The Ground Zero mosque Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, knows how to play to liberal sentiment, I’ll give him that. Of course, that makes him a liar.
Rauf ‘s goal seems to be to portray Sharia Law as some innocent system that Americans wrongfully hate. He claims there’s a Sharia court in Israel, which Israeli law allegedly supports. “Why, then, is the very idea of Sharia so consistently vilified in our country?” he asks. (via Jihad Watch).
He says, “The religious courts belong to the Israeli court system. The Israeli government enforces their decisions. This is called legal pluralism — and Israelis inherit it from the Ottoman Empire.”
Not so fast! In reality, this line is perfectly designed to play on liberal ignorance. Yes, there are “Sharia courts” in Israel, designed to deal with private arbitration, if the parties chose to use the court.
Israel is not beholden to Sharia Law, and the criminal matters of Israel still go to the real courts. No one in Israel imposes Sharia on anyone.
Yet, wherever this system is established in Western countries our liberals let them run amok, well past their bounds. So, the Sharia courts start meddling in criminal matters that impact everyone.
In Britain, some courts even try to shield Muslim men who abuse their wives from criminal courts and real consequences for their illegal (not to mention despicable) behavior.
The truth is this: Muslims do not just want Sharia courts for their own private disputes or private legal ceremonies, like marriage. Instead, they want to use Sharia courts as a way to avoid obeying Western law. This is just one facet of their refusal to assimilate into — or even just respect — our culture and way of life.
Liberals have this rose-colored view of Sharia law, assuming the courts will simply hand over Muslims who break American laws. Or, worse yet, liberals are foolish enough to think that Muslims should live by their own laws. Is the rule of law our society worked so hard to enshrine really that easy for liberals to toss away?
Is the rule of law our society worked so hard to enshrine really that easy for liberals to toss away? Do they not understand that the rule of law goes a long way to protecting our freedom?
With Imams like Rauf whispering lies in their ear, I guess not. His goal — and the goal of the Sharia courts — is to destroy our culture. You heard him say it right in that quote. He called America “our country.” Oh no, Raul, this isn’t your country, and We the People won’t let it become yours.
Do you think the liberals will ever see Sharia law for what it is? Please share the story on Facebook and tell us what you think because we want to hear YOUR voice!
