are learning to respect one another's paths to God and to live in harmony. This demand for the evangelisation of people of other faiths contributes nothing to our communities."

A Church of England spokesman added:
"We have a mission-focused Christian presence in every community, including those where there are a large number of Muslims. That engagement is based on the provisions of Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Read More...

DOES CATHOLIC PROPHECY REVEAL THAT ISLAM WILL CONVERT TO CATHOLICISM?


In the end times a great Monarch is to emerge before the appearance of the anti-Christ. This Monarch will restore all things to Christ and the Catholic Church--including Islam. His reign is foretold by every great Catholic prophet. And it is said of him:

"He shall reform the Church of God." (St. Francis of Paola, 15th Century)

"He shall restore the apostolic discipline." (St. John of Capistrano 15th

ISLAM WILL VERY SOON CONQUER ROME

A Palestinian MP representing Hamas declared in a televised message that Islam will "very soon" conquer Rome, spread throughout Europe and finally take over the Americas.

Yunis Al-Astal, a Muslim cleric, said in an April 11 broadcast on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV,
"Very soon, Allah willing, Rome will be conquered, just like Constantinople was, as was prophesized by our Prophet Muhammad.

"Today, Rome is the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital, which has declared its hostility to Islam, and has planted the brothers of apes and pigs in Palestine in order to prevent the reawakening of Islam. This capital of theirs will be an advanced post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, and even Eastern Europe.

"I believe that our children or our grandchildren will inherit our jihad (holy war) and our sacrifices, and Allah willing, the commanders of the conquest will come from among them," he said. "Today, we instill these good tidings in their souls, and by means of the mosques and the Quran books, and the history of our prophets, his companions, and the great leaders, we prepare them for the mission of saving humanity from the hellfire on the brink of which they stand."

A segment of the address was taped and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI.

GET OUT OF MY BUS-- SO I CAN PRAY

This is so pathetic. A white guy from the U.K. who is a convert to Islam and who drives a bus--stopped his bus and told his passengers to get off so he could pray.

From The Sun: "The white Islamic convert rolled out his prayer mat in the aisle and knelt on the floor facing Mecca.

Passengers watched in amazement as he held out his palms towards the sky, bowed his head and began to chant.

One, who filmed the man on his mobile phone, said: “He was clearly praying and chanting in Arabic.

“We thought it was a wind-up at first, like Jeremy Beadle.”

The 21-year-old plumber added: “He looked English and had a London accent. He looked like a Muslim convert, with a big, bushy beard.

“Eventually everyone started complaining. One woman said, ‘What the hell are you doing? I’m going to be late for work’.”

After a few minutes the driver calmly got up, opened the doors and asked everyone back on board.

But they saw a rucksack lying on the floor of the red single-decker and feared he might be a fanatic. So they all refused.

The passenger added: “One chap said, ‘I’m not getting on there now’.

“After seeing that no-one wanted to get on he drove off and we all waited until the next bus came about 20 minutes later. I was left totally stunned. It made me not want to get on a bus again.”

Yesterday the driver, who said his name was Hrun, told The Sun: “I asked everyone to get off because I needed to pray. I was running late and had not had time."

Islam is winning Western converts due to the nihilism and emptiness of our consumerist and hedonistic Western lifestyle. People who long to rebel against our pervasive and sick culture seek meaning and a radically new lifestyle that sets them apart. But rather than see devout Catholics who truly live their faith (and who are native to Europe)--they see Islam. Our apostasy has its consequences.

ST FRANCIS AND THE CONVERSION OF THE MUSLIMS


I recently finished an amazing book called St Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Muslims by Frank M. Rega published by TAN. This book makes clear that St Francis made it his priority to convert the Muslims. Unfortunately St Francis' image has been distorted by liberal revisionist writers over the years who have created a false notion of him as a passive "PETA" pantheists who just happened to be Catholic. This book will tweak this modern notion of St Francis by revealing the truth of who he really was--an inspiring, courageous, Catholic who loved the truth and sought to boldly bring Jesus to everyone-- even those who were blinded by heresy.

Rega has thoroughly researched Francis and stands on firm ground in his telling of the story of Francis and his attempt to convert the Sultan. The famous meeting begins when Francis accompanies the crusaders to Damietta, Egypt with the goal of having a private audience with Sultan al-Malik al-Kamil who was the Islamic ruler of Egypt.

Prior to the battle of Damietta, Francis received a prophetic vision that the crusaders would lose the battle. He hesitatingly revealed his vision which was dismissed. The battle went forward, and the crusaders lost.


