Shilling for Shariah

Pages: 1 2

Since World War I, the West has enshrine human rights as an ideal for all nations and societies, as codified in the UN’s 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ICESCR, 1966), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR, 1966), and the Vienna Declaration and Program of Action of June, 1993.  Today these concepts are a cornerstone of Western Civilization.

But Islam offers a different perception of human rights — human rights as understood through Shariah law.  As the number of Muslims living in western countries grows, and along with that their influence in politics and society, Shariah comes into competition with western ideals.

Much ink has been spilled over the last few years in debate about the value, or the danger, of Shariah to western society.  On one hand there is a strongly anti-Shariah movement, led primarily by David Yerushalmi, a New York lawyer promoting awareness of the dangers of Sharia to American society and lobbying to ban it from American courts.[1]

The New York Times has been a leader in the defense of Shariah, with commentators Roger Cohen, Andrea Elliott, and Noah Feldman, inter alia, offering detailed expositions of the beauties of Shariah, its benign nature, and the absence of any reason to fear its co-existence with the secular law of the western countries.[2] They argue that Shariah law is a “non-existent threat,” [3] a “problem more imagined than real,” and its defense is a defense of religious freedom.[4]

The most eloquent, detailed, almost elegiac defense of Sharia comes from Noah Feldman who opines that “…for most of its history, Islamic law offered the most liberal and humane legal principles available anywhere in the world.”

Defending threatened minorities is an excellent expression of American democratic values. Shilling for Sharia, if it threatens our society, is not.

So why might Shariah be a danger to America?

Shariah (lit. a path, a way) is the product of Muslim jurists who use the Qur’an, the extra-Qur’anic accounts of Mohammed’s teachings, analogical reasoning, and consensus to create Muslim law.  There are certain characteristics of Shariah that have been apparent since its inception in the 7th century, such as:

Condoning murder for sexual transgressions or for the accusation of sexual transgressions

Condoning forced marriages and marriage of under-aged girls

Condoning wife beating and marital rape

Establishing women’s legal status in courts to be literally half of a man’s (it takes 2 female witnesses to counter one male witness in court)

Requiring that female heirs receive only half of what males receive

Requiring women to cover all of their body except hands and face.

Encouraging Polygamy

Prohibiting Moslem women from marrying non-Moslem men.

Prohibiting homosexuality, with punishment of flogging or execution

Prohibiting alcoholic beverages, gambling, music, much western art

Use of lex talionis (literally an eye for eye, tooth for tooth)

Amputation, flogging, crucifixion, stoning and decapitation for a variety of crimes, many of which would be considered non-capital offenses or even torts by western standards

Death for insulting or criticizing Islam, Muslims, Mohammed, the Qur’an, Sharia, or Allah

Requiring execution or assassination of Muslims who convert out of Islam

Creating the dhimmi status for Non-Muslims: a sub-class non-citizen denied civil and human rights[5]

In Sharia a non-Muslim’s life is worth less than a Muslim’s[6]

Requiring eternal jihad and exhorting Muslim leaders to abrogate treaties with non-Muslim countries if doing so will advance Jihad.

So Shariah is based upon a religious ideology that embraces gender apartheid, religious apartheid, cruel punishment and the denial of freedoms of speech, thought, and conscience.  As such it cannot be compatible with western pluralistic democratic societies.

But defenders of Shariah argue that much of what is objectionable to western sensibilities has often been not strictly enforced, and that over much of the past Shariah was more humane and just by modern standards than other national or religious laws of those same times.

These assertions, even if true, are irrelevant.  We are concerned with the present and future impact of Shariah on our civilization, not a comparative historical analysis of various legal systems.  Moreover, the religious, triumphalist, supremacist, imperialist Islam of el-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, Saudi Arabia and Iran includes the brutal enforcement of Shariah; and these terrorist forces and states have made deep inroads into Muslim countries previously ruled by far less extreme Islamic governments, and into African, Asian and European countries.

