‘We are above the law of the land’
WND.com ^ | 3 February 2013 | John Griffing

Posted on 03/04/2013 6:17:59 PM PST by Windflier

Muslims living in America should not be bound by U.S. law, according to a leader of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, who delivered the controversial message to a crowd at a Muslim rally in Austin, Texas.

“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch.

........

The organizers said one major issue discussed “was the recent House and Senate bill proposals involving the implementation of ‘anti-Shariah’ legislation, where the First Amendment rights and freedoms of Muslims would ultimately be hindered.”

........

Carroll’s statement was similar to a statement allegedly made by CAIR co-founder and former chairman Omar M. Ahmad. He was paraphrased by a reporter saying, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant” and the Quran “should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

........

“When you even say the word Shariah, people get nervous. We are not advocating for Shariah. We are not trying to make Shariah the law of the land,” he said.

Carroll claimed Muslims only want the “right to practice our faith.”

........

Carroll is on record defending Hamas, classified by the U.S. as a terrorist group.

“I think you can only blame Hamas for so long. It takes two to tango. And I think, you know, that what we’ve heard for a number of years is this terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, Hamas, Hamas, Hamas, was not just Hamas,” he’s said.

At CAIR’s Dallas banquet in 2007, Carroll denied the Quran is the source of terrorism.

........

The fact that millions of mooslims are exempt from Obamacare...but still get treated at emergency departments anyway....is an effective tax on the rest of American citizens.

That's right. Because it's not a religion. It's a totalitarian political movement masquerading as a religion to get legitimacy.

No contradiction with the Establishment Clause. We can tolerate all religions...if they really are just that.

People need to learn that Islam is not a religion, rather, it is a mercenaries guide to jihad.... the ability to rape, plunder, raid the wealth of others, to take the produce and wealth of the successful and to strip the rights of all others as they march.

Religion is just the beard.

Mussies say that they don’t buy health insurance because it’s a form of gambling. I wonder if it’s the same with car insurance or any kind of insurance with them.

There’s nothing wrong with freedom of religion.

The problem is when lawless acts—those that harm others—are defended in the name of “freedom of religion.”

Muslims cannot legally practice their Sharia and the other murderous tenets of Islam in the United States.

Well, I support freedom of religion, but no one's yet proven to me that Islam qualifies for that definition. I oppose Islam because it's an oppressive, bloodthirsty, cult of death. That has been proven to me beyond a shadow of doubt.

I can't believe that exemption hasn't been successfully challenged in the courts. It's an affront to everything we stand for as Americans.

Why haven't other religious organizations filed for similar exemptions? Or have they?

Damn shame about the war declared against us...but there it is.

We sit here as innocent as the day is long.

But they (the Left and Islam) have declared war.

Probably a good idea to take them at their word...probably a good idea to get ready for war.

They declared it...not us.

We love peace...they love war.

When it is over, the world will be at peace.

If we lose...the world is headed for Hell.

God bless us...and God bless the world.

If we win...our future is golden.

Yes, it will, and we will all be there to celebrate our victory.

And we will win because our cause is rooted in natural law. Theirs is not.

Their way has failed wherever it's been tried, while ours has proven to be the most successful way to create a prosperous and productive society, the world has ever known.

We are truth. They are untruth. This movie ends like all good cowboy movies do.

“The cause, the root cause of terrorism is oppression. The root cause of terrorism is oppression.”

Oppression? Oppression by who? It's a lie, and they know it when they speak it out of their filthy mouths.

The West gave these sand urchins the means to develop one of the only valuable resources they have in their barren wastelands. It enabled them to amass vast, untold sums of wealth. Because of that never-ending stream of money, they can now indulge their ancient fantasies of global jihad.

The very fact these people have allowed the death cult to define them - to create their ultimate societal agenda, speaks to the innate, debased state of their culture.

They weren't ready for the world stage. Their development as a people and a culture, was arrested by the cult of death long ago. Despite living cheek-by-jowl with the modern, advanced cultures of the West, they've hardly moved an inch.

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."
~ Sir Winston Churchill

I think Article four of the Constitution would apply to sharia law, and having two seperate sets of laws for citizens. I don't believe it has been used that way previously, but it should apply.

Much of the blame lies with Texas’ own buffoon George W Bush. After 9-11 he could have led a charge to pass conservative immigration reform (i.e. no amnesty, no Diversity visas, end of chain migration and much less legal immigration and refugee settlements) which would have basically ended Muslim immigration. But being so liberal and worthless on immigration, Bush instead assured us that Islam is a religion of peace and did nothing as Muslim immigration increased.

There is nothing that can be done about voluntary conversions to Islam, but it’s insane for Western nations to have an immigration policy that makes their lands more Muslim. It’s distressing because opposing a growing Islamic presence should unite the Right and (elements of) the Left. But the Right is infected with the likes of the Bush family and Grover Norquist, while the Left simply hates mainstream and traditional America so much that they don’t care who they replace it with.

But if the resolve were there we could easily shut off Muslim immigration. (1) Abolish Ted Kennedy’s absurd Diversity Visa Lottery, which serves to bring in thousands of Muslims and then kicks off chain migration. (2) End chain migration by limiting family reunification visas to spouses and minor, dependent children. (3) Severely restrict refugee admissions; like the Diversity visa they have brought in thousands of Muslims and allowed new threads of chain migration to be initiated.

These three things would pretty much end Muslim immigration within a matter of years. And if need be we could simply now allow immigration from Muslim nations, and tell the Sup Court where to go if they tried to interfere.

Pursuing such policies would of course get one branded a racist by the Left (Democrats, media, Hollywood, professional ethnic grievance groups) and the righteous Right, but I’m afraid the entire Western world is going to sorely regret not taking such action when we easily could have.

“This is why — precisely why — I oppose Freedom of Religion. Islam should not be tolerated in any civil society that values the rule of law.”

Our Constitution is not a suicide pact. It requires defense against those who would use it to defeat us.

We cannot allow islamics the freedoms that we have — for they will use those very freedoms to twist and subvert our system to that point where they can assume control and force us to submit. They are well on the way to achieving this goal in Western Europe today.

I believe the followers of muhammed should be removed from The West, and that our laws (including the First Amendment) should be re-written to exclude them from the protections of actual religions (I do not consider islam to be a “religion”, per se, but rather a totalitarian behavior control system akin to nazism).

Muslims have no place in Western Civilization. They would be the first to tell you that Christians and Jews have no place in their world, either. I take them at their word.

This is an existential question of survival — confronted by a value system that’s only goal is to destroy us...