The crusaders losses were many. As one chronicler wrote--John the Baptist gained many companions that day due to the great many beheadings.
"This horror befell about fifty horsemen, of the Knights Templar, thirty of the Germans, and over twenty Hospitallers."

Remarkably it was the loss at Damietta that gave St Francis the opportunity to finally meet the Sultan face to face in an attempt to convert him to the Christian faith.

St Francis sought permission to enter the camp of the Sultan from the Papal Legate who was hesitant to grant permission since al Kamil had reportedly stated that
"anyone who brought him the head of a Christian should be awarded with Byzantine gold pieces". Eventually when confronted with the insistence and persistence of St Francis, the Papal legate allowed Francis and one companion, Brother Illuminato, to go into the Muslim camp.

Early documents all agree that upon entering the camp

POPE TO BAPTIZE PROMINENT EX-MUSLIM MAGDI ALLAM AT EASTER VIGIL

This is truly a cause for celebration and it is fitting that it occur on the day of our Lord's resurrection. Italy's most prominent Muslim is to be baptized by Pope Benedict at the Easter Vigil.

As previously reported
here Magdi Allam was a non-practicing Muslim who has become a staunch opponent of the Islamization of Europe. He is an Egyptian born columnist and vice-director of Corriere della Sera, Italy’s leading daily newspaper. He has become Italy’s most prominent critic of Islam and his views have become highly regarded in more conservative Catholic circles.

Allam's mother sent him to a Catholic boarding school in Egypt, where he began studying Western culture and civilization. He later immigated to Italy.

He has supported a ban against building new mosques in Italy and has sought to expose underground relationships between Italian mosques and international terrorist groups. His writings and opinions have led to numerous death threats and have necessitated him to be under constant guard.

Allam on the Islamization of Europe: "Europe is already a bastion of Islamic extremism. Just look at the attack on Mike's Place in Tel Aviv, which was carried out by British suicide bombers drafted by Hamas; the massacre by Islamists in Madrid and in London; the slitting of director Theo Van Gogh's throat in Amsterdam; and the dozens of Islamic terror attacks that were prevented in Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Holland."

"This bastion exists thanks to a widespread network of mosques, Koran schools, financial bodies and charitable institutions linked to the Muslim Brotherhood; Moroccan, Tunisian and Algerian

TOP VATICAN OFFICIAL FOR MUSLIM RELATIONS CALLS ROWAN WILLIAMS NAIVE ON SHARIA LAW


ROME (Reuters) - The Vatican's top man for relations with Islam on Tuesday criticized the Archbishop of Canterbury as mistaken and "naive" for suggesting that some aspects of Sharia law in Britain were unavoidable.

Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, in a wide-ranging discussion with reporters about Christian-Muslim relations, also said he was confident that a new, permanent body between the Vatican and Muslims would help defuse misunderstandings in the future.

"I think it was a mistake, a mistake because, above all, one has to ask what type of Sharia. And then, it was a bit naive," Tauran said in answer to a question at a breakfast meeting.

"One can understand his good intentions but it seems to me he did not take into consideration either them (the Muslims), the English juridical system, or the

JESUS AND MOHAMMAD COMPARED


The following article was written by best-selling author William J. Federer. His latest book is
"What Every American Needs to Know about the Quran: A History of Islam and the United States."

"What motivates fundamental Muslims to violence?

Much effort has gone into answering this. Muslim apologists are quick to point out Christians have also committed violence. Secularists suggest anybody who believes in God is prone to violence, conveniently ignoring the atheistic killings of the French Revolution, Stalin's purges and Mao Tse-tung's Cultural Revolution.

In an attempt to uncover motivations, founders of the world's two largest religions can be compared. According to the http://www.CIA.gov World Factbook, the world's 6.5 billion people are 33.32 percent Christian and 21.01 percent Muslim.

If a computer acts up, the technician resets it to the default settings it had when it left the factory. If followers of a religion act up, one should examine the default settings the religion had when it left its founder.

MUSLIM UNIVERSITY STUDENTS DEMAND ACCOMMODATIONS FOR THEIR RELIGION



More and more Muslim students are demanding accommodations for their religion on university campuses. If Catholic students demanded similar accommodations they would be laughed off campus. But for some reason the atheistic campus elite are oftentimes willing to give in to the religion of Islam. Why oh why?

Harvard Sets Women-Only Hours for Gym, Complying With Muslim Students' Request. Since Jan. 28, the Quadrangle Recreational Athletic Center has been open only to women from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays.

