Incremental Islam Part 4: “Extreme Punishments”

Wikimedia CommonsCC BY-SA 4.0

Our Second Amendment guarantees that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” There are no exclusions; the amendment applies to all ages, genders, races and religions. Now let us see how sharia rulings on weaponry compare with those of our Constitution.

The Reliance of the Traveller mentions, on at least two occasions, the prohibition against non-Muslims owning weapons. In section k1.2(f), it states: “It is a condition that someone buying weapons be of a people who are not at war with Muslims.” Since it is an obligatory goal of Islam to establish a global caliphate, there is perpetual tension (whether overt or not) between Muslim and non-Muslim territories. In section w52.1, lines 189-193 includes the prohibition of sales of “weapons to non-Muslims who will use them against us.”

Additionally, Mark Durie, in his book The Third Choice, writes that dhimmis (non-Muslim subjects of the Islamic state) “could not bear weapons….. and they were forbidden from raising a hand against a Muslim.”

Our Eighth Amendment guarantees “no cruel and unusual punishments,” while Sharia, on the other hand, sanctions: amputations (o14.1), crucifixions (p22.1), stonings (o12.2, o12.6), lashings (o12.2) and other horrific punishments. And the reasons for these extreme Islamic punishments vary considerably from that which is punishable under our U.S. laws:

  • Gays are killed simply for being gay (p17.3);
  • Apostates are killed for leaving Islam (o8.1);
  • Non-Muslims may be killed without penalty to the Muslim murderer (o1.2);
  • Children may be killed by their parents or grandparents for bringing dishonor to the family (o1.2);
  • Amputations are punishment for theft (o14.1);
  • Stonings or lashings are punishment for fornication (o12.2); and on it goes.

Incremental Islam Part 3: The Reins of Power

Our 1st amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press …”

In Islam, though, sharia imposes the death penalty for those who leave Islam. (ROT o8.1). Islam is growing – not because it is popular, but because leaving it is hazardous to one’s health.

The Islamic blasphemy laws are a huge abridgement of the right to free speech. (ROT o8.7) Anything that would offend a Muslim must not be said. Of course, this has found practical application in UN Res. 16/18 (of which Hillary and Obama were proponents) and more.

As for freedom of the press, the Danish Muhammad cartoons sparked riots and killings around the Islamic world, Molly Norris had to “disappear” thanks to drawing Muhammad and there was the assassination attempt on Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer for their “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, TX. Does anyone have the right not to be offended?

CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) coerced the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, military and police into removing ‘offensive words’ (“Islam,” “Muslim,” “Muslim Brotherhood,” “Islamic terrorism,” “jihad,” and “sharia law”) from training materials, confounding attempts to identify terrorists and prevent attacks. And CAIR continues to ensure that events featuring truth-tellers such as Robert Spencer are shut down.

We know who holds the reins of power – it is whomever we are not allowed to criticize; so, speak the truth loudly and proudly now or forever hold your peace.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press …”

George Washington said “If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”

On 9/11 Mohamed Atta, the main hijacker told the passengers “Just be quiet and you’ll be okay…”

Sharia imposes the death penalty for those who leave Islam. (ROT o8.1). Islam is growing – not because it’s popular, but because leaving it is hazardous to your health.

The blasphemy laws are a huge abridgement of the right to free speech. (ROT o8.7) Anything that would offend a Muslim must not be said. Of course, this has found practical application in UN Res. 16/18 and more.

In terms of freedom of the press, the Danish Muhammad cartoons excused riots and killings around the Islamic world, Molly Norris had to “disappear” as the result of drawing Muhammad and there was the assassination attempt on Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer for their “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, TX.

We can slowly give away our freedoms, being over-accommodating to the ungrateful, shrill demands of a foreign culture. Should we be politically correct when people are being killed? No one has the right not to be offended.

CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) coerced the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, military and police in removing ‘offensive words’ ‘Islam, Muslim, Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic terrorism, jihad, and Sharia law’ from training materials making it hard to identify terrorists and prevent attacks under the guise of ‘sensitivity training’. Political correctness truly endangers our lives.

Do we want healthy critical thought and free expression?  If you fear being called racist or an Islamophobe you will lack the integrity and courage to keep America safe and free. It is your duty to report suspicious situations.

Freedom is not a Given

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
― Ronald Reagan

What is Sharia?

Sharia is Islamic law with strict rules for every aspect of life from brushing your teeth to beating your wife. Sharia is religious and also political. It’s the basis for every demand that Muslims make on our society. The 9/11 World Trade Center attack was done in adherence to jihad as found in Sharia Law. Sharia is more about power than faith. Sharia annihilates civilizations.

Incremental Islam Part 1: What Non-Muslims Need to Know

Mohammed lived in Saudi Arabia in the 600’s AD as a trader who claimed divine revelation from the angel Gabriel which was recorded in the Koran.

When we think of religion we think of the Golden Rule, tolerance, love and foregiveness. Sharia law micro-manages daily life, from how to brush your teeth to how to treat women, gays and non-Muslims. When Muslims say that Islam is a religion of peace, they mean there will be peace when the whole world lives under Sharia law with no freedom of religion or freedom of speech.

Islam is a political, judicial and militaristic system made victorious by military expansion. The Islamic calendar begins with Mohammad’s migration to Medina, Saudi Arabia. He was a peaceful preacher in Mecca, then in Medina he attacked trade caravans and killed many Jewish tribes, fulfilling his holy obligation to make Islam the only religion in the world. Mohammed called jihad the best action a Muslim can perform. “I have been ordered to wage war against mankind until they accept that there is no god but Allah and that they believe that I am His prophet…”

Muslims divide humanity into the house of Islam, and the house of war. Allah allows violence for Islam to become dominant. The Koran says that Muslims are the ‘best of created beings’ while unbelievers are the ‘most vile creatures’ removing empathy for non-Muslims.

Islam can never be questioned or criticized. Leaving Islam, which is similar to treason may be punishable by death.

Article VI: The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land

This blog will be about how Islamic Sharia law conflicts with the U.S. Constitution.

Article VI: The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, that judges in every state shall be bound by; not to be compromised or superseded by foreign laws. We are to maintain a single judiciary, without Sharia courts.

Shariah: “There is only one law which ought to be followed, and that is the Sharia.” (Seyed Qutb); “Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a State on the basis of its own ideology and program.” (Seyed Abul A’ala Maududi)

Clearly a devout Muslim cannot respect our U.S. Constitution, the basis of our land.
