Shari’a and Violence in American Mosques

Pages: 1 2

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is David Yerushalmi, General Counsel to the Center for Security Policy, a Washington, D.C.-based national security think tank founded and headed by former Reagan administration official Frank Gaffney. He is considered an expert on Islamic law and its intersection with Islamic terrorism and national security. In this capacity, he has published widely on the subject, including the principle critical scholarship on sharia-compliant finance published in the Utah Law Review (2008, Issue 3). He has also designed and co-authored (with Mordechai Kedar) a ground-breaking peer reviewed empirical investigation on sharia-adherence and the promotion of violent, jihadist literature in U.S. mosques published in the Middle East Quarterly (Summer 2011).

FP: David Yerushalmi, welcome to Frontpage Interview.

I would like to talk to you today about your Mapping Sharia project. Now that it is published as a fully peer-reviewed study in the Middle East Quarterly, what can you tell us about the findings?

Yerushalmi: Thank you, Jamie.

We began this study in 2007, with a careful and rigorous methodological design.  The purpose was to measure sharia-adherence (or Islamic legal orthodoxy) among worshippers and their imams at U.S. mosques (i.e., the independent variable) and to measure that against both the presence of violent and jihadist literature and, more, the actual promotion of that literature by the imam (i.e., the dependent variables).  We took four years to conduct the study because we need a large enough random sampling of mosques across the U.S. to be able to say with some certainty that we can speak about U.S. mosques generally and because we understood that we would need to confirm our data during a subsequent survey so that we could be certain of the integrity of our results and so we were not merely taking a one-time “snap shot” of these mosques.

After surveying 100 mosques randomly chosen across the U.S., and after “auditing” our data, our results were troubling, to say the least.

First, of the 100 mosques surveyed, 51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence; 30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence; and 19% had no violent texts at all.  Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts.  In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam recommended studying violence-positive texts.  The leadership at Sharia-adherent mosques was more likely to recommend that a worshipper study violence-positive texts than leadership at non-Sharia-adherent mosques.  Fifty-eight percent of the mosques invited guest imams known to promote violent jihad.  The leadership of mosques that featured violence-positive literature was more likely to invite guest imams who were known to promote violent jihad than was the leadership of mosques that did not feature violence-positive literature on mosque premises.

FP: Were the results of the study a surprise?

Yerushalmi: Not for us in this field. For example, Shaikh Hisham Kabbani, a well-respected Sufi leader in the U.S., has reported to the Department of State that his personal research (albeit not based upon a rigorous empirical design) evidences that hard-core Salafists from the Wahhab sect of Saudi Arabia have taken control and spread “extremism” in 80% of U.S. mosques. (See here and here.)

In addition to this anecdotal evidence, the very credible Freedom House under the direction of Nina Shea conducted a serious survey of major mosques in U.S. urban environments and found Wahhabi-Saudi jihad literature literally permeating these mosques.  Again, while the study was of select mosques and not a random survey, it suggested a major infiltration that supported Kabbani’s reports.

Our findings that 81% of U.S. mosques contain this literature, while troubling, would not be considered surprising. What is surprising, was the degree to which the presence of this literature was correlated with the imams actually promoting this jihad hate literature.  In other words, one might expect a mosque to have some of this material but as reference literature, not as something the imams would actively promote.  What our study found was that mosques with this literature were not merely repositories but incubators for the messaging of this material.

    With the help of our government many of us who don't want the laws of the Muslims will have our heads cut off some-day, just wait and see within 5 years you will see that law of Evil doers here and being used to do the muslim plan of attack and Murder and rape.
    The ugly facts are most people will go-along to get along and you can see this evil fact in the lefists mind set and also the total theft of this Nation has already happened in many places by the third worlds people with the help of our so called Government and we live Under a lie so just stand and watch as the USA Becomes a Murder State of its own People and Ideals.

        Whats the background of the sort of American judges you are talking about? Thats an easy one – a 1960s pot-smoking hippy.

