Sharia Law and its Goal to Subjugate Humanity
Last month’s uproar over Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News statements that questioned Rep. Ilhan Omar’s American allegiance—statements that got her fired from the “conservative” news network—are not going away. In her opinion segment, Pirro stated: “Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” Needless to say, Pirro touched a delicate topic, and whenever a public figure seeks to question or point out the draconian tenets of Islam as dictated by the sharia, within which many Muslims in the West seek to auto-govern themselves, there are going to be repercussions.
The concept of self-governance under sharia law by Muslims in Western society has been a topic of controversy since the turn of the millennium, especially in light of the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001. Proponents of sharia in the West, under which many Muslims seek to settle personal affairs—such as divorce, custody of children and inheritance—claim it is an exercise of their freedom of religion, a human right.
YET, WHAT IS SHARIA?
Sharia literally means the “way” or “path.” Historically articulated, it is a shorthand term for an amorphous body of legal rulings, judgments and opinions, assembled over the course of many centuries after the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s death. It is based on the Quran and a copious number of hadiths (the sayings and acts of Muhammad) developed by the fuqaha (jurists) whose opinions enjoy an almost absolute authority over the faithful.
As a rule of law, it precludes the development of human reason as it is viewed as an expression of Allah’s inscrutable will. It is this same supremacy that renders sacred and permanent the concept of inequality between the Islamic community and the non-Islamic community, between the Muslim and the non-Muslim, and between man and woman.
There are two essential weaknesses of sharia, due to which the Islamic social realm has been absorbed into the whims of the political one: its autonomy and its incompletion. As a codification of customs, it does not depend on any official body (state or clerical), and therefore there is no universal concordance on its legislation within the Islamic body politic.
Sharia thus generates a zone parallel to a political or authoritative one that can be either circumvented or manipulated by people in authority. It may therefore be said to contain law, but at the same time, it is composed of elements and aspects that are not law per se since it excludes judgement.
The problem of having sharia alongside a Western legal system is that this will eventually lead to a systematic breakdown of civil/constitutional and governmental authority and regulation over its citizens.
We must remember sharia advocates, such as the American-Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), do not merely pursue concessions from government officials regarding sharia law, but rather their full and total capitulation, especially since they hold that everyone, regardless of religious affiliation falls within its jurisdiction.
As expressed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam (1990):
“Allah … gave humanity a universal and well-balanced civilization, in which harmony [under the Islamic Sharia] is established between hereunder and the hereafter, knowledge is combined with faith, and to fulfill the expectations from this community to guide all humanity, with is confused because of different and conflicting beliefs and ideologies and to provide solutions for all chronic problems of this materialistic civilization.”
Much of the pro-sharia or Islamist crusade in the West has curbed our freedom of speech, for which groups such as CAIR have, with the help of the mainstream media, gotten government officials to capitulate — church officials, especially the Catholic hierarchy have also facilitated sharia proponents in this. Part of the epidemic has been, according to what then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo addressing a church in Kansas in 2014 regarding the public adherence to Islamic (sharia) law: “This threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer.” His ally Frank Gaffney, President of the Center for Security Policy, once argued that adherence to Islamic law—far from being protected by the First Amendment—should be considered “an impermissible act of sedition, which has to be prosecuted.”
We have a duty to defend our way of life, which is based on equity. Hence, we should even feel cornered or isolated by the sharia activists or by the dictatorship of the mainstream media. Instead, let us promote our Judaic-Christian principles: the Commandments given to us by God through Moses to be observed as our Lord Jesus Christ taught us.

I invite everyone to please take a look at my book Islam: Religion of Peace? The Violation of Natural Rights and Western Cover-Up. Everything you wanted to know about Islam and what you can do to keep it from taking over our society is in this book! Check out some of the blurbs:
Amid all the public discussion about the true nature and derivation of the global jihad threat, too little attention has been paid to the myriad ways in which Islamic law is actually not benign or good for individuals or societies, but in its pure form actively detrimental to the wellbeing of both. In this important book, Fr. Mario Alexis Portella illustrates how Sharia contravenes natural rights in numerous particulars, and causes whole classes of people (notably women and non-Muslims) lasting harm. All Catholic leaders engaged in “dialogue” with Muslims should prepare for that “dialogue” by reading and studying this book. — Robert Spencer, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad
“If you have friends or family members who still think Islam is a religion of peace, give them this book. Mario Portella delves into the Quran, Islamic law, and the history of Islam to show that hostility toward unbelievers, and violence against them, are constants in Islamic doctrine and practice. Find out what the West has let itself in for by allowing Muslim migrants in huge numbers to settle in Western countries — read Islam – Religion of Peace?: The Violation of Natural Rights and Western Cover-up.” — Pamela Geller, author of Fatwa: Hunted In America and President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative
Rev. Mario shows us why we cannot give in to the pressures of political correctness by remaining silent in this struggle. We must shine a spotlight on extremists, recognize the challenges they pose, and fight back in the arena of ideas. — Rev. Majed El Shafie, President & Founder, OFWI.org
The new millennium ushered in a new era filled with attacks orchestrated by radical Islamists targeting our civilization. Because of the sophisticated social media methods adapted and eloquently used by the Jihadists, the brutality that the Eastern Christians endured for 14 centuries was put on display for the world to see. This savagery encouraged many Muslims to leave their faith and become secular, creating a new space for real teaching and real dialogue. This book and the message it shares is a must-read by all who are prepared to have an earnest conversation. — Juliana Taimoorazy – Founder and President of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council
The Imposition of Sharia by European Leaders is Happening in America at the Hands of U.S. Leaders
This month, the “Katie & The Wolff” Tour sweeps Texas and elsewhere as Briton Katie Hopkins and Austrian Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff share their experiences as targets of their respective government’s surrender to Islam/sharia with American audiences who are mostly unaware of how close Europe is to being overtaken by jihadis.
