The New York based Islamic Thinkers Society is organizing a huge protest this week in Washington D.C. to support Sharia law in the U.S. and restoration of the Islamic Caliphate. Their web site states: “Our objective is to resume the Islamic way of life to which will fulfill the purpose of the aim. Our objective is to bring back the apparatus that was destroyed in 1924 i.e. Khilafah (Caliphate)”
Islamist rally calling for Sharia law in U.S. must go forward
If the event does take place, American citizens will have the opportunity to see something that the media has largely kept hidden – that there is a segment of the American population that wants to subjugate our society under Islamic law. That is not to say that all American Muslims prefer Sharia by default – the group has to import speakers from Britain. The event itself may be appalling, but it provides Americans the perfect opportunity to learn the facts about Sharia and begin a national discussion as to whether Sharia is permissible in our society. If Americans can hear for themselves the words of those calling for an Islamic state in our country, rather than the secondhand soft-soaping we are likely to get from the New York Times or MSNBC, that will have a far greater impact.
What a better way to show the strength of the Constitution than to allow those who would destroy it to air their views, eh?
