A nation is comprised of people who follow one set of laws; if there is a two tier system then civil war soon follows. This is the conclusion of many after Mustafa Carroll, Director of the Dallas Cair, gave a speech at a rally in Austin Texas. He said that: “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land”.
For those who have made study of Islam, this is hardly a revelation (the Koran states that there is no God but Allah, and there is no law other than His), but for many who believe in the supremacy of the Constitution and the Rule of Law, his announcement strikes at the very heart of their beliefs.
No country can exist in peace while different systems of justice are applied. Islamic (Sharia) law is actually happening today in many places where traditional Muslims live in segregated communities. This is the most key factor in the rise of female genital mutilation (FGM) in the United States.
CAIR says that they want to promote a relationship of peace between Muslims and non-Muslims, which is clearly the ideal situation, but when a conflict of law arises, it must be “One law for all” that prevails. Anything less and the very concept of a United States falls apart. This argument is not about one religion over another, or one belief system being better or worse; it’s about the very existence of a country with people who can trust and respect each other.
According to US Herald:
The good news is that Mustafa showed his hand when he made this statement. The bad news is people are still going to defend the rise of Islam and claim anyone that raises a warning flag is simply an “Islamaphobe” the left’s favorite term for anyone that is skeptical of Islam. In fact when people did criticize his statement Mustafa came out and said that they were merely “anti-foreign.” What happened to America? Since when did rejecting the laws of this country become acceptable and trying to defend the nation and its values become a bad thing?
