Obama Calls for New Beginning Between U.S., Muslims “In Cairo, president says no single speech can eradicate years of mistrust, adding that America and Islam share common principles of justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
Let’s see what “common principles” we share. Under Shari’a (Islamic) law:
--The Islamic religious leaders are the highest authority in the state—no separation of mosque and State.
--The testimony of a woman is worth only half that of a man.
--Girls may only inherit half that which their brothers inherit.
--A woman who is raped must have four male Muslim witnesses to prove it. Otherwise, she is confessing to adultery and will be stoned to death.
--Girls may be married to old men when they are nine, based on the “perfect example” of the prophet, who married his youngest wife when she was six and consummated the marriage when she was nine, according to the Hadith, sacred Muslim texts..
--Men may beat their wives for refusing sex.
--Non-Muslims (dhimmis) must pay Jizra, a special poll tax, in order to live under an Islamic government. They may not worship openly.
--There is no freedom of speech or the press. Criticizing (insulting) Islam is a crime.
--A Muslim apostate who leaves Islam is punished by death.
--Men may have four wives, women one husband.
--Muslim men may marry infidels, women are punished for doing so, often with death.
--A man may divorce one of his wives with a word, leaving her with no means of support.
--In strict Islamic countries, women may not vote, work, go to school, drive or leave the house without a male relative escort.
--Girls are often killed by male relatives, sometimes for just talking to a man outside the family. This happens among Muslims even in the west. Google “honor killing.”
--Homosexuals are punished with death. Iran regularly hangs them. “Gay Marriage” isn’t even a concept to discuss.
President Obama, who is suddenly bragging about his Muslim roots, may share these “common principles of justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings” with his Islamic ancestors, but I don’t. I don’t think most American do. And I don’t think most Muslims believe we do.
This is not to say there are not millions of decent, moderate Muslims who want to live in peace with us. My wife and I just met one who is a salesperson in Sears, a Sunni from India. She has a son-in-law who is Christian and another who is Jewish. She wants everyone to get along.
What she doesn’t have is a gun, and the fanatics do, so until that changes, she and the other moderate Muslims are as irrelevant as moderate Germans and Japanese were in 1939.
Insh’Allah, it won’t take too many American deaths until this President learns that it takes two sides to make a peace, only one to make a war. Just saying “The War on Terror” is over doesn’t make is so, if they are still killing westerners whenever they can.
