Confronting Sharia Law in America
US Leaders Should Ban Sharia Law And Deport Muslims Who Practice It
The threat of Islam as a dominant force in America is a threat to national security and the leadership in the United States should rethink their appeasing strategies in dealing with Islam with strident measures in order to protect the country and its citizens. Islam's sharia law places all peoples under the religious law of Islam and it is the mandate of Islam to bring the people of the world into submission to sharia law. This premise is incompatible with the Constitutional Republic form of government in the U.S. American leadership should take seriously the strategies of Islam to take over the nation and crush it before it happens.
Many would try to justify allowing Islam to prosper and grow in the United States because of the First Amendment guarantee of religious freedom. When a so-called religion, however, uses this freedom to attempt to take over this nation and establish Islamic laws that are contrary to the Constitution of the United States, this religion must be considered a threat to the nation. Leading Muslim clerics in the United States along with radical Muslim movements such as the Muslim Brotherhood and most Moslem organizations already planted in America have embarked upon a strategy to resettle the country through establishing Islamic Centers that administer their own "religious" laws.
Shutting down the Islamic revolution in the U.S. is difficult, especially in these days of political correctness where concerns about an Islamic enemy are met with harsh criticism and accusations of bigotry and prejudice. But one leader has blazed the trail of impeding Islam in his own country. Australian Prime Minister John Howard recently angered some Australian Moslems with his support of spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. He said, "Immigrants, not Australians, must adapt. Take it or leave it. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture." Howard had Moslem leaders pledge an oath of loyalty to Australia while making it clear that extremists would face a crackdown.
Howard's likely successor, Treasurer Peter Costello, took it a step further. He said, "I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing people in Australia: one the Australian law and another Islamic law that is false; If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a better option." American leaders would do well to follow Australia's lead before an American manifestation occurs of the prophecy of Jeremiah 51:14, "I shall fill you with men as with locusts and they shall lift up a battle cry against you."
