My friend and colleague Karen Lugo has written a great article in National Review on the PR move by the Islamic Circle of North America to promote Sharia law in America. She also refers to the so-called "quiet Muslims", who perhaps, don't want to see Sharia here in the US.
I heartily concur with Lugo that it is time for Muslims who came here to enjoy freedom unencumbered by religious dictates to speak up and take their communities back from the stealth jihadists who are in charge. The plain fact is that organizations like CAIR, ICNA, ISNA, MPAC and MSA are stealth jihadists who support terrorist organizations abroad like Hamas and Hizbollah.
Now they are engaged in a major PR campaign to convince Americans that Sharia is perfectly compatible with our Constitution. They talk about justice, equal rights, and compassion in describing what is the legal system for Islamic law. Keep in mind that Islam is more than a religion. It is also a political ideology designed to control every aspect of a person's life. Sharia law is what has brought us beheadings, stonings of women for adultery, so-called "honor-killings", and second class status for non-Muslims in Muslim-dominated societies and nations. The above American organizations and countless imams in the mosques of America have a long-range vision of America, the West, and the entire world becoming one big Islamic caliphate under sharia law. Will it happen in our lifetimes? Surely not. However, if you think it can't happen in the West, watch the events in Europe. Massive immigration, no assimilation, high birth rates, and changing demographics are transforming Europe before our very eyes.
And this guy Zulfiqar Ali Shah, who talks about John Locke? Here is some background on this friendly fellow from Frontpage Magazine and Militant Islam Monitor:
John Locke, indeed!
But what about American Muslims who came here to escape the stifling oppression in their homelands? What do they think? Unfortunately, most do not speak out. There are reasons for their silence,. They don't want to be castigated from their community. They don't want to put their lives in jeopardy.
The result of this silence is that they are increasingly under the control of leadership that is strangling their own personal freedoms-right here in America. By their silence, they are making themselves irrelevant.