Feldman himself admits that “In the Muslim world Shariah has undergone an extraordinary revival in recent years. … Today, 66 percent of Egyptians, 60 percent of Pakistanis and 54 percent of Jordanians say that Shariah should be the only source of legislation in their countries. Islamist political parties… make the adoption of Shariah the most prominent plank in their political platforms. And the message resonates. Wherever Islamists have been allowed to run for office in Arabic-speaking countries, they have tended to win almost as many seats as the governments have let them contest. The Islamist movement…. is easily the fastest growing and most vital in the Muslim world; the return to Shariah is its calling card.”

For almost 40 years, Saudi Arabia and later Iran have made carefully orchestrated efforts to advance their own extreme interpretation of Shariah throughout the Muslim world.  They have succeeded.  Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan are examples of the triumph of Shariah in what were once more moderate Islamic states.  With the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sudan in 1983, pro-Shariah forces precipitated a war that caused the death of millions.  Nigeria,[7] Somalia, and Malaysia are in the throes of just such a conflict now. Turkey, a secular country since Ataturk (early 20th century), now boasts a radical Islamist government.

Add to that the Global Sharia Movement, with its own YouTube channel and Face book pages, whose goal is the total islamization of the world, implementation of Shariah and abolition of democracy.    In the UK there is constant pressure from the Global Sharia Movement’s local chapter, Sharia4UK, to advance Shariah as an alternative to British criminal law.  And this is not merely the work of some few extremists.  Recent polls show that growing numbers of young UK Muslims support Shariah, with almost 40% wishing to live under Shariah in Britain.[8]

Proliferating across European cities are “no-go zones” in which the majority Muslim population does not allow non-Muslims to enter, not even police, fire department, or ambulances. France alone has 751 such zones.[9]

In Britain, a Muslim group called Muslims Against the Crusades has launched the Islamic Emirates Project, a campaign to turn twelve British cities – including what it calls “Londonistan” – into independent Islamic mini-states, or “Islamic Emirates,” which will function as autonomous enclaves ruled by Shariah entirely outside of British jurisprudence.

In the Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Sweden, Muslim leaders are becoming more and more aggressive and violent in their bids to create Muslims-only enclaves, where Shariah is enforced to the exclusion of state laws.

One can watch on YouTube[10] the Muslim islamization of Europe: Muslim occupation and victory, without tanks or soldiers.

And what about the USA, where Shariah is “more imagined than real?”  A 2009 conference in Boston answers that question.  Nearly 300 people attended the Khalifah Conference on “The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam” organized by Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), whose alumni include 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the late Iraqi terrorist leader Abu Musab az-Zarqawi and would-be Hamas suicide bombers .  HT’s goal is to restore the caliphate and establish Shariah over the entire world via jihad. HT took its first baby steps toward this goal when it declared the new Caliphate, with its capital in Gaza City, in 2006.

The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) is actively afoot as well.

A memorandum, written in 1991 by a member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, outlined a strategic plan in the United States that involved “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”  A similar document, discovered during a raid by Swiss authorities in November 2001, identifies what the MB calls “the project”: a 12-step plan to mount a cultural invasion of the West, country by country, by establishing Islamist government organizations parallel to secular governments.  Written in 1982, this document presages the Muslim successes at implementing Shariah and creating independent Muslim enclaves throughout Europe.

Probably the most thorough documentation of the threat of Shariah to the USA is Frank Gaffney’s book Shariah: the Threat to America (CSP, 2010), published by his Center for Security Policy (CSP).  The CSP’s website devoted to the question of Shariah in America, http://shariahthethreat.org/, offers a 17-chapter survey of the issues summarized above.[11]

Gaffney concludes, as does David Yerushalmi, that while Feldman, Elliott and their ilk may be correct that today there is no Shariah threat in the USA, their assessments are very short-sighted.  Unless Shariah’s defenders are abysmally ignorant of the all-too-many core characteristics of Shariah that are an anathema to western civilization, and of Shariah’s role as the “calling card” of Islamist terrorists, they are shilling for the terrorists who seek to impose Islam on the west, by force if necessary.

