Report: Security Pros Say Shariah a Danger to USTopics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
As just reported on Fox News, there' this warning to Barack Obama (from what appears to be a fairly bi-partisan panel) that shariah law is a clear and present danger to the United States:
A panel of national security experts who worked under Republican and Democratic presidents is urging the Obama administration to abandon its stance that Islam is not linked to terrorism, arguing that radical Muslims are using Islamic law to subvert the United States.Continue reading ...
In a report set for release today, the panel states that "it is vital to the national security of the United States, and to Western civilization at large, that we do what we can to empower Islam's authentic moderates and reformers."
The study group, sponsored by the conservative-oriented Center for Security Policy, says in its report that proponents of advancing Islamic law mark the "crucial fault line" in Islam's internal divisions separating truly moderate Muslims, like the late Indonesian President Abdurrahman Wahid, from the large portion of the world's 1 billion Muslims who advocate imposing what they call Shariah law throughout the world.
Mr. Wahid, who died in December, is a widely respected Muslim visionary who promoted pluralism in Indonesia, which has the world's largest population of Muslims.
According to the report, proponents of Shariah are "Muslim supremacists" waging "civilization jihad" along with the Islamist terrorists engaged in violent jihad, like al-Qaida.
The 19-member study group was led by retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence in the George W. Bush administration, and retired Army Lt. Gen. Harry E. Soyster, Defense Intelligence Agency director from 1988 to 1991.
Included in the team of former defense, law enforcement and intelligence officials were Clinton administration CIA Director R. James Woolsey and Andrew C. McCarthy, former assistant U.S. attorney in New York, a career counterterrorism prosecutor during the Clinton administration.
Frank Gaffney, director of the Center for Security Policy, said the Obama administration's policy is based on an incorrect assumption. The Team B report seeks to expose flaws in anti-terror programs, including the policy of not referring to al-Qaida and similar groups as "Islamist" to avoid offending Muslims, he said. (Emphasis added)
Unfortunately, in addressing the report to Barack Obama, the panel is talking to a deaf ear. After all, we're talking about an administration who can't even utter the words "radical Islam" - much less accept that what they're doing is furthering jihadism (another word not in the vocabulary of the Obama administration).

The video provides yet further evidence that, as Anthony G. Martin has warned, the American Leftwing, whether secular or religious, has entered into an unspoken, unofficial alliance with radical extremists within Islam for one purpose only. That purpose is to introduce into American society a way of life, a mindset, that is thoroughly authoritarian.
Meanwhile, France is getting slammed by Hamas for fighting sharia law and the Islamic veil.