  • Hamza

    As a muslim-american, this is shocking. What are the violent-texts they refer to? It would be nice if the study provided more insight on what exactly qualified as a 'violent text', because for all intensive purposes Shakespeares classic "Hamlet" can be considered a violent text …

    • Foolster41

      Huh. Interesting. the play Hamlet advocated for violence against a people group? I'm a big Shakespeare/Hamlet fan, but I don't remember ever reading that;

      The article clearly distinguishes between violence and calls to violence, and making the claim it is the later, not the former that the mosque literature contains.

      The article would also answers your question, about the material, if you were bothered to read it:
      "If someone does this [prevents others from accepting Islam], then it is the duty of Islam to fight him until either he is killed or until he declares his submission.[18]" (and others).

      Please tell me, what act/scene in Hamlet is there a CALL for violence against a group of people (i.e. a statement that is portrayed as sympathetic by the author says as such). If there is no such statement, then your comparison is false, and you have been trying to INTENTIONALY MISLEAD people, or you really don't understand the very basic difference between "calls to violence" and "violent".

      • robin

        this guy is your typical good moslem being just like muhamad and doing his darndest to mislead the population because the true islam demands he lie they call it taqiyya …they will kill whom ever will not submit and accept islam or renounce jesus and be a dhimmi …..once they overwhelm a country by out breeding it and immigration they get violent quickly .

      Hamza – Have you ever read the terror guide that was shat from the anal glands of mohamat the rapist as a result of intestinal distress following sex with and a meal of his favorite pig? If I'm not mistaken, muslims call it the koran. Just wonderin'.
      BTW….Hamlet isn't the basis for a false religion, it's a play.

      • robin

        in total agreement …touche!

    • American_Flag

      OK Hamza, play dumb now? Please log off now.

    • Fred Dawes

      as a muslim so called American this is not in anyway shocking to you and in fact you are told what to write and talk about in your mosques guys tell you to say that you don't understand, your real plan is to murder and rape all non muslims and to make a all muslim world just in the same way hitler wanted to do.

    • tanstaafl

      From the Qur'an –

      Quran 9:5 "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."

      9:112 "The Believers fight in Allah's cause; they slay and are slain, kill and are killed."

      8:39 "So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world)."

      • Tanstaafl

        8:65 "O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding."

        9:38 "Believers, what is the matter with you, that when you are asked to go forth and fight in Allah's Cause you cling to the earth? Do you prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? Unless you go forth, He will afflict and punish you with a painful doom, and put others in your place."

        • Tanstaafl

          47:4 "When you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle (fighting Jihad in Allah's Cause), smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making (them) captives. Thereafter, either generosity or ransom (them based upon what benefits Islam) until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam."

          • Tanstaafl

            Hamza – do you even read the Qur'an?

            There ain't no such thing as a "moderate" Muslim.

    • Stephen_Brady

      This was an interesting comment. Having played Hamlet, myself, I can't think of a specific instance in Shakespeare where he advocates the systematic murder of fathers-in-law, any more than the play "MacBeth" advocates the murder of uncles. Can you be more specific?

    • John

      Had you read the article in the Middle East Quarterly that was referred to above, then you would have seen in the footnotes that the authors of the article refer to 'Riyadh as-Salaheen' as an example of one of the texts that promotes violence towards non-Muslims.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      What are the violent-texts they refer to?

      They are called the Koran, the Hadith, and the Sira (the biography of Muhammad), which altogether comprises the Sunnah. Indeed, when I read the Sira, Sirat Rasoul Allah, by Ibn Ishaq, I had never read anything so violent, brutal, and bloody before in my life.

      Indeed, if you are a Muslim, then how can you be so stupid with respect to the fundamental texts of Islam? The answer is you can’t. Thus, the reality is you are intentionally being deceptive. Go fly a kite you taqiyya spewing Muslim!

      • Robin

        Lets add the sharia………………..please

    • Jaladhi

      The usual taqiyya spouted by Muslims. They can't admit the truth about Quran and their religion and that's what keeps them in the seventh century from which they don't want to come out any way!!

    • Asher

      Hamaz: There are some very violent scriptures. Sura XLVIL–Muhammad says When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them, and the rest make fast the fetters. Also Sura IX 4 Immunity- Medina And when the sacred months are passed, kill those who join other Gods with God wherever ye shall find them; and seize them, besiege them, and lay wait for them with every kind of ambush; but if they convert, and observe prayer, and pay the obligatory alms, then let them go their way, for God is gracious, and merciful…Excuse me it is not merciful to kill someone just because they worship another religion…

      • Asher

        Hamza: I hope many Muslims realize that these scriptures do not represent peace.