In the wake of the wrongful and contrived arrest/imprisonment of England’s Tommy Robinson to silence his loud and powerful voice speaking truth about the danger of Islam, these two brave women believe the best place to sound the alarm is in the United States.
As a well-known British media figure and businesswoman, Katie Hopkins speaks openly about the threat of Islam to liberty in Europe. In Europe today, however, any speech which offends muslims is not welcome and not legal.
For her truthful discussions about Islam, Hopkins was fired from her TV and radio shows, let go from her writing gigs at newspapers and other publications, and was directly threatened by jihadis trying to kill her.
While all of this unfolded, a play opened in Wales entitled, “The Assassination of Katie Hopkins” with no condemnation from the British government.
Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is the daughter of an Austrian diplomat who lived in Iran before, during, and after the 1979 Iranian Revolution, and who found herself in Libya on 9/11/01.
Wolff began giving public presentations about the basics of Islam in her home country of Austria, including stating that Islam’s prophet Mohammad married Aisha when she was six years old, which conforms with doctrinal Islamic teaching.
In 2009, Sabaditsch-Wolff was convicted in an Austrian court for “denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion,” in violation of Section 188 of the Austrian Criminal Code.
The conviction was upheld by an Austrian appellate court in 2011.
The Austrian courts ruled Sabaditsch-Wolff’s comments are “an abusive attack on the Prophet of Islam which could stir up prejudice and threaten religious peace,” which, by the way, is not consistent with centuries of Western law and a reasoned understanding of justice.
The court ordered Sabaditsch-Wolff to pay a fine of €480 ($625) or an alternative sentence of 60 days in prison.
In October 2018, a seven-judge panel of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) concluded the Austrian courts “carefully balanced the applicant’s right to freedom of expression with the rights of others to have their religious feelings protected...”
In other words, the Austrian courts, as well as the European Court of Human Rights, are imposing the Islamic Law of Slander upon Europeans.
In sharia, “Slander” is legally defined as saying/communicating anything about Islam a muslim would “dislike,” and it is a capital crime.
For more about sharia, get a copy of UTT’s 2-DVD set “It’s All About Sharia” by clicking HERE.
The European Court has adopted the Islamic legal definition of “Human Rights” as defined by the Islamic world under the banner of the OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation). The OIC approved and served the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam to the United Nations in 1993. In it, the entire muslim world at the Head of State and King level defines “human rights” as the imposition of sharia.
The leaders of Europe are doing the jihadis bidding for them by imposing Islamic Law (sharia) on Europeans. This is what the Muslim Brotherhood calls “civilization jihad by their hands.”
This past week, leaders in Fort Worth, Texas held a prayer vigil with Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood leaders at the Islamic Association of Tarrant County, exemplifying the ease at which jihadis are able to get U.S. leaders to submit to them just as leaders are submitting to suit-wearing jihadis in Europe.
Most notably, Governor Tim Walz of Minnesota supported and defended – or more accurately “aided and abetted” – Hamas terrorists doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), by speaking at a CAIR event in Minnesota several days ago.
Governor Walz called for an end to “Islamophobia,” a word created by the Muslim Brotherhood’s International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) to be used to impose the Islamic Law of Slander on the non-muslim community.
Right now American leaders – with their co-conspirators in the media – are imposing sharia and condemning free speech on U.S. citizens.
America stands at the precipice of U.S. judges, courts, and leaders putting Americans in jail for speaking truth about Islam’s barbaric law called sharia.
The war for liberty is happening NOW.
Every time a mayor, police chief, congressman, senator, pastor, rabbi, or National Security Advisor, panders to the Islamic community, and gives in to their demands for “religious accommodation,” they are, in fact, surrendering one more foot of ground to sharia – a system that stands in direct opposition to liberty, America’s founding principles, and U.S. federal and state laws.

