The increasing hostility from Muslims toward non-Muslims is further evidence that Americans should begin to view Islam in a light that is beyond religion. Sharia Law has become the political enforcement to religious laws derived from the Quran, Hadith and Sira. The word “politics” means the hands of the State receive a religious mandate to utilize the power of the State to infiltrate on the very lives of individuals providing an Orwellian Big Brother mentality on a local community level. This Islamic Orwellianism ends personal liberty for all actions of society must submit to the cult of Islam. This means repression executed on individuals that do not submit to Islam.
In Western governments this Orwellian Sharia Law has not invaded the secular-political arm – yet. Western governments in Europe are actually allowing Sharia Law to be practiced as a rule of law where Islam dominates the community. This gives rise to assault on non-Muslims when Muslims utilize Sharia as an excuse to vandalize, dehumanize, physically attack, rape or even murder. The last three I mentioned – physical attack, rape and murder – might be exacted by a Muslim on a fellow Muslim or a non-Muslim alike. It would depend on what portion of Sharia is broken by a Muslim and the multitudinous calls to protect the honor of Islam against the non-Muslim which excuse reprehensible acts in the name of Islam.
European nations are slowly allowing this de-Westernizing of their culture. Americans must prevent allowing the insidiousness of Islamic Sharia from gaining any acceptance as a force of the rule of law in America. Sharia means the termination of American citizens’ rights as defined by the Constitution’s First Amendment.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
How does Sharia Law contradict the First Amendment:
Sharia is based on the principles found in the Koran and other Islamic religious/political texts. There are no common principles between American law and Sharia.
Under Sharia law:
o There is no freedom of religion
o There is no freedom of speech
o There is no freedom of thought
o There is no freedom of artistic expression
o There is no freedom of the press
o There is no equality of peoples—a non-Muslim, a Kafir, is never equal to a Muslim
o There is no equal protection under Sharia for different classes of people. Justice is dualistic, with one set of laws for Muslim males and different laws for women and non-Muslims.
o There are no equal rights for women
o Women can be beaten
o A non-Muslim cannot bear arms
o There is no democracy, since democracy means that a non-Muslim is equal to a Muslim
o Our Constitution is a man-made document of ignorance, jahiliyah, that must submit to Sharia
o Non-Muslims are dhimmis, third-class citizens
o All governments must be ruled by Sharia law
o Unlike common law, Sharia is not interpretive, nor can it be changed
o There is no Golden Rule (Source: Sharia Law for the Non-Muslim; Bill Warner; PDF Document published by Center for the Study of Political Islam © 2010; Introduction p. 3)
Before American Leftists and Muslim-Americans demand the First Amendment right of Religious Freedom, adherents of Islam MUST deal with the political nature built into Islam that contradicts the rest of the First Amendment (which includes Religious Freedom for non-Muslims). If Islam cannot transform theologically to eschew the political mandates of Sharia, then at worst Islam needs to be defined as a political ideology and at best Sharia must be defined as a political ideology. Political ideologies can still be a part of First Amendment rights; however when the ideology seeks to act extra-constitutionally or is defiant of the U.S. Constitution the groups acting subversively can be monitored for illegal activities and prosecuted if the law is broken.
American Nazis can hate Jews in America, but they cannot kill or prevent the civil rights of Jews in America. The Ku Klux Klan can hate African-Americans, Jews and Catholics, but they cannot kill or prevent their civil rights. Violent Communists like Bill Ayers can write about the hatred and the overthrow of the United States, but they cannot exact acts of violence, terrorism or rebellion against the U.S. government under the rule of law of the U.S. Constitution. Neither can Muslims act against their women, honor kill their daughters, sisters and wife (polygamous wives are illegal in America); persecute Jews, Christians and other non-Muslim religions; kill the kafir; rape the kafir women and Muslims cannot do any other thing that is protected by the U.S. Constitution or subvert the U.S. Constitution because Islam demands resistance to non-Muslim practices.
The next time a Muslim tries to tell you that Islam is a religion of peace, the person is self-deceived or a deceiving liar. You need to educate yourself on the teachings of Islam. Even though there may be a truth that a majority of Muslims are peaceful, the earliest remembrances of Mohammed’s words that became written down as the Quran are ONLY partially peaceful. If a Muslim tells you Quranic violence is understood out of context much like the Old Testament might be accused of violence out of context to today’s practice, know that it is a misleading accusation by Muslims and that Quranic violence is totally in context with the intent of its message to spread Islam establishing supremacy over non-Muslims to the point of humiliating them, converting them or killing them. That is absolutely NOT the context of the Old Testament.
The Biblical imagery of the Hebrew tribes conquering Canaan’s Land under Divine direction was a bloody enterprise. The directive by God to conquer and exterminate was based on the indigenous Canaanites and the various other tribal peoples such as Amorites, Philistines, Moabites, Amalekites, Hittites, Midianites, and Hivites and so on. These Canaan people were has religious and moral practices were reprehensible. Their sins had come to full course in that God deemed them beyond saving. This is much like in the days of Noah in which the sins of humanity had become collectively so evil that God wiped out humanity saving eight humans including Noah, Noah’s wife, their sons and their sons’ wives. The salvation of the eight by returning from the flood of water became a type of Christ’s Redemption announced to all. The new Believer is baptized or immersed in water with the sins of the old nature and resurrecting from out of immersion with their sins washed away to begin a new life journey with a new creation nature.
