Is Sharia Law Coming to a Neighborhood Near You? Ex-Muslim’s Answer is Terrifying

We’ve entered at time when the Islamic conquest of the West is no longer happening quietly behind the scenes.

Every day, we witness the further surrender of our American values and society in a vain effort to appease Islam.

Sharia Law is here, and, according to ex-Muslim author Raheem Kassam, you can expect it to start affecting your life very soon.

Kassam, a British political activist, recently wrote the book No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You.

Liberty Nation Radio interviewed Kassam about just how dire the threat truly is.

LN: The image on the cover of your book is the Statue of Liberty veiled in a full burka. Is this meant to imply or state outright that the American system of justice is in danger of bowing to Sharia law? Just how great is the threat you outline in your book?

Mr. Kassam: I think it’s a very grave threat, and in fact, the truth is the subtitle of the book should actually be, “How Sharia is already in a neighborhood near you.” That’s the point to which we have gone so far. You can see that all over the United States nowadays, all across Europe as well, and that’s exactly what I did, exactly what I want to do is find out where. Not just where there were large pockets of Muslim migration, but actually where that migration, that ghettoization, that self-segregation was turning into something more … that resembled a sort of dual track system of government, a dual track justice system, a dual track standard of living. Unfortunately, while I wish it were true and while I wish the Anderson Coopers and CNN’s of the world were right when they say these places don’t exist, I’m afraid they are incorrect.

LN: To what extent is Sharia law currently a factor in the American justice system as opposed to the many nations of Europe you visited in writing this book?

Mr. Kassam: Sharia law doesn’t try to be a factor in any other justice system. It holds itself up as a justice system in and of itself. It doesn’t need the authority and the approval of man-made law, as they call it in a derogatory fashion. You have in the United Kingdom, for instance, Sharia councils that exist, and they will weigh in on all manner of issues, be they local family disputes, business disputes, inheritance-related, divorce, marriage, all of that kind of thing.

Your question is a good question in the sense that in the UK we actually acknowledge the power of these councils and these courts because they find their legitimacy in the Arbitration Act, which is an Act of Parliament that allows religious communities to internally arbitrate their own disputes. Unfortunately, you can’t really guarantee fairness, safety, security, integrity when that goes on when you have a parallel justice system because they’re not being held to the same standard as the rest of us.

For instance, we know what the Quran says about women. We know that the Quran states that a woman’s testimony is worth half of that of a man’s. And therefore, when a woman is hauled before a Sharia council in the United Kingdom, her view is deemed to be half as legitimate, half as likely to be the truth, as perhaps the man she is trying to divorce or the man that’s trying to divorce her or the inheritance she’s trying to get, etc., etc.

Now, to use an old tactic from the left, “this is 2017.” You often hear that from the cultural Marxists out there, “This is 2017, how dare we have a Robert E. Lee statue up.” Well, why don’t we have protests against female genital mutilation? This is 2017. Why don’t we have protests against Sharia councils discriminating against women? This is 2017. Why don’t we have a protest against people that are being forced to wear the burka or the hijab or who are being beaten and lashed? This is 2017. But these arguments fall on deaf ears. They have this sort of moral and cultural relativism that they deal with when addressing Islam and radical Islam and fundamentalist Islam.

LN: Let’s talk about the issue of the left and the incompatibility of their pronounced virtue signaling in favor of every form of cultural, racial and gender diversity with their protection of an Islamic tradition that places little to no value on the input of women. How does the left reconcile those seemingly irreconcilable points of view?

Mr. Kassam: Well I don’t think it does, but in the arguments, I have with people about this…they tend to argue, “they’re different, you gotta leave them to their own devices, it’s Islamophobic if you say they can’t exercise their culture and their religion.” Of course, the United States has this incredible freedom of religion … acceptance. It’s built into the very fabric of your society, and of your country. But, when it gets to the point that people are being actively, seriously discriminated against, when women are being lashed, when children are being trafficked and sexually groomed and raped, as is the case in many of these areas…to what extent do we continue to allow this?