The change was prompted by a request from the Harvard College Women's Center, which was approached by six female Muslim students, said Robert Mitchell, communications director of Harvard's Faculty of Arts and Sciences.

UN REPORT CALLS FOR DISESTABLISHMENT OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND DUE TO LACK OF BELIEVERS AND OFFENSE TO MUSLIMS

"The divisibility of the Church is the cardinal document of Anglicanism, and its most fundamental heresy." Abbott Chapman (20th cent)

According to a recent study conducted by the U.N., two-thirds of British citizenry claim no religious affiliation. The 23-page report by a special rapporteur of the U.N. claims that the 2001 census which found that nearly 72 per cent of the population is Christian is no longer accurate.

Excerpts from
TIMESONLINE: "The report calls for the disestablishment of the Church of England. It says that the role and privileges of the Church do not reflect “the religious demography of the country and the rising proportion of other Christian denominations”.

"The report says that there is an “overall respect for human rights and their value” but it gives warning of discrimination against Muslims.

"Citing research that 80 per cent of Muslims in Britain feel that they have been discriminated against, the report singles out the Terrorism Act 2000 for particular criticism. Under the Act police in some areas can stop and search people without having to show reasonable suspicion.

The report’s author also criticises terms in the Terrorism Act 2006 for being “overly broad and vaguely worded”.

Certainly, if a church is founded upon the notion that Christ's Church can be divided, then this same church therefore becomes subject to division, disestablishment and even elimination itself. The curse of the Reformation may well be the Islamization of Britain.

"And so the stage is set for the chastisement which the prophecies say will be very severe for England." Catholic Prophesy, Yves Dupont.

DUTCH CATHOLICS RENAME LENT "RAMADAN" TO APPEAL TO MUSLIMS

This is a liberal's version of evangelization--to change the Church to conform to the world. Diabolical concepts such as relativism and religious indifferentism are proof that the smoke of Satan has indeed entered the sanctuaries of the Church. Liberal Catholicism has all but destroyed the Church in an attempt to Protestantize it--which is a pew-emptying failure. Now they hope to convert the Muslims by Islamizing Catholicism. From the Dutch bishop who advocated calling God "Allah", to the renaming of lent. What's next? Liberals may seek to rename the Bible "The Koran"-- after all, in their eyes it's all the word of God or should I say-- the word of Allah. The irony is that such relativism and "tolerance" lead only to one's own eventual obliteration and demise. Further, such weakness makes conversion from Islam to Christianity futile--since there is nothing to convert from or to.

From
Telegraph.co.uk: "Dutch Catholics have re-branded the Lent fast as the "Christian Ramadan" in an attempt to appeal to young people who are more likely to know about Islam than Christianity.

THE FIRST MUSLIM-BORN HEAD OF STATE MAY BE IN AMERICA--NOT EUROPE

Great mystery surrounds Barack Hussein Obama's religious beliefs and upbringing. I do not know what is worse --that he may be a Muslim apostate or that he could turn out to be a professing Muslim. While the Islamization threat is much more apparent in Europe due to immigration and dismal birth rates, the average American feels much more insulated and seemingly has the luxury of ignoring the reality of the danger that Islam poses to the entire Western world (despite 9-11). So many long to believe that the problem lies with the radical elements in Islam rather than with the religion itself. This ignorance could make America just as vulnerable to Muslim domination as Europe.

From Mr Thomas Landon via Brussels Journal: "If I had been asked two months ago “Which Western country runs the greatest risk of electing a Muslim-born leader and how soon do you think this is going to happen?” I would have bet on the Netherlands somewhere in the next decade. Today, it looks as if the first Western country with a Muslim-born leader might very well be the United States next year, when President Barack Hussein Obama enters the Oval Office."

"Perhaps Mr. Obama strikes the Europeans as the “most European candidate” because he was born a Muslim. If America can have a Muslim-born leader, why not Europe, many Europeans will ask. They know that the latter is “unavoidable” (to use the archbishop of Canterbury’s words). In America, Mr. Obama’s Muslim family background (unlike Mr. Romney’s Mormonism) is a non-issue because he attends a Christian church. Nevertheless, being born from a Muslim father, raised by a Muslim stepfather, having been enrolled at Read More...

ANGLICAN ARCHBISHOP: SHARIA LAW INEVITABLE


This is where the loss of faith and apostasy has led the West-- to capitulation by so called Christians to the enemy of Jesus Christ. False charity, false ecumenism, and false Christianity bring about weak men who collude with Satan to accomplish the ruin of civilization and ultimately Christianity.

