UI – Part 220 – Islamic Unity – Sharia
Islamists everywhere are united by a single goal: the imposition of Shari’a. However it must be noted there is more than one view of Sharia, or Islamic Law.

Washington Based Islamic Organizations – Marginalizing Competing Viewpoints
In summary Islamic Organizations, almost all having bases in Washington DC, pursue programs to implement Sharia or Islamic Law throughout the World. Clearly the USA is no exception. With Federal Government and Media ignorance and overly PC posturing towards Muslims and the more extreme authoritarian Islamists with access to money, the barrier to creeping Sharia has been lowered significantly. We must thank Congressman Peter King and Allen West, and others for speaking out with warnings. To Understand Islam is to know the greatest enemy towards freedom.
The theme, “the jihadist enterprise transcends all borders”
Quoting: “By championing Arab Islamists as legitimate voices and partners, these supposedly “moderate” Muslim organizations strive to make them palatable to Washington and the public at large. Simultaneously, in the words of Essam Abdallah[ii], they are ‘waging … political and media wars on the liberal Arabs and Middle Eastern figures and groups in America,’ so as to marginalize competing viewpoints.”
Economic and Social Decay
Quoting: “Unfortunately, the rise of Middle Eastern Islamists will only embolden their brethren in the U.S., particularly if CAIR, ISNA, and others play a role in Arab developments. There is, however, a potential silver lining. Past experience demonstrates that when Islamists take the reins of a nation, it inevitably succumbs to political, economic, and social decay that is impossible to conceal. If America’s Islamists wish to stamp their names on these approaching Arab calamities, so be it. The disasters will open more eyes to the ultimate trajectory of their plans for the United States, thus improving our chances of defeating them.”
Dr. Essam Abdallah wrote in Feb 2012[iii] : “The most dramatic oppression of the region’s civil societies and the Arab Spring is not by means of weapons, or in the Middle East. It is not led by Gaddafi, Mubarak, Bin Ali, Saleh, or Assad. It is led by the powerful Islamist lobbies in Washington DC. People may find my words curious if not provocative. But my arguments are sharp and well understood by many Arab and Middle Eastern liberals and freedom fighters. Indeed, we in the region, who are struggling for real democracy, not for the one time election type of democracy, have been asking ourselves since January 2011 as the winds of Arab spring started blowing, why isn’t the West in general and the United States Administration in particular clearly and forcefully supporting our civil societies and particularly the secular democrats of the region? Why were the bureaucracies in Washington and in Brussels partnering with Islamists in the region and not with their natural allies – the democracy promoting political forces?”
Matthew Staver, Chairman, at Liberty Council in a Liberty Counsel Action notice wrote, “There is a “civilization jihad” taking place in our borders by Muslim extremists and their sympathizers – and many of our lawmakers are looking past this dangerously increasing threat in the name of “political correctness.”[iv]
Beware of the weeds that are being allowed to grow by the gardener Obama in the Edens of Washington, DC yielding bitter fruits of Islamic Law.
Grace and Peace.