You have Maajid Nawaz in the United Kingdom, a former extremist himself, who has turned into a liberal leftist, who is now being shunned and shamed by organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center. They call him a hater, they call him an Islamophobe, and why? He’s still a practicing Muslim. And why do they call him an Islamophobe? Because he does not want Sharia law in the west. And those who think like him are called Uncle Toms; they’re called House Muslims, they’re called Islamophobes, you name it.

It’s not like we can convince the left that they’re wrong on this issue. But at least we can hold up a mirror to them.

LN: Now the issue you constantly bring to the forefront in your book and in this conversation is assimilation, and how Muslims are, or are not, assimilating into the nations where they live. And what you seem to be saying is that Muslims have to a large extent isolated themselves in Islamic ghettos where no non-Muslims, or infidels, are permitted to tread, for fear of what?

Mr. Kassam: Well I mean it’s not like they have a gatekeeper standing at the entryway to these neighborhoods, but it becomes extremely uncomfortable for non-Muslims, for documentarians or police, for journalists, for women, especially white women, and especially blond white women, and I’ve seen that with my own two eyes, to go into these neighborhoods. I know people in the United Kingdom who grew up in those neighborhoods who simply won’t go there anymore because when a non-Muslim goes into that neighborhood, they’re set upon. They can be spat at; they can be shouted at, as I have been. They can be threatened; they can be insulted. The insults, I can’t even say them on radio, that I’ve heard hurled at women in these areas are absolutely extraordinary.

And in some parts of Europe, police don’t even want to go into these neighborhoods anymore, and they certainly won’t go in twos, they will go in sixes, sevens, eights, maybe even ten at a times. The postal services will refuse to deliver to some of them. When I was on a bus in the northern parts of the Parisian suburbs, the bus wouldn’t stop in these neighborhoods because it was too dangerous.

This is…our new reality. I often hear, “Yes, Raheem, sure, but when the Irish came over they ghettoized them, and when the Italians came over they ghettoized,” and so on and so forth. And then the next generation is supposed to integrate, and they did, but the problem with Islamic migration and the difference between all those other migrant groups, whether your average Muslim on the street acknowledges it or even knows it, is that…they believe that their law is better, they believe that their law is God-given and that every other law is man-made and therefore they don’t have to abide by it.

Evangelicals draw critics with ‘Nashville Statement’ on sexuality

(My Comment) No matter the Critics, Gods word in the Bible about this, still stands and He says “Not one jot or tittle shall change” of His word in any culture or era. The world may change but God and what He has said does not!


A group of evangelical leaders who released “the Nashville Statement” on Tuesday — reiterating Christian viewpoints toward same-sex marriage and transgender rights — have come under fire from Nashville’s mayor and critics on social media.

The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW), consisting of a number of evangelical Christian leaders, published a manifesto aimed at addressing issues of sexuality. It was endorsed by scholars, pastors and leaders at a Nashville conference Friday.

“The spirit of our age does not delight in God’s good design of male and female. Consequently, confusion reigns over some of the most basic questions of our humanity,” CBMW President Denny Burk said in the statement.

“The aim of the Nashville Statement is to shine a light into the darkness – to declare the goodness of God’s design in our sexuality and in creating us as male and female.”

Those signing the statement include at least two prominent evangelical figures who are among President Trump’s evangelical advisers: Southern Baptist pastor Jack Graham and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, the Washington Post reported.

Perkins reportedly recommended to Trump to ban transgender people from military service, the New York Times reported.

The “Statement” includes 14 points on issues such as gay, lesbian and transgender rights, and marriage — rejecting what the signers describe as an attitude of “moral indifference” toward those issues.

The first point, for example, reiterates the mainstream Christian position that marriage is between a man and a woman:

“We affirm that God has designed marriage to be covenantal, sexual, procreative, lifelong union of one man and one woman, as husband and wife and is meant to signify the covenant love between Christ and his bride the church,” reads the point, while adding that the group is against same-sex marriage.