The status of Shariah in European countries today is akin to what it was in Bangladesh, Sudan, or Afghanistan ten or twenty years ago. In ten or twenty years the USA may look a lot like European countries today, if the Muslim Brotherhood succeeds in implementing its “project.”

    "Today the international Left remains a tactic "fifth column" for Islamic terror in the West by making common cause with the Islamic terrorist infrastructure. The nature of that convergence of interests is the shared values of an anti-democractic, anti-Western, anti-Israel, and anti-American agenda. By the early 1950's, Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the secret society known as the Muslim Brotherhood, had begun to openly identify himself with and promulgate the ideas and tactics of communism, ideas that he began to introduce into the Islamic fundamentalist movement. During this period, much of the revolutionary jargon, style of agitation, propaganda, and victimology mythology in the Arab world began to take on a distinctly leftist coloration, not that this was all that much of a departure from the previous Nazi-style jargon, which was demonstraby of a like nature."

    It is a great article. The morons at NYTimes and other PC/MC media (newspapers, TV, radios, etc) should read this article to learn the truth about sharia and Muslims.

    Of course they don't have any brains left to comprehend this article!!

    • PatriotX

      The NYTimes want to believe what the NYTimes want to believe however ridiculous it is. They made up their minds already. You see, the left complains about ‘separation of church and state” but all what they really want to say is “separation of Christian influence from society”. What they don’t seem to understand is that Christianity gave them the very rights they abuse and take for granted.

  • Chezwick_mac

    This may seem like nit-picking, but Mr Meir-Levi ends what is otherwise a superb article with a reference to Hitler's 'beer-hall putsch'…which I believe unfortunately detracts from the article's overall effectiveness.

    One of the methodologies I use when reading a particular tract is how effectively it might reach those on the other side of the isle. When the piece is overly ideological and therefore beyond the sensibilities and/or imagination of our liberal interlocutors, I abandon the approach and just interpret the piece on it own merits, through my own eyes. But when the piece is written with sufficient balance, I try and read through the eyes of a fair-minded liberal (a rare animal indeed) or at least an uninitiated centrist…just to measure how effective it might be in opening eyes and minds. My ultimate criteria is judging how the piece might be received by liberal friends and family. This article was measuring up in every way until the final sentence.

    Early on, David establishes the linkage between the proclamations of multilateral organizations – which can't help but validate liberal sensibilities – with the core values of Western civilization. Great start.

    Then, concisely and with very effective brevity, David lays out several tenets of Sharia in all their ugliness and barbarity. The liberal/centrist reader couldn't help but recoil with revulsion; at least that's the hoped-for reaction.

    David closes with the "bear hall putsch" remark. Now among the initiated, we're all well-versed in 1) the totalitarian symmetry between Islam and fascism…and 2) the organizational and personal ties between Hitler's Germany and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Nonetheless, for the uninitiated, drawing the naked parallel between Islam and Nazis puts a definitive ideological spin on an article that until that moment was quite balanced, even if the analogy was absolutely legitimate (which it was).
    Doing so needlessly risks activating the "hate speech" sensibility that libs have so effectively cultivated in themselves and others. Until that final sentence, I was actually salivating as I read, thinking "lo and behold, a rare treatise of truth that my liberal siblings might imbibe without too much resistance".

    Just some food for thought David. Please accept the criticism in the constructive spirit it was intended. It was born of looking at the article through an admittedly narrow prism.

    • Chezwick_mac

      PS – That narrow prism – acceptability to the uninitiated – was utilized only because the article was so good in the first place.

  • Ron Carnine

    Shariah is absolutely contrary to the Constitution of the United States. Our country is governed by a constitutional republic which forbids the federal govt from enacting a "state" church. Islam on the other hand is a theocracy, in which Islam absolutely combines church and state and shariah becomes the codified rule of law. It denies individual rights, and makes the church the highest and most powerful influence in the society. Variations of religion are absolutely forbidden unless they are willing to accept dhimmi status (2nd class citizenship and submission to Islam) and all that goes with it. This is a situation where Muslims cannot take the oath of citizenship for the United States because it declares that they will protect and obey the Constitution of the United States and not the laws of Islam as codified in the Shariah. For enclaves of Islamic law to become part of this nation is treason, and should never be allowed. Muslims are therefore disqualified to become citizens of this nation if they want Shariah law which over 60% of them do. This is one of the reasons immigration of Muslims should be tightly controlled.

