I hope this thread is not serious. If anything Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and will eclipse Christianity within the coming decades. Most of the videos you posted are from pro-Christian groups which presented no facts or backing. Islam is growing and is even popular with young African American males as well.
Sharia Law is never coming to America, talk about fear mongering

Sharia Canada & America
Like some of its European counterparts, the government of Canada for years has been tacitly condoning the application of Sharia law among Canada's Muslim immigrants by sending multiple welfare checks to polygamous Muslim men who raise multiple families in Canada.
Recently, however, the Muslim community of Ontario, Canada's immigrant-rich province, sought to have the Sharia law officially and legally recognized by the government. After a fierce debate, the Premier of Ontario refused to recognize Sharia, at least for now.
But with Canada's Muslim population doubling in the last 10 years, the demographic trends favor a greater role for Sharia law in Canada, where giving out Bibles is still legal but quoting Bible verses that condemn sins (e.g., homosexuality) is already a punishable hate crime.
How about Sharia in America?
At 9 million, the Muslim population in the United States is still relatively small - about the size of the Hispanic population 25 years ago - but it is growing 6 times faster than the national rate.
And in areas with large Muslim communities, Sharia is already being felt. In Minnesota, for example, Sharia's prohibition against alcohol led the government agency managing the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to propose different color top lights for taxis driven by Muslim drivers so that they can refuse passengers who land with (duty-free) alcohol.
In 2007, Koran for the first time was used to swear into office a new United States Congressman. Carefully positioned away from terrorism, Islam in America is portrayed as a religion of peace.
TORONTO -- Muslims in the GTA are monitoring the case of a Toronto woman whose bid to sponsor a new husband to Canada was nixed because a religious "talaq" divorce of her first spouse is not recognized in Ontario.
Hoda Hussein Hazimeh claims a "talaq" divorce with ex-husband Ali Hammoud conducted under Sharia law and registered in Lebanon should be recognized here so she can sponsor her second husband, Hafez Farhat.
But federal court disagreed and ruled against her.
A talaq divorce under Sharia law can be performed on the telephone. In it, the couple repeat "I divorce you" three times in front of community leaders and witnesses.
"This decision can have a huge impact on those who practise Sharia law or religious marriages," said Hazimeh's lawyer, Edward Corrigan.
"Many people will be impacted if these divorces are not recognized in Canada."
Federal immigration officials have been getting tough on those practising talaq marriages and divorces, Corrigan said.
"They (immigration) have been challenging religious divorces much more vigorously than in the past," Corrigan said.
"We have had many clients who have had religious divorces recognized by immigration."
The decision may be taken to the federal appeal court, Corrigan said.
Hazimeh's attempt to sponsor Farhat was turned down by a visa officer, who ruled her divorce was not valid.
The divorce was accepted by an immigration and refugee board, but a successful appeal was filed by federal immigration officials.
Then federal court Justice James Russell ruled the talaq divorce is not recognized in Canada.
"A talaq divorce has no legal effect in Canada but may have legal effect in jurisdictions which operate under Sharia law," Russell said.
"At the time of the ceremony, (Hazimeh) was a citizen in Canada for less than a month and was not eligible to obtain a legal divorce in Ontario.
"Only the Ontario superior court has jurisdiction to grant divorces in the province of Ontario."
Omar Farouk, president of the International Muslim Organizaton, said members are monitoring the case.
"Religious divorces are fairly common in the community," Farouk said. "But in Canada, the law of the land overcomes Sharia law."

Sharia Law in Canada
In 1991, Ontario was looking for ways to ease the burdens of a backlogged court system. So the province changed its Arbitration Act to allow "faith-based arbitration" – a system where Muslims, Jews, Catholics and members of other faiths could use the guiding principles of their religions to settle family disputes such as divorce, custody and inheritances outside the court system.
It was voluntary – both parties (a husband and wife) had to agree to go through the process. But once they did, the decisions rendered by the tribunal were binding.
The Ontario government, in its review of the Arbitration Act, released a report on December 20, 2004, conducted by former attorney general Marion Boyd. Among her 46 recommendations was that:
◦The Arbitration Act should continue to allow disputes to be arbitrated using religious law, if the safeguards currently prescribed and recommended by this review are observed.
In her report, Boyd noted that some "participants in the Review fear that the use of arbitration is the beginning of a process whose end goal is a separate political identity for Muslims in Canada, that has not been the experience of other groups who use arbitration." Earlier in the year, the Islamic Institute of Civil Justice said it wanted to set up its own faith-based arbitration panels under the Arbitration Act, based on Sharia law.
Concerns about establishing Sharia law in a Canada.
The Boyd proposal ran into opposition from women's groups, legal organizations and the Muslim Canadian Congress, which all warned that the 1,400-year-old Sharia law does not view women as equal to men.
The National Association of Women and the Law, the Canadian Council of Muslim Women, and the National Organization of Immigrant and Visible Minority Women of Canada argued that under Sharia law, men and women are not treated equally. They argued that women fare far worse in divorce, child custody and inheritance matters under Sharia law. For instance, a woman can only inherit half as much as a man can. If a divorced woman remarries, custody of the children from her previous marriage may revert to the children's father.
Sharia Law is not recognized in Canada.
Attempts to set up Sharia courts in Canada in 2005 were abandoned after protests. The Jewish community and the Catholic community did not want Muslims introducing Sharia into Canada, so they accepted the decision to ban all religious arbitration in Ontario, including their own respective tribunals.
In May 2005, the Quebec National Assembly unanimously supported a motion to block the use of Sharia law in Quebec courts.
