Congressman Says Islamic Terrorists Are Crossing Our Borders
Last week, Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) told Fox News that at least 10 ISIS fighters have been apprehended crossing our porous southern border …
“I know that at least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the Mexican border in Texas … but you know there’s going to be dozens more that did not get caught by the Border Patrol. [I]f you want to protect Americans from ISIS, you secure them from the southern border… [T]he only way that ISIS is going to harm Americans is by coming in through the southern border, which they already have.”
With ISIS crossing our borders, coupled with the infiltration of other radical factions like the Muslim Brotherhood into the ranks of our government, the rising influence of Sharia, will continue to have a growing influence on our nation’s laws and public policy.
At its core, Sharia is the application of Islamic law to the everyday lives of Muslims, and the application of justice according to the Quran and Hadith (Islamic writings).
Sharia encompasses every aspect of a Muslim’s life, from religious observances to personal finances.
Sharia is the antithesis of the Western legal tradition.
Sharia dictates penalties for many offenses that significantly differ from U.S. law. For instance, Sharia prescribes that extra-marital sex, theft, and highway robbery can be punished by stoning, death, or severe flogging. Other punishments can include amputation, forced exile, or execution.
Blasphemy laws in many Islamic countries allow Christians or members of other religions to be arrested, punished and even executed for “insulting” Islam.
Sharia also prescribes that…
- A Muslim man can beat his wife for disobedience (which was at the core of a 2009 case in New Jersey in which Sharia was validated in a U.S. court).
- A Muslim man can divorce his wife simply by stating it to be so three times.
- A woman’s testimony must be counted half as valuable as a man’s.
- Rape must be proven by four witnesses in spite of other evidence.
- Execution is the punishment for those who leave Islam.
- There can be no criticism of Islam or Mohammad, whatsoever, punishable even to a death sentence.
I believe the greatest threat our nation now faces from Islamic activists is the slow, steady, and systematic implementation of Sharia in our judicial system and the push to openly accept the Islamic faith and their code into American culture by high-level public officials.
Sharia is the radical Islamist vehicle for the overthrow of Western Civilization through the imposition of Islamic law and culture.
At Liberty Counsel, we fight for any Americans’ religious freedom every day. Yet, it seems the more our Christian liberties are being stripped away, the more concessions are being made to those who hold other faiths, especially the Islamic faith.
This is exactly the outcome the Muslim Brotherhood’s “civilization jihad” hopes to achieve.
This is a totally unacceptable double standard – we will not bow to Sharia or stand idly by and watch this religion and its legal code permeate and distort our nation’s laws. Our Constitution and the Judeo-Christian principles of law it expresses make up the very foundation upon which Western Civilization stands.
185 Churches burned this week
The news of the apprehension of ten Islamic militants trying to cross our border came on the heels of other reports that the Islamist group Boko Haram has burned 185 churches in Liberia. Boko Haram is among the most violent of Islamist jihadists who are also responsible for the kidnapping of over 200 school-aged girls in April of this year.
Any nation under the control of fundamental Islamic ideologies, as mandated by Sharia, can count on a similar fate as the helpless citizens of Liberia. Every American needs to know how much danger we face from “homegrown” and infiltrating Islamic forces. And we need to know sooner than later!
Help Liberty Counsel sound the alarm and expose this escalating threat. Please sign our powerful “open letter” to help put pressure on Congress and Homeland Security officials to expose and stop the increasing number of Islamists operating in our midst – and to secure our nation’s borders as a vital act of national security.