As a civilization we are reaping the fruit of the Reformation which was a rejection of authority and and an embrace of relativism and indifference to truth. Every man now lives by his own contrived truth--no
one religion possesses truth, and there is no unified voice to stand for truth and against the tyranny of secularism and Islam. Instead there are ineffective and self-deprecating leaders like Rowan Williams who embrace, celebrate and are even willing to adopt the beliefs of those that seek the destruction of their very nation and church (and ironically would delight in beheading Williams and any homosexual clergy). When the Bride of Christ is divorced and the "life" which Christ promised to those who consume His flesh is absent-- then Sharia law is an inevitability. And the stench of weakness, capitulation and appeasement will only incite further demands from Islam in its pursuit of domination. (Thanks to Roger in New Zealand)

From the
BBC: "The Archbishop of Canterbury says the adoption of certain aspects of Sharia law in the UK "seems unavoidable".

"Dr Rowan Williams told Radio 4's World at One that the UK has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.

"Dr Williams argues that adopting parts of Islamic Sharia law would help maintain social cohesion."

Social cohesion? Rather than seek social cohesion and transform our beliefs and civilization to Islam we should seek the conversion of Islam to Christianity. Read More...

THE LAUNCH OF A UNITED EUROPEAN PATRIOTIC PARTY BASED ON CHRISTIAN TRADITIONS TO FIGHT ISLAMIZATION


Some good news from the Eurabian front-- a few exceptionally astute politicians have identified the need to unify in order to defend their respective nations, to reclaim their Christian identity and to resist all that seeks the destruction of Western Civilization. Now if only the secular media would refrain from identifying all those who hold such ideas as "far right-wing". With God's mercy may the defenders of Europe prevail over those who seek its destruction.

EXCERPTS FROM
DEUTSCHE WELLE: "Leaders of right-wing nationalist parties from four EU member states have announced plans to create a European "patriotic" party that would protect the continent against immigration, "Islamization" and globalization.

"The heads of Austria's Freedom Party, France's Nationalist Front, the Bulgarian Attaca party and Belgium's Vlaams Belang on Friday, Jan. 25, told journalists in Vienna that they had agreed to set up a new party in order to defend Europe from numerous challenges that it faces today.

"We say: patriots of all the countries of Europe, unite," Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache said at the news conference, also attended by French right-winger Jean-Marie le Pen, among others. "Because only together will we solve our problems."

MUSLIM LAWYER SUES OVER ITALIAN "CRUSADER STYLE" FOOTBALL UNIFORM

It is small news items such as this that foretell the future of Europe. A Turkish Muslim lawyer is taking legal action over the uniform of the Inter-Milan football team stating that it offends him and reminds him of the Templar Knights.

From Timesonline: "Baris Kaska, a lawyer in Izmir who specialises in European law, said that he had lodged a complaint in a local court against Inter Milan, which last month played the Istanbul team Fenerbahce in a Champions League match at the San Siro stadium in Milan. The Inter players wore a new strip - a white shirt with a giant red cross on it - marking the club's centenary.

Mr Kaska said he was not only seeking damages but was also appealing to Uefa to annul the match, which Inter won 3-0."


“That cross only brings one thing to mind - the symbol of the Templar Knights, stated Kaska. It made me think immediately of the bloody days of the past. While I was watching the game I felt profound grief in my soul.” Kaska told the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia that the cross on the uniform symbolised “Western racist superiority over Islam”.

He said that Inter had “manifested in the most explicit manner the superiority of one religion

UK HOSPITAL STAFF IS ENCOURAGED TO TURN MUSLIM BEDS TOWARD MECCA FIVE TIMES DAILY


I am becoming convinced that Secularism is a form of insanity. Fr John Hardon S.J. said "it is sheerest sanity to adore God. And is insanity to not recognize that except for God we wouldn’t exist..." The effects of this insanity are being played out before our very eyes in Britain. Only insanity, devoid of grace, could explain the suicidal self-loathing that causes a people to condemn its own heritage in favor of a civilization that is bent on its own domination and destruction.

FROM
dailymail: "...[N]urses are being encouraged to spend valuable time turning around the beds of Muslim patients up to five times a day - so they can face Mecca.

In a bid to promote cultural understanding, they are also expected to provide patients with running water so they can wash before prayer.

AWAITING THE POPE'S RESPONSE TO THE LETTER FROM 138 MUSLIMS


Chiesa recently published a very interesting article by Sandro Magister entitled
Why Benedict XVI Is So Cautious with the Letter of the 138 Muslims. Although there has not yet been a formal response from Pope Benedict to the letter, there have indeed been responses by Christian groups. One such response which was authored and signed by 300 scholars who were mostly Protestant is summed up by Magister:

"The message lavishes praise upon the letter of the 138. It endorses the letter's contents, or the indication of the love of God and neighbor as the "common word" between Muslims and Christians, Read More...

