LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Beware Islamic radicalism posing as religion

- - Tuesday, February 18, 2014

There is political sedition undermining the U.S. Constitution, and it is going on in the form of a stealth "jihad" that has as its aim supplanting the Constitution with Islamic Shariah law.

The organization behind this is the Muslim Brotherhood and its front organization in America, the Islamic Society of North America.

These radicals would have you believe that Shariah is part of the religion of Islam and that their stealthy jihad is nothing more than a constitutionally protected right to express religious faith under the First Amendment. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Article VI of the Constitution states, "This Constitution shall be the Supreme Law of the land." The Muslim Brotherhood's stated purpose for this jihad is to "eliminate and destroy America from within by its own hand" as the group seeks the complete and gradual surrender of America to the totalitarian Shariah law.

This is a declaration of war, not a religious movement. Most alarming is the refusal of our elected representatives and the executive branch to realize that America is at great risk of surrendering its constitutional rights and seeing them replaced by Shariah. This spells disaster for America.

We can observe the most egregious examples of replacement of our own laws with Shariah at the highest levels of the Obama administration. There, the Muslim Brotherhood and its adherents insist that the FBI, other intelligence agencies, the military, the State Department and the Justice Department purge voluminous records it deems "offensive to Muslims."

This is a Shariah "blasphemy" demand that has nothing to do with U.S. law.

The shocking truth is that our government is complying with these demands and has purged large numbers of pages of records created by government personnel, who created the documents in conducting national security and law-enforcement activities.

A belief adhered to under Islamism is all Shariah-compliant Islamic communities have the God-given right to step forward and take control of the political apparatus.

All across America where there are growing numbers of Shariah-compliant Muslims clustered in various cities, conflict will arise. In some cases it already has arisen as Islamism begins to struggle for control of America.
