A Muslim warns America, condemns sharia law!

Dr Hawkins is a moderate Muslim, who I admire.  He speaks against the unjust Sharia Law and the radical Muslims.  Not only are Christians and Jews targeted by the radical Muslims, but also the moderate Muslims are targeted by the radicals.   This article also reminds me, there are very good moderate Muslims out there and it appears Dr Hawkins is one of them.

Dear Leonard,

We’re often asked, “are there Muslims who oppose sharia law and jihad, and if so, where are they?”

One of the more outspoken and courageous reformist Muslims in America is Dr. Tawfik Hamid. Dr. Hamid, once a member of a terrorist organization and author of Inside Jihad, brings unique insights to the issue of radical Islam—as evidenced by his recent opinion column below.

This is why we added Dr. Hamid’s perspective, and his compelling journey from terrorism to reformer, to this year’s National Conference & Legislative Briefing.

Fighting Sharia Law MUST be a Strategic Objective for the US

By Tawfik Hamid

Some see Sharia Law (Islamic Law) as a threat to human rights, discriminating specifically against women, gays, and non-Muslims. This limited understanding of Sharia may lead to a half-hearted response rather than a serious fight for the US's strategic interests. It is, however, difficult for an honest person to deny the fact that Sharia Law is a threat to human rights for the real threat of Sharia goes far beyond infringements of human rights.

Sharia Law was the main topic for discussion in several debates in the US and other western countries.

Careful observation of our modern history reveals that the US has had major troubles from all Muslim countries or systems that have implemented Sharia Law.

The following is a list of Islamic countries and societies that have implemented Sharia Law as the main law of the land:

1-Saudi Arabia
3-Afghanistan under the Taliban regime
Without a single exception, the US has suffered major troubles from all of these countries.

For example, Saudi Arabia produced Bin Laden who led Al-Qaeda and attacked the US on September 11 2001 which dragged the US into very costly confrontations. These confrontations have cost the US economy trillions of dollars and thousands of lives. In fact, 15 of the 19 hijackers of the planes that attacked the twin towers on September 11 were Saudis. Moreover, petrodollars coming out of Sharia-ruled Saudi Arabia have been used to support Islamists in Egypt and other Islamic countries thus promoting more Islamic-based hatred and animosity toward the US.

Another example of the outworking of Sharia is the Iranian Islamic regime that has shown aggression toward the US and currently aims at creating a nuclear bomb that threatens world stability and security. The relationship between the US and Iran declined dramatically after the Iran regime adopted Sharia Law following the Islamic revolution in 1979.

Afghanistan under Sharia Law created a system extremely hostile toward the West, including the US. The Sharia-ruled Taliban adopted Al-Qaeda fighters and caused - and is still causing -major troubles for the US. In fact, the Islamist threat that originated in Afghanistan has also affected nearby countries such as Pakistan. The honeymoon that existed temporarily between the US and the Taliban during the confrontation with the Russians has ended and the true nature of the Taliban as an anti-American regimen has been exposed.

Furthermore, the relations between Sudan and the US have significantly declined after the implementation of Sharia in the country.

Somalia has shown animosity toward the US and has become a breeding ground for terrorists since it became controlled by the Al-Shabbab Islamic movement that implemented Sharia Law in the land. Several US Muslim citizens also became radicalized in Somalia after Sharia dominated it.

If we compare the above countries to Islamic countries that did not make Sharia Law the main law of the land - such as Turkey, Qatar, UAE, Tunisia, Malaysia, and Indonesia - we notice that the former countries did not cause as much trouble for the US as the Sharia-ruled countries did. This is unlikely to be just a coincidence.

Sharia causes animosity toward the US (as a symbol of the highest power of western civilization) in several ways as we see below:

1- Sharia Law creates hatred toward the values of freedom and equality that are the founding principles of the US. For example, Sharia allows beating women, polygamy, and paedophilia. Additionally, it promotes killing apostates, gays, and adulteries. Islamists who adopt these Sharia values cannot have anything but hatred toward the countries that promotes freedom and liberty.

