New York Times: America Should Embrace Sharia Law
godfatherpolitics.com ^ | godfatherpolitics.com

Posted on 09/05/2011 9:56:23 AM PDT by Iam1ru1-2

What?! Below is an excerpt from the New York Times. No wonder they are losing readers. With thinking like this, we might as well hand the United States of America over to the Middle East. Letting Muslims and people of other cults practice voluntary ecclesiastical law within their communities is one thing. Muslims wants Shariah law to be the law of the land. State governments are getting smart and shoring up their laws to prevent the courts from forcing Sharia law on American citizens. The New York Times should implement Sharia law upon its employees before letting them write articles like this.

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 country’s successful history of religious tolerance and assimilation, and creates a dangerous divide between America and its fastest-growing religious minority.

Once all the hos working down at the NYT start wearing burqas and keeping their mouths shut and faces hidden, I’ll think about it.

Well, if we just kill them and not put them in prison - we’d save a lot of money. There are no misdemeanors in their law.

You steal you lose your hand, anything else you die.

It is a crime deterrent and cost savings measure.

If people freely agree to sharia arbitration, that’s fine with me. Orthodox Jews have marriage courts and kosher slaughter supervision.

The thing we don’t need is more Muslims - more immigrants, more prison converts.

Also, was this an editorial or a straight news article? And is the author listed?

You don’t understand,if sharia law is instituted by voluntary compliance, it will spread to places where it’s not accepted, and eventually everyone in America will be under it’s strict enforcement.

I am not allowed to edit the title to an article. If you’re confused by the title then go to the link and complain to the website that posted it. I am not a member of the NYT so I can’t even see the complete article on their website. That’s why I posted the article that was posted at Godfather Politics.

Not if we don’t get more Muslims!

But since the federal government has an open door immigration policy, I understand states trying to do whatever they can. And it sends a Muslims not welcome message, thought I don’t know if that’s effective since they band together so much and live in a perpetually offended state anyway.

But it does seem to me that free association means you can freely choose your arbitration, rather than going to court. If you are a woman, you can choose arbitration where your word is half that of a man’s if you want. I suppose those who do tend to have their witnesses lined up.

I think America could and might embrace *parts* of Sharia Law.

Like beheading terrorist Muslims. Fine and dandy in Sharia Law, but totally a no-go under US law. Hanging is also cool in Sharia, without endless federal judges refusing to permit it because they personally don’t like it, or any other form of capital punishment, and they think they know better, so can legislate from the bench.

So, yep, we could have refilled Gitmo a few dozen times, held military trials, then promptly hung the terrorists we put in there, to make room for more.

And sea piracy? No problem. Even from the early days of our Republic, federal judges wanted the US Navy to spend six months to bring African pirates back to the US for trial. It would be so much easier if our ships’ Captains had the authority to hang pirates on their own ships, as the British used to do.

But, other than that, Sharia Law is pretty much barbaric ca-ca, used to justify the whims of tribal goombas in 4th world nations.

American democracy and assimilation is directly contrary to Shariah.

B.S. Straw man argument. Supporters of the bill KNOW Sharia is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Any one who supports it is supporting sedition.

If we ever do embrace Shariah Law, it will be liberals who suffer, not conservatives. They're the ones who steal, do drugs, and screw around. One year of strict Shariah and there'd be no liberal women left, and all the liberal men would have only one hand left.

Hm....

Muslim Brotherhoods step by step Plans for the Islamification of America and Shariah Law:

Note Phase Three.

(This document offers a chilling operational insight into the mindset, planning, and vision of the Islamic movement in North America.)

“Phase One: Phase of discreet and secret establishment of leadership.

“Phase Two: Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities (It greatly succeeded in implementing this stage). It also succeeded in achieving a great deal of its important goals, such as infiltrating various sectors of the Government. Gaining religious institutions and embracing senior scholars. Gaining public support and sympathy. Establishing a shadow government (secret) within the Government.

“Phase Three:..... ‘Escalation phase’.... prior to conflict and confrontation with the rulers, through utilizing mass media. Currently in progress.

“Phase Four: Open public confrontation with the Government through exercising the political pressure approach. It is aggressively implementing the above-mentioned approach. Training on the use of weapons domestically and overseas in anticipation of zero-hour. It has noticeable activities in this regard.

“Phase Five: Seizing power to establish their Islamic Nation under which all parties and Islamic groups are united.”

NYT is on the wrong playing field: Firstly Islam is NOT a religion but a socio-legal-system with a false “religious” component.

Sharia is a legal system with brutal physical injury and death as the only available punishments for not obeying the make-it-up-as-you-go-along “religious” component as created and applied without uniformity by any local Moslem senior cleric (Mullah) with little commonality except the most vicious, sadistic and misogynist punishments. Also NYC Mayor Bloomberg has become an ardent Islamist - reflected in the New York Times - since he and his organizations have invested HEAVILY in the Middle East and have fortunes to lose if Arab nations take offense at him and his city in the name of Islam. Bloomberg has also supported approval of providing funds (millions) from local government for the building of the mosque at Ground Zero! With Islamist Dhimmis like him and Moslems like Oba-Hussein in charge, we are being destroyed from within. AND from outside. They need to go!

This will lead to legalizing polygamy, beating wives, divorce without legal obligations, sex with boys and domesticated animals, killing of homosexuals, halal food in public schools and universities, new holidays and blameless honor killings.

Now that the left has gotten homosexual marriage rolling along, polygamy is the next agenda. Hollywood is already trivializing it.

I would think only a minority of "New York Jews" are supporting the New York Slimes by reading it or advertising in it. Its circulation has been in a tailspin, and you can bet that at least some of those who deserted it are Jewish, and are well aware of the Slimes' anti-Israel bias, which has gone on for decades.

The decline of the Slimes is far from only a Jewish thing, and far from only a New York thing. It's a well deserved overall American rejection of a newspaper which once boasted that it contained "all the news that's fit to print", simply because that newspaper went from printing hard news to printing leftist political propaganda thinly disguised as news.

I see it as a crusade for the U. S. Constitution. BTW, nice touch by the NYT to use the term "crusade" to whip their acolytes into a more intense frenzy. If only they could have worked "Tea Party" into the piece. Maybe they did, who knows?

The New York Times is 'tolerant' of any group that hates white middle class Christian Americans. If Muslims were raping their first borns and throwing them in boiling oil, the Times would support them as long as their existence gave the finger to middle class conservative Americans. They really do hate us that much...

The NY Times found a Kapo. Did this Kapo, who teached at Yale, ever speak up when Orthodox Jews at Yale wanted to live outside of the Sodom and Gomorrahs they call dorms? No.
He isn't even a multiculturalist who wants Jews to practice in peace. He is a leftist who wants special rules for Muslims and for Jews to take it form the left and Muslims.
