Daniel Greenfield supplies a bracing example of Sharia law.
Islam is peaceful. Just ask Rafiqi Islam, a loving husband, who told his wife that he had a present for her, blindfolded her to make it a surprise and then cut off her fingers. Then the rest of the Islam family mopped up the blood, while Mr. Islam threw her fingers into the trash, and after a few hours took her to the hospital where they warned her to tell the doctors that she had an accident.
The proximate cause of this event was that Mrs. Islam wanted to continue her education and Mr. Islam being a good Emirati Muslim was not so fond of the idea.
This is the sort of thing that Mr. Islam does from time to time. Diners in London got a surprise from Mr. Islam, three of him, who began stabbing and slashing their way through some trendy nightspots. The blindfold had been slapped on them by their own government and their own media.
Close your eyes while hundreds of thousands of Muslim migrants show up in America and Europe. Keep your eyes closed and Mr. Islam will give you a great big surprise.
For Europe, it’s more likely to be somewhere on the order of seven million. But that doesn’t mean America isn’t affected. John Guandolo gives us a synopsis of what he’s covered the last several years in his own work.
From Minneapolis (MN) to Hamtramck (MI) to Falls Church (VA) to Paterson (NJ) and many other towns and cities across the fifty states, the Islamic Movement is quietly conquering America.
The federal government sleeps, many state governments – including those controlled by Republicans – do their best to accommodate muslims waging Civilization Jihad against America, and the hard-left Marxists – including nearly all of the local and national media – are collaborators in the enemy’s efforts.
As UTT has previously reported, Minneapolis, Minnesota is currently enemy-held territory and will require force to take back.
Hamtramck, Michigan is a small suburb of Detroitistan, and is the first town in America to have a majority muslim city council. This formerly Polish-Catholic town has been overrun by sharia-adherent muslims who have already achieved accommodations for sharia in the community.
Falls Church, Virginia is home to the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas’ Dar al Hijra Islamic Center. The Muslim Brotherhood leader of Dar al Hijra, Sheikh Shaker Elsayed (former President of the MB’s Muslim American Society), recently gave a lecture promoting female genital mutilation. Dar al Hijra is a jihadi factory whose property is owned by the MB’s bank NAIT (North American Islamic Trust).
Al Qaeda’s Anwar al Awlaki was the Imam of the Dar al Hijra beginning in January 2001 and serving for over a year there.
The community around Dar al Hijra has been taken over by sharia-adherent muslims. Law enforcement calls the two twin apartment buildings in the area “Taliban Towers,” and the number of jihadis in this area of Northern Virginia, only minutes from the nation’s capital, is significant.
Historically, Paterson, New Jersey has been a melting pot of Irish, Germans, Dutch, Italians, Eastern Europeans and others. Christians and Jews made a home in this town approximately 20 miles outside of New York City.
Now, estimates put the number of muslims in Paterson at over 30% of the total population. This number – possibly over 40,000 – makes Paterson, New Jersey the town with the one of the highest concentrations of muslims in the United States. Many Turks and Syrians are a part of the muslim community, but the majority are Palestinians/Hamas. Many citizens are concerned for their safety and security.
He goes on, but then it’s so easy to do just that. As for the U.K., Islamists are already part of the warp and woof of the culture. It cannot be eradicated by closing the borders. A Firearms Officer with the Metropolitan Police thinks that more police are necessary to bring security. But he uses language reminiscent of the counterinsurgency experience in Northern Ireland. Attempts to use the British experience there is why the British failed in both Basra and the Helmand Province.
In Northern Ireland the British were dealing with a people who were like minded in culture and (even though you might think differently) religion. What the U.K. faces now is totally different, and would require a major paradigm shift in thinking as well as a rearming of the British people, not just LEOs. This – they will not do. I judge the U.K. as finished because of this. Subjects of the crown will always be just that: subjects of the crown.
Here in America we face a different enemy. The proximate enemy might be the uber-powerful state, or it might be Islam. There are many dangers. But the immediate danger has to do with the thought framework within which we function. So here I am going to address something that needed to have been said long ago.
While my reputation might be one of throwing around tough language when it’s necessary, or just whenever I feel like it, in the end I am still a Christian. I eat with you, live among you, worship with you, and know how you think. I am not addressing those outside my own world view. To be sure, I take great amusement in drilling holes in opposing world views. If you believe that upon death the body cools to ambient temperature and that’s the end, you certainly have the freedom to believe that way, unimpeded by me.
If you want to tackle me for my world and life view, as I said, I find great amusement and pleasure in such things. But you don’t make me the least bit nervous about my own views. I took all the course work in philosophy, systematic theology and apologetics to hold my own in such a throw down. But that’s a subject for a different time. Right now I want to address Christians, because the Christian community in America is in need of a major intervention. You know it’s true.
I’ve addressed it before, this idea that God expects us to defend ourselves and others because of the image of God. But there is no end to the silly and trite pacifists who think they are being brave by eschewing self defense. So let’s say it again. Jesus demanded that his disciples seek weapons for their own defense, and not only did He do that, He told them to become criminals by doing so.
