A Wad of Crap: CAIR's Pormotion of Shari'ah On March 15. 2012, Bare Naked Islam published a fund raising solicitation from CAIR. Most of the text from that post is reproduced below, including the headline (linked to the original post) and one bold red parenthetical comment from BNI.The letter solicits money to finance CAIR's campaign to defeat proposed legislation to proscribe foreign legal systems in our courts. I have highlighted several phrases which I intend to address below.
effort to block introduction
Democratic systems of government involve legislation introduced, debated and voted on by members of an elected legislature. If bills are not introduced, they can not be debated and voted up or down. By uttering & publishing the phrase which serves as the header for this paragraph, CAIR admits that it stands opposed to democratic self government, preferring theocratic authoritarianism.Effort to prevent legislation from being introduced implies a campaign of intimidation & threat against legislators. What could be more anti-democratic? Efforts to defeat legislation are legitimate; efforts to prevent it from being introduced are not.
The statutes proposed in Florida and Michigan do not mention Shari'ah. They proscribe foreign legal systems to the extent that those abridge the Constitutional rights of litigants. By asserting that such laws are anti-Shari'ah, CAIR admits the fact that Shari'ah conflicts with the rights, privileges & immunities afforded to citizens as secured by the Constitution. If Shari'ah did not abrogate Constitutional rights, there would be no issue to dispute.
While several organizations and individuals are speaking out about the threat posed by Shari'ah, and promoting state and federal legislation to exclude it from our courts, I do not see any evidence of a unified or well financed campaign.
How much money is involved, and what is its source? How is it being spent? Are there numerous billboards, radio and television advertising or full page newspaper & magazine advertisements? Does the campaign involve paid professional lobbyists?
Islam can only be demonic if its deity is a demon, in which case it is demonic and its critics are merely exposing that fact to public scrutiny. Islam's deity is depicted by its founder, in Malik's Muwatta 46.1.2 as creating people "for the fire".
In the Noble Qur'an, Surah Al-Anfal 67, Allah demands "great slaughter" as Moe's price of admission to his celestial bordello.
Allah arbitrarily created a group of people predestined for eternal damnation and demands genocide as the price of admission to his celestial bordello. If that is not demonic, what would be?
marginalize American Muslims
Are Catholics marginalized by excluding their cannon law from our courts? Are Jews marginalized by excluding theirs? It seems that Muslims need to choose between America and Islam because the two are incompatible.
donors and resources
The implication is that the anti-Shari'ah campaign is well financed by wealthy interests with unlimited funds. Where is the evidence of that? CAIR asserts that they do not have wealthy donors and resources; did the Saudi Princes who provided their original funding withdrawn their support, leaving CAIR to fend for itself?The sentence from which the previous four headings were taken implies that there is something wrong with having donors & resources; in a letter soliciting funds. The hypocrisy is palpable.
Exactly how do those "well financed" campaigners exploit and promote ignorance? How does publishing a book about Shari'ah (Shariah The Threat to America) exploit and promote ignorance? How does publishing a well documented report about fifty trial & appellate cases arising in the last three decades exploit and promote ignorance? Do blog posts quoting and linking to codifications of Shari'ah also exploit and promote ignorance?
The founders of this nation observed and experienced tyranny and resolved that their posterity should be free from it if possible. In modern times we observe amputations, decapitations and hangings in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and Iran. We do not want that here. We experienced horrific terrorist attacks and observe others almost daily.CAIR and other liars would have us believe that fear of Islam is vain. But Moe deliberately cultivated a reputation for barbarian rapine. I direct doubters & dissenters to Noble Qur'an, Surah Al-Hashr 13. Click the link and read the context, then turn to Surah Al-Anfal 57 if any doubt remains.
Moe attributed his military success to terror inflicted on his victims.
Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220 ...I have been made victorious with terror...
Brig. S.K. Malik wrote a strategic training manual for the army of Pakistan. It was not meant for our eyes. This quote comes from page 59 of The Qur'anic Concept of War.
a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into
the opponent's heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be
achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet
and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon
the enemy; it is me decision we wish to impose upon him.
We have nothing to fear but fear itself; yeah, right.
For prime examples of religious hatred, see the Qur'an. Muslims recite Surah Al-Fatihah at least twice in each of the five compulsory prayers. When they recite it, they are reminding Allah why he wants to burn us.
Allah, Moe and the Muslims curse us and call us the worst of living creatures.
cruel and unusual punishments
How does Shari'ah square with the 8th Amendment? Reliance of the Traveller has a clue for you. If you quit Islam, they kill you. How does that square with the first Amdt?
When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.
In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.
