California Sharia “College” Set to Open (Suicide of the West Alert)

Not only are US Mosques teaching and preaching Sharia Law, now our government is foolishly allowing a Sharia “college” to open. I say foolishly because Sharia is what the enemy wants to impose on us, and allowing it to be taught here in America, is the equivalent to allowing Nazis to have their own US schools during WWII. Not only do we have to end all Muslim immigration, we also need to ban Sharia Law. Then arrest and deport if possible, any Muslim who calls for Sharia. They are to be looked upon as enemies of the state, just as Nazis were.

California school aims to be country’s first accredited Muslim college

As controversy swirls around a proposed Islamic center near New York City’s ground zero and a handful of other mosque projects around the country, students will arrive this week at a California school that is aiming to become the country’s first accredited Muslim college.

Zaytuna College hopes to the train a generation of Islamic clerics and professionals in a Western Islamic tradition that school officials say is ill understood by many of the foreign-born imams currently working in the United States.

“There’s a triumphalist view that’s not conducive to the type of religion we need to see,” said Hamza Yusuf, chairman of Zaytuna’s trustees board, describing many foreign-born imams. “American Muslims can help change a lot of the Muslim world to create the potential for conviviality.”

The school, located in Berkeley, will offer just two degrees – Arabic, and a combined Islamic law and theology major – when it opens its doors Monday to the 15 students in its first freshmen class. The class includes eight women and seven men.

But its leaders say they plan to expand to around 150 students in the school’s first four years and that they want to eventually train young people for careers in U.S. law, journalism, academia, and other fields.

First year tuition is $11,000 plus room and board, according to the school.

The school has yet to generate much controversy, but Yusuf, a co-founder who is the public face of the school, said he expects such criticism will come.

“I think the American people that are criticizing the ground zero mosque… are also criticizing us,” he told CNN’s Don Lemon on Sunday. “It’s par for the course right now. Islam is an acceptable target. To be prejudicial towards Islam is politically correct.”

But experts on American Islam say that the strain of modernist, mystical Islam espoused by Yusuf, which draws on Sufi traditions, might be more controversial among conservative Muslims. SNIP

Though Zaytuna has received little attention outside the Muslim world, many American Muslims have been watching the project closely.

“It is hugely significant,” said Eboo Patel, a prominent Muslim activist who focuses on youth organizing. “Part of what America is about is that people from diverse background build on traditions that are inspired by their heritage but that serve the common good, in the same way that Catholic universities or Jewish hospitals do.”

“The big story right now is the integration of Muslims into America,” he said, “and the establishment of Zaytuna is an important milestone in that arc.”

Eboo (one of Obama’s Islamic con men), Sharia is not about Muslims integrating. In fact is is quite the opposite.

Sharia is dangerous. It must be examined thoroughly. It is not a religion but a totalitarian government disguised as a religion. Sharia has no place in American law and should never have a place.

Will there be financial aid for this theology, and not all theology degrees?

For the UNknowing, the UNaware and the wary,

When the founding fathers thought of America, their little baby, the last thing they wanted was an invasive force to stifle, smother it, and then overwhelm it and kill it.

Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a “religion”, it is a cult. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is it’s own government, a economic system (which includes funding new mosque construction), its judicial...all wrapped up in the word sharia. This is inclusive of its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent ...and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is a invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.

This is not just a “religion”, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Korans Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes.
Islam is political, and it’s goal is to supplant and replace. Globally.

When the founding fathers thought of America, their little baby, the last thing they wanted was an invasive force to stifle, smother it, and then overwhelm it and kill it.

The sooner America learns this , the better. Some know and many do not, but it is a threat to everything America knows.

Obama? Obama and Company? Should be tried for treason in this issue for promoting the establishment of a foreign government on our soils. He is doing nothing to protect America as per his oath. Also, as a Muslim, he knows this, he know far better, he knows sharia, but is looking to deceive America.

I believe Islam a Tyrannical Totalitarian Political System inclusive of their own established legal perspectives (Sharia), and militant enforcement devices (Jihadists).

