Phoenix Imam Tells Muslims To Disregard U.S. Laws
HumanEvents/JihadWatch ^ | 11/19/08 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 11/19/2008 6:11:16 PM PST by Sammy67

“A Muslim must try his best to abide by the rulings of Sharia [Islamic law] whenever possible as much as he can. He should not allow himself to be liable to those western laws that contradict the clear-cut Islamic rulings.” The rulings of Sharia, mind you, include stoning for adultery, amputation of the hand for theft, and institutionalized discrimination against women and non-Muslims. But the speaker was not some fanatic Wahhabi in Saudi Arabia; it was the Phoenix-based imam Omar Shahin, president of the North American Imams Foundation. This is probably one reason why, as The Arizona Republic reported Monday, the FBI has stepped up scrutiny of Shahin and other Muslim leaders in Phoenix.

Omar Shahin has been in the news before. He is the spokesman for a group of six imams who sued US Airways after being removed from a flight in 2006 when passengers and crewmembers reported that they were behaving suspiciously. The imams were handcuffed and later interrogated, then released with no charges, whereupon Shahin led a news conference to condemn prejudice against Muslims. All six imams later sued the

Why disobey when you can CHANGETM the law? Make Shariah the law of the land, so everybody will be happy.

There really is something worse than perverse when someone comes to this country for it’s benefits then wants to ignore their responsibilities.

“There is no such thing as moderate Islam or moderate Muslim. These so called moderates are either ignorant of Islam or hypocrites who try to pull the wool over your eyes. Do not listen to them. Do not encourage their deceptive talk. Accept nothing short of the total eradication of Islam. This disease must be wiped out. There can’t be a moderate Islam just as there is no such thing as healthy disease or sensible insanity. Islam is extreme. To fight Islamic extremism you have to fight Islam. There is no middle ground. Either you eradicate Islam or Islam will eradicate you. The choice is yours.”

"Worse than perverse" pretty well describes the adherents of that so-called "religion," doesn't it?

What is worse than perverse?
Perverted, for starters;

And so we disregard their humans rights. Fair trade I think. It may not be much longer, but for the mean time, it’s still our country.

Oh, I'd say they are free to disregard our laws in favor of their own. However, they do so at their own peril. As long as they know they will be held accountable and punished for breaking our laws, fine.

Every day people disregard our laws, probably number one on the list is speeding while driving. So if these guys want to disregard our laws, great. The more that do and get arrested, the more we have off the streets.

Isn’t it about time homeland security started rounding up these people? I think that all mosques should have a federal monitor for security. Hell, we put marshals on our planes, why not put someone in those mosques to make sure no subversives are plotting the overthrow of our government. I mean, if you had a group of people whose stated objective is the domination of the world with their law and “religion” I would make damn sure I knew what they were saying and thinking in those “meeting places”. Better yet, just declare Islam a hostile nation and kick them the hell out of the country.

Well, we are behind compared to the UK and Europe, even Canada, in terms of getting Sharia noticed, enacted. I didn’t figure Phoenix, for some reason.

Muslims are seriously overplaying the use of the word “stereotyping”. And this can backfire on them, because most of what they call “stereotyping” is part of their religion.

The way to catch them on this is to demand they obey US law no matter what Sharia law says. They will object to obeying US law, so then you can say, “By your own words, it is not stereotypical that Muslims disobey US laws. Therefore it is the truth, and all Muslims can and should be punished for doing this, because they are not victims, but criminals for violating US laws or elevating Sharia above US laws.”

Did he get paid for that?

I know & that makes me angry too. These muslims need to stay in their homeland where their sharia law is the normal way of life.

It wasn’t lost on me that it was Phoenix. I don’t think that McCain threw it, but I do wonder if the fact that he lost emboldened those who wish to ‘speak out’. And I doubt we’ll hear similar comments from Chicago.

Where are the gay activists? They can not wait to storm Christian churches, man handle old ladies, or protest in front of Mormon churches. They know that the Muslims will not put up with that kind of outrage. This is a clear example of the respect that is given to force. The gay force inflicted on law abiding people results in extortion of the non-violent. The preceived violent nature of Muslims protects them from extortion.

From McLame's own lips.

Guess you need to do some reading.
