Dick Morris: the enemy is sharia, not Islam

How much longer must we be tortured with this mental diarrhea?

“Islam is peace”- George W. Bush

“We will never be at war with Islam” -Hussein Obama

“The enemy is Al Qaeda, not Islam”

I let you sort it out, Dick.

Raymond Ibrahim: Is Sharia a “hopelessly abstract concept”?

In “Is Newt Gingrich Wrong to Talk About Sharia?” in Pajamas Media (viaRaymondIbrahim.com), August 24, our friend Raymond Ibrahim discusses whether Sharia, as Lee Smith recently characterized it, is a “hopelessly abstract concept”:

In a recent article appearing in Tablet, Lee Smith takes former House speaker Newt Gingrich to task for the latter’s focus on sharia (i.e., Islamic law). The thrust of Smith’s argument is that sharia is a “hopelessly abstract concept” and “a highly idealized version of reality that has little basis in fact”; that sharia is “a catchall phrase for legal principles that have rarely, if ever, existed in actual Muslim societies”; and that “the notion that something called ‘sharia’ was widely imposed throughout the lands of Islam is an Orientalist fantasy.”My first observation is — even if all these charges were perfectly true — so? It hardly matters what sharia really is; all that matters is what today’s Muslims believe it is. And a great many believe sharia is tangible and codified, and that it can, and should, be implemented in society. More to the point, telling the apostate or adulteress — who are regularly executed “according to sharia”– that they are reallybeing murdered by “principles that have rarely, if ever, existed in actual Muslim societies,” is hardly reassuring.

Smith does acknowledge Islam’s famous draconian punishments; he just prefers to call them hudud, and limits them to “Islamist outfits like the Taliban.” Similarly, Smith offers a blitz tour on Islamic jurisprudence — including the Hanbali, Hanafi, Maliki, and Shafi’i madhahib, the differences between usuli and akhbari, fiqh,ijma, ‘aql, qiyas, and ahkam sultaniyya — even as the reader wonders how these concepts are relevant to the discussion at hand: Islam in America, from a national security context….

  1. Duh, Islam is about submitting to Allah and proving it by erecting Sharia in every territory on Earth, first you start the five times daily prayers then we’ll discuss specifics. Sorry, no easy way to cut Islam down to size to lick it on some street corner. So how long have you been a cop, officer Mc, er, maam?

    Keep up with the world stream free with the Historyscoper:

  2. Seems like Dick Morris is an aptly named “Dick Head’ just where does he think Shariah comes from THIN AIR?????
    The total sublime gullible naive ignorance of moonbat talking heads never ceases to amaze me.

  3. Dick Morris may have a point about Sharia. Islam is composed of the Koran, the Sira or biography of Muhammad and the Hadiths. Without any one of them Islam doesn’t make sense not that even with the three it makes sense to a discerning human being. If you allow the Muslims to believe in anything they want but forbid them practicing or imposing Sharia you remove much of virulence and vehemence of Islam. It’s like if you remove one side of a triangle, the triangle comes to a miserable end. Maybe worth pursuing.

  4. Yes & no, Gerald.

    Nothing changes the fact that Islam is at war with us, which is an Islamic mandate in perpetuity. It is also an Islamic mandate to remove all obstacles to sharia, even in Islamic countries where the sharia was dormant for decades, but never eradicated, not even in Turkey or in the Islamic states of the former Russian union.

    You don’t get Islam without sharia, you don’t get moderate Muslims, (not unless they are apostates and discard the religion they are born into) and none of it is compatible with a free democratic society, equality of the sexes, non discrimination between believers and unbelievers (dhimmitude) equality under the law etc etc.

    Islam itself is no different from a gigantic criminal organization, the jiziya is an extortion racket of monumental proportions and if it was not cloaked in the guise of a religion it would have been dismantled or eradicated long ago.

    I know Dick Morris personally, he used to work for Bill Clinton and knows a lot about American politics. But he doesn’t know much about Islam. He made a fool of himself and I let him know.

  5. The enemy is allah, in direct opposition to the biblical God. allah will be defeated along with its followers, no matter how much acid they throw, or heads they lop off. They are doomed. Those who play the harlot with islam & allah may well get burnt, literally.

  6. ISLAM is a national security issue of the greatest magnitude. The very survival of America depends on banning ALL aspects of Islam and sharia from the land. Islam is anathema. The enemy IS the Islamic “religion” . Because Islam has never been a “religion”,the fact that they are being given protections under the first amendment that they atr NOT entitled to is illegal. Islamists are hiding behind our constitution. Don’t let them do it:

  7. mullahlodabullah & robert laity:
    Exactly. Despite all the toadying, spin and political correctness, at the end of the day it boils down to freedom good, islam bad. We need to forthwith trash the politically correct regurgitations of the know-nothing beautiful new-age lefties and get on with the job of repatriating all the treacherous disciples of the great paedophile whom we have so foolishly and naïvely permitted to infest our tolerant and democratic countries.
    The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Wish I’d said that.

  8. Here is some basic information. The Egyptians worshiped RA the sun god and Allah the moon god. The allah the muslims worship is the moon, hence allah is no god at all.
    The definition or expanded form of muslim/s is MOST UNWANTED SCUM/SWINE/SHIT BAGS LIVING IN MAINSTREAM SOCIETIES.
    It is obvious Dick Morris is trying to suck up to the muslims due to fear. He is rightly named ‘Dick Head’.

  9. Actually, Islam is not at war with the West. It was the West that colonized Muslim countries for 200 years. It was Winston Churchill’s British air-force which dropped chemical weapons on Iraqis and then he said that “it would teach those ni**ers the superiority of the British race.” It was the USA that overthrew Iran’s democracy and replaced it with a dictator in 1953. It was the USA which bombed Iraq and put sanctions on it. The UN reported that 500,000 Iraqi children died as a result of the US actions. For example, the US bombed the sewage treatment facilities which led to wide spread cholera, but then forbade Iraq from importing chlorine to clean its water. It was the West that created Israel on land where the Palestinians were living and brought on 60 years of relentless persecution against the Palestinians. According to a respected medical journal known as the Lancet, the US invasion of Iraq led to the deaths of tens of thousands of Iraqis. Even now the US is bombing civilians in Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan. The list is seemingly endless. The only violence that Muslims are committing is in reaction to the violence that the West initiated. As for Shariah, it is only for countries with majority Muslim populations. I study the Quran and Hadith very frequently, and I am frequently seeing how anti-Muslim people are taking verses of the Quran out of context in order to make excuses for murdering Muslims, and then blaming the violence on Muslims. It is a disgusting behavior and it increases my faith in Islam to see that the anti-Muslims are forced to rely on distorting Islam in order to argue against it.

  10. Obviously, you are an ignorant Muslim fool because you don’t seem to know what your ‘religion’ teaches:

    Muslim:C9B1N31 “I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify to the fact that there is no god but Allah…..

    About America:

    In 1786, Jefferson, then the American ambassador to France, and Adams, then the American ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the “Dey of Algiers” ambassador to Britain.

    The Americans wanted to negotiate a peace treaty based on Congress’ vote to appease. (the Muslims)

    During the meeting Jefferson and Adams asked the Dey’s ambassador why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

    In a later meeting with the American Congress, the two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

    Get your Koran in context before you come back!