Islam is a foreign government period, therefore Islam’s aggression within our own Political System in effort to subjugate us, and destroy our system, and replace it with theirs is nothing less than an act of war, and must be addressed that way.

Islam IS NOT A RELIGION, as Religion is only a portion of Islam.

Islam within the United States of America should be denied, BECAUSE IT IS NOT SOLELY A RELIGION, AND ITS INTENT AS AN ENTITY IS TO FORCE AMERICANS TO SUCCUMB TO THEIR WILL, IOW TO DEFEAT US.

IT’S WAR, AND WE MUST FACE THE FACT, AND ACT ACCORDINGLY.

We don’t need to “investigate” Sharia law. We know what it is. We don’t need another commission to study Sharia law, we know what it is. I say again.....give me one politician that is running for office that will stand up and say “No Sharia law in the United States, no way, now how.” I will vote for him/her.

To make an attack this sensitive the facts are the most important weapons. The left throws around accusations, the right throws facts. Bury them with irrefutable facts about their totalitarian government.

It is the people of the United States that need to make this decision and that decision must follow our Constitution. Sharia law totally violates our Constitution. That’s why I say that if the SCOTUS does not enforce the Constitution, they need to be removed from office.

Here’s my question: WHERE is the ACLU on all this? They can’t wait for Christianity to raise its head just a little. Yet Islam is, in its heavy-handed way, attempting to take over everywhere and not a word from our “keepers of the secular flame”.

hmmmm...could it be that they share the vision of the destruction of this country with the rags? I would want to remind them- BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

What about that “seperation of church and state” principle the Left always preaches? Also irritating, any college that hasn’t severed a traditional Christian affiliation is ridiculed. And ANY resistance to New Left academic ideology and the Campus Compact movement threatens an institution’s accredidation.

It may be a two-edged sword. It may be useful as a way to keep track of the extremists among the Muslims and may prove useful later when the hammer comes down.

That’s true; any of these students who is not a terrorist will probably graduate as one.

OK....I have to ask.....Where in the Constitution does it refer to “Seperation of Church and State?” Every time this is brought up, this question needs to be asked.

“Sharia has no place in American law and should never have a place.”

Totally agree, in spite of all the recent taqiyya, sharia is NOT compatible with our Constitution.

On Tuesday morning in the at about 3:15am A 5 alarm fire was reported at Zaytuna College.

Fire Dept Crews arrived but found the building totally engulfed in flames.

Reports are that a groups of pissed off Americans were seen in the area just prior to the fire.

I’m refering to the irony—hypocracy of Liberal commentators who only mention the concept when discussing policitally incorrect causes or religious groups (namely Christian). In this particular case, involving the Sharia movement in America in which religious social control is openly advocated, we hear nothing from the Left (regarding this principle they infer—say again, infer...did I say “infer”?—from the Constitution and always make such a big deal about)

Despite Zaytuna College's spokesman's happy-face statements about it's Sharia law curriculum and the usual lame whining about Muslims being victims of prejudice, an Islamic-centered college offering degrees in Sharia Law, which is what this really is, may be legal but as we all know, Islam is a barbaric, totalitarian political/social/religious system. It's adherents will never integrate because to do so would be antithetical to Islam's triumphal concept that seeks to conquer, not assimilate into societies they will always consider inferior to Islam. That is why this kind of institution is bad news for America.

I fear our mostly apathetic population and feckless political 'leaders' are willfully blind to the danger our easy acceptance of such institutions brings to our nation. I'm concerned that we are allowing freedoms enemy to thrive within our midst. Much of that is PC-based, as we saw in the Fort Hood massacre that allowed a clearly hostile and fanatical Muslim doctor to rant against America and our way of life while his military superiors looked the other way because they didn't wish to appear 'bigoted'.

The Islamists know this and use it against us, along with our constitutional freedoms. See how quickly they whipped out the 'freedom of religion' card as a shield against the overwhelming public disapproval of the 'Ground Zero mosque', as if not building a huge mosque at that exact location is somehow preventing N.Y.C. Muslims from practicing their religion. Total BS that far too many politicians echo, demonstrating how barbaric Islamic Sharia law can gain a foothold in a country where, by any measure, it is in direct opposition to our constitution.