2- Sharia induces a notion of the supremacy of Islam above all non-Muslims. Several Quranic verses have been used to promote this principle of supremacy of Muslims and Islam (See: Quran [i] 48:28). Also, Sharia rules necessitate that Non-Muslims in Muslim society MUST pay a special form of Tax of humiliation 'Jizia' to the Muslim rulers. Non-Muslims-according to Sharia- MUST by disgraced [ii] during paying such taxes. The psychological contradiction in the mind of Islamists between their sense of the supremacy of Islam, and the reality of their weakness and inferiority, creates frustrations that lead to a desire to destroy or erase the world power (i.e. the US and other western countries) that 'deprives' them of their superiority.

3- Sharia principles teach the values of Jihad to spread the religion and subjugate non-Muslims to Islamic laws. With no single exception, all schools of Islamic Jurisprudence (Shafeii, Hanbali, Maleki, and Hanafi)-until today-promote that Muslims MUST declare war on and fight Non-Muslims until they subjugate to Islam. The integration of the previous 3 factors can explain to some extent the observed positive correlation between implementing Sharia and creating hostility toward the US and other western countries.

To conclude; The trouble that has faced the US from countries that adopted Sharia Law in the last few decades, and the enormous costs that were paid by the US in these confrontations, should make the US consider Sharia not only an infringement to Human Rights but, more importantly, a serious threat to its national security and strategic interests.

[i] Quran 48:28 It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over (superior to) all religion: and enough is Allah for a Witness.

[ii] Quran 9:29 Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (Islam) of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

The Apostle, St. John tells us exactly how to recognize the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood. He says "as for them, they are of the world - and the world listens to them because they speak the language of the world. But we are children of God and those who know God: LISTEN TO US. Those who are not of God REFUSE TO LISTEN TO US. That is how we can tell the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood." ~1 John 4:6 [The "us" to whom St. John refers are the Apostles, and their successors the Bishops.]

Prayer to avoid the Sin of PRIDE:
“Oh My Jesus help me to avoid the sin of pride when I speak in Your Name. Forgive me if I ever belittle anyone in Your holy Name. Help me to listen Jesus when Your Voice is spoken and fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can discern the truth of Your Word when You call out to mankind. Amen.”

A prayer of St. Teresa of Avila:
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in "wedding garments." Amen.

“My children, let your speech be chosen with great care—it must be a light in the world. Know and believe that all you say has repercussions in time and eternity. Therefore, choose your words with wisdom and prudence, choosing to remain silent rather than fill the air with useless chatter or worse, gossip or virulent speech. Let your speech be a perfect mirror of your peaceful heart, a heart firmly grounded in the love of God and in complete trust in His goodness. Silence is often the more virtuous path. Bridle your tongue and you will be working for peace in the world.”

In the Name of Jesus I renounce as lies all thoughts that enter my mind from the evil one who accuses. By the authority of Jesus, I command them to leave me. I consecrate my mind to God for transformation into His Thoughts for my protection, salvation and His glory.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

Just a Note:

Through the grace of God and many prayers, I survived a double surgery (with cancer) in the fall of 2008. Since then has becoming increasingly important to me to enhance my prayer life. I have taken on the task of praying for strangers and those with little hope and much adversity. To that end, I've also begun (July '09), to make rosaries and related items to put prayer into the hands of as many as I can that will PRAY for others.

The world is at the precipice ... we need to TAKE ACTION ... NOW. Time for fence sitting is quickly coming to an end. We all need to do what ever we can in the way of PRAYER & PENANCE to beg God's Grace upon humanity that we may shake away this sinfulness and pride to get back on the road that leads to heaven and our Glorious Triune God!

After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if satan's temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he'll have an incentive to leave you alone.
~St. Ignatius of Loyola
