Polls show that 40 percent of British Muslims want Sharia, Islamic Law implemented in the UK and the government has moved to accommodate them. Tony Blair's government passed a law that would essentially criminalize blaspheming Islam. The law was weakened in the House of Lords but it will return again stronger than ever especially as the electoral and terror power of Muslims grow along with the desire of Western governments to appease them.
Norway and Sweden have already begun the process of implementing similar laws. In parts of Australia criticizing Islam can get you jail time. In Israel a woman was sentenced to prison for drawing and distributing a cartoon of Mohamed as a pig. In Russia and Belarus newspaper editors have faced jail time for reprinting the Danish cartoons.
If you believe that this can't happen in America, you are very wrong. The legal framework for it is already in place. Hate Crime laws allow for actions that are not in and of themselves criminal to be treated as criminal actions. Increasingly such laws also define a hate crime not based on the motive or action of the accused perpetrator but on the perception of the presumed victim. Beyond the legal statues, perceived intolerance is penalized in numerous ways economically and socially.
Despite the fact that Americans have stronger freedom of speech protection than Europeans, fewer American than European newspapers printed the Mohamed cartoons. A handful by comparison. Europe's newspapers still need laws to be censored, our newspapers gladly censor themselves without even facing any real threat of violence as Europeans do. Even before the mobs have come, the press has voluntarily obeyed them.
For all intents and purposes, from our government to our media to our public entertainment and educational system; the first law of Islam has been implemented.
The First Law of Islam: Thou Shalt Not Criticize Islam.
The laws beyond that will follow. Since this special status of Islam leaves all other religions unprotected, Islam already has a superior status to other religions while other religions have an inferior status to Islam. With the first law in place, WE ARE ALL ALREADY DHIMMIS.
The Second Law of Islam: Islam is Superior to All Other Beliefs
Islam may be propagandized in schools while Judaism or Christianity may not. Muslims may pray in schools, members of other religions may not. Muslim holy books are treated as holy, while the holy books of other religions are treated as myth. The violence of other religions is condemned, while the violence of Islam is covered up. This leads us to Islam's second law, Islam Is Superior To All Other Beliefs. By giving exclusive status to Islam, we have already implemented this as well.
The Third Law of Islam: You Will Obey Us
By giving in to Islamic rage, we have already set the pattern of functioning as Dhimmis, of responding to Muslim tantrums with appeasement. The pattern continues from there with Muslims in public life enforcing their religious laws on everyone else. Muslim taxi drivers are already doing this by refusing to carry passengers who carry alcohol, seeing eye dogs for the blind and Muslim cashiers are refusing to handle pork.
There are Islamic laws that place restrictions on women. These won't require government authority to legislate. Muslims simply implement them by making clear what happens to women who don't. In parts of the world that has meant throwing acid into the faces of schoolgirls who don't wear the Hijab as in Indonesia, preventing women from entering public areas if they are not dressed 'modestly' as is widespread in African countries where Islam is on the rise, treating any woman not dressed in the Islamic manner as a legitimate rape target as in Europe.
Sharia Law doesn't need to function officially as long as Muslims have the leverage to implement it by force on an individual level. Through sensitivity training and religious protection laws, Muslims are forcing schools to allow Hijabs and Sex Separation as their requirements for women and through violence and harassment will force women to follow those requirements. At Nigerian protests a female Muslim reporter was stoned for not wearing the Hijab head covering, a head covering that was itself developed during the Lebanese conflict and modeled on the wimples of Catholic nuns to enable Arab Muslim fighters to distinguish between Christian and Shiite women as legitimate targets for assault. Harassment by Muslims of Jewish students is already prevalent on campuses while the administration looks the other way. The same feminists who hold Take Back The Night Rallies along with solidarity rallies for Palestine will discover themselves the targets soon enough, as women increasingly face harassment from Muslim bosses, clients and customers for not complying while the various offices of civil and human rights naturally look the other way.
The only major step Muslims have yet to achieve is to force disputes between Muslims and Non-Muslims to be mediated in Muslim courts. This will begin as part of workplace sensitivity regulations for Muslims requiring disputes with the company to be arbitrated in a Muslim forum and some disputes between civil authorities and Muslim workers as well. The media and government broadcasting and rebroadcasting with the propaganda that Islam is a Religion of Peace will have nothing but praise for them. CAIR and similar groups will run puff pieces on how these arbitration mechanisms function much more peacefully than civil courts and save everyone money.
Then there will be Muslim unions that will strike not over job issues but over political ones. Support for Israel or sanctions against Iran or any opposition to a Muslim demand by a city will mean striking transit workers, taxi strikes and work stoppages that will derail local, state and national economies. It will be cheaper and simpler for most to simply give in. If this is hard to believe, consider that American labor is increasingly immigrant based and unions are trying to compensate for their loss of influence by aggressively recruiting immigrants. It won't be long before those same immigrants are running the unions. The New York transit strike was orchestrated by a man who could barely speak English. Today he's Haitian, tomorrow he's just as likely to be Pakistani or Yemeni.
The hour is much later than we think.
If Europe is putting up something of a fight, it is we who are giving in without a fight. For all the patriotic rhetoric of the Bush Administration, we may be fighting a particular group of Islamic terrorists but we are surrendering to most of the others and the terror has only begun.