  • ClaireSolt

    Time for tough love re Muslims. shape up or ship out.

  • davarino

    So this proves what I have suspected for years. That there are so few "moderate" muslims there essentially are none.

    Are there any moderate muslims out there? Hearing none I take that as a "NO". If you are out there you better speak up now cause its about to get ugly and you dont want to be on the wrong side.

    So yes, we are at war with islam. There, I said it.

    • RogueWave24

      "So yes, we are at war with islam. There, I said it."

      You are right. We are.

    • hrayspitz

      Guys, when we fought the Indians did we fight all the tribes at once?
      Or did we fight the tribes one at time or in the smallest groups we could manage, using their own rivalries (and sometimes warriors) again each other?

      We need to do that with Islam. User internal rivalries within Islam (Shia vs. Sunni, etc.) and external rivalries (tribal and national) to destroy the medieval barbarians without having to completely militarize the country and to "WWII" on them.
      A stand-up fight with a religion that boasts over a billion adherents worldwide (and at least a million within the US) would be really, really messy and expensive.

      Of course, the gate for this may have closed. This "Arab Spring" crap may be the beginning of a Al Qaeda's "Caliphate" – their goal all along.

      • No Quarter

        Good point!

  • jacob

    Interesting to realize how the Mayor of the ROTTEN APPLE, a "sui generis" Jew
    himself and his commission (with GOD oly knows how many "Jews" of the same
    kind) was their outlook to the Ground Zero Mosque project, to learn where is our
    country headed to with Muslims using our own laws to screw us, thanks to the
    "political correctnes" and, as pointed out in the article, the fear of being tagged as
    "ISLAMOPHOBES" by liberals, lefties and Muslims…

    Fortunately, my skin is not that delicate and although my opinion is insignificant,
    i confess to being Islamophobic and proud of it and I don;t believe Jews should
    wait for the rock or tree to tell a "faithful" there is a Jew hiding behind them for him
    to come and kill the Jew, just because as YOSHIRO SAGAMORI once wrote in the
    "Every practicing Muslim is a terrorist.
    It is what has been hammered into his head from craddle to grave and it is what
    his religion expects from him"…

    • WilliamJamesWard

      Seeing a clear and present danger requires looking past the PC crap of the media
      and give a hug to a terrorist attitude of leftists. These Islamists are our ruin if we
      do not alert our people to the threat. Islamophobe, Islamashmobe who cares
      what idiots and traitors call us, knowledge is still power and the word must get

  • Wesley69

    This is eye opening, but not unexpected. We can thank our good "friends" of Saudi Arabia for their generous support for a Wahhab way of thinking in our mosques. One starts to wonder is there Moderate Muslims out there that are willing to take on this jihadist mentality?? I fear there are few and these few would be looked upon as traitors to the religion and killed.

    That Egyptian, Jordanian, Pakistan, Nigerian populations are strongly behind harsh enforcement of Sharia Law, while Turks aren't may show a divide in the level of education, but it is dangerous none the less. The idea of martyrdom would have an appeal to any Jihadist who would behind the rewards of paradise await him if he is killed taking down the infidel. Hoping that the populations in the Mideast will adopt Western culture and governmental structure is wishful thinking.

    The West must get out of its PC way of dealing with this threat, because it is just that, a threat to our beliefs and way of life. To defeat this enemy will require that our hands get dirty because Jihadists don't fear death. We need to find something they fear that will keep them out of paradise. Trying to win hearts and minds is futile, particularly when the other side looks upon you as an infidel and wants to kill you.

    Here, in the US, we MUST have a real, on the table, open debate about the threat of Muslim jihadism, knowing that we will be called Islamophobes. I ask you is it better to be called a name or be dead??? Second, we MUST make sure that Sharia Law is not practiced in this country and that means putting amendments in the Constitution that will do just that. Why, because Liberal Judges and the ACLU will interpret freedom of religion to allow the worst practices of Sharia Law. Third, we MUST realize it is our way of life or theirs, which is it going to be. We believe in liberty, freedom of the individual, government ruling at the consent of the governed, the equality of men, women, races, creeds. We have something to fight for. The Jihadists want a world-wide Caliphate, where all worship Allah. They are willing to die for it. Are we????

