Legal Conference on Freedom of Speech and Religion – Creeping Sharia Within the Western Democracies

My note:  Not all Muslims think this way  . . . however . . . it is good to read, observe and make up your own mind.  Religious membership does not a terrorist make . . . intention does.  Article Expert.

This is the first of a series of reports on the International Legal Conference on Freedom of Speech and Religion, which was held on Oct. 27 & 28 in Washington D.C. Originally posted at Gates of Vienna.

Creeping Sharia Within the Western Democracies

A prominent thread was woven throughout last week’s legal conference: the increasing pressure exerted on Western nations by Islamic law, or sharia. Wherever free speech is under threat, much of the impetus for censorship and repression comes from Muslims who wish to restrict the words and actions of others based on the tenets of Islamic law.

It’s true that even if there had been no mass immigration of Muslims into Europe, Canada, and the United States, our governments would still exhibit a tendency to silence dissent. Any truly open discussion about the European Union threatens its very existence, so a push to restrict speech in Europe is inevitable. Similarly, the growing preference among the American intelligentsia for "international law” and other Progressive fads can find little traction as long as public discussion remains frank and open. Pressure will always be brought to bear to mute such discussion, if possible.

However, radical Islam supplies most of the financial backing, street protests, violent intimidation, political initiatives, and legal action aimed at limiting free speech. The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has mounted a major effort against free speech, either directly or through its compliant surrogates in the UN and the EU.

Whether the issue is defamation of Islam, blasphemy towards the Koran, insulting the prophet Mohammed, or other offenses against Muslim customs and doctrine, the attempted piecemeal implementation of sharia lies at the root of the problem.

One reason I decided to report on the conference by topic rather than panel by panel is that various themes reappeared repeatedly on different panels and in different speeches. The most prominent theme of all was sharia.

"Creeping” is the appropriate term for the encroachment of sharia. Citizens in the Western democracies, even in their current apathetic and demoralized condition, would balk at devouring the entire Islamic leviathan. But when the beast is cut up into small chunks and served over an extended period of time, it goes down quite easily.

So let’s take a look at some of the bite-sized pieces of sharia that we are being forced to gag down daily:

1. The "freedom of religion” dodge  (first of five)

The freedom-of-religion tactic is widely used by the OIC in its efforts to ban "defamation” (i.e. criticism) of Islam. According to this reasoning, criticism of a religion interferes with the practice of it, and thus violates the freedom of religion as guaranteed by the UDHR and various national constitutions.

    Not all Muslims are aware of the Jihad/terror imperative. Recent survey results indicate that only 17% of Muslim men have read the Qur’an in their own language.

    The Qur’an tells us that Moe should be emulated.
    33:21. Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad ) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and remembers Allâh much.

    The hadith tells us that he was a terrorist.
    Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), […]

    Terrorism is the standard, not the exception.

        Al-Illah, lit. “the God” Allah aka, Sin, Baal: ancient moon deity worshiped by pagan Arabs.
        99 descriptive names are listed on Islamic web sites and in encyclopedias. One of 360 idols in the Kabaa in the sixth century CE.

        Allah supposedly commanded a pen to write the Qur’an on a sealed tablet, protected and preserved by angels, before the creation of the world. The inclusion of situational scripture giving Muhammad permission to marry his divorced daughter in law and concerning other marital disputes tends to weaken that supposition.

        To learn of Allah’s character, ask what he loves. The clearest answer to that question is found in Surah As-Saff. 61:4. Verily, Allâh loves those who fight in His Cause in rows (ranks) as if they were a solid structure . Other verses, such as 2:195, require some research to discover their true meaning. The “good doers” and “spending” are oblique references to jihad.

        Allah’s imperatives, contained in “clear verses” in Surah al-Anfal & At-Taubah, also provide valuable information about his character.

        According to the pagans, Allah has three daughters but Muhammad denies it, declaring that he has neither wife nor children, describing Jesus as his slave, not his son.

        Allah is merciful and forgiving. If you are killed fighting in his cause, your sins, but not your debts will be forgiven.

        Allah has a preference for predestination, best described in Malik’s Muwatta Book 46, Number 46.1.2, which describes him creating one group of people destined for Paradise and another group destined for the fire.
