Barack Obama adviser says Sharia Law is misunderstood
The Telegraph (UK) ^ | December 29, 2010 | Andrew Gilligan

Posted on 12/29/2010 8:46:28 PM PST by La Lydia

President Barack Obama's adviser on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy by appearing on a British television show hosted by a member of an extremist group to talk about Sharia Law. Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President's Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was "oversimplified" and the majority of women around the world associate it with "gender justice".

The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party. The group believes in the non-violent destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world...

During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular "man-made law" and the West's "lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism"....

She said: "I think the reason so many women support Sharia is because they have a very different understanding of sharia than the common perception in Western media....

The video of the broadcast has now been prominently posted on the front page of Hizb ut Tahrir's website. Miss Mogahed, who was born in Egypt and moved to America at the age of five, is the first veiled Muslim woman to serve in the White House. Her appointment was seen as a sign of the Obama administration's determination to reach out to the Muslim world....

During this week's broadcast, she described her White House role as "to convey... to the President and other public officials what it is Muslims want."...

This is the kind of person, with the kind of beliefs, that Obama appoints to government panels.

So I guess those pictures of women getting stoned or honor killings are just “misunderstandings” as well...

Yes. Of course. Just more misunderstanding of poor little Muzlims. Stoning and honor killings are “gender justice.” Also: black is white, up is down. And these ravings get reported as if they had some connection with reality.

Apparently this creature thinks most women find that to be “gender justice”.

Whatever that means.

Not surprising that Obama would appoint a liar like Dalia Mogahed as an adviser.

Nonie Darwish is a lady born in Egypt with quite a different outlook on Shariah law.

An American woman born muslim in Egypt warns the West of the dangers of Radical Islam and Sharia law.

Interesting, don't you think, that she was born in Egypt but moved to the US at age 5?

Precisely how well acquainted is she with Sharia? How firm a grasp does she have on what it is like to live under that law?

Would her views be different if she had lived under Sharia her entire life, rather than having been protected by US law?

Wonder how many women in Muslim countries would trade places with her?

This is one of those occasions when the effort to manufacture common ground between radical Muslims and American leftists becomes rather strained. No matter. Any and all lies are permissible in the war against the great enemy.

President Barack Obama's adviser on Muslim affairs

Your tax dollars at work. Just curious. Does Obozo have an advisor on Christian affairs? Or Jewish affairs? Or Mormon affairs?

Why in hell are we using tax dollars for a practicing Muslim to advise Obama on Muslim affairs?

She is certainly free to pack up her duds and go swap them for full burkhas and live under Sharia law; only not here. The people who voted for “Hopey Changey” certainly opened Pandora’s Box with warning bells and lights going off all over the place. - I think he will now try to become “Reagan” incarnated in word, but not deed, except under duress in order to have another 4 yrs. to do all the damage he can.

We do not misunderstand when we see a woman stoned to death for being raped. We do not misunderstand when we see a father kill his daughter because she displeases him in some way, we do not misunderstand when we see a child lose his hand because he took something that was not his no matter how minor the item was, we do not misunderstand when we hear the Moslems say that non believers must be killed..we do not misunderstand anything about this so called religion of pure hatred.

Islam “misunderstood”?

I understand perfectly. The goal is a global caliphate. And infidels only live through the generosity of Muslims.

Muslim = good. Everybody else = bad.

Religion of peace my ass.

And quit hiding behind women and children.

Bring it, Mo.

What I understand is that the Dalia Bonaheads of the world are liking to blow themselves up in airplanes, blowing up their underwear, their shoes, laptops, hairspray, luggage, anything, box-cutters even to blow a building with the hijacked planes, killing innocents, so that must be a Sharia law. Mrs Dalia Bonahead should just stay away in some islamist country like Egypt and England where everybody likes that. Omullah does not need any advisors to tell him how to be islamist because he already is one.

We don need no stinkin sharia law here in Texas. Nor in America.

Does Sharia call for the Death Penalty for Apostasy?

Is a boy a Muslim because he was born to a Muslim Father?

If the answer to both questions are “Yes”, is 0bama subject to the Death Penalty under Sharia Law?

Is it “non-violent” when a muzzie (so-called) father shoots and kills his daughters? Or how about running them over with a car? It’s disgusting to even call it a religion. Barbaric, less than animals they all are.

In fifty years there will be holes dug from sea to shining sea here in America. Their little veiled heads and shoulders showing as “American’s” under Sharia Law will be laying down their justice.

It is time for this country to put a complete stop to any immigration of ANY MUSLIM’S coming into this country. This is not a culture, this is pure evil which is overtaking the world.

So what is it, tell us!

“promiscuity” and the “breakdown of traditional values” were what Muslims admired least about the West.”

Yeah, having 4 wives at one time and even 10000 during your lifetime is ‘traditional’

Interesting developments at work today. I Found a hidden 2page account of someone obtaining passports and listing the dates and trips to Pakistan over a period years. Including travel to embassies etc. The second page held a list of about a dozen e-mail addresses, all whose names were Muslim types.

This was deliberately hidden beneath a jewelry insert and would not have been discovered had I not sought to move the insert to another container...there it was neatly folded up just benneth it.

The state police now have it and are interested. Made for an interesting day.

Someone in Congress need to show “Backbone” like the Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard Her Statement was given Wednesday Dec 1st.

This is the second time The Prime Minister said if Muslims want Sharia Law Get out of Australia!!

Americans This is Our Country!!... We are not a Muslim Country..... If Muslims don’t like our laws then Get out of our Country!! ...... We could not make laws in Muslim Countries... Well Muslims can not bring Sharia law to our Country!!
If you can’t comply with our Laws...............GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY!!