Hmmm...can't insult? Ok. izlam was created in the bottom of an outhouse.ReplyDelete
hmmm....it's superior? Ok. izlam is lower than a pigs hiney and therefore is superior to nothing. PS: pigs drink other pigs urine...so do arabs.
hmmm....must obey? Ok. when you pry my cold dead fingers from my slingshot and pistol.
(yo runs for president with the policy of making it open season on muzlims, with no bag limit. taxidermy shops will be happy to mount the heads for you to use as target practise for hunting deer, squirrel or more muzlims. Hey! I'd vote for me.) :]
No doubt the grovelling defeatist dhimmitude of Rowan Williams, the Marxist 'Arch Druid' of Canterbury, will have come to the attention of yourself and your readers.
This quisling, who has today called for the implementation of Shariah in Britain, makes me ashamed of the church of my baptism.
"Whilst chaplain of Clare College, Cambridge, Williams took part in anti-nuclear demonstrations at US bases. In 1985, he was arrested for singing psalms as part of a protest organized by the Committee for Nuclear Disarmament at Lakenheath, an American air base in Suffolk; his fine was paid by his college. At this time he was a member of the left-wing Anglo-Catholic Jubilee Group headed by Father Kenneth Leech and he collaborated with Leech in a number of publications including the anthology of essays to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Assize Sermon entitled Essays Catholic and Radical in 1983.
He was in New York at the time of the September 11, 2001 attacks, only yards from Ground Zero delivering a lecture; he subsequently wrote a short book, 'Writing in the Dust', offering reflections on the event. In reference to Al Qaeda, he claimed that terrorists "... can have serious moral goals" and that the attackers on 9/11 should not be called evil."
COMMENT: The only positive interpretation I can put upon the event is the hope that this pitiful aging hippie's incoherant ramblings may serve as a dire warning to the young people of Britain of how abuse of hallucinogenic substances in ones' youth can lead to insanity in later life.
yes a proper successor to william temple indeedReplyDelete
Sultan, you forgot all about Sharia economics. It's being implemented as we speak and will only get worse.ReplyDelete
The hour is much later than most of us realize. It's all happening at a lighting fast pace. What other minority immigrant group has achieved this level of control and dominance in less than a generation? Less than six years?ReplyDelete
The mere fact that we are altering our behaviors to appease Muslims is proof enough that we're being controlled by them.
Jews can't pray on the temple mount for fear of inciting Muslims.
Schools teach sensitivity to Islam by having school children go through the motions of Muslim prayers; there's no way a public school system would allow a nun to teach the rosary and hand out rosary beads or a rabbi teach kids how to put on tefilin.
But through Islamic rehersals kids are learning to pray as Muslims do.
It started out with most Amercians fearful of Muslims being mistreated after 9/11. No one wanted the abuse leveled against Japanese Americans to be repeated. But the difference is the majority of Japanese Americans were loyal to the country and just wanted to live in peace.
I can't say the same for Muslim Americans. When the tried to introduce Shira Law in Canada the people most against it were Muslim women, a category of Muslims most of the western world care little about for all of their liberalism.
In the end the point the world is missing is that the problems of the world are in people, individuals.ReplyDelete
If it is not Islam it will be something else until people wake up and change.
The problem in the world is people. Religions are all heretical and wrong..every single one of them and until people repent and change and turn back to G-d for real.. this will not stop.
Good article, Sultan.ReplyDelete
You are correct, and it is dhimmification imposed by those who are supposed to be our own leaders and the networks of the corporate left who are behind the process. It is those who funnel immigrants of all types into our society, and it is they who profit from doing so. The networks of the left are establishing dhimmification while teaching (and enforcing) tolerance.
Our society is split into fragments fighting against each other. A sizeable portion seems to be unaware of danger and refuse to consider that those of another mindset will separate their thoughts of coexistence from their flabby bodies. Once Islamacists are given the opportunity, that is what they will do.
Those of us who share awareness seem more inclined to fight word and philosophy battles while playing erudite games exposing Islams undersides. Rarely are the complicities of the corporate left and other leftists even mentioned. Many seem more inclined to engage in other games of political correctness rather than cooperating for a victory.
It is not the imported ones we need to fight. Nor is it the ones who can be dealt with overseas by our military. It is the press and the left who provide the base of support for those policies which import those pursuing jihadist sharia, and it is they who make our military impotent in setting or obtaining proper objectives.
Jihadists are easier to expose, but the networks on the left and their corporate and financial controllers are our true problem. It is they who fail to adequately recognize the dangers they import and support. Media has long assisted in their blindness.
We must regain control over our political process taken by them or we must convince them that their short and long term policies are clearly served by supporting an end to immigration and to shariasation.
It was reported in the Toronto Sun the other day that some Muslim males in the Toronto area are claiming/receiving welfare support payments for up to four wives apiece. I've always wondered how these "new" Canadians can afford to travel all over the world. Now I know.
This only would make legal in the UK what is already legal in the US: It is the very same legal procedure that allows Jews to use a beit din to settle disputes.ReplyDelete
Difference between a Beit Din and Sharia law;ReplyDelete
Beit din won't kill you, cut off your hands or feet, head or have you beaten at all.
the beit din is a voluntary process for some JewsReplyDelete
by contrast Muslims intend for Sharia law to apply to everyone, it's the first step in a Muslim system of law for the entire country, as is the process in places like Nigeria and Kenya and Thailand