    • PatriotX

      Well, Carnine, I agree with you, however we’ve all seen just how much regard this administrion has for the constitution. NONE!!!! That is until it comes to the rights of criminals or the sexually deviant, then they are all for it, they’ll wave it in your face. Come on, get with the program, the constitution nowadays is only important to the left when it’s convient for them.

    We here in Indonesia are already seeing what shariah justice is all about, and I don't mean the slap-on-the- wrist sentences meted out to the murderous savages convicted for their part in the February Pogrom in Banten Province.
    That's old news now.
    Only this last few days, we have seen a major TV channel SCTV, bow down to the FPI islamoNazi gang who demanded the pro-tolerance movie " ? " not be screened.
    It's important not to let this appeasement slide, so our expat blog is asking people everywhere to contact advertisers on SCTV and tell them we won't buy their products unless they pull their ads. The station could have called the cops or at least made some show of resistance, but they buckled like wet weeds.

    ' TAQIYYA '
    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    Islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    Islam strives for world domination.

    The Quran commands Muslims to exercise jihad.

    The Quran commands Muslims to establish shariah law.

    The Quran commands Muslims to impose Islam on the entire world.

    Islam is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    Islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    Shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a Islamic society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the Quran is the call to jihad.

    Jihad means a lot of things and is Arabic for battle.

    Islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    Islam and freedom, Islam and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    Mohamed's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes Mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

    Are you INSANE?

    There are 6,000,000 Muslims in the United States and 1.5 billion worldwide.
    There are 5,800,000 Jews in the Unites States and 14.2 million worldwide
    The are 300,000,000 Americans after you subtract Jews and Muslims.

    The world's Jews are nearly evenly divided between The USA and Israel.
    2% of the world's Muslims live in the USA.

    To hear Zionists speak on the matter, you would think that the United States is about to be consumed by Islam, when the simple fact is there are about as many Muslims in the United States as there are Jews, and a SMALL MINORITY of those Jews are trying to scare the general population of Americans into cultural ethnic cleansing of Muslims. The way that small minority of loudmouths within a minority complain about the USA is the same way they complained in France when Jews were overrun by Algerians. It is the same way they complained in Austria when they were outnumbered by Germans. Now perhaps having a more ethnically balanced population is a real detriment to Zionists. They are after all, such a small group of people. However, as an American, and citizen of one of the most HOSPITABLE countries to World Jewry, I think they should just shut up and enjoy the freedom and equality here.

    • Leena

      Flipside: well said. I found your post by scrolling down the comments sections and looking for those that have the minus sign next to the post. I skip over those comments with the + signs next to them. It appears those who visit this blog or comment on the blog are birds of the same feather. What is now termed as 'Islamophobia' is directly tied to the outright theft of Palestine. There is ample evidence that Jews as a group own the major news outlets (tv, radio, print media, etc). Media ownership is in fact at the heart of Jewish control of everything else. With such formidable ownership of the media outlets, nobody in the West can aspire to any political position without first paying their homage towards Jewish groups. By that same ownership of the media, Jewish groups have used their pens to slash away at Islam and Muslims. Those who own the media own the brains of most Americans. The American public is so gullible mostly due to having spent decades glued to the TV set. And what programs are they watching and who produced those programs? You got it!

      • ObamaYoMoma

        The only problem with your analysis you unhinged bigot is most Jews are leftists. Not only that but most Jewish owned media such as the New York Slimes are also leftwing and thus also rabidly antisemitic as well.

        Good analysis Leena. A wise man once said that if you want to know who's in control, just figure out who it is you CAN'T talk about. You can talk smack about Muslims (as the freaks here do in every article), you can criticize Christianity, but the moment you criticize jews, your life is turned upside-down. Just ask Helen Thomas or Rick Sanchez. Like you said, "Those who own the media own the brains of most Americans" So true.