Muslim Workers Sue UPS For Discrimination
A lawsuit was filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations on behalf of two Muslim workers against a Minnesota UPS branch after the employees were reportedly fired for needing to pray during the workday.
The lawsuit alleged the Atlanta-based company, as well as the Edina, Minnesota, staffing company Doherty Staffing Services, discriminated against several of its Muslim employees and violated the Minnesota Human Rights Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, KAAL reported.
The workers claimed in the suit that before June 2014, they were allowed to engage in daily prayer outside of their breaks and during work hours. When a new operations manager took over, that policy changed. The new manager reportedly asked employees in a meeting to raise their hands if they wanted to pray.
“After most Muslim employees raised their hands, (the operations manager) stated that he wanted to replace all of the employees who had raised their hands,” the suit stated.
The employees claimed they were given one option if they wanted to pray during the day: They would have to leave and go home. They were also told that if they left, they would not be allowed to return.
“In general, most employees, when this happens, they just walk away,” Amir Malik, an attorney for CAIR, told KAAL. “They don’t complain, they don’t know their rights, they’re just trying to put food on the table, and companies feel they can get away with this. And we’ve seen multiple cases of this and it focuses a lot on low-skill jobs where they think that people don’t know their rights and they can be abused.”
UPS later issued a statement stating that they investigated and found no evidence to support the workers’ claims:
Both UPS and Doherty Staffing Services, a company that employs and manages the workforce at the UPS Mail Innovations facility in Mendota Heights, thoroughly investigated and found no evidence to support these allegations. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission also found no cause for claims against UPS and dismissed the allegations.
Many readers criticized the workers for suing the company over their right to pray.
“Prayer for what?” one reader commented on the site’s Facebook page. “Simply wanting to disrupt the system that works to keep America going. That is their only objective; if I had to pray 5 times a day for no results, I’d find a new religion that works with the system that provides life for my family. They’d rather sue the employer and have a liberal judge give them a life’s pension.”
“It would seem to me that employers would have a letter of understanding on the subject of breaks and the responsible of the employees to adhere the the rules of of the employer and have the applicants sign it as a condition of employment,” another wrote.
“I guess maybe all Christians sometime are having a special problem in their life and might be at work and want to say a prayer,” another added. “I always know I can pray wherever I am I can pray silently to God and He hears me. I don’t have to go take a shower or be on my knees to pray. My God is not deaf or require a ritual before He will hear my prayer.”

A new Android app has launched with the focus of allowing Muslims to report individuals who commit blasphemy, or insult Islam.
No, this is not a joke. The app, “Smart Pakem”, which launched in Indonesia last month at the request of the Indonesian government, will allow users and government officials to uphold Sharia law and target and report people who hold “misguided” beliefs in violation of Islamic law, which forbids insults of Islam, insults against the Prophet Mohammed, or the recognition of any other religion besides Islam.
Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world, with an estimated Muslim population of 207 million.T
Indonesia’s criminal code prohibits blasphemy, which is defined as “the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things”.
The Code’s Article 156(a) targets those who deliberately, in public, “express feelings of hostility, hatred, or contempt against religion”. The penalty for violating Article 156(a) of Indonesia’s criminal code is a maximum of five years imprisonment.
Rajan Anandan, who serves as the VP of Google in south-east Asia, has not shown any resistance to the app, which is available in the Google app store.
The National Secular Society (NSS) has since written to Anadan requesting the Google not stock the app in the app store, arguing that the app will have negative consequences for religious minorities and will further minimize freedom of expression.
According to Human Rights Watch, 125 people were convicted of blasphemy in Indonesia between 2004 and 2014. 23 additional people have been convicted since 2014.
Stephen Evans, who serves as the chief executive of NSS said said Google’s decision to stock the Sharia app was “incongruous with Google’s mission statement” and “runs directly contrary to the democratic ideals which Google says it stands for”. Evans also said the app will “normalize restrictions on freedom of expression in Indonesia and elsewhere”.
“Indonesia’s blasphemy law is a morally unjustifiable tool of repression which should be repealed as soon as possible. While this law exists anyone who believes in free expression should make it as difficult as possible for the Indonesian government to enforce the law. Google has greatly benefited from the freedom to share information globally. We ask it and other multinational companies to consider whether they can in good conscience profit from the repression caused by governments’ crackdowns on free speech.”
Since the app’s launch in the Google app store, it has been flooded with one star reviews and criticisms by anti-Sharia and human rights advocates.
On November 29, 2018, investigative journalist Laura Loomer handcuffed herself to Twitter HQ in NYC after she was banned from Twitter for criticizing Sharia law. While handcuffed, Loomer argued “Twitter, Facebook, Apple, Google, Instagram, they are essentially upholding Sharia. Silicon Valley is essentially upholding Sharia when they decide to ban me for posting facts about Islam, when they decide to ban me for posting facts about Sharia law and criticizing an anti-Jewish Muslim Congresswoman.”

