Why We Must Resist the Vision of a World United under Islam
Islam is not just a religion; it is a political-judicial-cultural ideology as defined by the quran, sira and hadith as implemented under Islamic sharia law. Islam makes political aims a religious duty. Nearly 1400 years of history are witness to Islam’s expansion and progress toward its stated goal to replace or subjugate anything non-Islamic; to spread Islam across the globe. Wherever Islam thrives, a state within a state develops and the existing government and unbelieving (kafir, infidel) culture is rejected. Islamic minorities grow in a host country until it can conquer, by political or violent means, replacing the established government with sharia.
Historically, Islam was spread by the sword held by Allah’s warriors on horseback. Today, this modern conquest begins with immigration and enlarging populations followed by a demand for deferential treatment of Islam in the host country, including insistence on religious accommodations, judicial separateness, and general cultural and educational non-integration. Imagined affronts to Islam are claimed and redress demanded. Islam claims the superiority of moral high ground. Through intimidation it is made to appear that to offend a Muslim is a crime.
Sharia, heavily influenced by 7th century Arab culture, denies freedom of speech, religion, expression and action and rejects equality between men and women, thereby violating human rights. Sharia has no “Golden Rule” to treat individuals equally. Instead Sharia segregates people into two classes of people: Muslims and non-Muslims. Muslims are supreme and non-Muslims are inferior, holding no equal rights under Islam. Muslim-Muslim relations are completely separate from Muslim-kafir relations, where deceit is sanctioned and mistreatment unpunished.
No matter the temperament of individual Muslims, the Islamic community as a whole, the “ummah,” drives the process of Islamization (codification of Islamic supremacy via sharia law) in every country where Islam thrives. There is no room to list the thousands of violent acts of Muslims against non-Muslims in the name of Islam. Across the globe violence and political upheaval are associated with increasing Muslim populations.
The US is a secular, representative democracy thoughtfully crafted by our founders, with its government powers defined in the Constitution and separated into three branches filled by the President, Congress and Courts. Sharia law is irreconcilably in conflict with the Constitution and our government. Islam denies much of what we accept as part of America. We cannot extend our tolerance to Islam’s intolerance. Islam and Sharia are grave dangers to the United States of America.
No one has the right to not be offended. Our freedoms allow us to share our opinions without inciting violence. We must choose liberty, equality and secularism, over the doctrine of submission, supremacism and dictatorial theocracy.