      I see you have been reading the Center for American Progress's anti-Semitic 130-page report on Islamophobia that seeks to blame Islamophobia on Jews and then uses character assassination and misinformation to attempt to silence those courageously spreading the truth about Islam and their marriage of convenience with the Left.

      In other words, not only are you a total and complete leftwing political hack, but you are also a Jew hating antisemitic bigot and Muslim jihadist sympathizing useful idiot. If I were you I would study what happened to to the leftist useful idiots in Iran as a result of the Iranian Islamic revolution, because it would inevitably happen again should the Muslims ever gain the upper hand.

Remember? For someone like me who is a firm and unflinching non-believer, all that hocus/pocus is hard to grasp and harder to believe that human beings do believe in all that nonsense. But, believe, they do. What is there to do with people of religion except treat them with sympathy and understanding. But what you are striving to do is attempt to justify the outright theft of Palestine by maligning the religion of those whose land you stole. Boring, boring, boring! Keep going.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    On one hand there is a strongly anti-Shariah movement, led primarily by David Yerushalmi, a New York lawyer promoting awareness of the dangers of Sharia to American society and lobbying to ban it from American courts.[1]

    Banning Sharia is impossible as long as Muslim immigration is allowed, as you can't import Muslims and not at the same time also import Sharia and Jihad, as Sharia and Jihad are intrinsic to Islam and you can't get Islam without also getting Sharia and Jihad. Indeed, Sharia is the will of Allah and jihad is the sixth and most important pillar of Islam.

    Yerushalmi may be temporarily successful in banning Sharia from American courts for a while, but it really won't matter, as Muslim immigrants in time will eventually form segregated Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia and in direct contravention to the laws of the USA. Exactly as they have already done just like clockwork anywhere and everywhere in the world where mass Muslim immigration has taken place for long enough. Eventually, when their numbers become sufficient, they will exploit the Left to slowly infuse Sharia into American society in exchange for votes, and not even Yerushalmi will be able to stop it. Hence, the only solution is to ban and reverse Muslim immigration ASAP.

    Unless Shariah’s defenders are abysmally ignorant of the all-too-many core characteristics of Shariah that are an anathema to western civilization, and of Shariah’s role as the “calling card” of Islamist terrorists, they are shilling for the terrorists who seek to impose Islam on the west, by force if necessary.

    If the writer of this article, which is great, by the way, would devote half as much time to understanding jihad, which is the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, as he has to understanding Sharia, he would not arbitrarily mislabel jihadists as being terrorists, and at the time also make the mistake of ignoring stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad.

    Indeed, the Noble Koran published in Saudi Arabia by the “King Fahd Complex for the Printing of the Holy Qur’an, Madinah, K.S.A.,” and you can’t get any more official than that, says the following in a footnote with respect to Surah 2:190 where every Muslim on earth gets his marching orders to participate in holy fighting and is clearly commanded that no one but Allah is to be worshiped:

    “Al-Jihad (holy fighting) in Allah’s Cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). Allah’s Word is made superior, (His Word being Lailaha illallah which means none has the right to be worshiped but Allah), and His Religion (Islam) is propagated. By abandoning Jihad (may Allah protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honour is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart wish to fulfill this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite.”

    Hence, jihad, the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, makes it an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim to fight jihad in the cause of Allah. The sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't makes it an obligatory duty only for extremists to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, and the sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't makes it an obligatory duty only for radicals to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, while at the same time giving all so-called moderate Muslims a free pass and exemption from fighting jihad in the cause of Allah. Instead, the sixth and most important pillar of Islam makes it an obligatory duty for ALL MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, no exceptions.

    Therefore, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS are jihadists, a few of them are violent jihadists, and most of them are stealth and deceptive non-violent jihadists, and the few that are not jihadists aren't Muslims as all but blasphemous apostates that must be executed per the dictates of Sharia.