SHARIA LAW IN AMERICA
I recently was engaged in an online debate with an individual who challenged me to “prove” that “Sharia law was being implemented in the U.S.” When I couldn’t do that within 10 seconds, he accused me of “baseless and infantile accusations” and walked away doing the happy dance.
What had happened was this: In defending our American way of life against those who would radically alter it, I posted a link to a website article by the Family Research Council titled “Islam, Shariah Law, and the American Constitution”. This article, in part, says the following:
“While our litigation and policy battles with the secular world keep our left flank occupied, the issue of Islamic theocracy amasses ominously on our rear flank. Immigrants from Muslim countries are moving in increasingly greater numbers to Europe and the Americas, many with the specific purpose of extending the “Abode of Islam”. For example, Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, a Sunni Muslim cleric and the head of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, is quoted as saying:
“”Islam entered Europe twice and left it…Perhaps the next conquest, Allah willing, will be by means of preaching and ideology. The conquest need not necessarily be by the sword…Perhaps we will conquer these lands without armies. We want an army of preachers and teachers who will present Islam in all languages and in all dialects.”” [Emphasis mine]
“Likewise, Omar M. Ahmad, Chairman of the Council for American Islamic Relations has said, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant.” The Koran…should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth. Similarly, Anjem Choudary, Head of Islam4UK, states: “Our objectives are to invite the societies in which we live to think about Islam as an alternative way of life…and ultimately, as well, to establish the Shariah on state level.” [Emphasis mine]
In posting this, I was accused of “fear-mongering”, and informed that my opponent’s little circle of Muslim friends (if they even exist) does NOT seek to implement Sharia law in the US as “I suggested”, (we’ll look at taqiyya later); and my motivation by posting the article excerpt was to “drum up fear about American Muslims”. After a bit more back and forth, he challenged me to “show us where US Muslim politicians, or any politician, are implementing Sharia here. It’s a non-issue.”
The answer to this challenge is a bit more subtle, but first let’s take a quick look at what “Sharia Law” is and examine a couple tenets of the Islamic belief system.
What is Sharia?
Sharia, or “the proper way” is believed by Muslims to be the divine will of Allah and derives from two authoritative sources: the Qur’an and the Sunna. The Qur’an is believed by Muslims to be the perfect and final expression of Allah’s will for mankind. Some verses are considered as authoritative sources for normative law. The second source is the Hadith – stories of Mohammed’s life and behavior which are also considered to be a legal and binding authority for how a Muslim must live. The legal and instructional parts of the Hadith make up the Sunna.
Over time, a system of legal jurisprudence based on the Qur’an and the Sunna has arisen and Sharia now encompasses all of Islamic doctrine and legal jurisprudence.
So, to be clear, Sharia is a legal system based entirely on the belief system of a religion. Sharia “…includes legally mandated, recommended, permitted, discouraged and prohibitive practices that are strongly biased against women, homosexuals and non-Muslims. Shariah provides a legal framework for violence up to and including legalized murder against apostates (people who have left Islam), homosexuals, blasphemers and especially women accused of various crimes…Shariah criminal punishments are extreme, including amputations and lashings for numerous crimes.” 
Because of the bias against certain persons including homosexuals, women and children, Sharia law is often at odds with the United States Constitution because it denies equal protection under the law and calls for cruel and unusual punishments. This is a growing problem, because of increasing numbers of Muslim immigrants from other countries, especially Muslim countries in turmoil.
Living Under Sharia
Islam requires complete submission to the will of Allah and that includes living one’s life in accordance with Sharia. Most Muslims in Muslim-majority countries believe that Sharia should be the law of the land, and Muslims in non-Muslim countries including European countries and the United States are increasingly demanding that Sharia be incorporated into the host country’s legal system and to have their cases adjudicated using Sharia legal jurisprudence. Many Muslims also believe that Sharia should apply to non-Muslims as well.
Because being Muslim means living under Sharia, it’s no surprise that when the numbers of Muslims in a community, city or region increase, so too do the calls to have Sharia apply in legal jurisprudence, hence the call to “implement” Sharia law. In fact, Muslims are prohibited by Sharia from accepting secular or local laws as being superior. For this reason, according to one source, “Muslim immigrants prefer their own judges and do not trust secular Western legal systems.”
In Europe, aspects of Sharia law relating to family court matters and finance have already been integrated into some nations’ legal systems. Sharia compliant banking systems are in existence, and Sharia courts have been introduced in some countries. Increasingly in some European countries, Sharia “shadow” courts are trying matters in an extralegal fashion, preempting the legally instituted courts of the country. This may not be a problem unless Muslim women and children do not have the option to opt out of this jurisprudence. Verdicts rendered in these courts may violate the legal foundations of the country and constitute human rights violations.