“We deny that God has designed marriage to be a homosexual, polygamous, or polyamorous relationship. We also deny that marriage is a mere human contract rather than a covenant made before God.”

The manifesto also takes a swing at transgender rights, claiming in the fifth point that “the differences between male and female reproductive structures are integral to God’s design for self-conception as male or female.”

In perhaps the most criticized point, the coalition affirms that “homosexual immorality or transgenderism” is a “departure from Christian faithfulness” and it is not an issue which “otherwise faithful Christian should agree to disagree.”

The document attracted a number of critics. Nashville Mayor Megan Barry tweeted that the document that is “poorly named and does not represent the inclusive values of the city & people of Nashville.”

Other Twitter users denouned the statement for alleged bigoted views.

HBO’s Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani, tweeted to his 1.7 million followers: F*** the #NashvilleStatement. F*** the evil s— that people justify using religion.”

“The God I know does not support the #NashvilleStatement,” wrote Black Lives Matter leader Deray Mckesson.

Moms Demand founder Shannon Watts attacked the group that drafted the document for voting for Trump and suggesting “Jesus has been hijacked.”

Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro, however, pointed out that the statement’s points are merely mainstream Christian viewpoints.

 

Did I miss the part of the #NashvilleStatement where any serious Christian doctrine changed in the slightest?” he tweeted, adding “File this one under the same category as ‘Pope Condemns Abortion.’”

Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do.

Radical Erdogan Builds 9000 Mosques & Bans Christian Liturgy

 

erdogan-dictator

We see Radical Islam on the rise everywhere and what’s even more disturbing is that these radicals have penetrated almost every part of Europe and America.  Their clear intent is to have more kids than the women of their hosting nations.  Demographics indicate that Sweden is almost a gone case and that it has become the rape capital of Europe. England could follow a similar path in 10-20 years as Muslim women are giving birth to 4 kids on average to every 1.5 children European couples have.    The videos below illustrate how the situation is going from bad to worse.

Then we have Radical Insane Erdogan, the wannabe Sultan whose ambition it is to promote Radical Islam as far as he can. He has built the largest Mosque in the world, and it’s not in Turkey, but it has been constructed in America. Now we find out that he has built almost 9,000 new mosques in Turkey and is banning Christian liturgy.  If the Europe does not wake up to Radical Islam, there will be no Europe to wake up to in the years to come.  The only places that are actively destroying the jihadists are Russia and China

A total of 8,985 mosques were built between 2005 and 2015 by the Turkish government over the last decade in Turkey, according to statistics released by Turkey’s Religious Affairs Directorate

While the Turkish government has built so many mosques across the country with state funds, it has banned Orthodox Christian liturgy in the Sumela Monastery, a historic site in Trabzon.

 

“Trabzon was settled by Greeks probably by the 7th century BC,” writes researcher Sam Topalidis for the website Pontos World. “Trabzon was the ancient capital of the Greek speaking Komnenos Byzantine Kingdom (1204–1461). It survived until 1461, eight years after the fall of Byzantine Constantinople when both localities fell to the Ottoman Turks.”

According to Topalidis, Trabzon’s Muslim population increased dramatically under the Ottoman rule due to:

Muslims moving into the city (Most of the Trabzon’s Muslims were involuntary immigrants)
Deportations of Christians out of the city, probably to Istanbul
Christians converting to Islam, probably for fear of deportation
“However, the most important reason for the conversions was probably due to the higher taxes paid by Christians (compared to Muslims), a strong economic incentive for the poorest Christians,” writes Topalidis.

The tax he refers to is the “jizya tax” — money paid by Christians and Jews in order to be allowed to survive and to keep practising their religion, according to Islamic lawFull Story

President Trump Vows to Protect Religeous Liberty

 

President Trump vowed Thursday to “defend and protect” religious liberty on multiple fronts – describing his recent immigration executive order as part of that goal – during his first appearance as president at the traditional National Prayer Breakfast.