    Hence, since ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS are jihadists, can we really call Muslims that are for all intents and purposes appear to be non-violent so-called moderate Muslims? Indeed, is it possible for jihadists to be moderates?

    Finally, should we continue to allow stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad, which relative to violent jihad takes place astronomically far more prevalently, to continue to be employed against us totally unacknowledged and unopposed?

    Hurrah! Adolph Flipside has found a blushing bride, the bored Leena, cousin of Ilse Koch, the Beast of Belsen. For them I'll become a self-appointed Jew to relieve them of boredom and lack of concern. Unlike all that horrible bunch of comment makers they find here, I will champion parts of Sharia (which is what this subject was about before these two lovelies got onto their anti-Jew treadmills) because I would apply it to Muslim Trojan Horses in our midst. There is no reading of anyone's rights in Sharia, nor probation and time off for good behavior. I would amend some time consuming rules Sharia has, like the stoning of people – stoning takes too much time. A simple decapitation of our enemies would suit me fine. What will surprise the diminishing number of Americans of the Flipside and Leena persuasion is the fact that the majority of Americans have awakened and gained smarts to realize who is out to do us in and who is our friend and this majority will take action on its own if our representatives do not. America will never become a subservient, dihmmi- type of nation the way England nearly has. And before we vote again we'll have to know exactly what the candidate's stand is on Islam and Sharia. Tighten your safety belts America, we’re in for a wild ride.

      When you people call someone a “dhimmi” it sounds the same to a normal person as a Scientologist calling someone an “unclear” or a Muslim calling someone an “infidel” or a communist calling someone an “imperialist” or an Amish person calling someone an “English.” In other words, you are the lunatic fringe.

        Yep. Throw your lot in with the enemy and loudly call for them to "liberate" the US from "ZOG".

        Just like your hero William Pelley Dudley did before he got busted for sedition during WWII…

        But you're OK being a racist national SOCIALIST sack of S-H-I-T-ler.

    A few years ago Quebec and Ontario in Canada prohibited Sharia Law,just like that,no big problem.The Muslims have not tried anything since.The lesson learned:to show character works with anti-human rights admirers.

    One of the Few Muslim Groups that are Really Moderate

    At least it looks like it,I may be wrong.They are the Alevis,the Second Largest Muslim group in Turkey>

    The following article also has links to articles about the Peaceful Ahmadiyas and the Anti-Human rights Salafis:

    Sharia forced marriages actually are similar to a Canadian province legislation that forces people to "become the spouse of a person who has a spouse". Consent is expressly not required by the forced person(s). Google "polygamy is just relationship overlap" to see quotes from judges and AG's that allow people to claim numerous same time spouses.

    Now we release the frozen assets to the "rebels" and they refuse to hand over the terrorist to us. Yeah, we can count on them being pro democracy and anti-Jihadist.
    Can we give them more please so we may convince them to like us?

    No. It's of greater concern that the United States is slipping from superpower status and the UK resembles the dump in "1984." Terrorism doesn't scare me. I was around before Menahem Golan made it the movie spectacular that it is today. Terrorism is an insignificant speck in world politics. I grew up with much better world threats than this. After the Soviet Union and nuclear armageddon, Muslims and carbon dioxide aren't that scary.

    I know exactly what it is. What? Are you upset that you cannot inherit the estate of Muslim? Or is it the poll tax that affects you?

    Infidel4ever;
    Just ignore Leena, she cannot come up with any original material so she reads the comments only of the Libtards who, by their sheer originality, feel compelled to make their anti-Semitic comments, that they may 'be accepted' by their peer groups of pseudo-scholars in academia. They really believe that their enlightened and intellectual superiority has discovered that we Jews really have some dark intentions for the world. Hell, these morons are not in the least original; the hateful Leftists of the world have been around (hating us) since Isaac and Ishmael!

  • elihew

    I really don't think that your good pals, the 'gays', lesbians, and the transgendered want to EVEN THINK about Sharia coming to a theater near you! Oh, that also goes for the self-hating feminists of your far-left-leaning pursuasion. Do you really know what they'd do to you all?!
