In short, the Islamic Circle of North America is pretty much as unreliable a source as one can imagine for factual information about the unconstitutional - indeed, anti-constitutional - character of Shariah, the real objectives of its adherents elsewhere and here, and the implications for a free society like ours of submitting to this brutally woman-hating, intolerant and repressive doctrine. It would be nice to know who is putting up the $3 million for such an outfit to propagandize and mislead the American people.

We cannot afford to be fooled by Islamists any further, particularly about their ambitions for, to borrow a phrase, fundamentally transforming the United States of America. We need the truth - not taqiyya - about Shariah.
