Islam: Firmly rooted in a twisted version of the Old Testament and the Mosaic Law.

IslamMoon

The teachings of Islam are set forth in the Qur’an (Koran), which is divided into 114 chapters or surahs. These are supplemented by hadith, “sayings,” a record of the actions and utterances of Muhammad, which at first were transmitted by oral tradition and later written down.

The Qur’an and hadith form the basis of the shari’a, the Holy Law, which lies at the foundation of the Islamic state, and which constitutes a rich body of legislation covering all aspects of public and private life.

Less clearly defined is the ijam, which may roughly be described as “consensus” and refers to the common opinion of the believers regarding particular interpretations of Islamic teaching. This in turn is guided by the Sunna, or accepted “tradition.”

The Mohammedan Candidate: Under the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya [dissimulation], Muslims are permitted—in certain contexts, and even encouraged—to deny being Muslim, if so doing secures them or Islam an advantage.


In other words, if an American president were a secret Muslim, and if he were lying about it, and even if he were secretly working to subvert the U.S. to Islam’s advantage —not only would taqiyya, or dissimulation, be justified by Islam’s doctrines of loyalty and deception, but it would have ample precedents, stretching back to the dawn of Islam. Muhammad, for example, commanded a convert from an adversarial tribe to conceal his new Muslim identity and go back to his tribe—which he cajoled with “You are my stock and my family, the dearest of men to me”—only to betray them to Islam’s invading armies.

Graham further upset certain sensitivities by saying, “All I know is under Obama, President Obama, the Muslims of the world, he seems to be more concerned about them than the Christians that are being murdered in the Muslim countries,” adding that “Islam has gotten a free pass under Obama.”

Muslims Declare Jihad on Dogs

Muslims demanded that dogs be banned from all forms of public transportation including all city buses as well as from all areas frequented by Muslim immigrants. Muslims said the presence of dogs in Lérida violates their religious freedom and their right to live according to Islamic principles.

After the municipality refused to acquiesce to Muslim demands, the city experienced a wave of dog poisonings. More than a dozen dogs were poisoned in September 2011 (local media reports here, here, here, here and here) in Lérida’s working class neighborhoods of Cappont and La Bordeta, districts that are heavily populated by Muslim immigrants and where many dogs have been killed over the past several years.

Unlike other religious juridical systems, Sharia intends to regulate, convert, or enslave the non-Muslim.

Amy Sullivan typically takes to comparing sharia with that of Jewish Beit Din, or even Catholic canon law, and finds no differences, “it’s all about marriage contracts and commercial disputes”, so no need to look behind the green curtain. There is a world of difference between these religious systems, only sharia law involves the non-Muslim, you only need to ask those who have been victimized by it to understand the stark differences, it truly does affect those who belong outside that ideology…

Editor’s note: While ideologies, creeds, and ends certainly vary, the source of the principles behind all three systems can be found in the Old Testament, Mosaic Law.

For leftist believers, the jihadist terror war now promised to succeed where Communism had failed: to obliterate the capitalist system itself.

In the blink of an eye after the Twin Towers went down, leftists were beating their breasts with repentance for their own government’s supposed crimes and characterizing the tragedy that their nation had just suffered to be some form of karmic justice.

Immediately following the 9/11 attack, leftist academics led with a drum roll. The very next day after the terrorist strike, Chomsky exonerated the terrorists, stating that the Clinton administration’s bombing of the pharmaceutical plant in Sudan constituted a far more serious terrorist act and warning that 9/11 would be exploited by the United States as an excuse to destroy Afghanistan.

Leftist academics across the country echoed Chomsky’s themes, cheering the 9/11 terrorist acts, which they deemed a just retribution for America’s transgressions.

Big trouble in Dear-born-i-stan (Islamic Michigan)

Writing  at The Corner, Nina Shea recaps the latest in the saga of Terry Jones, who has been trying to take a peaceful, non-flammable protest of sharia and jihad to the sidewalk outside the largest mosque in America in Dearborn, Michigan only to be outlawed by the Michigan District Court. Like all other envelop-pushing cases, this latest incident serves as a stress test of the rule of law in our society. And, like most other such envelop-pushing cases,  it proves that the rule of law is strong –  only the law that is strong is sharia (Islamic) law.

The Michigan District Court’s egregious ruling against Jones is all about protecting Islam from criticism, rather than about protecting criticism from Islam, which is what US jurisprudence, not to mention the American Way, demands. It is sharia that the US court is enforcing.

Sharia Law: The False Messiah of Islam.

Muslim Sharia Law (with a few modifications) is based on the same Ten Commandments that were given to Moses on Mt. Sinai.

Like the Scribes and Pharisees, who officially interpreted and enforced the old Mosaic Law, Islam has its own group of Ayatollahs and Imams.

Unfortunately, the Jews and the Muslims never came to understand that the old Law 1) was never intended to last forever; and 2) was actually a curse.

Here’s how this works:

The first thing Moses did (after getting a set of replacement tablets, from God) was to add a rather extensive set of statutes and ordinances to the original Commandments, creating what we know as the Mosaic Law.

Over time, other statutes and ordinances were added, making the Law ever more heavy and onerous, until … by the time of Christ … the whole thing was so laden with arcane and pointless requirements … that it … along with its corrupt administrators … the Scribes and the Pharisees … served to spiritually oppress the entire Nation of Israel … much as the Roman occupation oppressed them, civilly.

The Jews of that time had to endure (literally) the worst of all possible worlds!

Now comes Jesus, the Messiah, the promised Holy One of Israel, who would perfectly fulfill all that was written about him in the books of the Psalms and the Prophets, and by his saving death, also fulfill every jot and tittle of his Law, setting it aside … in favor of his all new and better covenant, and his grace empowered Catholic (universal) Church.

Refusing to accept even the possibility that God might choose to send his only begotten son as the redeemer of all mankind, Muhammad fell victim to the same spiritual blindness that still afflicts the Jews.

Meanwhile … thanks to the Holy Spirit … we Christians came to understand that Jesus Christ freed us from the curse of the old Mosaic Law. A law which was never intended to save souls … or to last forever … but only to point out the utter sinfulness and imperfections of man … and to demonstrate the absolute need for a holy redeemer.

In truth … Jesus Christ and his grace … not any law … is the first, best, and final recourse … of every Christian.

So, anyone who prefers to rely instead, on “keeping the law” in order to please God, is bound to fail.

Failing, there is no recourse … so a person is then practically bound to live a cursed existence … constantly oppressed by the law’s onerous, essentially pointless requirements … and always “under the thumb” of various officials, who serve to interpret and enforce it.

This seems to be an apt description of Sharia Law, as currently practiced throughout the Muslim world today. Does it not?

The eternal consequences of this grievous error are also very significant, since as we know, no one ever obtained salvation by “keeping the law”.

But what about today’s Christians, still attempting to observe the Ten Commandments? Isn’t that equally absurd?

Absolutely not!

With Jesus Christ as our savior, the Law no longer constitutes a curse, since even when we fail to keep it, forgiveness, absolution, sanctifying grace, and a fresh start … remain constantly and freely available to us, through the sacraments and devotions of the Catholic Church.

So, even when we Christians fail, salvation is still within our means … since our “means” is none other than Jesus Christ! (How’s that for a practical definition of faith?)

Thanks be to God!
