Fear of Sharia? Oh, Please.

One of the dumbest bills I’ve seen in a while was introduced in Congress this week. H.R. 6975 would require aliens to attest that they will not advocate installing a Sharia law system in the United States as a condition of their admission to our...

No one that's ever had to hire lazy, half-literate white teenagers to perform even the most menial tasks at an inflated minimum wage could take Tancredo's immigration crusade seriously. Beyond any absurdity of content (I won't dignify discussion of the bill with debate) it sends a subtler message of government reliance: that the solutions to issues of judgment lies in the rhetoric of government resolutions, not in the actions of reasonable people of the world in which we live.

Apparently you haven't been around. Do some reading on the mess in Sweden over the Muslims moving in and taking over several towns. Maybe do some reading on what the Muslims have done in the Minneapolis, MN area; from the airport to Target Stores to a community collage. Quite simply its the way of Islam or nothing. This Bill will set things right. If immigrants want in, they agree to follow OUR rules , not some archaic and evil Sharia rule. Islam is evil, guided by sick teachings that support Sharia law. Hey, in this case the rule is part of the religion. Maybe you want Sharia law in your community, but not me.

Bosco: I live in Sweden. I am not a follower of Islam. Could you please tell me what cities the Muslims have taken over. I really can't find any.

Oh and that "way of Islam". What does that differ from this "natural selection" and the alike things proposed and forcefed by the Christians?

I can't believe this is actually called the "Jihad Prevention Act". It might as well be called the "Leave Your Quran At The Door Act".

This bill is right on the money and requires acknowledgement from immigrants that US laws, and Islamic laws, will hold sway in our country.

Sharia is anethma to democracy and values the West holds dear: freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, equal rights, etc.. Since Sharia and Islam advocate the establihment of the Caliphate (a muslim empire of Islam), persons who advocate Sharia are, in fact, guilty of sedition.

Doesn't the constitution say we have the right, as people of the United State, to remove government if we deem it unfit to fulfill our needs?

Answer

True, we have the right to actively change our government, which we have done (and continue to do) through ammendments and judicial interpretation.

The problem is that Islamic Law is diametrically opposed to democracy and all of the rights provided by the Constitution and all the principles our country was founded upon; as such, it is (or should be) abhorent to America (and any free people) to even consider accomodating such a system. Slavery, murder, polygamy and pedophilia (to name a few) are not accptable activities in any modern society, especially a democracy. Complete rejection of Islamo-fascism is the only acceptable course for America.

By the way, Islamic Law is open for neither interpretation nor change: it is infallable...and applies equally to everyone: abide by it or die.

I was just thinking to myself today "self," I said, "there just is not enough hate in the Constitution. I wonder if there is any way we could add just a little bit more." And here comes Tancreepo to fill the job. Before, it was Miami that was causing all the problems according to him. This guy just hates immigrants.

My country my rules!! If you want to come here from another country because of all the opportunities that abound here, then you will abide by the laws that are established here. AND DO NOT TELL ME YOUR LAWS APPLY TO ME OR CHANGE MY COUNTRY TO BE MORE LIKE YOUR COUNTRY - IF YOU DO NOT THE LAWS OF THIS LAND - LEAVE AND TAKE YOUR SHARIA LAW WITH YOU!!! DO NOT TELL ME TO BE MORE TOLERANT OF DIVERSE CULTURES AND RELIGIOUNS WHEN CHRISTIANS ARE KILLED ALL AROUND THE WORLD BECAUSE THAT RELIGION IS AGAINST THE LAWS OF THOSE LANDS.

I support Tancredo's effort to stop those trying to force Islam on the world. The Founding Fathers intention and assumption that the US is a Christian country is well established by any honest inquiry. The Supreme Court has upheld that three times as well. We still need any add'l safeguards, though, to protect us from Muslim radicals.

Anyone who doesn't have a fear of Sharia law has their head in the sand. Read. Investigate. There is no freedom there.

I am grateful to Tom Tancredo for introducing this bill. I have read the Koran. I also know a little history of the 1400 yrs of Muslim raids & conquest. Islam is absolutely a threat to the American people.

Its a barbaric system of laws which was set up in the 6th century AD and is inhuman to put it in short.

An example of a real case in India shows how ridiculous and inhuman this law can get.

A woman who was raped was told that she needed to divorce her husband, sleep with another man before she could marry her husband again. It totally defies common sense and logic.

We need to reject these 6th century barbaric laws which has no place in this country and in our constitution.

There is also a huge loophole in this bill. There is nothing which stops the citizens of this country , who are not immigrants, but born in the US (mainly children of immigrants and converts)to try and establish Shariah law. We need to look at that angle too.

Please read what happens to people under these laws in Iran and Saudi Arabia. Also for those who need more information about the truth about islam...please visit www.faithfreedom.org..it exposes what islam and shariah law really is.

Anthony Mo Sims, this is a discussion on human rights, Sharia Law goes against such thing. Plain and simple. If Sharia ever came to America, there'd be another civil war. Guess who would win? The majority, which are non-Muslims. No doubt. Mohammad won't be able to reach his sword in time.

Hey Xake, ever heard of Malmø, Sweden. It's like the third largest city in Sweden, right? DO a search on this city and its Islamo-fascist unrest. It a story of what those buggers can and will do to countries that take them in. I love Sweden and have relatives there, so it hurts to see your country facing these problems.

I suppose if you want to be a weak liberal you could allow their take over. What is being forced by Christians? I see a lot more threat to our freedoms by the progressive liberals and Neo Cons than Christians, let alone radical Islam. Apparently, you are ignorant our of Christians roots in the USA.

Nah, nothing to worry about, right? This is how it begins. Apathy, indifference, or naivete. Can you imagine a liberal Supreme Court if Obama gets in? Some on the court now want to make judgements using foreign laws as a precedent. Please shrug off your political bias and see what is happening to the sovereignty of other counrties. The UK for one!!