Sharia in America
To return to my opponent’s challenge, my research has not revealed any “US Muslim politicians, or any politician” who is “implementing Sharia here”. In fact, what I have found is that many courts are already applying Sharia law in the U.S., that there is a group of Muslim jurists who promote Sharia in the U.S., and that the Center for Security Policy has documented over 100 cases (of possibly thousands) where Sharia legal precepts have been applied and then overturned by higher courts because they violated the U.S. Constitution. Further, what I have found is that some American politicians are introducing legislation to exclude Sharia law from American jurisprudence.
The Center for Security Policy in their book “Sharia in American Courts: The Expanding Incursion of Islamic Law in the U.S. Legal System” has identified 146 published appellate legal cases involving conflicts between Sharia and American law. These cases were a sample drawn from a population of thousands of unpublished cases. The disturbing finding of this study is that some judges are rendering judgments based on Sharia law even when those judgments are in clear conflict with Constitutional protections.
The significant findings from this study are:
“At the trial court level: 22 decisions found that the application of Shariah was at odds with the state’s public policy; 15 found Shariah to be applicable to the case at bar; 9 were indeterminate; and in 4 cases Shariah was not applicable to the decision at this level, but was applicable at the appellate level.
“At the appellate court level: 23 decisions found that the application of Shariah was at odds with the state’s public policy; 12 found Shariah to be applicable to the case at bar; 8 were indeterminate; and in 7 cases Shariah was not applicable to the decision, but had been applicable at the trial court level.
“Across the 146 cases there were 21 foreign countries from which Shariah-based legal conventions or decisions were brought to bear upon the case. Some case made reference to more than one country while others involved Shariah without reference to a specific foreign country.
“One Arizona case…was unique in having multiple conflicts of law. At the trial court level, the judge arbitrarily applied the foreign Islamic law of Morocco, even though the parties were neither Moroccan nor Muslims…”
One of the cases presented in the book describes a Moroccan couple living in New Jersey. M.J.R., the husband, began physically abusing his wife, S.D. after three months of marriage. He also forced himself on his wife, engaging in non-consensual sex on multiple occasions. He told S.D. that “Islam allowed him to have sex with her any time he wished.”
The court in question refused to grant the woman a restraining order against her husband because the husband believed it was his religious right to rape his wife. The New Jersey appellate court reversed the trial court and ordered it to enter a final restraining order against the husband, finding the trial court in error for applying a religious (Shariah) concept in violation of New Jersey’s criminal code. (S.D. v. M.J.R., 2 A.3d 412 (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div. 2010).
The remaining cases in the book cover instances of family law, commercial law and divorce proceedings where Sharia law was in conflict with American jurisprudence.
Given that the United States was founded upon the principles articulated in the Declaration of Independence, it is disturbing that there are American universities and colleges offering courses and specialization in Sharia including law and business schools in addition to general courses.
There are several groups listed in one of the appendices to the book that support the study and promotion of Sharia in the United States, including:
Shariah Scholars Association of North America (SSANA)
International Society for Islamic Legal Studies
Islamic Law Students Association
The Association of American Law Schools, Section on Islamic Law
Karamah – Muslim Women Lawyers for Human Rights
Islamic Legal Studies Program, Harvard Law School
North America Imams Federation
Finally, there is the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, a “…U.S.-based organization committed to the establishment of Shariah, especially for personal status and family law. Its…boards…include local Imams and Shariah authorities across America, as well as Shariah authorities from other countries.”  [Emphasis mine]
“AMJA is deeply rooted in local American communities, but also associated with international and U.S. Shariah authorities and Shariah institutions, and serves as a prolific website center for fatwas on many topics. AMJA also holds conferences and publishes proceedings. It is an active organization with significant reach both inside of the United States and internationally.”
One reason many American politicians are bringing forward legislation to exclude Sharia law from American jurisprudence is because of AMJA’s position that in matters involving Muslims, Sharia law should take precedence over secular law.
This legislation is called “American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) model legislation”. It was crafted to protect American citizens’ constitutional rights and prohibit the incursion of foreign laws and legal doctrines. Versions of legislation have been passed in Tennessee, Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Alabama and Arizona. I would encourage Colorado to join this list.
Taqiyya and “Fear-Mongering”
In Islam, there is a concept known as “taqiyya” that provides a legal dispensation for a Muslim to lie about their faith. The concept is supposed to apply only when the person is under duress or threat, but other verses from the Qur’an and the Hadith support the view that Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers in order to defeat them. If my opponent’s friends truly exist, then it is quite possible that they are practicing taqiyya or may simply just not be very devout Muslims and are ignorant of what I have thoroughly documented above.
My opponent accused me of “fear-mongering”. If pointing out factual information about a well-known religion that is causing barbaric violence and terror around the globe is fear-mongering, then I am guilty as charged. What is amazing is that I am pointing out what the Muslims themselves believe and openly declare: they are intent on expanding the global reach of Islam, they are bound by their religion to do so by any means possible, once they reach sufficient numbers they grow more powerful politically, and the incursion of Sharia law into European and American jurisprudence is already well underway.
