I've been pushing that the idxeology of Sharia is the problem - not the religion of Islam

Reader comment on item: Trump: You Should Ban Islamists, Not Muslims

Submitted by DrRJP (United States), Dec 11, 2015 at 15:21

It's the same approach as yours but the public would struggle in understanding the concept of Islamist. Islam and Islamist are non sequiturs without Sharia. It is the Sharia that commands Muslims to kill non-Muslims. Sharia-compliant Muslims makes more sense and is more understandable than is "Islamist."

Here's a parallel: The Democrat Party is the name of their political party - but their IDEOLOGY IS STATISM, MARXISM, AND COMMUNISM. It is to Balkanize America, to split people into competing groups and turn one to another. It is their ideology that is destroying America and making terrorist attacks a certainty.

Also a certainty is a that Obama is a Muslim Brotherhood figurehead. To say that Obama can't be a Muslim is ludicrous. It takes the recital of 20 words of the shahada for someone to convert to Islam. Obama is wearing a gold ring where the outside is the first. part of the shahada Obama has sided with the caliphate. He created ISIS. He armed ISIS. He refuses to destroy ISIS or any other Islamic terrorist group. He refuses to conflate terrorism with Islam when the Koran calls for "instilling terror in the hearts of the unbelievers." Take religion out of the equation.

Talk about the ideology of Sharia and how every part of it is the antithesis of the Constitution and Judeo-Christian values. If Islam had a Ten Commandments, it would be an anti-Ten Commandments where every one has been flipped on its head. Trump needs to explain to America what is Sharia, as I hjave, so that they understand we are not discriminating against any religion.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Joy Brighton wrote a book on the topic of what Sharia-ism. It's an interesting idea but I prefer to focus on Islam.

Many of your assertions, especially about Obama, are very dubious.
