Western Sharia: Muslim supremacists partner with the left

The hard-left in America’s so-called leadership lines up with Islam.  Sharia and Islam are all about control.  Think about it, they desire to control speech, for the most part have little interest in the U.S. Constitution, one of the issues currently missing, (at this time) is the physical brutality. 
Islam teaches there is one law, the will of Allah, the hard-left believes and follows in lemming like fashion a similar delusion the will of Obama, our current Muslim-in-Thief.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message. 

          “…Sharia’s integration into Western law is not apt to be very accommodating for women and non-Muslims…”

Ismail Belghar, a 36-year-old Muslim man living in Australia, assaulted, abducted, and nearly killed his sister-in-law. The victim, a 25-year-old Moroccan named Canan Kokden, had dared to take her older sister, Mrs. B, to the beach without Belghar’s permission. This heinous effrontery was amplified, Belghar later recounted for police, when Mrs. B thereupon “displayed her body,” sustaining the shoulder sunburn that tipped him off.

To Australians, this may have been, well, just a day at the beach. For Belghar, though, it was an “abhorrent” offense against sharia, Islam’s legal code and comprehensive societal framework.

The telltale burn is also starting to show on the West’s shoulders, our courts of law. Australia has not changed Belghar, but the Belghars are changing Australia.

Innately, Islam is not moderate — just ask Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s prime minister, who rejects as “ugly and offensive” the very term “moderate Islam.” Instead, Islam can be moderated, but only by a culture that is self-confident and self-assertive. Alas, that is no longer Western culture. So, the more Muslims immigrate, the less the West is moderating Islam. It is Islam that leaves its mark.

In the usual endearing family way, Belghar telephoned his sister-in-law to convey that he was a tad rankled: “You slut, how dare you take my wife to the beach!” Afterwards, happening upon Ms. Kokden at a shopping mall in New South Wales, he angrily confronted her, slapped her face, and dragged her to the railing of an over-ground parking lot. As he seemed ready to hurl her to the traffic below, her brother (Kokden’s chaperone at the mall) finally stirred himself to intervene, tackling the assailant. Belghar was charged with attempted murder, among other crimes.

As night follows day, Belghar’s defense counsel argued that his client could not get a fair trial because Australians are too Islamophobic: Once informed about the nature of the allegations and the fact that he is a Muslim, jurors would surely leap to the crazy, bigoted conclusion that Belghar was probably guilty of this “honor beating” — which, in fact, he was. Just as he was, precisely, motivated by his Islamic beliefs.

Enter the jurist assigned to the case, the pitch-perfectly named Ronald Solomon. He ruled that, yes, Belghar would be compelled to stand trial, but also that the case would have to be decided by a fact finder Judge Solomon could trust. No doubt you’ll be stunned to learn that this reasonable, objective, and culturally sensitive fact finder turned out to be . . . Judge Solomon himself. After all, ordinary citizens with nothing but their common sense to fall back on lack the juridical acumen needed to weigh what Solomon gently called Belghar’s “attitude,” “based on a religious or cultural bias,” that he had absolute authority over his wife.

This Solomon was splitting not just the baby but the country. As the Australian government contended on appeal, if the judge were correct, an entirely separate system of due process would be required just for Muslims. Every Islamic defendant would be entitled to evade the judgment of the community — that judgment being the whole point of having a judicial system. Muslims would instead get their own system, bringing to bear not the judgment of the community but that of trained lawyers, specially attuned to Islam’s various eccentricities.

This is the dream, of course. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the renowned Muslim Brotherhood jurist and “Arab Spring” maestro, brags that Islam will “conquer” the West. He maintains, however, that the conquest will be achieved not by force of arms but by dawa — Islam’s hyper-aggressive proselytism that pushes on every cultural cylinder. While the ultimate goal is to impose sharia standards on a society, “an immense barrier” can be “traversed,” Qaradawi instructs, if Western nations can be “convinced . . . of our right to live according to our faith — ideologically, legislatively, and ethically.”

