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.
