SHARIA VS CONSTITUTION

[behead-those-who-insult-islam-london.jpg]

It is coming. A showdown in America, not some wild west show, but a real showdown, just like Europe is facing, with Islam. Islam is not a religion but our government is treating it as such. Islam is a theocracy that governs citizens way of life, in the same way the Constitution is the light that governs America (when Congress is not in session). The forces of Islam in America are pushing the boundaries, in the hopes of establishing a Sharia based caliphate in America, and undoing western civilization. For those of you who still do not understand or believe that Islam is a threat, I am going to compare Sharia Law to the Constitution. You shall see that the “religion of peace” is really the religion of pieces, where the children blow up so quickly.

Sharia Law is well-documented in the 1,200 page Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law, “The Reliance of the Traveler” by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, and published in the United States by Amana Publications. The Constitution is, well, the Constitution:

LEGISLATIVE POWERS

US Constitution
Article I - All legislative Powers shall be vested in the Congress.

Sharia Law
The source of legal rulings for all acts of those who are morally responsible is Allah. (a1.1) It is not a sin to comply with man-made laws that require buying auto insurance or having a photo ID because “the authorities are responsible for the sin, not the individual forced to comply.” (w42.3 and w50.4).

POWER TO DECLARE WAR

US Constitution
Section 8 – Powers of Congress include to levy taxes, to make laws, and to declare war.

Sharia Law
It is obligatory to obey the commands and interdictions of the caliph or his representative in everything that is lawful, even if he is unjust . . because the purpose of his authority is Islamic unity, which could not be realized if obeying him were not obligatory. (o25.5) The caliph or his representative have the duty of undertaking jihad if their territory borders on enemy lands, of dividing the spoils of battle, and of remitting a fifth for “deserving recipients.” (o25.9(8)) Jihad is obligatory for everyone when the enemy has surrounded the Muslims. (o9.3) It is permissible in jihad to cut down the enemy’s trees and destroy their dwellings. (o9.1)

PRESIDENT (CALIPH)

US Constitution
Article II, Section I -- Qualifications of a President – He must be a natural born citizen, thirty-five years old, and a resident for fourteen years. The President is elected by ballot by the people (via the Electors) and shall serve for no more than 2 four-year terms.
No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

Sharia Law
A caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave, a male, of the Quraysh tribe, etc. (o25.0)
The Caliph appoints a group to select his successor among themselves. There is no a term of office. However, the caliphate of someone who seizes power is considered valid, even though his act of usurpation is disobedience, in view of the danger from anarchy and strife that would otherwise ensue. (o25.4(3))

REMOVAL OF GOVERNMENT OFFICERS

US Constitution
Section 4 – The President and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from office if found guilty of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Sharia Law
(No provision for removal from office.)

LEGAL AUTHORITY

US Constitution
Article VI – This Constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be made under it shall be the supreme law of the land, and judges in every state shall be bound by them. Senators and Representatives, legislative officers, all executive and judicial officers both of the United States and the several states shall be bound by a Oath or Affirmation to support the Constitution.

Sharia Law
The source of legal rulings for all acts of those who are morally responsible is Allah. (a1.1)

CIVIL AND RELIGIOUS RIGHTS

US Constitution
Amendment 1 – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press, or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for redress of grievances.

Sharia Law
Non-Muslims are obliged to comply with Islamic rules that pertain to the safety and indemnity of life, reputation, and property. Non-Muslims are forbidden to openly display wine or pork, recite their scriptures, or make a public display of feast days or funerals. Non-Muslims are forbidden to build new churches. A non-Muslim may not enter a mosque without permission. The protection for non-Muslims is withdrawn if a non-Muslim commits adultery with a Muslim woman or marries her, leads a Muslim away from Islam, kills a Muslim, or says anything derogatory about Allah, the Prophet, or Islam. (o11.5 through o11.10)

US Constitution
Amendment 2 – The right of people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Sharia Law
It is a condition that someone buying weapons be of a people who are not at war with Muslims. (k1.2(f)) Enormities (sins) include selling weapons to non-Muslims who will use them against us. (w52.1(192))

US Constitution
Amendment 3 – No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner prescribed by law.

Sharia Law
(Not covered.) However, the Pact of Omar (636 AD) imposed on Christians in Syria, “We shall keep our gates wide open for passersby and travelers. We shall give board and lodging to all Muslims who pass our way for three days.”

