Terror's Secret Weapon: Shariah Law
From Townhall ~ There is a creeping menace in America today: Muslim radicals are using liberal courts and activists, as well as U.S. businesses, to implement Islamic law that runs counter to every freedom our Constitution protects.
Liberals love to ridicule Americans who warn of Islamic infiltration in the U.S. as fear-mongers, xenophobes, bigots, racists or whatever usual epithet pops into their left-wing minds.
Whether we are talking about the efforts of the Muslim Brotherhood to make inroad in the United States or the goal of the Islamists to implement Shariah Law in the West, the noise from the Left is always the same: ridicule and marginalize.
Well, this message is aimed straight at the minds of those thinking Americans who can and will make a difference and are willing to stand up for our republic: Islamic radicals want to see Shariah Law as the governing law of the United States and the rest of the West.
They will not be satisfied until all of us are under their dictatorial thumb. This is why you'll read the truth about the goals of the radicals in the pages of Townhall Magazine and not in the liberal media -- or even the pages of other conservative publications that bury their heads in the sand.
And you'll, of course, never hear the truth about it from the Obama administration. In fact, the Obama White House stands with those who criticize Americans worried about Shariah Law.
In 2009, Dalia Mogahed, an Obama administration advisor on Muslim affairs, told a British television audience that the West misunderstands Shariah, calling its perceptions of Islamic tenants "oversimplified."
Our April cover story, "The Shariah Threat," exposes the efforts of Islamists to impose Shariah Law, including their use of U.S. courts, politicians, media and businesses.
Why is Islam sacred in the U.S. while other religions are frequently lampooned in cartoons and ridiculed in "art"?
Are we, indeed, as some experts believe, already embracing de facto Shariah Law?
Janet Levy, a prolific writer on Islam and national security, says: "Our uniquely American virtues of tolerance and freedom have worked against us to produce intolerance and oppression. This has led to the stealthy introduction of Shariah Law and a climate in which criticisms of Mohammed and Islam are no longer possible without serious repercussions."