SAUDI KING AND HIS GIFT FOR THE POPE



We all heard how the King of Saudi Arabia visited the Pope this past week and that the Pope expressed his grief over the discrimination of Christian minorities in Muslim lands. But what most of us do not know is that the two exchanged gifts--Pope Benedict XVI gave the Saudi monarch an old painting of the Vatican while the king's gift to the pontiff was a sword.

Excerpts From
newyorksun.com: "As a gift from from a leading Islamic fundamentalist nation, a sword is about as clear a symbol of intolerance as there can be; and indeed, swords are used for public decapitations in Saudi Arabia on Fridays. The U.S. State Department's yearly human rights report cites Saudi Arabia for bigotry toward non-Muslims, including "harassment, abuse, and even killings at the hands of the Muttawa (religious police)."

DENIAL OF JESUS REQUIRED FOR PEACE WITH ISLAM


"Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two, and two against three..."
Luke 12:51

"But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven."
Matthew 10:33

The liberal media gushed at the so called "unprecedented letter of peace" from Islam to Christians. But to those who actually read it and understand the critical differences between Islam and Christianity-- the letter was at best a sham and more likely a threat to Christians. The letter began with the following damming preface which defined the terms of negotiation at the outset:

"In the Holy Qur’an, God Most High enjoins Muslims to issue the following call to Christians (and Jews—the People of the Scripture):

Say: O People of the Scripture! Come to a common word between us and you: that we shall worship none but God, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him, and that none of us shall take others for lords beside God. And if they turn away, then say: Bear witness that we are they who have surrendered (unto Him). (Aal ‘Imran 3:64)"


Rather than an offer of peace it amounts to a threat--the only way peace can be obtained is to bow down and worship Allah. All negotiations naturally cease when Christ's divinity is denied, and

A MUSLIM WHO STANDS AGAINST EURABIA AND THE ISLAMIC CULTURE OF DEATH

Magdi Allam is a muslim, but no ordinary Muslim--he is a staunch opponent of the Islamization of Europe. He is an Egyptian born columnist and vice-director of Corriere della Sera, Italy’s leading daily newspaper. He has become Italy’s most prominent critic of Islam and his views have become highly regarded in more conservative Catholic circles.

He has supported a ban against building new mosques in Italy and has sought to expose underground relationships between Italian mosques and international terrorist groups. His writings and opinions have led to numerous death threats and have necessitated him to be under constant guard.

But as recently as 2002 Allam was espousing a more liberal mindset that Islam is compatible with democracy and pluralism. But in recent years Allam has had a change of mind and heart that is reflected in his latest book entitled,
"Long Live Israel - From the Ideology of Death to the Civilization of Life: My Story", in it Allam argues that Israel represents a culture of life, while Islam’s represents a culture of death.

In a recent interview with an Israeli news agency, Allam was asked about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. His response:

EUROPE NEEDS CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES TO COUNTER THE GROWING NUMBER OF CONVERSIONS TO ISLAM

Two recent converts to Islam named Fritz and Daniel were recently arrested for plotting a terror attack and the West looks on in astonishment as to why they would choose to convert to Islam and become terrorists (see here and here).

These "nice" German young men were most likely raised in a secular environment where hedonism, free sex, and materialism was the norm. They probably never encountered true Christianity that demands a counter-cultural sacrifice, rejects worldliness and stresses eternal consequences for one's actions --because there were no Christians to tell them the truth.

After imbibing all the world had to offer they were left feeling empty and began to search. They were thirsting for truth and something to live and die for. But instead of finding the living truth Truth in Jesus Christ and His Church, they followed a lie that demanded a commitment from them while seemingly providing them with a purpose--
jihad!

Now because the West has apostatized and acquiesced on every front, we must watch as conversions to Islam grow among Europeans. These conversions are the product of institutionalized nihilism, hedonism, and secularism and are beginning to resemble a chastisement.
Below are estimated figures for the number of converts to Islam in larger European countries alongside total numbers for their Muslim populations. From Rueters:

GERMANY
The number of Muslims in Germany is estimated at 3.3 million. Around 4,000 Germans converted to Islam last year, according to German media reports quoting figures from the Central Institute Islam Archive. In 2005 there were around 1,000 German converts to Islam.

The Muslim Council of Britain estimates that there are around 2 million
