- To show you how completely different Muslims think: "We
are not terrorists. We are jihadists, and jihad is not terrorism,"
said Ramy ZamZam, one of the five Muslim-Americans arrested in Pakistan
in December on suspicion of plotting acts of terrorism on the United States.
- Writer Randall Parker remarked, "Muslims are nature's
way of telling us that multiculturalism is a really bad idea."
- Instead of Western culture where women enjoy equal rights
to men, gays can become mayors of cities, women come and go from the house
as they please, and women enjoy personal choices of dress and friends--what
if America changed its entire cultural paradigm to inculcate Islamic Sharia
- What if America disallowed women's rights, women's voting,
women's education, women's choice of a husband, women's rights to dress
as they pleased, women's choice of sexual orientation, women's rights to
drive and women's rights to run for public office? What if the United
States of America allowed female genital mutilation, honor killings, stoning
of women for adultery and beheadings of women for not obeying their husbands?
What if that cultural paradigm mandated everyone kneeling on a prayer
rug to bow to Mecca five times a day?
- Most Americans lack any understanding of the concepts
or practices of Islam. Out of sight, out of mind! If it's not happening
in my community, it's not happening. Honor killings of wives and daughters!
If it's happening in Texas, New York or Arizona-it's not happening in
my state. I am safe! Wrong!
- If Americans saw Detroit today, walked the streets, watched
the mosques by the dozens, listened the to Arabic jabber all around them,
watched thousands bowing to Mecca five times a day, heard the Islamic music
calls to worship over the streets of Detroit-they would just about suffer
a heart attack at what's happening to their country. Americans cannot
and do not comprehend the ramifications of the quickly growing Muslim population
within the United States.
- In an excellent article, "Joys of Islam" by
Muslim and author Nonie Darwish, she brings home the realities of Islam
as it pertains to individual lives. For Westerners that expect logical
actions, moral decisions and a sense of balance within their societies-Islam
staggers anyone's sense of right and wrong while turning it upside down.
If you wonder why Islamic societies remain poor, illiterate or subjected
by dictators-you find it within the theocracy and barbaric practices of
Islam. However, for Muslims, it seems normal because they continue their
religious practices as if they still lived in the 6th century. They don't
know anything else.
- "In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child
as young as one year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. Consummating
the marriage by nine," said Darwish. "The dowry is given to the
family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase
of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy. Even though a
woman is abused she cannot obtain a divorce. To prove rape, the woman must
have (4) male witnesses. Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned
to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the
right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family.
Husbands can beat their wives 'at will' and he does not have to say why
he has beaten her. The husband is permitted to have (4 wives) and a temporary
wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion."
- In the Western World (America) Muslim men are starting
to demand Sharia Law so the wife cannot obtain a divorce and he can have
full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many
of our sisters and daughters attending American Universities are now marrying
Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children to the Sharia Law.
- Ripping The West In Two
- Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical
Islamists is to impose Sharia Law on the world, ripping Western law and
liberty in two. She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment:
The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law. Born in Cairo, Darwish
spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before immigrating to America
- Darwish warns about creeping Sharia Law. She says, "Islamists
are working to impose Sharia on the world. If that happens, Western civilization
will be destroyed. Westerners generally assume all religions encourage
a respect for the dignity of each individual. Islamic law (Sharia) teaches
that non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed in this world. Peace and
prosperity for one's children is not as important as assuring that Islamic
law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world."
- Darwish continued, "While Westerners tend to think
that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Sharia teaches
two systems of ethics - one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building
on tribal practices of the seventh century, Sharia encourages the side
of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others.
- "While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious
people developing a personal understanding of and relationship with God,
Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could
be interpreted as criticism."
- Americans blind as to Islamic outcome in USA
- "Unfortunately, Islamic scholars conclude that those
who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed,"
said Darwish. "While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious
tolerance over time, petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely
intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere,"
- Again, for any readers of this series, if you might submit
new stories in order to round out the realities of Islam in America or
any other country, please write me at <mailto:email@example.com>firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will include them in future columns.
- In many ways, I feel sorry for Muslims in America because
they face daunting obstacles for adapting to 21st century America. And,
our citizens will not tolerate Islam when it begins to change our culture
as you see happening in Detroit, Michigan or Freemont, California. We'll
see either violence or increasing separation and fracturing of our cities
- Whether it is Islamic or Mexican culture transforming
America out of itself and into other cultural paradigms, a staggering price
will be paid, especially for women. If you look at the American Indians,
they lost their land, their cultures, their languages, their religions
and their freedoms. I see their fate becoming our fate if we continue
mass immigration into America.
- Hopefully, our civilization cannot and will not convert
to the oppressive concepts of Islam when free thought, free actions and
freedom of religion remain our most sacred rights.
