Sharia Law; The Center For Security Policy Gets It Right
the last few months much has been said about the rise of such new (for
Americans) ideas as: “Sharia-compliant
finance” and “Sharia
Muslims”. The mainstream press has either failed to report
accurately on Sharia
Law, or purposely ignores its impact on America .
Many Americans are thus confused. Is Sharia Law a threat or not?
Who is hurt if Muslims decide their disputes in a Sharia Court?
about contract law between Muslims and non-Muslims? Can, and
should, the United States of America have a parallel legal system
Islam? If so, how will it work? Will Muslims and
non-Muslims be treated equally? What are the rights of Muslim
for Security Policy (CSP) has
produced a stunning report on Sharia Law. The CSP report is important for
reveals how Sharia Law has been used to settle cases in American
courts in the past.
reveals how Sharia Law is being implemented through a well thought out
of “death by a thousand cuts”.
reveals the impact of Sharia Law on the every day functioning of our
system and why this cannot be allowed to continue.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is strongly
of Sharia Law, deceptively broad
brushing Sharia Law as just another benign
legal system for
the adherents of Islam. But is it?
Consider that under
Islam, Muslim women have half the word as a Muslim man; i.e., it takes two Muslim
women’s testimony to equal that of one Muslim man. This is
bad enough, yet how many
female or male Christians, Jews, Buddhists, or Sikhs would have to
testify in a
Sharia court to equal the word of one Muslim male? Can non-Muslims even
in a Sharia court? One growing Sharia compliant phenomenon in Muslim
countries is for a Muslim husband to declare he is divorced from his
sending a text message through a cell
phone, yet a woman cannot
the same. How long will it be before this technique for divorce is
attempted in America? How does this
square with our Constitutional right of equal protection under the
law? Do the Islamic-Supremacists of CAIR condone this unfair practice?
There are many other issues that come up as a result of Sharia Law but
the main issue that the CSP report conveys is that those who support
Sharia Law are not acting in the best interests of anyone, not least of
Muslims came to the United States to get away from
this misogynistic, barbaric, and unequal legal system that serves no
other purpose than to elevate Muslim men to a position they couldn’t
possibly attain by peaceful means. To paint Sharia Law as
law” is to ignore reality. It is a legal system using the cover of
religion to impose restrictions on people that are laughable at best
and deadly serious to those who adhere to it.
There is no healthy
median or redeeming qualities to Sharia Law. It must be kept out of our
legal system and public life as there is no room for both the
Constitution and Sharia Law.
We ignore the threat at our peril.
