What Sharia Prescribes: Same as the Ten Commandments?

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, of the “Ground Zero mosque”, once again wrote a deeply inaccurate article reprimanding Americans for their supposedly “right-wing caricature” of Islamic law, sharia, which he insists is not a threat to American law. In his recent article “The silly American fear of sharia law”, he denied that sharia is incompatible with US laws and the constitution. Oh, really?

    Any U.S. Politician of any kind that works to promote Sharia Law should be charged with Sedition and as a Traitor to the U.S. Constitution . Sharia is incompatible with the Constitution, current ethics, morality, decency and way of life of the Western Culture.

    The seven commandments underlying our Western legal systems are in danger of being washed away in a tsunami of ignorance and rampant secularism. This mad rush into the abyss demands that we throw out the baby along with the bathwater. So we destroy those visual reminders of its origins.

    A few years ago — after a heart attack — I went to the synagogue to say a prayer of gratitude. I became absorbed in the gilded lions that were embroidered on the curtain covering the Ark. These ferocious beasts were there again at the top of the Ark, guarding the tablets of the 10 commandments.

    They were once a standard feature in the rapidly-vanishing Ashkenazi synagogue. Whether we are conscious of it or not, the visual is there to remind us of long-forgotten memories. Woe betide those who forget.

    Ok. Implement it across the board in San Franciso.

    All I need to know is that thousands of muslims are coming to canada as refugees FROM islam and sharia as well as non-muslims fleeing it.
    Canada only has about 0.003% of the world’s muslims…. so in order to make sure i don’t judge all muslims by the words of a few. I do NOT listen to Imams on the CBC or any of the Liberal MP’s that are muslims.

    Muhammad is the example for islam’s prefect man to emulate.
    Nuff said.
