While all eyes this week are on London's royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, my eyes were on an opening statement from the U.K.'s Daily Mail Reporter: "Women who do not wear headscarves are being threatened with violence and even death by Islamic extremists intent on imposing shariah law on parts of Britain."
Rich Dart, a former BBC worker who now attends Muslim rallies, spoke for many about how they favor Islamic law's integration in Western politics, when he was heard to say: "When the Taliban defeat the allies we will establish shariah law and take the fight to the enemy."
Of course, we're told such views represent an extreme minority. And yet just a couple months ago, the Los Angeles Times (Dec. 6, 2010) contested that thread in an article, "Majority of Muslims want Islam in politics." Based upon a global poll taken in seven countries with large Muslim populations, the Times reported, "According to the survey, majorities in Pakistan, Egypt, Jordan and Nigeria would favor changing current laws to allow stoning as a punishment for adultery, hand amputation for theft and death for those who convert from Islam to another religion. About 85 percent of Pakistani Muslims said they would support a law segregating men and women in the workplace."
But we shouldn't believe such sentiment could ever reach the shores of America, right? Or has it already penetrated our land and even our governmental seats?
I'll say what I said at the outset of the last column: It is no mystery that radical Islamists intend to use the freedoms in our Constitution to expand the influence of Shariah law. But, still, too many Americans don't know or understand how it threatens the very fabrics of our republic.

Obama and Holder siding with CAIR and curtailing investigations into Muslim crimes surely need to be included in Chuck’s “Top 5”!
They have demographics on their side. :(
Yes, they do. Add to that the general drift of Americans to the political left. The Reagan landslide of 1984 was the last of its type in favor of the conservative movement.
We on FR often like to believe in a conservative resurgency in America... but the demographic facts don't bear it out. IMO, the best hope is a breakup into two, maybe three entities.