In wide-ranging remarks, the president spoke about the uniting power of faith, honored members of the U.S. military, and even took a swipe at his successor on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” Arnold Schwarzenegger.

“It’s been a total disaster,” Trump said of the show since Schwarzenegger took over as host, reprising his taunts that the ratings have gone “down the tubes” – after he was introduced at the breakfast by “Apprentice” creator Mark Burnett.

“I want to just pray for Arnold if we can,” joked Trump, who is listed in the “Apprentice” credits as the show’s executive producer.

The movie star soon posted a video rejoinder on Twitter, saying, “Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV because you’re such an expert in ratings and I take over your job. Then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”

After his ratings aside Thursday morning, the president moved on to describe his administration’s policies toward national security and immigration as part of an overarching fight for religious liberty.

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION ON RISE AROUND GLOBE

Amid criticism of Friday’s executive order suspending the U.S. refugee program and restricting travel from seven mostly Muslim countries, Trump said his administration is developing a new screening system so that those who want to spread violence and intolerance are not admitted.

“My administration will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty in our land.”

– President Trump

“We will not allow a beachhead of intolerance to spread in our nation,” he said. “… We want people to love us and to love our values.”

Trump also described terrorism as a “fundamental threat to religious freedom” – saying peace-loving Muslims are being targeted and Christians are the victim of “genocide” in the Middle East – as he vowed: “It must be stopped.”

“My administration will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty in our land,” he said.

Trump also used the faith forum to reiterate a vow from his campaign to eliminate the so-called Johnson Amendment, which bars some tax-exempt groups (including religious groups) from taking firm positions on political candidates.

“I will get rid of and totally destroy the Johnson Amendment,” he said.

The breakfast itself marked a moment of calm amid a turbulent start to Trump’s presidency.

His administration since Friday has been battling critics over his executive order on immigration. He unveiled his Supreme Court nominee Tuesday night, touching off an instant battle with Democrats hinting they may try and filibuster – as they simultaneously slow-walk consideration of a slew of remaining Cabinet nominees. Trump’s secretaries of Treasury, Health and more still are not in place.

At the same time, Trump is plowing ahead with a string of meetings with business leaders, phone calls (some of them tense) with foreign heads of state and other executive orders meant to jolt the economy and boost national security. A day earlier, his White House put Iran “on notice” over recent missile tests, a message Trump reiterated on Twitter shortly before Thursday’s prayer breakfast.

Shoring up a key U.S. alliance, Trump also met on the sidelines of the prayer breakfast with King Abdullah II of Jordan.

Trump Vows To Protect Religeous Liberty

State of Georgia demands pastor turn over sermons | Fox News

A lay minister who is suing the Georgia Department of Public Health for religious discrimination has been ordered by the state’s attorney general to relinquish his sermons to the government, according to federal court documents.

“Please produce a copy of your sermon notes and/or transcripts,” Attorney General Samuel Olens wrote to attorneys representing Dr. Eric Walsh.

Click here to join Todd’s American Dispatch: a must-read for Conservatives!

Dr. Walsh said he will not comply with the request.

“No government has the right to require a pastor to turn over his sermons,” Walsh said. “I cannot and will not give up my sermons unless I am forced to do so.”

Walsh, a Seventh-day Adventist lay minister had been hired in May 2014 by as a District Health Director with the Georgia Department of Public Health. A week later, a government official asked him to submit copies of his sermons for review. He complied and two days later he was fired.

His attorneys said the government was curious about sermons Dr. Walsh delivered on health, marriage, sexuality, world religions, science and creationism. He also preached on what the Bible says regarding homosexuality.

He has since filed a federal lawsuit charging state officials with engaging in religious discrimination.

“He was fired for something he said in a sermon,” attorney Jeremy Dys told me. “If the government is allowed to fire someone over what he said in his sermons, they can come after any of us for our beliefs on anything.”

 

Dr. Walsh has assembled a powerhouse legal team comprised of Parks, Chesin & Walbert along with First Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s most prominent religious liberty law firms.

“It’s an incredible intrusion on the sanctity of the pulpit,” Dys said. “This is probably the most invasive reach into the pulpit by the state that I’ve ever seen.”

Neither the attorney general nor his communication director responded to telephone calls or email correspondence.

Dys said the government’s request came as part of the process to build their case against his client. The request, he said, carries the same force of law as a subpoena.

“Pastors and rabbis across the country – especially in the state of Georgia should be frightened that a state would demand all the sermon notes and transcripts of a pastor,” he said. “This is unprecedented.”

It may be unprecedented, but is it illegal?

“I think it is wrong for a state to demand that a pastor turn over his sermons at any time,” Dys said. “It was wrong for the state to ask Dr Walsh for his sermons as part of the job application and hiring process. It was wrong for them to turn around and fire him when they listened to those sermons. And it is wrong now for them to demand that he turn over all the sermons and sermon notes he ever produced going back to when he was 18 years old.”

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins condemned the state’s demand calling it “an alarming display of government intrusion into the sanctity of the church, pastor’s study and pulpit.”

“This is something that I would have expected to see in a communist country, not America,” Perkins told me. “Government scrutiny of speech in the pulpit is unconstitutional, and unconscionable.”

He called on Gov. Nathan Deal, a Republican, to “correct this egregious overreach of the state into church affairs.”

Dr. Walsh also gained the support of Emir Caner, president of Truett-McConnell University, a Christian school based in Cleveland, Georgia.

“A new era has come to our shores, a time where government finds it acceptable to suppress the freedom of religion even to the extent of requesting a minister’s sermons,” Caner said. “As an ordained minister, I know that this is not merely an assault on the messenger, but on the very message of our Sacred Scriptures.”

Caner correctly noted that the government seems to exclusively target one faith – biblical Christianity.

“What the government fails to recognize is that ministers of the Gospel are not hirelings of the state, but ambassadors for our Lord,” he said.

Dr. Walsh was catapulted into the national spotlight when he was invited to deliver the 2014 commencement address at Pasadena City College in California.

Walsh, who was then the director of the city’s public health department, came under fierce scrutiny from LGBT activists and students after someone found online copies of his sermons. He backed out of the speaking engagement – but critics persisted and he was forced to resign his post – after reaching a financial settlement with the city.

Shortly afterwards, he applied for the position in Georgia.

“The state of Georgia fired him for something he said in a sermon,” Dys told me. “It’s almost like the state ransacking the pastor’s study trying to find evidence in a desperate attempt to justify their illegal behavior.”

Dys said the attorney general could ask a judge to enforce their request. If Dr. Walsh still refused, he could face contempt of court.

“No one in America should want a pastor being held in contempt for refusing to give up one of his sermons to the state of Georgia,” he said.

Military court claims power to decide ‘importance’ of religion

REALLY?  CLEARLY, there are many people in this country who need a basic history course explaining how and why this country was founded…  Lance Cpl. Monifa Sterling, our prayers are with you.

 

In a stunning ruling that likely will be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, a military court has decided it can determine whether or not a certain religious practice is “important” enough to be protected.

“This is absolutely outrageous,” said Kelly Shackelford, president of First Liberty Institute, after the decision in the case against a Marine who posted a Bible verse at her work station.

“A few judges decided they could strip a Marine of her constitutional rights just because they didn’t think her beliefs were important enough to be protected,” he said. “If they can court-martial a Marine over a Bible verse, what’s to stop them from punishing service members for reading the Bible, [talking] about their faith, or praying?”

“The Liberty Amendments” is the blueprint on how to fix our broken government by Mark Levin, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of “Liberty and Tyranny” and “Ameritopia.” Order it today at WND’s Superstore.

WND reported at the end of 2015 when a lower military court delivered the judgment against Lance Cpl. Monifa Sterling, who, at three places in her work space, posted a phrase from Isaiah 54:17, “No weapons formed against me shall prosper.”

According to the brief, her supervisor said, “I don’t like the tone” and told her to remove the verses.

