Recently, all fourteen Democrat Florida State Senators voted to allow the introduction of Sharia Law into the Florida court system. Fortunately, they are nowhere near a majority (they lost 24 to 14); and the measure died at the hands of true Americans. The proposed law (SB386) was titled “Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases.”
A report on this vote, which included a brief outline of what living under Sharia law means, drew some comments that indicate a serious lack of understanding of the dangers of Sharia law. Several expressed skepticism that “this is what the Democrats actually voted for,” and others attacked anyone who believed the brief list of horrors as “right wing morons.”
These comments set the stage for this first in a series of special reports on Sharia Law: Sharia and freedom of speech.
The political arm of Islam in America is the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR, whose very name betrays the fact that Muslims don’t think of themselves as Americans, has a long history of whining to their allies in the Democrat Party (Muslims vote overwhelmingly Democrat), asking them to silence those who make even the mildest critical comments about the so-called “Religion of Peace.”
Recently, CAIR demanded the Republican Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma apologize for saying that Barack Obama favors Islamists over Judeo-Christian Americans.
This is a strong statement, but it is exactly the type of protected speech our Founding Fathers had in mind when they enshrined Freedom of Speech into the Bill of Rights. The examples of these attempted and successful infringements on Freedom of Speech go on. Another that serves this purpose is the fact that Islamists used American police to arrest American citizens peacefully demonstrating outside an Islamist gathering in Dearborn, Michigan.
This steady pressure on our rights is part of what Islamists do whenever they gain enough strength in a given area. Minneapolis is now well on its way to being a Sharia-run city. Islamist cab drivers are refusing passengers they believe are carrying alcohol or are bringing a dog with them – even a Seeing Eye Dog. They have gotten away with turning down rooftop ads for Cleveland’s Gay games as well.
A look across the Atlantic at the sad condition of England gives us an idea of the ultimate goal of the Islamists in stage one of their destruction of America.
A patriotic English politician was recently arrested for quoting Winston Churchill on the slovenly habits of Muslims and how they breed destruction of society wherever they “rule or live.” The arrest came after a single Muslim complained to a cowardly British government that is already too far gone to be helped.
For a look at what American patriots could be demanding in the near future, consider this first demand from patriotic Brits: “Introduce a US style First Amendment guaranteeing free speech.”
Those who say Islam and its Sharia law are not a threat to America are either self-delusional fools or lying supporters of Sharia themselves. Either way, they must be pushed aside as we fight for our liberties.
