Shadow of Crisis

Today, I opened an eMail from Senator John McCain. In it he made his pitch for why I should send him money. Since I didn’t watch the State of the Union Address on Tuesday evening something McCain wrote caught my eye. He quoted Obama directly “the shadow of crisis has passed.” Really? These words fall into the same class as “Al Queda is on the run.” Somehow, I do not, nor cannot believe we are out of crisis with Radical Islam. I am one of those people who believe the bad guys will never come to the shores of our great country. Yet, each time I drive by the mosque in my one hundred and sixty-five year old town of Frankfort, Illinois I get the shivers. When I first settled here in 1990, the mosque was a curiosity. I had heard about it, but never saw it because the tiny building hid in the woods along Saint Francis Road. Amazingly, the Muslims decided to build their mosque within a half mile from the Franciscan Retreat Center run by Franciscan Nuns for which the street is named.

Today, the mosque is visible from the road, and sports a golden dome. This new mosque is about five years old and it is thriving. Where did all the muslims come from? My theory is they immigrated here as students in medical schools. Many of them from Pakistan, Iraq, and Egypt. There are thriving medical complexes centered around Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Little Company of Mary Hospital In Evergreen Park, South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest, Saint James Hospital in Olympia Fields, and Chicago Heights.  These hospitals demand a huge staff of doctors and technicians. If you have ever been unlucky enough to have been a patient in any of these places, you are aware that there is a large population of Doctors from the Mid-Eastern countries. Many of them are muslim.

One day, as I drove down Aberdeen Road on my way home from work, I passed by the Hussein house. An elderly white-haired, bearded gentleman was walking around the property hands behind his back, and dressed in white Muslim garb. It turns out that Dr. Hussein who lived there brought his parents to America to live with him. His story has repeated thousands of times across the Chicago area, and  has resulted in a significant muslim population. Add to this population the many refugees coming from Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and every other Mid-Eastern country and the muslims grow in numbers exponentially.

So what does all my bloviating have to do with the President’s remark? I fear that one of these many peace-loving muslims will radicalize and cut my head off.

Obama has no clue about how to treat muslims. They have been a warring people from the beginning of recorded history, and they respond only to one kind of governance, War Lords and Dictators. How do War Lords and Dictators rule? By force. He who cuts the most heads off is the guy in charge.

What Do I Know?

The cartoon is my opinion, but what do I know?

Let me know were my logic fails.

An Appropriate Solution

Don’t you think everyone would quit complaining if it was announced that the Jews and Christians were going to build places of worship right next to the new Ground Zero Mosque. The Muslims would probably change their plans knowing the Jews were there, and the Christians would be singing hallelujah.

Is It a Religion or a Political Ideology?

     I have a problem with the Muslims building a Mosque at Ground Zero. It is a stupid move designed to show us that Muslims are going to convert we the infidels, and they have begun the process. It is something called Dhimmitude. The real problem I have with the mosque is they have a right to do it. The very first sentence in the first amendment to the constitution specifically states

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof:”

that Islam is a religion, then the boilerplate readings give it a tone of peace and love. So, why then are the extremists such hateful, revengeful, and ruthless killers of non-Muslims?

     I believe it goes to the fact that Islam is also a political ideology. They start by feeding the lovey, peacey thing and evolve into the power over all men “do as I say” thing. All across the Mid-East are countries whose politics are Islamic, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, Liberia, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey, and a few I left out. Egypt and Turkey pretend to be secular, but can turn into Islamic states overnight.

     The one tenet of Islam that is scary, is a thing called Sharia law. The religion declares there is but one set of laws that count, those of God. Sharia is that law in their eyes. What that means is that Muslim believers can only live by one set of laws, and that is Sharia. Be damned if the USA has a Constitution and is a Nation of Laws, they do not give a shit. The end-result is that the religion dictates how they want to live in a country. Once they begin lobbying for their own set of laws to dictate to the rest of us they are a political entity.

My logic goes like this:

Islam is a religion

Religion is not politics

Therefore, Islam is not political.

On the other hand, if I use this logic something different comes out.

Islam follows Sharia Law

Sharia Law rules all

Therefore, Islam rules all.

     Both of these theorems are true. The dilemma here is that there is a conflict between the two tenets of Islam and our Constitution. It is my opinion that Islam cannot co-exist peacefully in the United States of America if Muslims continue to believe that Sharia law is integral to their beliefs. On the other hand, if they adopt US Law as the dominant law of the land, and denounce Sharia, they have the same rights as any other US citizen.

     A Muslim who continues to embrace Sharia as the only true law will be in constant conflict with his principles and as such presents a threat to the tranquility of the non-Muslim citizenry.

     The preamble to the Constitution:

     We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.

     Can the US meld the Sharia law into the US Justice System? If so, then Justice and Tranquility might be possible. If, the two are in conflict events will arise that destroy the domestic tranquility. We will have a country within a country. Two sets of rules on the same street, same town, and same state. Do we invent Muslim police to enforce Sharia law, and our regular police to enforce US law? How would that work? If I commit adultery, and I am a Muslim, Sharia defines it as a crime and defines the punishment. It is quite different from US law. The country will tear itself apart much the same way, as it did when half of us owned slaves and half did not.

     We cannot, we must not, allow Islam to practice in the USA and expect the country to remain united.