Are any American politicians trying to “implement” Sharia law? Not that I know of. Are there legal scholars, students, practicing Muslims and others trying to implement Sharia law in the U.S.? Yes, absolutely.
My Challenge to Progressives Who Defend Islam
Now that I have fully answered my opponent, I pose a question to him and to other like-minded Leftists in Colorado politics and elsewhere:
Why do you so passionately defend a legal system and the religion it is based upon that provides for:
No separation of church and state;
Criminalizes personal matters such as adultery, intoxicants and recreational games, apostasy, free speech, blasphemy, consensual sex between two adults, homosexuality, improper dress, music and art, and prohibits abortion after four months of pregnancy;
Legalizes what we would consider crimes such as domestic violence against women, disallows gender equality and oppresses women as second class citizens, allows for lying, polygamy and pedophilia, rape, religious discrimination (no cakes for you, gay couple!), slavery, terrorism, assassination and murder;
Imposes dangerous rituals such as mandatory fasting;
Allows for punishments including amputation, stoning, crucifixion, immolation, crushing heads with concrete blocks, drowning, and others;
Throws gays off of roofs then stones them to death;
Absolute obedience to the very Sharia law you defend
I Proudly Defend American Jurisprudence
While progressives may wish to embrace, defend, excuse, rationalize and otherwise dismiss as “fear-mongering” the threat to our way of life that Islam – in its openly self-proclaimed form – presents, I stand by these words:
“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.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
I also stand by the words of the United States Constitution, including the First Amendment which prohibits the establishment of a state religion; the Eighth, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishments; and the Fourteenth, which reinforces the concept of equal protection under the law.

Sharia law is a political system that is authoritarian, violent and supremacist at its core. Sharia contains regulations that mandate death for those who exercise their freedom of conscience and want to leave Islam, for those who are deemed to have blasphemed against Islam by insulting Allah or the Quran or the prophet or by even speaking honestly about their contents in ways that Muslims object to. — Robert Spencer
When our elected officials decide to make new laws, they should have in mind our national interests first. They should realize that foreign laws such as sharia will never be compatible with our Constitution or our way of life. — Amil Imani
Sharia is far more than a legal system of laws. It includes theology, law, philosophy, religious rituals and morals. The Sharia claims to be Allah’s law and must replace all other forms of government. — Dr. Bill Warner

Devvy Kidd’s recent article, 2019: The Year We the People Say No More was superb. If you missed it, make sure you read it because the number of Islamists elected to federal, state and local politics is a warning shot to American citizens. We are being overrun and few have taken notice.
Sharia, or Islamic religious law, is a growing threat to the United States. The steady adoption of sharia’s tenets is a strategy Muslims are using to transform America into an Islamic state.
Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and other lesser known religions do not mandate death for those who do not agree with their faith. Only Islam kills the infidel. It dictates death by stoning, beheading, amputation of limbs, and flogging. Fourteen nations have the death penalty for homosexuals, and five of them carry it out.
Nonie Darwish’s article,Sharia for Dummies, lays out the tenets of sharia which proves it is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution despite politicians and pundits like Texas Republican David Barton who believe it is.
Islamic Doctrine is Totalitarian
Dr. Bill Warner explains Islamic doctrine…Totalitarianism is found in the very name, Islam. Islam means submission, submission to the Koran and the Sunna of Mohammed. We see the basis for absolute power in Mohammed’s life. After he went to Medina, he became a jihadist and attacked his neighbors. When he arrived in Medina, it was half Jewish. In two years, there were no more Jews left in Medina. They were exiled, assassinated, enslaved and executed. Mohammed attacked the pagans of Arabia and the Jews. After Arabia submitted to Islam, Mohammed turned to Syria and attacked the Christians.
In the end, Political Islam will not tolerate opposition. Here is a sample of some of the Islamic political doctrine of absolute, total power:
Koran 2:193 Fight them [Kafirs] until there is no more discord and the religion of Allah reigns absolute, … (Kafirs are infidels or non-believers)
Here are two hadiths:
Muslim 001, 0031 Mohammed: “I have been ordered to wage war against mankind until they accept that there is no god but Allah and that they believe I am His prophet and accept all revelations spoken through me. …
Bukhari 4, 52, 196 Mohammed: “I have been directed to fight the Kafirs until every one of them admits, ‘There is only one god and that is Allah.’
Today the power of Islam is increasing over the globe due to jihad and migration. After it enters a society, Islam rules given enough time. The result of Islamic political doctrine is that all power – political, cultural, and religious–becomes totally Islamic. Islam is the most successful totalitarian system in history. There are post-Communist societies and post-Nazi societies but, there are no post Islamic societies. Link
Fifty years ago, we would have said this is impossible, but today in Brooklyn, New York, we now have Muslim sharia patrol cars that are nearly identical to New York City Police Department cruisers, and these sharia patrol cars are actually allowed to cruise the streets of New York City.