There are two very effective ways to go about this. The first is voluntary apartheid: Muslims move into neighborhoods and, once there is a critical mass, live ostentatiously and defiantly by their own mores. Life becomes sufficiently unpleasant for other habitués that they flee. Pressure to moderate and assimilate ebbs. In effect, it is the gradual assertion of Islamic sovereignty over territory — without exploding a bomb or firing a shot.

But not all territory is physical. The law, too, is susceptible to Balkanization, and is thus the second dawatarget. Here, Muslim supremacists find a willing partner: the Lawyer Left, so sympathetic to claims that Western justice systems are inherently unjust, and that the law is an instrument for social change, not an expression of the society’s unifying principles.

Increasingly, sharia-based claims are finding hospitable audiences. The Australian case mirrors one in New Jersey, where a judge denied a protective order to a woman who was being serially raped and beaten by her husband. The judge’s rationale? The couple was Islamic, and under sharia a woman is required to submit to her husband’s authority and sexual demands. It would be unfair, the judge decided, to hold the husband accountable when he was really just adhering to his cultural norms. In Dearborn, Mich., Christian missionaries were arrested on “disorderly conduct” charges after handing out copies of St. John’s gospel on a public street outside an Arab festival. The arrests were outrageous enough, but, worse, the authorities actually went ahead with a prosecution.

To point these cases out, some argue, is to overreact. After all, the system usually works. The Australian case was reversed on appeal, and Belghar ended up pleading guilty to abduction and assault charges. The New Jersey ruling, too, was reversed. And in Dearborn, the missionaries were acquitted. But the vast majority of rulings in lower state courts do not get appealed, and criminal charges are overwhelmingly settled by plea bargains. Generally, it is only trials and appeals that break into the public consciousness. However, trials and appeals, being expensive and burdensome, are rare.

That means we really have no idea how much sharia is seeping into Western law and jurisprudence. A year ago, without breaking a sweat — i.e., by just looking at published appellate decisions — the Center for Security Policy found 50 cases across the United States in which Islamic law factored into rulings. Most of these involved domestic relations — issues involving marriage and child custody. Yet, as a practical matter, there is no telling how extensively sharia has encroached on Western law; we know only that its reach grows as Muslim enclaves multiply.

How could it be otherwise? When not inveighing against the label (some might say the oxymoron) “moderate Islam,” Prime Minister Erdogan can be found bewailing the pressure on Muslims to assimilate in the West. “Assimilation,” the prime minister says, “is a crime against humanity.” For his trouble, Western chancelleries hail Erdogan as a visionary Islamic leader — President Obama’s most trusted friend, with whom he finds so much common ground that Erdogan has become his go-to guy on everything from solving Syria to raising teenage daughters (or, as they are known around the White House, “senior staffers”).

When the administration is not taking its cues from Ankara, it is making common cause with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. This 57-member bloc of Muslim governments (including the “State of Palestine”) sees itself as the global caliphate under construction. Echoing Erdogan — Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood having become two of the OIC’s most influential voices — the OIC’s 2010 report on “Islamophobia”warned (at page 30): “Muslims should not be marginalized or attempted to be assimilated, but should be accommodated. Accommodation is the best strategy for integration.”

Yes, but best for whom? Sharia’s integration into Western law is not apt to be very accommodating for women and non-Muslims.

  1. I posted this quite a while back, is still an appropriate post.

    By Jerome Ennis:

    With the election of Barack Hussein Obama to the U.S. presidency, every leftist and subversive kook fringe in America came out in the open with their subversive views and behavior.

    The Obama election was a green light to the United States of… America’s Domestic Enemies within our own borders and it was also a Green Light to Our Foreign Enemies, Especially in Islamic Countries, that The Radical Muslims Had A Green Light to Overthrow Their Quasi-Democratically Elected Governments and Replace Them With Radical Islamic Law of the Ayatollahs and other Murderous Imams who practice Strict Sharia Laws of The Koran, and that the USA would not lift a hand to defend our allies, and would in fact, arm the revolutionaries.

