... is that it's in support of liberty, and against sharia in America ... and it's written by Hasan Mahmud, a Muslim:
[...] Many of us Western Muslims are alarmed by this kind of deception by some of our leaders. We know well that Sharia law legitimizes violence in the name of divinity. We are sad to see countless open and secret Sharia courts across the West -- now they are trying to do it in America. TAM (The American Muslims) created the first blueprint of a USA-Sharia court system back in 1993 in the model of Native American courts.More here.
Sharia law is more than stoning and amputation. It sanctions other unjust laws even more devastating. Sharia law destroys family peace by setting brothers against sisters with its codification of half-inheritance. It does the same by setting husbands against wives by establishing the husband's absolute control over his wife's person and sexuality. That is why there is no such thing as the rape of a wife in Sharia law. Sharia law allows child-marriage without caring what the husbands do to the unfortunate little "brides."
Sharia law is a threat to world peace because it thrives on hating others. By dehumanizing others, it blocks us from sharing this planet joyfully with our fellow human beings. It gives us a false sense of superiority and provokes us to govern the world, whereas in the last thousand years our countries have invented almost nothing. Many Sharia supporters wouldn't live a day without the gifts of the West. Still, they come here to enjoy the freedom of the liberal democratic system -- while they seek to destroy the same freedom and democratic system.
His warning for the West is clear ... "This Trojan horse (sharia) of the West is not a benign legal system; but a malignant provocation to establish global Mullahcracy." And his take home message might just surprise you. It's his last sentence in his final paragraph ... and it has to do with imams.