Sharia is here!
American Law v Sharia Law
Islam is not just a religion, it is a complete civilization with a detailed political system, religion, and legal code – the sharia. Jihad is political action with a religious motivation, and sharia law is the political implementation of the Islamic civilization.
Under sharia there is no freedom of religion, of speech, of thought, of artistic expression, of the press, of equality of peoples, of equal rights for women, of different classes of people…there is one set of laws for Muslim males and different laws for women and non-Muslims. Women can be beaten, murdered and sexually mutilated. A non-Muslim cannot bear arms. jahiliyah” target=”_blank”>There is no democracy…our Constitution is a man-made document of ignorance, that must submit to sharia. Non-Muslims are dhimmis, third class citizens. All governments must be ruled by sharia law, and unlike common law, sharia is not interpretive, nor can it be changed. There exists no Golden Rule.
Sharia’s Demands on Society
Here are just a few examples of sharia at work in American society as told by Dr. Bill Warner in his book, Sharia Law for Non-Muslims. The majority of democrats support prayer spaces for Muslims, but not for Christians or Jews.
When schools and employers are asked to give up a room for Islamic prayer, that is asking us to implement sharia law.
When a Muslim wears a head scarf, that is in obedience to sharia law.
When our newspapers would not publish the Danish Mohammed cartoons, our newspapers were submitting to the demands of sharia law.
When demands are made for our hospitals to treat Muslim women in special ways, that is sharia.
When Muslim men cannot be touched by female nurses, that is sharia law.
When our textbooks have to be vetted by Muslim organizations prior to being used in our schools, that is in accordance with sharia law.
When foot baths are demanded in colleges, universities and airports, that’s sharia law, and taxpayers fund it.
Six Muslim Airforce airmen can now wear beards thanks to a recently granted religious accommodation waiver. That is sharia law.
An Islamic Republic.
The 2018 midterms elected two Muslim women to Congress — Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. Since they both wear the traditional hijab, Nancy Pelosi will move to repeal 180-year rule prohibiting head coverings on the floor of Congress. Some suggested that all the women in Congress wear the hijab in solidarity with their new Muslim colleagues, making America an Islamic Republic.
Representative Ilhan Omar, the Somali Muslim from Minneapolis who replaces Keith Ellison, has already reversed her position on the BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) Movement that seeks to delegitimize Israel now that she is safely elected. Since she has cited no reasons for changing her mind, she must have been lying.
Deception is part of Islam. Allah is a deceiver. Mohammed was a deceiver, and therefore, every Muslim can be a deceiver. This is Taqiyya or sacred deception” target=”_blank”>Taqiyya. So, the next time you’re hearing something about Islam that just doesn’t sound right, and it comes from the mouth of a Muslim, you’re right. It’s not right. It’s a lie. It is Taqiyya.
Newly elected Detroit congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib, used Thomas Jefferson’s two volume English translation of the Koran for her swearing-in ceremony, as did Ilhan Omar. Tlaib wore a Palestinian robe to show she is firmly in the anti-Israel camp.
It is not Jefferson’s Koran. It is Mohammed’s Koran. Jefferson owned a Koran to understand and defeat the Islamic Barbary Pirates” target=”_blank”>Islamic Barbary Wars. That was the first war on terror. How many members of Congress have read the Koran & Sunna from cover to cover or have any idea what is written on these pages? Rashida Tlaib, by swearing her oath on a Koran, commits an act of sedition. Link
Rashida Tlaib, D-Islam who boasted in a a foul-mouthed tirade that the new Democratic House leadership will impeach ‘motherf***er’ Donald Trump doubled down on Twitter, refusing to apologize. This woman should immediately be impeached!
These Democrat communist fools are playing into the hands of our destruction by embracing these barbaric savages, and our dumbed down electorate puts them in office over us.
This is sharia!
Sharia Attacks Christians
Robert Spencer’s article in Frontpage Magazine tells of a Christmas Eve Washington Times report about Muslims in Uganda forcing Christians to convert to Islam. Muslims now consider any public statement of the Christian Faith to be a calculated insult to Muslims, for which they can justifiably exact revenge. This is, or should be, sobering news for the comfortable Christians of the West who have made an idol out of “interfaith dialogue” and fastidiously avoid saying anything remotely critical about Islam, even as the Muslim persecution of Christians continues worldwide.
“In June,” the Times reported, “a group of Muslims attacked Christian preachers in eastern Uganda during a ‘crusade,’ where Christians publicly profess their faith and invite others to join. Muslims in the town accused the Christians of mocking Islam by publicly saying Jesus was the Son of God.”
This is sharia.
Sharia Attacks Jews and Israel
Islamic anti-Semitism continues to manifest itself around the country and it is driven by Islamic migration. Authorities in Los Angeles have arrested a Somali Muslim man suspected of attempting to run down Orthodox Jews outside of a synagogue during the Sabbath. When he missed them a second time, the driver struck a traffic sign. He then exited the vehicle, started screaming obscenities and anti-Semitic curses.
