Unlike typical religions, Islam offers not only a strict set of guidelines for living your life, but also Sharia law, which is a rigid authoritarian system of government. Let’s take a look at some of the tenants of Sharia law and how it is applied throughout the Middle East.
• Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand (above).
• Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death.
• Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death.
• Criticizing or denying Allah, the god of Islam is punishable by death.
• A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death.
• A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
• A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
• A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
• A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
• A man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a woman needs her husband’s consent to divorce.
• A divorced wife loses custody of all children over 6 years of age or when they exceed it.
• Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
• A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s). (Needs 4 male witnesses instead).
• A woman’s testimony in court, allowed in property cases, carries ½ the weight of a man’s.
• A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits.
• A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (upheaval).
• A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
• Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah – i.e., be “Halal”.
• Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.
Sharia law is not just a belief system held in a bygone era, it is practiced today in may Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia. Sharia courts, or councils as they are referred to in Western nations, have already began popping up in the UK Nigel Farage mentioned there are 80 practicing Sharia courts operating around the UK. Although the officials in the UK state that citizens can ask a Sharia council to make a decision on a personal matter, their decision must align with UK law. Given the extreme nature of Sharia, how long will it be until it conjoins itself with UK law and the two become indistinguishable?
The point being, Sharia law is completely contradictory to every Western nation’s beliefs regarding human freedom, the separation of church and state and free speech.
It may be argued that most Americanized Muslims (if there is such a thing) don’t believe in institution Sharia law and have adopted our Constitutional law as their own. Yet a survey performed by the Center for Security Policy find that the majority of Muslims living in America support of the idea of having Sharia courts set up in our country and them having the option to use their verdicts as law:
According to the just-released survey of Muslims, a majority (51%) agreed that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah.” When that question was put to the broader U.S. population, the overwhelming majority held that shariah should not displace the U.S. Constitution (86% to 2%).
More than half (51%) of U.S. Muslims polled also believe either that they should have the choice of American or shariah courts, or that they should have their own tribunals to apply shariah. Only 39% of those polled said that Muslims in the U.S. should be subject to American courts.
After reading the above bullet points on the exact edicts of Sharia, would you like to be governed under such strict and brutal laws?
The findings of the Center for Security Policy’s survey of Muslims in America suggests that we have a serious problem. The Pew Research Center estimates that the number of Muslims in the United States was 2.75 million in 2011, and growing at a rate of 80-90 thousand a year. If those estimates are accurate, the United States would have approximately 3 million Muslims today. That would translate into roughly 300,000 Muslims living in the United States who believe that shariah is “The Muslim God Allah’s law that Muslims must follow and impose worldwide by Jihad.”
So that translates to 300,000 Muslims in America who support the institution of the barbaric and authoritative Sharia law system.
How does this translate into our government officials? The Muslim Brotherhood’s official English website their purpose
The Brotherhood’s English language website describes the principles of the Muslim Brotherhood as including the introduction of the Islamic Sharia law as “the basis for controlling the affairs of state and society” and secondly, work to unify “Islamic countries and states, mainly among the Arab states, and liberating them from foreign imperialism”
Now lets take a look at these fellows that support the Muslim Brotherhood and who Obama has willing allowed to enter our government’s upper echelons:
Why would our administration want individuals who support Sharia and the Muslim Brotherhood inducted into high positions of power in our government, when their views and values are so opposite our own?
That’s a good question, and one we could speculate in depth, but the point remains that this sort of behavior is the equivalent of allows Nazi part members into our government during World War II.
The Nazi movement during the 1930s was a political one. It became the dominate political party, and only party eventually, under Adolf Hitler and ruled Germany with an iron fist. Although not a religion, its members were required to adhere to a strict set of guidelines and any deviation would be dealt with swiftly. Not unlike Sharia, the Nazi movement established a system of control over its populace which led to the deaths of millions in its cause to dominate.
Would any reasonable person actually advocate allowing Nazi’s into our government during World War II? Today’s liberals might. It’s a sad fact to state, I can totally imagine today’s social justice warriors advocating inclusion of Nazi part members into America’s systems, justifying this move by saying that not all Nazi’s are bad. Well, if someone was a Nazi party member during WWII, then they would have in some way supported Hitler’s vision for their country, which included conquering the world and instituting a German empire.
Sure, there are plenty of Muslims who don’t support the tenants of Sharia, but they would only be considered apostates and not true Muslims by those who do support Sharia.
Is it really worth taking the risk at this troubled time in our history to allow those who support the Muslim Brotherhood, and Sharia law, into high ranking government positions where they can institute their extreme belief system behind the curtains and slowly undermine any sense of free thought? Should we just turn a blind eye and give everyone the benefit of the doubt?
The logical answer to these questions should be a resounding NO, yet when emotions and feelings are mixed in, decisions will be made that will negatively impact our country for decades to come.
Think this could never happen in our country and voters would never allow Sharia law to be instituted? Watch this video of Hillary Clinton supporters endorsing Sharia law in America:
