Sharia Law: Tearing the West in Two

CBNNEWS.COM: Sharia, or Islamic law, is gradually working its way into public life in Islamic and non-Islamic nations around the world.

What is it and what does sharia mean for Christians and others forced to abide by it?

"Sharia law is a legal system on the teachings of the Qur'an, the Sunna and the Hadith of Mohammed applied into the community as the legal basis for life," Jeff Hammond, with Bless Indonesia, said.

Hammond is a Christian who has lived and worked in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, for 35 years. He says Indonesian Christians are concerned about creeping sharia law, now in place in half of the country's 32 provinces.

"It's going from one province to another, it's not something that's happening all at once, but step by step," Hammond said.

Cruel and Usual Punishment

For example: even Christian school girls are forced to cover their heads in Padang province. Elsewhere in Indonesia, children attending public schools are required to learn the Qur'an.

In Indonesia's Bandeh Aceh province, shariah police make nightly patrols to ensure that unmarried or non-related couples are not seen together in public.

"Christians are very concerned, not only because of what is happening here in Indonesia, they also see reports that are coming from other countries," Hammond explained.

In Islamic nations like Somalia, devotion to Sharia law caused vigilantes to behead a 25-year old aid worker for converting from Islam to Christianity.

In Iran, women are legally stoned to death for committing adultery.

In Afghanistan, prostitutes are executed for their behavior.

In Pakistan, the government apparently has accepted the imposition of sharia law in the Taliban controlled Swatt Valley of the northwest frontier province. It's a place where violators of sharia are often subjected to lashes.

Enforcement of Pakistan's blasphemy laws have led to the imprisonment of Christians, like 20-year old Sandal Bibi and her father Gul Sheer on charges of blasphemy against the Qur'an. Ripping the West in Two >>> By Gary Lane, CBN News Reporter | Thursday, February 19, 2009

What's screwed up... is that it's here too. Over at Moonabttery, they blogged about "Islamberg" that;s in Virginia where they have a compound with armed Muslim guards and such. What do ya think they are planning and training for? The ultimate tea and cupcake party? I doubt it. And then again, I doubt the Obamessiah would do a damn thing about it too.

No, it won't be a "cupcake party"; of that, be sure!

As for the new Messiah: He'll certainly do nothing about it. Be sure of that, too!

And pray tell why should Oxybarama betray his islamic origins or allow christianity to continue ruling the US when the "born again" christian Bush feted and toasted Islamic leaders, celebrated Ramadan in the WH, allowed the murderer Khatami to lecture in America's university, to mention a few? With the loony leftists and liberal lemmings chorusing along the way? With hedonistic Americans nodding happily.

At his inaugaration the Zero pronounced he would use his full name i.e. HUSSEIN is in, a clear depart from the distance with Islam he maintained during his campaign.

Senator Obama in 2004.
He stated, "I'm rooted in the Christian tradition."

At his inauguration he said:
"The United States is a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and non-believers."
He has yet to provide his Baptism Certificate.
Never mind that the US was founded by Christians as a Christian nation.

And it was reported that Obama dissed the Marine Corp Band - and ruled that Arabic language song will be played at public events replacing the traditional "Hail to the Chief"
And to hammer his anti-christian islam advocating policy, read his Stimulus Bill that targets: Christians!

The clueless left and the lobotomised Americans who voted the Change found it rather chic.

As for the UK, bending on one's knees in grief for sins committed against muslims and embracing sharia is the way, according to the treacherous, traitorous "christian" archenemy of Christ rowan Williams .

Which hedonistic Brits humbly accept.

Western banks are turning to "sharia compliant" banking ideas as a way of proping up there shaking institutions.
They do this w9ith no care or little understanding of the future outcomes of acceptance of this anti-Western practice, and seem to wallow in their own grovelling to get finance from even the most despotic regimes.
British banks under Gordon Brown are constantly flouting the "sanctions" against Zimbabwe, though that is partly because the sanctions themselves are not worth the paper they weren't written on.
Briatian has helped make the Zim dictators mightily rich and their relatives flout their ill-gotten wealth from their Euor palaces.
Europe must fall and flounder then perhaps the People will realise that they ahve been sold into a new form of slavery.
Mental slavery and Islam are bedfellows.

I still have to pinch myself from time to time when I think about the Obama landslide. How could the Americans have been so naïve?

We have observed just how much principle bankers have during recent events, haven't we? In short: They have none!

People will realise that they ahve been sold into a new form of slavery.

Yes, only people haven't woken up the reality yet. They will though. The big question is: Will it be too late?

As for slavery and Islam being bedfellows, I couldn't agree with you more. Islam is a form of bondage. Bondage to a fairytale!

Once i was sent to shoot Manoa valley for a Ramadan prayer session in 2001. The number of attendees was quite a shocker. The looks and glares i received were beyond the regular stink-eye the camera guy comes to expect. Yet they had sent out a press release inviting coverage, which is all a part of this cultural understanding and sensitivity training, i call it cultural jihad.

That's exactly what it is: "cultural jihad"!