    The recent Meetings by Obama with China, India, The Russians coupled with Obama’s Earlier Apology Tour To Europe, Africa and The Middle East was a Deal Making Session whereby Obama was Assuring The Egyptian Radicals and Radicals in All Muslim States that they Could Go Ahead and Riot and Overthrow Their Duly Elected Governments and Replace them with Radical Islam and that The USA would not intervene. And, Obama likely has a pact with Russia, China and India that they too, will not intervene. The New USA Agreements with our Enemies is Akin to the so-called Non-Aggression Hitler-Stalin Pact of 1939 where the Fascist Nazis of Germany Made a Deal with the Totalitarian Communists not to interfere with one anothers aim of Expansionism of Their Respective Empires. And, this Deadly Pact Lead Up To WWII.

    (NOTE: sincde I first penned this last year, Obama took Direct Orders from the UN and NATO and attacked Libya by air and supplied intelligence and weapons on the ground for that country to be overthrown, and he totally side tracked the Constitution and bypassed Congress altogether, and got away with, and basically had Leon Panetta tell the U.S. Congress that Obama could do whatever he damned well pleased, and would, if chose to, at least advise them, AFTER THE FACT about his decision, and he believes it is OKAY to do this with orders from the UN and NATO.—This is the First Test of the now and what they found out was, they can get by with it. We no longer have a Representative Constitutional Republic. The New World Order has arrived, and our Congress and Media are not protesting a bit, which should make it obvious is that our Congress is Part of the OWO conspiracy, and it has already been ushered in. And, our own government now is totally FASCISTIC and will enforce any sanctions and destroy anybody in our own government or citizenry who dares to oppose them or criticize them openly.)

    Obama’s Dirty Back Room Deals with our enemies is the reason for this uprising, and you will see these revolutions popping up all over. Not only in the Middle East and Africa but in Central and South America and In Eastern Europe as well.

    NOTE: Obama’s recent trip to Columbia, SC where he also entered us into another Dirty Deal with that criminal enterprise, AKA a government. In the meantime, he continues to not Enforce Illegal Immigration Laws in order to allow as many Anti-American Invaders to invade our country as possible so that when the time is ready, they have a standing Army of Non-Americans already in place. Most of central and south America have been in revolutions for decades and now these revolutionaries move freely about us in the USA and nothing is done, except the Obama Regime sues Arizona, Alabama and any other state if they dare oppose him or to make and enforce their own laws in a responsible manner, while Black Panther and other Terrorist-Criminal Organizations are allowed to threaten and intimidate voters and to put out Death Threats and Bounties while advocating Blood In the Streets of America, and Obama does not lift a finger or say a word. REASON being, he and his regime are behind these Street Gangs, Thugs, Occupy Wall Street, and all the other Radical movements now happening in the United States of America.

    Obama has Entered The USA into Deals With DEVILS, and Most Importantly The Devils of Radical Islam and with The Equally Radical, Chinese Communism.

    Wake Up America, we have an Anti-American and Anti-Western Civilization President Occupying the White House and he is Making Deals With Devils.

  2. We shouldnt eve be worring about Sharia law… Othere foreigners come and dont bring there laws with them No way should we even listen to Muslims… The either go by our laws or dont even get in our courts.. NO way to Sharia law.. That why Obama has to go anad Runmey has to put a stop to them even being illegal in the USA

  3. Sharia law in the US is like a death warrent for all. Judges are using this in some states and they are being blasted too. Obama is very apparent on this subject so all problems from Islam and sharia rest on his shoulders. He is supplying the Muslim Brotherhood with taxpayer money – that alone should be treason – but no they let him. Soon Americans will be the illegals in this country if we don’t vote him out and all his muslim loving cronies.

  4. I hope the nominee Mitt Romney will with Republican nudging make an Amendment to the Constitution that no other laws other than American Law will be allowed to to considered in an Amercan Court and that means Shaia Law, it is a radical Law and should Never be alloed to be considered in an Ameriacan Court. Libera judges could then be removed from office for considering Sharia Law.

  5. Why is Russia troops been send there at the end of the mo.? Why is China buying up land all over the U.S.and even buying oil Co.and our Natural Resources? Our government has to OK all these deals. If you don`t have a gun you better get one and learn how to use it. The day when you going to need it not to far off, .
