Here is yet more of the endless propaganda for Islam that the enemedia constantly inundates us with. Sure, American democracy has a long history with Islam — as an adversary. America fought its first war against the Barbary Pirates, who were Islamic jihadis. Thomas Jefferson had a copy of the Quran not because he admired it, but because he was pursuing that war, and wanted to understand the enemy.
And it gets worse. “The U.S. Constitution itself is said to be influenced by the spirit of the Holy Quran in that it recognizes the inherent rights of the individual, the community, and the universal thread of humanity that connects us all.”
The Constitution does that, but the Quran doesn’t. The Quran devalues women and heaps hatred upon the kuffar. It doesn’t teach “the inherent rights of the individual” on an equal basis. Muslims are worth more than non-Muslims, who are “the most vile of created beings” (Quran 98:6).
The San Francisco Chronicle gives a platform to this deceptive imam, but would it ever give a platform to me or my colleagues to explain the truth about jihad terror? It would sooner take the gaspipe.
“American democracy has a long history with Islam and Shariah law,” by Yahya Shabazz, San Francisco Chronicle, November 6, 2017 (thanks to Vikram):
From the founding of the United States as a nation, there has been Islamic influence.
The Islamic nation of Morocco was the first to recognize America as a nation, in 1777. Muslims fought in the Revolutionary War to win our freedom. Muslims were brought to America during the slave trade. Some of the American founding fathers had copies of the Quran, most notably Thomas Jefferson.
The U.S. Constitution itself is said to be influenced by the spirit of the Holy Quran in that it recognizes the inherent rights of the individual, the community, and the universal thread of humanity that connects us all.
Islam itself goes beyond the bounds of religion, geography and ethnicity; it addresses the nature of the human being to submit only to God. In this sense it outlaws slavery, it equalizes men and women, and it imposes no compulsion on the individual to serve anyone, including God.
Shariah law, contrary to popular belief, is not some strict law put down in books that metes out punishment if someone steps outside the law. Shariah is the guidance of the Holy Quran itself that shows the person the path of life recommended by Allah. It is only when that person ignores the guidance that they suffer the consequences of their own disobedience. When societal laws are broken, then the law of the land is applicable….
