Adherence to the tenets of Sharia Law is simply incompatible with a free, open, republican society based on the rule of law. This is not a rant. It gives me no pleasure whatsoever to say this. Quite the opposite. It is, however, a fact.
Islam isn’t in America, or any Western Christian nation for that matter, to be equal to any other faith. It pushes to become dominant. CAIR leaders, Imams and other influential Muslims have flatly stated that they believe the Quran should be the highest authority in America, Islam the only accepted religion on earth. Some have expressed their “contempt for the United States.”
Ihsan Bagby, of CAIR’s Washington, D.C., office has stated that Muslims “can never be full citizens of this country, because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country,” according to Middle East scholar Daniel Pipes. Institutions and ideologies are precisely the things that define America…and Americans.
There are well over 3 million Muslims currently living in the U.S., with more than 250,000 new Muslim residents arriving here each year, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. A May, 2015, poll commissioned by the Center for Security Policy found that the majority of American Muslims wanted their own Sharia courts outside of the legal system founded, sanctioned and guided by the Constitution of the United States of America. Nearly a quarter of those surveyed admitted that they believed the use of violent jihad was justified in establishing Sharia. That’s three-quarters of a million people… and counting!
The American people know that there must be limits on immigration, that policies must be put in place and enforced that prevent people bent on our ultimate destruction from entering the country. Our politicians, however, may not be wise enough or courageous enough to see to the will of the people.
If they are not, there will eventually be no America left in which any future refugees could seek asylum.