“When Sterling declined, her supervisor took them down at the end of the duty day. Sterling reprinted and re-posted the messages, but she found them in the trash the next morning. She was then court-martialed,” according to the complaint.

“No one in our military who goes to work every day to defend our freedoms should then be court-martialed for exercising those very freedoms,” said Daniel Briggs, a former Air Force JAG officer now with the Alliance Defending Freedom, at the time.

“This case is about Monifa, but it is also about every American who puts on the uniform in service to this country. The question is whether they will be allowed to exercise their faith in the military, or whether they will be denied the same constitutionally protected freedoms they have volunteered to defend and are willing to die for.”

The latest development, this week, was an affirmation by the Court of Appeals of the Armed Forces’ punishment of Sterling.

The next step will be an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, her legal team said.

“This is a real-life example of why judges shouldn’t play theologians,” said Daniel Blomberg, legal counsel of the Becket Fund, which filed a friend-of-the-court brief supporting Sterling.

“Here, a few judges concluded that keeping scripture nearby isn’t ‘important,’ even though more than half of the world’s population belong to religions that teach the exact opposite. Avoiding obvious errors like this is why RFRA protects all religious beliefs, not just beliefs that government officials deem ‘important.’”

The organization pointed out that Sterling’s co-workers were permitted to keep nonreligious messages on their desks. And it argued her actions were protected by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

One judge on the military panel disagreed with the punishment, noting that federal law “does not empower judges to curtail various manifestations of sincere religious belief simply by arbitrarily deciding that a certain act was not ‘important’ to the believer’s exercise of religion.”

The Becket Fund’s brief was on behalf of religious faiths, including Anglican, Catholic, Jewish, Lutheran, Mormon, Muslim, Presbyterian, Sikh and Southern Baptist.

“Last I checked, Marines weren’t afraid of anything – and they certainly don’t need to be afraid of religious liberty,” said Blomberg. “In fact, it was the military itself that taught our young country how protecting religious liberty is good for our nation, good for mission accomplishment.”

Mike Berry, director of military affairs for First Liberty, pointed out: “Gen. Patton famously prayed on the eve of battle. According to the majority [court] opinion, if Gen. Patton couldn’t prove how important praying was to him, he could be court-martialed for his prayer.”

Shackelford took up the argument.

“This is shameful, it’s wrong, and it sets a terrible precedent, jeopardizing the constitutional rights of every single man and woman in military service. We will appeal directly to the U.S. Supreme Court. This cannot be allowed to stand.”

The court’s dissenting minority pointed out the failings of the majority’s logic.

“At trial, LCpl Sterling adequately demonstrated that the actions for which she was being court-martialed constituted ‘religious’ conduct. [She] testified that both the substance and placement of her signs were inspired by her Christian faith. The slips of paper that LCpl Sterling placed on her workspace were organized in the form of the ‘trinity,’ an unmistakable Christian motif, and on them was printed a biblically inspired quotation: ‘No sword formed against me shall prosper.’

“There is no doubt that LCpl Sterling’s conduct required further analysis under the provisions of RFRA.”

The dissent warned: “It has long been recognized that courts are particularly ill equipped to govern what does or does not constitute ‘religion.’ … The majority opinion ventures beyond that which is necessary to decide the issue before us. In the course of doing so, the court not only fails to ensure the proper application of RFRA to LCpl Sterling’s specific case, it more generally imposes a legal framework that unnecessarily curtails the religious freedom of our nation’s servicemen.”

Before the decision was announced, Ron Crews, executive director of Chaplain Alliance for Religion Liberty, commented, “Congress and the courts have made it clear that religious freedom is truly our first freedom; it must not be watered down and should be burdened only in the most extreme circumstances.

“This is just as true in the military. Though it is a unique institution with a mission that must be accomplished, service members cannot be forced to check their faith when they put on the uniform. Their religious freedom is more precious than ever before and must be strongly defended. Those who are willing to give all deserve nothing less.”
