Skip to comments.Donít Fear Islamic Law in America (NY Slimes Mega-Barf)
Posted on 09/03/2011 1:28:47 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
MORE than a dozen American states are considering outlawing aspects of Shariah law. Some of these efforts would curtail Muslims from settling disputes over dietary laws and marriage through religious arbitration, while others would go even further in stigmatizing Islamic life: a bill recently passed by the Tennessee General Assembly equates Shariah with a set of rules that promote the destruction of the national existence of the United States.
Supporters of these bills contend that such measures are needed to protect the country against homegrown terrorism and safeguard its Judeo-Christian values. The Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has said that Shariah is a mortal threat to the survival of freedom in the United States and in the world as we know it.
This is exactly wrong. The crusade against Shariah undermines American democracy, ignores our countrys successful history of religious tolerance and assimilation, and creates a dangerous divide between America and its fastest-growing religious minority.
The suggestion that Shariah threatens American security is disturbingly reminiscent of the accusation, in 19th-century Europe, that Jewish religious law was seditious. In 1807, Napoleon convened an assembly of rabbinic authorities to address the question of whether Jewish law prevented Jews from being loyal citizens of the republic. (They said that it did not.)

Aren’t these liberals the first to cry about church and state. This scum would betray this country at the drop of a hat.
We have our own laws. Live under our laws or leave.
F*** shariah law !
I fail to understand,How this vermin brings up the VERY EVIL that will try to poison our way of life,Then gets away with it?
Obviously law has to be changed from time to time simply to deal with new technologies, or previously unforeseen conditions ~ yet, just before the Turks conquered all the Arabic and other Moslems it was decided to CLOSE THE BOOK.
This problem creates eternal strife ~ and it is only through great difficulty that a modern state can survive in the Islamic orbit ~ there are constant upheavals among the populations in such places simply because their legislature, or king's majlis, or other authority changes a law ~ e.g. to drive on the right and use electric stop lights.
No modern person thinks such things are worthy of revolution, but Moslems do.
The only way to deal with shariah law is to BAN IT and severely punish those who advocate its use.
“marriage through religious arbitration”
Does that include the 14-year old girls and virgin inspections? How about the requirement for multiple witnesses to a rape? Or beheading for infidelity? I hardly think that this is comparable to Jewish/Catholic “laws”, where if you don’t like it - you can just leave the church.
That newspaper wouldn’t be of good enough quality to be used as Bin Laden’s toilet paper - if, indeed, he had actually ever used toilet paper.
Giving a whole new paradigm to the term, “heads will role.”
Get ready for the polygamy as a religious freedom argument.
It’s happening in Europe.
given the author’s last name, his head will be one of the first to roll.
that is an invalid moral equivalence. The ultimate goal of islam is world domination. Judaism does not have that as its goal.
>> The crusade against Shariah undermines American democracy,
Stern, you asshole, Christians responded to the crusades. Now go off to Syria where you belong you ignorant fool.
Just get the NYT staff to “convert” and they can take turns tossing each other out the windows!
With Jews like this guy, the Hebrew religion is headed for extinction!
TWANLOC at work.
"Every 'moderate' Muslim is a potential terrorist. The belief in Islam is like a tank of gasoline. It looks innocuous, until it meets the fire. For a 'moderate' Muslim to become a murderous jihadist, all it takes is a spark of faith.
It is time to put an end to the charade of moderate Islam. There is no such thing as moderate Muslim. Muslims are either jihadists or dormant jihadists moderate, they are not."
Ali Sini is head of Faith Freedom International. FFI is a grassroots worldwide movement of ex-Muslims and all those who are concerned about the rise of the Islamic threat.
'Remembering 9/11' on the Geographic Channel. Sunday: 'Inside 9/11: Zero Hour'- EXCELLENT.
This moving video is the most viewed of any of the 9/11 videos and is now in the Smithsonian.
Be sure to read (at the site) Anatomy Of The Attack and the moving essay,That Day by Steve Golding, a New Yorker who lived through it.
So when we have Sharia no-go zones, will there be a Planned Parenthood “clinic” in it?
Chris Christie slams fearmongering over Sharia law
Aug 4, 2011
New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie defended his decision to nominate a Muslim judge to the state Superior Court against conservative critics who warned that the new judge will implement Sharia law. The notoriously blunt-spoken Christie calling their fears crap and crazy.