    • Stephen_Brady

      Excellent comment, Wes.

      As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. If that means that the government fails us, and admits Sharia into our nation … indeed, they've done it already … we will fight the enemy on his own terms.

      I will never be a Muslim.

      • Wesley69

        One way to do it, Stephen_Brady is to make it clear that Sharia Law will NEVER be the law here. You do that by making it part of our Constitution. Here is what I have written on that subject.

        To stop the advance of Shariah Law in this country and the actions of the Muslim Brotherhood, one must start with the Constitution. Since it is the job of federal judges to interpret the Constitution, provisions must be added that limit such interpretations. Rather than be viewed as an attack, these amendment preserve the liberty of every individual in this country.

        First, the provision(s) of the Amendment is listed. What follows in parenthesis is a brief explanation of what I'm trying to outlaw under Shariah. Shariah must NEVER be allowed into our system of justice. There are certain laws that we must ALL abide by.

        1-The beliefs and practices of a theopolitical sect shall not be restricted, unless such beliefs and practices cause physical harm or monetary damage to its adherents or to citizens of the United States.
        (Forbids stoning, beatings, mutilation, honor killings)

        2-All forms of Speech by citizens about any theopolitical system shall not be restricted.
        (Forbids any retaliation against those writing about Islam, its faults, making cartoons of Mohammed)

        3-Forced conversion or persecution of those who would renounce their beliefs in any religion is forbidden.
        (Forbids conversion by the sword or murder of apostates)

        4-Religious Authorities, Courts or Assemblages that proscribe physical and/or monetary religious sanctions to an individual, contrary to the Constitution, are forbidden.
        (No religious leaders or courts approving of a punishment or a religious order to harm any individual is allowed, including the fatwa)

        5-Indoctrination regarding a particular theopolitical ideology for the purpose of conversion utilizing public institutions or public funds shall be forbidden.
        (Forbids any public money for religious education designed for conversion)

        6-Theopolitical practices may be allowed at public functions as long as no one is compelled to participate and as long as these practices are not excessive in natural.
        (Protects the rights of the majority to the public expression of their religious beliefs as long as it is reasonable)

        7-Public accommodations or restrictions made for one religion, must apply to all religions, when reasonable.
        (Protection from having to meet the needs of every religion in public and private concerns)

        These amendments will PREVENT JUDGES OR JUSTICES FROM INTERPRETING THE LAW AS THEY CHOOSE. They are meant to RESTRICT Judicial Activism and also the destructive actions of the ACLU on behalf of those wanting Shariah Law for everyone. It will also restrict the actions of the Muslim Brotherhood to undermine this country and its values

      Mass produce pig skin quilts to bury their pieces in and create aresol bacon grease like mist to repel them with keep mass quantities of large breed black dogs to sniff their jinn out and tell on allah when he comes lurking …..That is easy.And let a bomber erase the kabaa by mistake of course and no more allah in the stone to pray to five times a day .

  • LoudonBaxley

    The difference between a "moderate" Muslim and an observant Muslim is that the observant Muslim wants to kill all us infidels and a moderate Muslim wants the observant Muslims to kill all us infidels.

    I don't understand why our esteemed leaders can't understand this simple and obvious fact. Muslims have been openly teaching it and practicing it for 1400 years. Their holy book is full of exhortations to kill the infidel – and they do so whenever and wherever they can.

    • American_Flag

      Loudon Bax – You are 100% correct. There are 2 kinds of moslems…radical moslems and those in hiding. There is no moderate moslem. That term is a fabricated term define by Western Civilization.

      Read all about this in books by Walid Shoebat…

    • johnnywoods

      You might ask Barack Al Obama that. question.

    • GKC

      The difference between a "moderate" Muslim and an observant Muslim is that the observant Muslim wants to kill all us infidels and a moderate Muslim wants the observant Muslims to kill all us infidels.

      The best I've heard yet!

  • Chezwick_mac

    My minimum expectation of Muslims and their liberal apologists would be this…not a judgment or repudiation of Islam, just a simple acknowledgement that something is wrong, that interpretations of Islam are resulting in violence and intolerance in many places around the world. But even such a neutral, rudimentary acknowledgement of an irrefutable reality is not in the cards….because it would be the first step in an honest discourse about what Islam really is and -in the process – might unravel the multicultural mantra that all cultures are equally valid…and lord knows, we can't have that. So the denials and obfuscations have become second nature to us…"Islam is peace", "tiny minority of extremists", etc., etc…as we hold fast to a narrative as fixed and immutable as the Quran itself.

  • Steve Chavez

    "Religion First or Country First?" Would any Imam warn U.S. authorities of any person, or group, that seeks violence or jihad here in the U.S., their own country?

    Would Muslim Americans, who attend a mosque and are aware of a plot, do the same?

    A Muslim Student group and Leftist student group in California (?) put protest signs on student dorms saying "Three Days Warning" to evacuate which they claim is the warning Israel gives to residents before they bulldoze a home that is used as a safe-haven or a bomb factory. I wrote a comment saying that Pro-Israel groups should place their own protest signs at the same dorms, classrooms, and their Student Union, saying "Israel-3 days warning. Suicide Bombers-NO warning."

    Yes, Mosques are a breeding ground for jihad but Muslim Student Associations are the soldiers who will team up with their radical Leftists comrades for that eventual Jihad!

  • Prof. Krasher

    My view of Islam is simple. It is (1) evil, and (2) hell bent on converting me to its evil ways, or in the alternative, killing me for not doing so. Hence, I see all Moslems alike, and defend against them. The Moslem is a Moslem is as Moslem. If one believes their book, and that person's life is directed by it, them they are a Moslem; my natural enemy and I theirs.

    "Moderate Moslem," and "Peaceful Religion," are frivolous and oxymoronic at the same time.

    Another way to view this is, no matter the amount of sexual realignment surgery Adam under goes to become Eve, HE is genetically going to remain Adam. So, too, the person who sits back in silence following Islam, is just the same Moslem as the suicide bomber who kills with bombs.

    Islam declared war on the rest of us circa 600 A.D. and I for one will fight it to the death!

  • tim heekin

    to the muslim above, hamza, whom moral equivalented Shakespeare to Islam; how many people are you aware of that belong to the Religion of Shakespeare?…….another topic; I believe there are two types of muslims, active and inactive. The "inactive" are constantly referred to as "moderates". They are not moderates they are simply awaiting the proper time to become active.

  • Questions

    My definition of a moderate Muslim: A Muslim who temporarily has run out of ammunition.

    • johnnywoods

      Or his AK-47 just jammed.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    It’s hard not to notice the self-hating nature of the first survey conducted by the university of Maryland, as the left is obsessed with why the Islamic world hates the US and blames the US for this hate. Nevertheless, irrespective of their lunatic insanity, Islam obligates all Muslims to have nothing but enmity in their hearts for unbelievers. Thus, the reason that Muslims constantly incite hatred and violence against unbelievers in the West is a manifestation of Islam and not because of what the US does or does not do.

    Unfortunately, many researchers shield themselves from this brute fact out of a fear of being labeled an Islamophobe and the rest of the epithets hurled by the Leftist and Muslim Brotherhood academic and political machinery. In a word, P.C. rules in this field and that is never good for scientific inquiry.

    Unfortunately, P.C. rules at this website as well, as is very evident in Stephen Brown’s article today, The Dark World of the Arab Child Slave Trade, when the reality is it is not the Arab child slave trade but instead the Islamic child slave trade. Thus, in deference to P.C. rules, Stephen Brown like a loon complies with those P.C. rules and at the same time like a racist smears all Arabs by insinuating they participate in the child slave trade. However, I hate to rain on Stephen Brown’s political correct and very racist parade, but Christian Arabs and Druze Arabs aren’t involved with slavery at all, but nevertheless if you listen to what Stephen Brown has to say today, you would believe that only Arabs are involved with slavery, when the reality is being Arab has nothing whatsoever to do with slavery other than a lot of Arabs happen to be Muslims.

    Indeed, to comply with P.C. rules most articles with respect to Israel on this website refer to the fight in Israel as an Arab – Israeli Conflict, when the reality is not all Arabs are fighting against Israel. Indeed, Christian and Druze Arabs aren’t fighting Israel. In fact, what is happening in Israel is not even an Arab – Israeli Conflict at all, but instead a permanent genocidal jihad of conquest being waged against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel by the Islamic world and it is no different from the many other permanent jihads of conquest the Islamic world is also waging perpetually around the world against many other unbelievers such as the Hindu unbelievers in Kashmir and Jammu, the Buddhist unbelievers in Thailand, the Christian unbelievers in the Philippines, the atheist and Orthodox Christian unbelievers in Chechnya and Russia, the animist and Christian unbelievers in the Ivory Coast, the Orthodox Christian Serb unbelievers in Bosnia and Kosovo, etc., etc., etc. ad nauseum. Indeed, Israel’s biggest nemesis today, Iran, is a country largely comprised of Persians and not Arabs. In reality, other than the fact that a lot of Arabs happen to be Muslims, being Arab has exactly nothing whatsoever to do with the fight in Israel. Nevertheless, as if to intentionally mislead its readers, the fight is still called an Arab – Israeli Conflict and the jihad is fictitiously presented as being a conflict that involves only Arabs and Israelis.

  • Jaladhi

    Muslims all over the world are the same!! They keep praying to that rapist, murderer, pedophile, invader, caravan raider, incest promoter, torturer, etc, etc,. Mo/allah and they consider him an "ideal" man and keep on emulating his life and we see the result what have Muslims done to the human world — killed more than 300 million human beings since the seventh century and still continuing to kill to please that murderous satan. This is what they consider "holy" and teach in their mosques and nothing else. They will never admit the truth about Islam how murderous it is but we should keep exposing them at every opportunity we get!!! Truth will kill Islam!!!

  • Stuart Parsons

    There is nothing surprising in thie study. Islam is a far greater threat to the well-being of mankind than fascism and Communism ever were. These Muslims are merely following the teachungs of their self-appointed, delusional and narcissistic 'Prophet and Messenger. Muhammad killed all who spoke out against him. and he and his booty and sex motivated followers. lied. plotted. tortured, killed, robbed, ransomed and raped their way to political and religious power.

  • icobod

    I don't understand what an islamic-American is….could it be another endless tattering of something other than American? How long will America stand silent while the islamic horde slowly digs itself into American society? Where are the Gloria Steinem’s, the anti-slavery, the separation of church and staters, child advocates and Hollywood noise makers? So many questions and so few people…

  • Gamaliel Isaac

    All mosques promote the Koran and the Hadith. They all promote violence.

    • nocal

      Thats right! They promote violence. A curious thing though,. Western governments are protecting them! Try fighting back and see what happens to you. Highly testoteroned gents with nasty black guns will pay you a visit and do violence to you on the Islamsists behalf! You can"t protect you and your government won"t protect you either. We are being enslaved and not a shot being fired in anger.

  • Jerry

    When and until the teaching of the Koran is brought into the 21st century, and those sections of it that refer to Jews and infidels; the creation of a world wide Califate, and the notion that Shiria is the goal of the Muslim world are expunged, we will never be rid of the threat the Muslim world holds over peace loving people.
    Muslims must learn what was relevent 700 years ago and considered normal behavior, is abhored by the world in the 21st century. Their moral view of life is reflected through a distorted 700 year old prism of hate and distrust toward anyone not Muslim.

        Nina, whether 700 or 1400 years is not the point. What is is that the Koran is a dogma that is not acceptable today and as other religions have done, it should be re-examined by Muslim scholars and revised for the good of Muslims as well as the world.

          "it should be re-examined by Muslim scholars and revised for the good of Muslims as well as the world."

          You are right, I completely agree. However, Nina makes a good point, what will make them WANT to do this? I don't see any real large movement from within Islam doing this. Wouldn't the outside (westerners) making the push seen as "colonialism" by Muslims and fought against?

          Also, won't dumping a good portion of the koran/Hadiths make them loose their Muslimness?

          While I don't doubt you have the best intentions, simply stating that this should happen as if it's a possibility is neive.

    Jerry – what you are referring to would be a "reformation" type event within Islam .
    That IS NOT going to happen . The Koran and modern Islam – wahhabist driven dcotrine are going to kill – literally – ANY and ALL who seek to challenge/ REFORM Islam.

    If you want to take a break from the Weiner story, I think you'll enjoy a piece called Mitt Romney Comes to Michigan and Liberals Have a Hissy Fit… You won't believe some of the stuff in that article.

    It is as Col. Allen West says, "If you dig up the grave of Charles Martel, and ask him
    why he fought the Muslims at Tours," he would reply by saying that the Franks didn't
    want to live under Sharia law; "If you dig up the grave of those who fought the Muslims
    at Lepanto," and ask them why they fought, they would reply that they didn't want to live
    under Sharia law; likewise if you dig up the grave of Stephen Decatur, and ask him
    why the U.S. Navy fought the jihadist Barbary pirates; he would reply that they posed
    a very big threat to America; and that they had to be stopped. Islamic Jihad has reared
    its ugly head throughout history; it matters little what the United States or any other country does.

    This makes the majority of mosques, over 80% in America and countries around the world, military command centers utterly dedicated to the overthrow of their host nations. And extremely cruel conquest.That American and other Western governments allow this is shameful beyond words. It makes a mockery of the many brave heroes of the world wars who gave their lives so that we could live in freedom.

    The emotional pain of allowing a 9/11 victory mosque at Ground Zero where our cherished 3,000 where slaughtered without mercy by the followers of Islam, is an unbearable betrayal. It is wicked approval of the suffering, horror and murder of our beloved brothers and sisters by Muslims.

    Punjab: acquittal for 70 Muslim extremists on trial for the Gojra massacre
    Jibran Khan

    In August 2009, ten people died, eight burnt alive. Four churches were destroyed. Threats against Christian witnesses force them to flee to avoid further violence. Muslim leader says Christians “deserve” to be murdered. Catholic priest wonders whether minorities will ever have justice.

    There are no safe places for non-Muslims in majority Muslim countries and areas. Christians, Hindus, Sikhs and other non-Muslims from Muslim nations should have been rescued and taken into our countries. Many millions of infidel-hating, sharia-loving Muslims have been welcomed into our nations instead. G-D help the defenseless!

    To allan:

    Do you not know that kindness is NOT appreciated? It is DESPISED as weakness. In Israel, a Muslim woman was discovered strapped with a bomb belt on her way to the hospital, to blow up among the kind Jewish doctors and nurses who had helped and healed her.

    Does anyone really believe the 'moderate' Muslims meet on Friday to pray for the West to kill the jihadists who are so determined to kill Americans.?

    Wow, I love you guys! My local chapter of the KKK shut down, but I think I found my hom eright here!! Thank you and may all the brown smelly guys be kicked out of our country soon!!

    While valuable and useful data, no one should be surprised at the findings of this important study. For 1400 years islam has been a death cult. It was established in brutal violence and a genocidal culture has obtained ever since. There is no moderate islam; what is needed is a reformist islam that will recognize the virtues of toleration and peaceful co-existence. But islam is incapable of recognizing the natural right non-muslmis have to live and be left alone to pursue their own lives. As such, it is and will remain at war with democracy and western civilization. It is a pity that we have to share the planet with such a wantonly destructive and poisonous ideology.

    “The Hebrew Bible has 5.6% of political violence; The Islamic Trilogy Koran, Sira and Hadith have 31% political violence. “The words devoted to political violence in Islam 327,547; the Bible 34,039″ The Political violence of the Koran is eternal and universal. The Political violence of the Bible is for a particular historical time and place.” Bill Warner, Center for the Study of Political Islam.

    Many Americans know a “Good Muslim” But they are wrong they know a “Bad Muslim” a Bad Muslim is a human. A “Good Muslim” would be following Sharia Law, killing and raping you. Islam in America is weak once it becomes strong many Bad Muslims will be become Good Muslims. Bill Warner, Center for
    the Study of Political Islam.
