Islam, as we know, is part of America.Islam can not be a part of America. Islam is, by its own intrinsic nature, permanently alienated. In the Islamic world view, only Allah has the right to rule. Any government that rules by man made law instead of Shari'ah is unjust and must be removed by Jihad, if necessary. Moe prophesied that Jesus Christ will rule by the Qur'an when he returns.
Islam is not compatible with democracy. Allah said "It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision." [33:36] Allah and his Messenger (or Caliph ) make all the decisions; Joe Camel has no choice in the matter. Islam is theocratic autocracy, the polar opposite of democracy.
One of those values is the freedom to practice your religion -- a right that is enshrined in the First Amendment of the Constitution. Nashala Hearn, who joins us from Muskogee, Oklahoma, took a stand for that right at an early age. When her school district told her that she couldn't wear the hijab, she protested that it was a part of her religion. The Department of Justice stood behind her, and she won her right to practice her faith.The practice of Islam entails more than hijab, salat, zakat, hajj & iman. Islam is not complete without Jihad, which is mandatory, not an optional extra. Jihad is defined in Islamic law as making war on non-Muslims. [Reliance of the Traveller, O9.0.] Jihad is a communal obligation, binding upon Muslims in every year. [O9.1]
The annual obligation to perform Jihad is confirmed by fiqh. Observe what Al-Shafi-i said about it. "The least that the imam must do is that he allow no year to pass without having organised a military expedition by himself, or by his raiding parties, according to the Muslims' interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse."
If Muslims have a right to practice their religion, then they have a right to kill you, rape your widow, enslave your orphans and seize your property. If there is a right to practice Islam, we have no rights.
Islam divides the world into Dar al-Islam, where Allah's writ runs and Dar al-Harb, where Allah's writ does not run. Peace is when Dar al-Harb (the house of war) is conquered and engulfed by Dar al-Islam. I suggest that you read O9.8 & O9.9 of Reliance of the Traveller. So much for the pursuit of peace.
They all contain truths. Among those truths are the pursuit of peace and the dignity of all human beings. That must always form the basis upon which we find common ground.
Islam recognizes the dignity of Muslims, not all human beings. Pagans & Atheists are to be converted, enslaved or killed, people with scriptural religions are to be subjugated and extorted, surviving as sub-humans living at sufferance. One of Islam's codified oral traditions has Moe declaring that our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims until we become Muslims. [Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387.]
Together, we have a responsibility to foster engagement grounded in mutual interest and mutual respect.There is no mutual interest between prey and predator. Respect is earned, Islam has not earned it. Respect is reciprocal, Islam gives none, see the citation immediately above: our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims.
So tonight, we celebrate a great religion, and its commitment to justice and progress.What is Islam's greatness? Judaism gave us monotheism. Christianity gave us hope of salvation. Islam gives us predestination & predation. Islam's 'greatness', which it seeks to restore, is the Caliphate which enslaved nearly half the world at its peak.
What commitment to justice and progress? Shari'ah prescribes hudud, including corporal punishment. Proving rape requires four male witnesses who observed penetration. Rape victims are punished. The testimony of two women is required to equal that of one man.
Ten days prior to the eighth anniversary of the Accursed Abomination, our recently elected President celebrated the month in which the damnable book was "revealed"; the book whose sanctification of Jihad motivated the nineteen murderers of three thousand of our fellows. He referred to the war cult which sponsored the attack a "great religion", praising its "commitment to peace" & justice.
Allahu skata!! Camel dung in the desert. Islam: predatory war cult. Moe: profiteering pirate, pretender to prophecy, pederast, lecher & murderer. Obama: traitor. You fools who elected him should burn your voter registration cards and hang your heads in shame. No words can express my disgust.