Rewriting the history of the Land of Israel in order to deny Israel’s right to exist is central to Palestinian Authority (PA) policy. Long before it started the PA terror campaign (the “Intifada,” 2000-2005), the PA was fighting a history war – erasing Jewish history and replacing it with a fabricated Palestinian history. This rewriting has two central goals:
1- Erase the Jewish nation’s 3,000-year history in the Land of Israel;
2- Invent ancient Palestinian, Muslim and Arab histories in the land.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is announcing a lawsuit against the state of Texas for passing anti-BDS legislation last year. The BDS movement against Israel aims to strangle the Jewish state economically while at the same time calls for the flooding of Palestinians into Israel to destroy the Jewish character of the state.
Muslim Linda Sarsour, one of the leaders of the Women’s March who called on a jihad against President Trump, openly supports violent plots against Jews. Nation of Islam leader. Louis Farrakhan has openly spewed venom against America’s Jews. Farrakhan leveled more vitriolic attacks against Jews when he spoke at a Chicago mosque last summer.
This too is sharia.
Muslim Physician and Jewish Patients
The world-famous Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, employed a Muslim resident physician, Lara Kollab, 27. In 2012 she had tweeted that she would give Yahood (Jews) the wrong medicine. She has been fired from her job at the Clinic. She started at the Clinic on July 1, 2018 and when her tweets were discovered in September she was immediately fired. Link
A full list of her hate can be seen here. Lara Kollab has called for violence against Jews, spread anti-Semitism, trivialized the Holocaust, defended the terror organization Hamas and supported terrorists on Twitter. She has also compared Israel to Nazi Germany, spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and hatred of Israel, and accused Israel of exploiting the Holocaust.
This hate was allowed on Twitter for years. Six years later it has been expunged.
This is sharia.
World Hijab Day
In one of the most pathetic and destructive displays of virtue signaling, non-Muslim women are once again being urged to wear the garment of oppression, subjugation and misogyny. While women are fighting and dying for their most basic rights, especially those in Iran, left-wing morons are working to impose the misogyny of sharia.
The woman who wears a hijab represents that she is fully committed to sharia and its political consequences. The hijab is a symbol that says to non-Muslims that they are kafirs (unbelievers, infidels). For 1400 years there’s been jihad against the kafirs…a history of annihilation, death and suffering. The bulk of the Koran is about the kafir and that they are to be destroyed.
Yet the liberal fools and many Christian churches believe girls of all faiths, backgrounds, and ethnicities should “voice their choice” of wearing the headscarf for 24 hours on February 1, 2019 in solidarity with Muslim women across the world. Yes, they’re calling for solidarity with the most evil political movement in the world. Chapter 48, verse 29 of the Koran says, “Mohammed is the apostle of Allah, those who follow him are merciful to one another, but ruthless to the unbelievers.”
This is sharia!
The Bush and Obama administrations embraced the Muslim Brotherhood, and HAMAS-CAIR. Some of these Muslims’ advocates have been issued top secret security clearances. They have been privy to, and helped to write policy and training for many federal agencies. Purchase and read See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad, by Philip Haney.
Sharia is in every facet of American society, from politics to football, including Kaepernick’s kneeling during the Anthem. Islam is being taught in government schools while Judaism and Christianity are banned.
The goal is an Islamic America and sharia is the pathway.

Let’s get the facts straight.
Fact: It is not Jefferson’s Koran. It is Mohammed’s Koran.
Fact: Jefferson owned a Koran to understand and defeat the Islamic Barbary Pirates. How many members of Congress have read the Koran & Sunna from cover to cover or have any idea what is written on these pages?
Fact: We have evidence of our forefathers’ reference to the Koran: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, March 28, 1786
Fact: Tlaib is swearing her oath on a Koran in which over 20% written in Medina is about violent jihad.
Fact: Tlaib is swearing her oath on a Koran that has 17% of its text from Mohammed’s time in Medina devoted to Jew hatred.
Fact: Tlaib is swearing her oath on a Koran that says that Muslims are superior to all and the non-Muslim (Kafir) is lower than animals. It also says a Muslim is not the friend of a Kafir.
Fact: Tlaib is swearing her oath on a Koran that says wives can be beaten.
Fact: Tlaib is disingenuous when she says ““I believe in secular government…“ According to Islamic doctrine, a Muslim must be governed by the Allah-inspired Sharia, because Kafir (man-made) secular laws are not worth following. So either she is not a good Muslim or she is using taqiyya, sacred deception, to advance Islam.
Fact: Tlaib is swearing her oath on a book that declares our U.S. Constitution is not the highest law of the land.
In short, Rashida Tlaib, by swearing her oath on a Koran, commits an act of sedition.
