- Law Cases

(Nov. 17, 2012) — There are those who say that Islam is a “religion of peace.” Of those, some are liars and the rest are delusional. Islam is what it is, but the one thing it can never be is a respected participant in any civilized society. Events of early September in which radical Islamists either attacked or laid siege to U.S. embassies across the Muslim world, should be proof enough of the violent nature of Islamists. In Benghazi, Libya, the U.S. Ambassador and three others were brutally murdered in an al-Qaeda attack. It is reported that Ambassador Stevens was brutally sodomized before he was murdered and his body put on display in the streets of Benghazi.
The nature of Islam is such that, in the absence of a complete and total renunciation of the Quran and Sharia Law, it is impossible for any Muslim believer to participate in western society. Under the Islamic concept called Taqiyya, a Muslim is permitted to deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts, so long as that dishonesty inures to the benefit of Islam.
It is what allows devout Muslims to take the naturalization oath that all new U.S. citizens must take. They swear as follows: “I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the armed forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.”
When devout Muslims take that oath are they being sincere? No, they are willfully lying. It is the concept of Taqiyya… the right to lie… that Muslim’s rely on when they take the oath to become citizens of the United States.
In the mistaken belief that their 7th century culture is superior in every way to western cultures of the 21st century, Islam has not attempted to hide or sugar-coat their ultimate goal, which is to replace civil society in every western nation with an Islamic society based on Sharia Law and the Quran. Accordingly, Islam offers those of us in western cultures a rather simple choice: either convert to Islam or die.
But what if we in the Christian world refuse to convert, and what if we prefer to live rather than die? What is our alternative? Given the choice between converting to Islam or going to our final reward, our only reasonable alternative is to begin now to quarantine Muslims to those regions of the world where they can share their misery with none but other Muslims. If co-existence between Islam and the other major religions is not an option, then Islam must yield. Islam must go the way of communism and fascism, and that must be done in a timely manner before they are allowed to achieve majority status in any Western nation. Time is short.
The 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” Conversely, the Quran teaches that Islam is the only true religion and that all other religions and all the peoples of the world must yield to it and submit to it. To suggest that those of the Christian or Jewish faith can somehow reach an accommodation or a compromise with Islam, or to co-exist peaceably with it, is to state an absurdity.
The Declaration of Independence, perhaps the most beautiful collection of words ever penned by the hand of man, proclaims that, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
But who would know Islam better than those who’ve had the courage to leave the faith? An organization called FaithFreedom.org is, in their own words, “a grassroots movement of ex-Muslims” whose goal it is to tell the truth about Islam and to promote the adoption of a constitutional amendment outlawing Islam in the United States.
The organization’s website states that, “Muhammad’s merry band of disciples raided villages, looted and raped the women, and enslaved all who were not killed outright… No other cause is responsible for more deaths than Islam… Islam can’t be reformed, but it can be eradicated. It can’t be molded, but it can be smashed… ”
In a November 24, 2010 article published by FaithFreedom.org, Dr. Jai Maharaj outlines the scope of a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution. As justification for the constitutional amendment, he writes:
“Islam is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution. It is necessary to outlaw the practice of Islam in the United States of America because the teachings of this religion are antithetical to many vital provisions of the U.S. Constitution and represent an existential threat to the security of American citizens. Furthermore, Shariah law, which is intrinsic to all orthodox forms of Islam, which is based directly on the Qur’an, seeks, as a stated goal of the religion, to replace civil law with a system based on inhumane values on the presumption that these values are superior to anything in the Constitution or in the religions of the world, including the religious faiths of the vast majority of Americans.”
Dr. Maharaj reminds us that “The United States was founded on ideals of individual rights, including the individual right to practice one’s religion of choice, or no religion, and that compulsion to practice any religion is not tolerable… Islam, in contrast, rejects each of these principles and is therefore incompatible, on a fundamental level, with American citizenship.”
He writes, “Islam preaches that it and it alone is the true religion and that Islam will dominate the world and impose its will on all other religions and upon democratic institutions. This view is completely unacceptable to Americans and is anti-Constitutional.”
He reminds us that “Saudi Arabia, the spiritual home of Islam, does not permit the practice of any other religion on its soil, and this being the case, it would be unjustifiable to regard Islam as in any way compatible with the many religions which exist in the United States. To suppose that the character of Islam is such that it can peacefully co-exist with followers of other faiths is, to be candid, an absurd proposition.
“Islam includes as its basic tenet the spread of its faith by any and all means necessary, including violent conquest of non-believers, and demands of its followers that they implement violent jihad (holy war) against those unwilling to convert or submit to Islam, including by deception and subversion of existing institutions, none of which is remotely compatible with the (United States) Constitution. Additionally, representatives of Islam around the world… have declared jihad on America and regularly declare that America should cease to exist, and this being the case, any other course than outlawing Islam within the (United States) would be folly.”
In making the case that 1st Amendment protections of the U.S. Constitution would in no way be incompatible with an anti-Islam amendment, Dr. Maharaj argues that Islam is a sworn enemy to everything that America stands for. He writes, “Because Islam is subversive by its very nature, and antagonistic to followers of all other religions, actively seeking to harm people of other faiths, and actively seeking to replace the U.S. Constitution with an alien legal system that is abhorrent to Americans, Muslims have no claim to First Amendment freedoms or protections.”
So how do we respond to those on the political left who are certain to wave the Constitution under our noses, defending the right of radical Islamists to subjugate all non-Muslims, including the people of the United States?
The 1st Amendment contains no language prohibiting the people of the United States from taking whatever steps are necessary to defend themselves from invasion and subjugation by purveyors of an alien political, economic, and religious culture. Nowhere does it compel the American people to drink the poison-laced Islamic Kool-Ade, and nothing in the Constitution compels us to commit national suicide. It’s us or them. Either Islam must be tamed or it must be outlawed, just as communism was in times past.
