Sharia law, or simply Sharia or, in Arabic, شريعة Šarīʿa, is a complex set of rules for Muslims transmitted by Allah. However, any comparisons to the Christian Bible would be tantamount to comparing our Bible to eternal truths within “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”
According to Wikipedia, “Muslims believe all Sharia is derived from two primary sources, the divine revelations set forth in the Qur’an, and the sayings and example set by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. . . [and subject to] the consensus of the religious scholars” and Islamic jurists who interpret Sharia.
“The imam [the position held by the Ground Zero monster-mosque-builder Feisel Abdul Rauf] has varying responsibilities depending on the interpretation of Sharia . . . leader of communal prayers, . . . scholar, religious leader or political leader. Sharia deals with many topics addressed by secular law, including crime, politics and economics, as well as personal matters such as sexuality, hygiene, diet, prayer, and fasting.”
In a nutshell, Sharia represents the words Muslims live by, necessarily updated to reflect the passage of fourteen hundred years since the holy Prophet Muhammad passed to his reward no doubt stll in the loving arms of his child bride Aisha, whom he took to his holy marital bed when she was all of eight years old and who was just one of his 13 wives and concubines.
Despite all the updating and interpretation over fourteen centuries, things really haven’t changed an awful lot for Muslims, and even less so for Muslim women.
Now considered an Islamic apostate by her religion since she chose to resign her commission in the Muslim faith, Darwash now qualifies for the same Sharia retribution planned for Salman Rushdie, namely, being stoned to death or otherwise dispatched from this Earth for the impertinence of angering Allah and abandoning Islam.
Author of Cruel and Unusual Punishment: the Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law, Darwash spelled out the cruel and unusual punishments and terrifying realities for the lives of women living–a better term might be barely existing–under Sharia in an article entitled, “Joys of Muslim Women.”
Excerpts from her article are included in, “So You Want Sharia Law in the United States–You Think They Won’t Institute this Here?” on Sodahead.com: http://tiny.cc/e0sxt
The “Joys” title very possibly could be sarcastic since Darwash reveals the joys of Muslim women are few and far between, even if most brainwashed Muslim women would be among the first to raise boulders to splatter Darwash’s brains in the nearest gutter because of her apostasy.
Among the “joys” the apostate lists:
. In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child, consummating the marriage by 9. The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.”
. “Even though a woman is abused, she can not obtain a divorce. To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses. Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives ‘at will’ and the man does not have to say why he has beaten her.”
. “The husband is permitted to have 4 wives and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.”
The Sodahead piece goes on to discuss Nonie Darwash’s views on Muslim designs on America, the same designs Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf has for our country.
It concludes with a comment that should wake up any Americans who are unable to connect the multitudinous dots: “While America is getting rid of Christianity from all public sites and erasing God from the lives of children the Muslims are planning a great jihad on America.”
Think it can’t happen here? September 11th, 2001 also couldn’t happen here, but it did.