US Constitution
Amendments 4 – 8 – These amendments prohibit unreasonable searches, require due process according to the law, provide for confrontation of witnesses, impose jury trial on all matters involving over $20, and prohibit excessive fines and cruel and unusual punishments. Amendment 14 provides for equal protection of the laws for all citizens.

Sharia Law
No testimony may be made by people who have lowly jobs, such as a street sweeper or a bath house attendant, or non-Muslim. (o24.2-3) Testimony regarding fornication or sodomy requires four male eye-witnesses to the act. (o24.9) A woman’s testimony is worth only half that of a man. (o24.10) (There is no provision for a jury trial under Sharia Law.) Cruel and unusual Islamic punishments include 1) stoning for adultery (o12.2); 2) scourging 40 lashes with hands, shoes, ends of clothes, or a whip for drunkenness (o16.3); 3) severing the right hand for theft of over $36 and the left foot for a repeat offense (o14.1); and 4) death for apostasy from Islam. (o8.2) Indemnity for accidentally killing a male Muslim is 100 camels or 4,235 grams of gold. (Current value: $144,000.) Indemnity for killing a woman is half that of a man, for killing a Jew or a Christian is one-third of the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid for a killing Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth of that of a Muslim. The indemnity for causing a miscarriage is one slave. (o4.9) There is no indemnity for a killing a non-Muslim at war with Muslims, an apostate, or someone sentenced to death by stoning. (o14.17) Jews and Christians are subject to a “poll tax” not less than 1 dinar (Current value: $144) per adult male per year. No maximum is stipulated. (o11.4) This is a penalty for remaining in their ancestral religion instead of embracing the “religion of truth.” (o9.8) A husband may beat a “rebellious” wife for 1) not allowing immediate sexual intercourse when he asks for it, at home, and if she can physically endure it; 2) answering him coldly; or 3) being averse when she was previously kind. (m5.1 and m10.12) The only limitation is that he may not break her bones, wound her, or cause bleeding.

US Constitution
Amendment 13 Slavery and involuntary servitude are abolished.

Sharia Law
The section on Slavery (k32.0) is not translated into English. The provisions remain in Arabic. The editor of “The Reliance of the Traveler” claims that these provisions are no longer applicable, yet they remain in there in the text of Sharia Law. Elsewhere, the manual states, “Originally the status of slave was simply the outcome of having been taken as a prisoner of war. A captive who could not buy his own freedom by means of ransom remained in the possession of the captor until he had earned his freedom by work or until he was granted liberty by his master.” (w13.1)

US Constitution
Amendment 21 repealed “prohibition,” thereby allowing manufacture, sale, and transport of alcoholic beverages.

Sharia Law
It is unlawful to sell grapes to someone who will make wine from them. (k4.9) “Allah cursed whoever drinks wine, gives it to others to drink, sells it, buys it, presses it for another, transports it, receives it, or eats its price.” Enormities (sins) include drinking wine in any form or other intoxicant, even if only a drop as in medicine; pressing out the juice to make wine or other intoxicant; carrying it for purposes of drinking, or having it carried; serving it to others or having it served; selling it; buying it; having it bought or sold; consuming proceeds from selling it; or keeping wine or other intoxicant. (o16.6 and w52.1(350-361))

My fellow Americans, the next time someone says we need to be more tolerant, more understanding, more accepting of Islam and Sharia Law, ask them, “What part(s) of the Constitution are you willing to abandon in order to accommodate Sharia Law?” Then do not say a word. He/she that speaks first loses. If they try to wander off course, change the subject or insult you, simply restate the question and wait. This is too important a fight to just walk away.

Why haven't you chosen those parts that are really contributing to order in a society. It is very easy to criticize something as old as Sharia law. It was probably very applicable at the time.
The way you are trying to present Islam is very wrong. People like you, just like those similar to you from other religions, including Islam, are those that are at the base of all misunderstandings and consequently the problems we are facing. You should not spread hatred, because doing so you are not better than those pledging Jihad. Islam is a beautiful religion. It is preaching love, respect, tolerance peace. Those that deviate from it and find in it excuses to kill innocent people are very sick. But they are very few in number when compared to the total number of Muslims that it is really stupid to look at Islam through them. I am not looking at Christians through the bad things the Church has done. You are very short-sighted, and I hope you'll find strength to work on yourself for your own sake. Your life will be much better if you get rid of the hatred that is consuming you. I invite you to Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, will give you my contact information if you want, and will gladly show you all beautiful faces of Islam. I am very much against terrorism, but, please, do not confuse them with Muslims and Islam, because that is very wrong.
Best regards from Sarajevo