… for some evidence, see Digest 48.6.1: collecting weapons ‘beyond those customary for hunting or for a journey by land or sea’ is forbidden; 220.127.116.11 forbids a man ‘of full age’ appearing in public with a weapon (telum) (references and translation are from Mommsen 1985). See also Mommsen 1899: 564 n. 2; 657-58 n. 1; and Linderski 2007: 102-103 (though he cites only Mommsen). Other laws from the same context of the Digest sometimes cited in this regard are not as worthwhile for my purposes because they seem to be forbidding the possession of weapons with criminal intent. But for the outright forbidding of being armed while in public in Rome, see Cicero’s letter to his brother relating an incident in Rome in which a man, who is apparently falsely accused of plotting an assassination, is nonetheless arrested merely for having confessed to having been armed with a dagger while in the city: To Atticus, Letter 44 (II.24). See also Cicero, Philippics 5.6 (§17). Finally we may cite a letter that Synesius of Cyrene wrote to his brother, probably sometime around the year 400 ce. The brother had apparently questioned the legality of Synesius having his household produce weapons to defend themselves against marauding bands. Synesius points out that there are no Roman legions anywhere near for protection, but he seems reluctantly to admit that he is engaged in an illegal act (Letter 107; for English trans., see Fitzgerald 1926).
He told them it doesn’t matter what the state says. They are to arm themselves. Period. The most high God said so. It wasn’t an option. It was a commandment. And yet, we still see supposed Christians who are reluctant to arm up, raised in the “Jesus was a Bohemian Hippie Flower Child” culture of Christianity.
But the second problem is one that is a bit harder to fisk. It has to do with eschatology. Bear with me for a moment. Millions upon millions of Christians in America believe in something called dispensationalist, premillennial eschatology. In brief, it holds that the Church is a “parenthesis” in history, a divine “uh oh.” Didn’t mean for that to happen. God’s people are still the Jews, and this parenthesis ends when he “raptures” the church out of the world and deals with Israel.
The church gets to sit on its ass, do nothing, watch stupid night time sitcoms, avoid affecting the world around them, and look like the rest of the world, and then avoid what it has created with its sloth, laziness and inaction. It’s a magic solution that let’s the church go blindly into the future thinking that everything is going to be okay regardless of what they do or don’t do.
But at no time in history has God ever allowed His church to neglect affecting the world and yet avoid the wake of judgment that creates. The times this has happened in history are too numerous to cite, but suffice it to say that the Jews aren’t special, there will be no thousand year peaceful reign in Jerusalem, there will be no rapture, and God doesn’t suffer His church to become fools.
Trouble is coming, and in fact it is already here. Things are going to get a lot worse, not better, at least for a while, and for the Christians reading this who have flirted with this ridiculous ideology, you’d better gun up. Moreover, you need to think hard about these things. To be sure, you need to be in decent physical shape by staying active when you can, whether it is carrying body armor and doing squad rushes, or simply hard exercise. You also need to be practicing with your weapons.
But the root of the problem lies deeper. You need to develop a thought framework for violence. When is it acceptable? Under what conditions? What would it take to meet that threshold? What do you do when that threshold is met? How prepared are you mentally to accept the challenges that will bring? Do you have a plan?
If you don’t know the answers to those questions, you need to do some serious reflection. The theologians aren’t going to help you. They’re lost in a world of racial reconciliation and a theology of togetherness. Or you might be like the writer I cited earlier who thinks he is being brave by ignoring defense of his family. Very well. Your girls will wear hijabs and marry child molesters, your sons will pray to Mecca five times a day, your wife will be so fearful of losing her life she doesn’t even go out of the house, and you will work your entire life to enrich pagans and barbarians if they don’t kill you first.
Time is short, and the situation is serious. The shortness of the time calls for an honest appraisal. Within what mental and intellectual framework will you operate?

Virginia imam has been filmed advocating for female genital mutilation,
describing it as the 'honorable thing to do’ for young girls.
Shaker Elsayed seemed to throw his support behind the practice during a
lecture at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia,
’(Circumcism is) a sunna
for the boys, and the honorable thing to do – if needed – for the girls.
This is something that a Muslim gynecologist can tell you if you need
to or not,’ he said in the video, which was posted on the center’s
YouTube page before being removed.
Sunna is a word used to describe traditional Islamic practices.

***The WAR on Women is real… So, they toss Gay’s off roof tops, hold their little girls down and perform FGM on them. Don’t allow women to leave their homes without a man. Don’t allow Women to vote or drive (not in every country, I know..). Support sharia law. Most have no intention of becoming “Americans.” And they are embraced by the left, who also HATE Christians who do not condone any of this.
I’m feel like I’m living in Supermans’ Bizarro world. Sad days ahead for my Grandkids..
Muslim faithful throughout the world are currently observing the holy month of Ramadan. Observant Muslims participate in fasting (sawm), one of the five pillars of their faith, this entire Lunar month. Eating, drinking, smoking and sexual activity is prohibited from dawn until sunset. Along side restraining from bad intentions,desires, and superficial needs. The fast is broken at sunset with the evening meal called Iftar. Local customs define varying traditions, including differing types of food used to break the daily fast. [Children, women in pregnancy/menses, sick/poor health individuals, and those traveling do not have to fast.] During this time, Muslims are also encouraged to read the entire Quran, to give freely to those in need, give charity, and strengthen their ties to God through prayer. The fasting is meant to teach a person patience, humility and sacrifice, to set aside time to ask forgiveness, practice self-restraint, and pray for guidance in the future.
