SHARIA LAW... IN OUR FUTURE?
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
I was reading yesterday about the close call the UK had in rounding up the alleged kidnapper and beheading plot and the poll that 40% of the younger Muslims wanted Sharia law. Last night on my show I was talking with Dr. Harvey Cushner about the push of Sharia law by Muslim radicals here and abroad and how frightening and horrific this really is!!! There are Muslims worldwide who think Sharia Law is the will of Allah and that is the key goal. Most Islamic countries live under Sharia law and this is even being pushed now throughout Europe, Canada and yes….the USA.
Most of us don’t even know what Sharia law is other than perhaps a more rigid and literal sense of the law for Muslim countries. Here are just a few facts taken from Sharia law. Americanthinker.com Gives us the 10 facts taken straight from sharia law and backed up by Muslim Holy Books. They back up their statements referencing all kinds of scriptures from the Quran. 10. Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers should be whipped. 9. Islam allows husbands to hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives. 8. Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge—physical eye for physical eye.
7. Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off. 6. Islam commands that Highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated. 5. Islam commands that homosexuals must be executed. 4. Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped and adulterers to be stoned to death. 3. Islam orders death for Muslim and possible death for non—Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran and even sharia itself. 2. Islam orders apostates to be killed. 1. Islam commands offensive and aggressive and unjust jihad.
Our legal system has been based on a belief in the value of human life, worth under God and the 10 commandments. Someone committing a sin in someone else’s eyes is not a death sentence or crime. We have a system, thank God based on acknowledging everyone’s human rights not ancient traditions and opinions representing oppression against certain questionable behaviors or even against women in general!
One would think that pressure to put anything so extreme and hateful sounding as the tenets of Sharia law into the framework of a western society would be unheard of…..wrong!!! Dr. Harvey Cushner last night on my show reminded us all that France and other countries in Europe, along with chunks of Canada are already caving in to the campaigning and pressure by many Muslims to have Sharia law court representation, thus the split personality and conflict within several cultures now. You think even the notion of separate Sharia courts or rules for Muslims sounds ridiculous then how come Harvey was telling me about some banks in our country already offering home loans without interest to Muslims because allegedly paying interest is a sin of some kind.
Now that I think of it, I’m sure if I search long enough that somewhere in the Bible it will outlaw me having to pay high gas prices, high restaurant prices and tips and then there are the sinful prices of airline tickets!!! Don’t people know who I am? I am Dr. Laurie Roth, a national radio talk show host. I shouldn’t have to fit into a system of archaic laws and pay for another man’s profit attached to products and services. Everyone adjust to me and my needs!!!
Folks, it is time we try and make better decisions as Americans on how to survive!!! Multiculturism is nice to a point as long as we don’t deny our Christian heritage, culture, main language and solid rock of our legal system!!! Religious and cultural uniqueness is precious except when it expects special treatment from our banks, school curriculum and courts. Some things are not negotiable or open to discussion if we want a free, safe and functioning society. Unless of course, you want to round of robbers of 7/11 stores and crucify them along with killing all gays!!!
Naturally not all Muslims want Sharia law but certainly the folks attacking us do!!! Don’t think for a second some of the well placed sleeper cells and extremists aren’t here in this country playing at the Vegas crap table, using our ACLU, civil liberties, multi cultural obsessions against us.
of course it would be vicious and Islamophobic to even notice that
an Islamic person could be running for office in a time of world war
and violence pushed by Islamic Fundamentalists. Why notice what Sharia
law really says and happen to notice the new poll in the UK among
younger Muslims. 40% want Sharia Law in the UK. Read again just a
few of the known tenants of Sharia law I mentioned above and then
wonder what the real intention may be by way too many Muslim fundamentalists.
