UI – Part 130 – Quran – Political, Military, Legal
Quran – Political, Military, Legal
A few days ago I met a man who has a passion about Islam, not in a positive way, he feels that it is an encroachment on not only the freedoms we enjoy in America, but freedom that anyone would enjoy when human rights are properly considered. He was knowledgeable and objective. His conclusions, after much study, were that Islam is Ideology and not Religion. He gave me a book entitled Shariah – The Threat to America (An Exercise in Competitive Analysis – Report of Team BII), by the Center for Security Policy, 2010, published by the Center for Security Policy. Washington,DC.
Newt Gingrich provided a quote/endorsement for the back cover of the book that reads as follows, “the Team BII Report is a warning of danger every American should read.”
The legal-political-military doctrine that is Islam, or within Islam is known as Islamic law, or Shariah, is seen as a threat to our Nation.
Quoting from the book (page 222):
“Even a fairly superficial reading of the Quran and other primary source documents of shariah reveals that it is a political-military-legal doctrine, rather than a religion as defined by the American standards…. (American standards are principles of liberty that are rooted in mutual toleration.) The prominent Islamic scholar Abdul Maududi concurs with this assessment, saying: “but the truth is that Islam is not the name of a ‘Religion ,’ nor is Muslim the title of a ‘Nation.’ In reality, Islam is a revolutionary ideology and programme which seeks to alter the social order of the whole world and rebuild it in harmony with its own tenants and ideals.”
“… In the United States, liberty was never intended to tolerate the intolerant and its citizens were never intended to tolerate totalitarian doctrines….. Totalitarian doctrines are in direct conflict with the stated purpose of American government “to secure these rights (endowed by their Creator).” (Page 222)
“Shariah is, moreover, a doctrine that mandates the rule of Allah over all aspects of society. Specifically, in contrast – and fundamentally at odds – with the Jeffersonian principle of religious freedom, shariah holds that God did not create the mind free, but in subservience to the will of Allah (as detailed in shariah). The condition of human beings is submission to Allah, not freedom.” (pg 222)
Need I say more.