The slaughter ordered by God upon sinful people beyond redemption to be repopulated by the twelve tribes of the Israel nation is far different than the Quranic edict to spread Islam first by telling non-Muslims of the mercy of Allah followed by brutal conquest if Allah and his prophet Mohammed are rejected. The Israel conquest was localized to an area of land promised to the descendants of Abraham. The Muslim conquest is an ongoing path until the whole earth’s population submits to the will of Allah with violent repression if necessary.
Don’t be fooled by Muslim apologists who vainly compare Islam’s early bloody empire acquired by brutal conquest to a localized land conquest promised to the descendents of Abraham through the bloodline of Isaac that essentially can be traced down to the son of Mary and the Son of God Jesus the Christ. Salvation is of the Jews because the son of Promise to Abraham would eventually lead to the birth of Jesus who has the equal nature of man and of God in simultaneous union. Mohammed’s lineage is NOT of the child of Promise Isaac. If anything Mohammed’s lineage MIGHT be traced to Abraham and the Egyptian slave of Sarah known as Hagar which gave birth to Ishmael. Ishmael the son of a slave was cast out of Abraham’s camp because the son of promise was born to the free woman and wife of Abraham – Sarah. Salvation is not of the Ishmaelites. You need to know your Islam. Mohammed’s words rewrote the timeless Scripture of the Old Testament by transferring Ishmael as the promised child even though Ishmael’s mother was a slave and not a free woman. In essence Mohammed replaced Isaac with Ishmael in order to make the accusation that Jews and Christians warped the true word of God that due to Mohammed only came into existence in the 7th century AD. The Pentateuch (the Torah to the Jews) was written circa 1400 BC. Even if one buys into the secular humanist theories of the JEPD Document writing of the Pentateuch of 400 BC; that is still over a thousand years before Mohammed’s companions collated their collective memories into a written Quran.
ACT for America’s Guy Rodgers lays out very desirable reasons for Americans to get involved on a grassroots level to combat the portions of Islam that contradict American and so also American culture.

A recent column by Jeffrey Kuhner in The Washington Times reported the following:
· “The Vatican estimates that from Egypt to Iran there are just 17 million Christians left.” Why? Persecution by Muslims.
· “Nearly two-thirds of the 500,000 Christians in Baghdad have fled or been killed.” Why? Persecution by Muslims.
Other reports that have come across my desk in recent weeks report increased Islamic terror activity in Sweden. Thousands of Hindus have fled Pakistan’s Sind province due to increased persecution by Muslims.
While the church bombing in Egypt received some worldwide press, none of these developments I refer to above have received much worldwide attention.
Meanwhile, after Pakistani’s Punjab governor Salman Taseer was assassinated because he opposed Pakistan’s anti-blasphemy laws, over 500 Muslim clerics defended the actions of the murderer. What’s more, when Pope Benedict XVI urged Pakistan to repeal these laws, the leader of the nation’s most powerful Islamic party declared “The Pope’s statement is an insult to Muslims across the world.”
Crime perpetrated by Muslims against non-Muslims throughout Europe is accelerating. Terrorist threats are on the rise. Counterterrorism forces in Great Britain are tracking some 30,000 potential Islamic terrorist suspects in that country alone. Jews are fleeing Europe in response to increased persecution.
All of this is occurring against the backdrop of decades of appeasement and accommodation extended by European governments to militant Muslims.
Lebanon’s government was recently toppled by Hezbollah. Now, for all practical purposes, Hezbollah is in control of Lebanon.
Throughout history Islamic jihad has ebbed and flowed – but it has never completely ended. Today we are witnessing an emboldened and empowered worldwide jihad the likes of which has not been seen since before the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.
In the face of this reality Rep. Bennie Thompson criticizes Rep. Peter King’s plan for hearings on Muslim radicalization, foolishly arguing that Muslim radicalization shouldn’t be singled out when we have mass shootings like the one recently in Tucson.
Organizations like CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, insist that terror and violence around the world, perpetrated by Muslims, has nothing to do with any doctrines of Islam. This in spite of the fact that since 9/11 over 17,000 incidents of Islamic terror have been documented worldwide. CAIR’s contentions would be laughable if this weren’t so tragic.
Over the past two years we saw more homegrown terrorists arrested than in the previous eight years since 9/11. Yet the Obama administration can’t even bring itself to use terms like “jihad” and “radical Islam” in its assessment of this worldwide threat.
The good news is the 2010 elections elevated Members of Congress like Peter King to chairmanships of key committees. Many of the new freshman class are more aware of the threat of radical Islam – and more willing to define it as such. More Americans than ever have heard of sharia law.
While issues like jobs, the economy, and exploding federal deficits dominate the headlines and are the top concerns of most Americans, we who understand the seriousness of the threat of rising worldwide jihad must continue to be the voices of warning to America. We must be the modern-day Paul Revere’s, who sound the alarm while most people don’t see what’s coming. We must connect the dots so that people understand why we are threatened by both cultural and violent jihad.
This year we have many big plans to ensure this happens. Our TV program premieres February 5th at 2:30 PM Eastern Time on Family Net and on February 6th at 4:00 PM Eastern Time on ALN.
Our National Conference and Legislative Briefing will take place in Washington, DC, June 22 – 24.
We will conduct several Citizens in Action training conferences.
We will host webcast training sessions for our chapter leaders.
Early next month we will announce a new initiative: Open the Qur’an Day.
I believe that, in spite of rising worldwide jihad, the tide is turning. Leaders and citizens in Europe are pushing back. ACT! For America doubled its membership in 2010. More and more Americans are rejecting the foolishness of political correctness.
This is not a year to lose hope. This is a year to build on what we have accomplished thus far.
Yours for a safe and free America,
Learn Islam to STOP Islam
