ANTI-SHARIA LAWS: BIGOTRY OR A NECESSARY LINE-IN-THE-SAND?

NYTIMES OP-ED: "Don’t Fear Islamic Law in America"

MORE than a dozen American states are considering outlawing aspects of Shariah law. Some of these efforts would curtail Muslims from settling disputes over dietary laws and marriage through religious arbitration, while others would go even further in stigmatizing Islamic life: a bill recently passed by the Tennessee General Assembly equates Shariah with a set of rules that promote “the destruction of the national existence of the United States.”

Supporters of these bills contend that such measures are needed to protect the country against homegrown terrorism and safeguard its Judeo-Christian values. The Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has said that “Shariah is a mortal threat to the survival of freedom in the United States and in the world as we know it.”

This is exactly wrong. The crusade against Shariah undermines American democracy, ignores our country’s successful history of religious tolerance and assimilation, and creates a dangerous divide between America and its fastest-growing religious minority.

... Anti-Shariah legislation fosters a hostile environment that will stymie the growth of America’s tolerant strand of Islam.

THIS LEFTIST GETS IT EXACTLY BASS ACKWARDS.

OUTLAWING SHARIA IN OUR COMMUNAL CIVIC LIFE IS EXACTLY WHAT THE ISLAMIC COMMUNITY HAS TO ACCEPT IF THEY WANT TO ASSIMILATE TO US.

IF WE WANT A "TOLERANT STRAND OF ISLAM" TO GROW, THEN WE HAVE TO BE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT WE WILL ACCEPT - AND WHAT WE WON'T ACCEPT - AND THEN THEY HAVE TO ACCOMMODATE US.

POSTMODERN LEFTISTS WANT US TO ADAPT TO THEM.

THIS ANTI-WEST LEFTIST ATTITUDE - AN INTEGRAL FACET OF POSTMODERN LEFTISM - IS EXACTLY WHY EVEN LIBERAL ACTOR JOHN CLEESE NOW SAYS THAT LONDON IS NO LONGER A ENGLISH CITY.

THIS IS WHY BRITAIN AND SWEDEN AND NORWAY AND MANY OTHER WESTERN NATIONS ARE INCREASINGLY SUBJECT TO CREEPING SHARIA AND ISLAMIZATION AND DHIMMITUDE.

ANTI-SHARIA LAWS ARE AN INVALUABLE LINE IN THE SAND

Islam knows that its time is short, and is pulling out all stops. The future doesn't belong to Islam. Allah is a dead god, and the Quran is a dead book. But that just makes them more desperate. It's they who have Islamophobia, namely, fear of having to accept that Islam is kaput. That's why we must be all the more vigilant and keep watch on their shenanigans.

Scope the Muslim world fast and free with the Historyscoper and arm your mind:
