Subverting America’s Legal System

Pages: 1 2

Scholar of Islam Andrew Bostom, interviewed recently about Islamic anti-Semitism here and here at FrontPage, has brought to our attention a revealing, 47-page Arabic-language document discovered by the Center for Security Policy and translated into English by his colleague at Translating Jihad. The paper was published by the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) in 2007, and presented at their 2008 careers conference in Houston. The document makes it clear that AMJA’s ultimate goal, as Bostom puts it, “is nothing less than the eventual subversion of the American legal system” to sharia law.

AMJA’s website explains that the group’s purpose is to service the growing Muslim population living in the non-Muslim Americas, giving them authoritative guidance as to what is allowable under the manmade laws of “infidel lands.” The organization also offers itself as “an authentic source of Islamic learning and thought for all peoples of the Americas.” All peoples who understand Arabic, that is. For those who do and who care to investigate, the organization reveals its subversive agenda.

As Translating Jihad notes about the newly discovered document from AMJA, the paper

makes clear that according to Islam, the only legitimate law is that which comes from Allah, and in fact authority to make laws rests with Allah alone. This renders every other legal system — including the American system — illegitimate.

Naturally, in the United States everyone is expected to abide by the law, under which all are equal, Muslims included. But AMJA’s authoritative rulings require all Muslims to defer to the law of infidels only according to darura, the doctrine of necessity, for “it is required for a Muslim to be hostile to courts which rule by man-made law.” As Translating Jihad states in his assessment,

Throughout the paper it is made abundantly clear that Muslims should view the American and other non-Muslim legal systems as infidel systems, and that they are only to participate in them in specific circumstances in order to benefit Islam and Muslims generally. They are specifically instructed to feel hatred in their hearts toward such infidel legal systems, and to do everything within their power to make the Islamic Shari’a supreme, even if that means engaging in deception in certain cases.

Even if it means engaging in deception. It is disturbing enough that such direction is being given to, say, the average Muslim called in for jury duty, but this is expected to apply to Muslims higher up the legal ladder as well – from legal aide to attorneys all the way up to judges. A Muslim judge too, according to the document, “must in his heart hate the man-made law”:

He must also do everything in his power to enact laws that allow the Muslims to practice their Shari’a. He must keep it in his mind that he was not permitted to take this job except to serve Islam and Muslims. He must also… judge by the rulings of the Shari’a as much as possible, even if by a ruse.

So a Muslim judge is allowed to participate in the infidel system of justice only to serve Islam and fellow Muslims, not everyone who comes before his bench without discrimination, and he must rule as much as possible according to the dictates of sharia without attracting undue attention to his true intentions and loyalty.

    The Left has paved the way for the Muslims, so it will be easier than anyone would have imagined, especially before Imambama lied his way into the Whitehouse. The Left has twisted our laws to defeat this nation, and the Muslims will follow suit, with their help.

    Notice that both the Left, and Muslim jihadists, elevate dishonesty to the level of virtue. They both operate according to the great anti-ethic, the end justifies the means. They both enforce linguistic tyranny, and their ultimate solution to "problems" is to apply Procrustean method. The onlyreal difference is that one is atheistic and the other pseudo-theistic.

      The only action possible to start to reverse this situation is to VOTE OBAMA, ALL DEMOCRATS, AND ALL RINOS OUT OF OFFICE IN 2012!

      • Roger

        Yes, and Boehner is just as much part of the problem as the marxist left.
        When you don't stand up to evil, you allow it to thrive.

        If Newt was still speaker I have to wonder how many times the word "Impeach" would have been brought up.

      • Georgina

        RINOs are not the problem – religious fanatics are.

        • John

          Yes- religious fanatics are a large part of the problem, and they are without exception Muslin fanatics acting according to the teachings of their religion!! They are the ONLY group wrapping themselves in bombs and committing suicide while simultaneously killing innocent people around them. Christians are not attacking innocents nor the US military with IED, AKA47 rifles, not beheading people, committing honor killings, and more. It is all Muslim. Liberals are aiding and abeting the Muslim followers by refusing to acknowledge reality. RINOS fall into that category as well by going along with liberals in the political world.

  • jacob

    And there are still people who believe Islam to be a religion of peace ???

    And our useless State Dept. still imports this plague like going out of style ???

    Is this pendulum ever go back ???

    I doubt it,
    Our hands are tied by the same laws they will abrogate in the end…
    Shame people don't bother to at least, read the "holy" Koran (same one OBAMA ordered handled
    with kid gloves) and learn about deception from it….and you'll find out it advises the faithful to hide
    their religion whenever dangerous or inconvenient to be known as a Muslim….

    Slowly, under the control of the Liberala (Socialists) our legal system has become…well…a joke!

  • ISAIAH5417

    The secular mindset prevents many-many people from understanding the overwhelming spiritual impetus behind Islamic jihad. Secular westerners do not believe in God or in God's rebellious son, Lucifer. Islam is a dead-wrong theology but its devotees believe it with all their hearts and burn hot with evangelical zeal for their faith. Why do Western secularists find Islamic zeal romantic and Christian zeal offensive? Both are systems of revealed religion originating in the land of Abraham. Islam's founder was an illiterate duped by Satan who disguised himself as an angel of light. The legacy of Mohammed's depraved inspiration is 1500 years of murder and oppression. Christianity's founder himself did nothing but good and taught peace while adding one new commandment to the Old Law–"love one another even as I have loved you." Evil men have perverted the living doctrine of Christ for their own ends but the doctrine itself is in diametric opposition to the man-made doctrine of Islam. (cont'ud)

  • ISAIAH5417

    (cont'ud) So why do secular westerners caucus with Islamic zealots who mean them nothing but harm & death and in the same moment condemn Christianity out-of-hand? The words of condemnation that Christ pronounced against the Pharisees of Old Jerusalem give the answer: "You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

    Islamic devotees make an art of murder and lying. Secular westerners who have no inclination toward or clue about the spiritual foundations of reality are by default complicit in the Satanic evil of Islam. Snap out of it or reap the whirlwind.

    America cannot be a free nation with a large population of Muslims. Just like we had to purge members of the Communist party from positions of power, so to it will be necessary to forbid Muslims any political power, access, or influence, and we must forbid any further immigration of Muslims to this country.

    • John C. Davidson

      This is the year we should purge this nation of the Socialists!

      • Roger

        In the case of Obama it would be a 'two-fer'.

  • allysonwillner

    Why would anyone want to subvert the American legal system?? Our legal system is the reason I know I can live at home safely without fear of my government coming in and taking all of my possessions and my husband cannot sell me to someone else because I'm a woman! I'm proud to be an American and this is the greatest country in the world!

    • W. C. Taqiyya

      No offense lady, but you obviously never sat in a courtroom anywhere in America. Do yourself a favor and sit in your local municipal court while justice is dished out. If you don't soon realize you are watching legal extortion in action, you are stupid and can't be helped.

    • John

      IF the Muslim religion continues to make inroads in this country the very things you now enjoy will disappear- look at the history of what happens when Muslims take over. That is why it is imperative to stop it now before it gets any further entrenched in our country. It is evil; I fear it is even more evil than communism.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Didn't read this article, but the solution is simple, outlaw Islam on the grounds that Islam is not a religion but a supremacist theo-political totalitarian ideology that masquerades as being a religion to dupe the gullible societies it intends to subjugate into a very draconian form if Islamic totalitarianism, and then ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage ASAP.

    Indeed, we cannot import Muslims into this country without at the same time also importing Sharia and Jihad into the country as well, since Sharia and Jihad are intrinsic to Islam and you can't have one of them without the others. Indeed, Sharia is the will of Allah and Jihad is the sixth and most important pillar of Islam.

    Hence, legislation to stymy Sharia from getting into the legal system in the long run is useless, as once the population of covert jihadists living in American as a fifth column reaches critical mass, it will be infused into the legal system regardless. Thus, again the only viable solution is to outlaw Islam and ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration ASAP. Which, by the way, would also make violent jihad attacks on the homeland virtually impossible and at the same time eliminate the much greater threats stemming from mass infiltration and stealth demographic conquest. Plus, the hundreds of billions of dollars we are already wasting today to protect the homeland and to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, could be used instead to get our financial house back in order.

    It's not rocket science; it's common sense.

  • W. C. Taqiyya

    Yes, the Muslims are taking over. What's your point? Stop crying and start expelling, if you care. As for the vaunted American legal system, what legal system? The Constitution is dead, dude. Isn't it about time you woke up to that fact? The president can kill any American he wants to. The president can go to war with no Congressional approval. Police are shooting unarmed people nearly every day and they always get away with it. Probable cause is just a memorable inconvenience of the past. There's one thing you can say about Muslims which you can't say about Americans. Muslims really belief and are willing to kill and die for their legal/political/religious system, as barbaric as it may be. They enjoy the strength of their convictions. Whereas, most Americans are weak, stupid and still living in a dreamworld.

      I don't know what the heck you are talking about. I spent the last 16yrs. in the court and for the most part, the judges seat is filled with good men and women who want to see the rule of law upheld. No, it is not always perfect, but even in the decisions that I don't agree with I could at least see why the judge or jury ruled as they did. As far as cops shooting people every day and getting away with it, that is pure nonsense and the statistics don't support your assertion. I never shot anyone in 16yrs. and watched the hell cops go through when they do use deadly force. Sure, the system isn't perfect and mistakes do happen, but compared to other systems of jurisprudence the American system stands head and shoulders above the rest.

  • Ghostwriter

    Most Americans are rightfully afraid of sharia law,seeing how it's been applied in Muslim countries. Unfortunately,we're going to be called bigots if we try to ban this from American courts.

    • Roger

      Can I volunteer for a bigot label?

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Even if it means engaging in deception.

    What's so unusual about that? Indeed, all Muslim immigrants to the USA are really covert and deceptive non-violent jihadists here for the purpose of mass infiltration and stealth demographic conquest. Except for those that occasionally resort to violent jihad, of course.

    Indeed, we should not be spending hundreds of billions of dollars annually to protect the homeland from occasional violent jihad attacks, while at the same time allowing mass Muslim immigration, which is really covert and deceptive non-violent jihad for the purpose of mass infiltration and stealth demographic conquest. Instead, we should outlaw Islam on the grounds that it isn't a religion but instead a theo-political totalitarian ideology that masquerades as being a religion to dupe the gullible societies it intends to subjugate into a very draconian form of Islamic totalitarianism, and ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage ASAP. As zero Muslim covert jihadists living in America as a fifth column would make violent jihad attacks on the homeland virtually impossible and at the same time eliminate the much greater threat stemming from mass infiltration and stealth demographic conquest. Then all the hundreds of billions of dollars we currently spend annually to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage and to protect the homeland could be used instead to get our financial house back in order.

    The implementation of sharia is obviously a big step in legitimizing theocratic authority. Theocratic authority cannot coexist within the context of an open, transparent and democratic government therefore, it is impossible to support sharia and democracy as they are mutually exclusive. This point seems obvious to me yet many westerners are still clueless, including some on the right.

  • Newspaniard

    The findings of muslim judges should be looked at closely to ensure they are following USA law correctly and not those of the islamofascist death cult. How many have received sharia sentences and been unable to appeal through ignorance or poverty? How many islamists have been freed where they would have otherwise been gaoled?

    • Georgina

      or those who claim not to be muslims but still bring in a shariah compliant verdict – Martin for example.

  • graciemathers

    why would they use terms like 'infidel lands' when living here?? That raises so many red flags for the rest of us who are scared that our middle-eastern looking neighbor is going to end up being some sort of crazy person that has an agenda against us! It makes me paranoid just thinking about it and scared to even go outside of my house, and to just sit at home watching Maury with my shotgun and attack dog!

  • Schlomotion

    What is odd to me is that the Center for Security Policy, which is simply Frank Gaffney, translated into English this obscure Muslim document, in essence doing a great service for Islamist wannabes who have not taken the time to learn Arabic. CSP describes itself as a "non-partisan educational corporation" when it is clearly not a school, and clearly partisan. It is not Democrat or Republican partisan. It is shadow party Neoconservative and Likud partisan.
