Islamist On Hannity: U.S. Will Fall to ShariaTopics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Islam a religion of peace, you say. Muslims just want to be Americans and participate in the American way of life, you say.
Perhaps you might want to rethink that:
A Muslim cleric Wednesday said Egypt will be ruled by Sharia law and eventually the United States -- and the whole world -- will fall to radical Islam. In a heated interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Sheik Anjem Choudary also called for the destruction of Israel, saying the Jewish state needs to be "repelled" for what it has done to Muslims.Read it all.
"Sharia will come and it will remove the corruption of democracy, and freedom, and all of your exploitation," Choudary said. "You are worried because you know Islam is coming to your backyard."
So, you say this guy's just an extremist, that he doesn't speak for the majority of American Muslims ... it's only those "tiny number of extremists," right?
You guessed it ... think again. A 2008 Pew Report shows (okay, it's a bit dated, but it's the latest one I could find) that half of American Muslims think the Koran is the "literally true word of God" ... which means that at least half of American Muslims, when push comes to shove, believe or are sympathetic with the aims of Sharia. And in fact, the majority of Muslims around the world support sharia law.
