Let me begin by saying something some may find quite controversial. To assume that Muslims appreciate and accept the same moral values as those cherished by our Founders is insanity bordering on stupidity. Consider that Islamic cultures embrace and institutionalize such things as the murder of innocents, mutilating little girls, men beating women, and parents training their four year old children to become suicide bombers.
Then consider that we Americans are governed by a Constitution that was designed to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity. On the other hand, Muslims are governed by a constitutional substitute called sharia law. The two are mutually exclusive. You can follow one and not follow the other, but you cannot follow both at the same time.
America’s Declaration of Independence proclaims that governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. In this nation all power comes from the people not from Allah or the Koran. No nation can be governed by two Constitutions; the people will come to respect one and to despise the other.
According to the US Constitution man’s rights are unalienable and come from God. Islam does not believe in self-evident truths, natural law, or personal responsibility. Islam does not advance morality as a concept, for under Islam there is no such thing as objective right or wrong and man’s rights are only government handouts.
Islam is in the process of deconstructing the western world’s traditional freedoms and values because Islam is concerned with license not freedom. It is concerned with establishing a new world order based on sharia law, not justice. That is why there is such a titanic struggle taking place in the world today as to whether future civilizations will be built upon freedom, justice and the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, or the capriciousness of Islam.
It is true that we are not at war with Islam, but it is equally true that Islam is at war with us.
Complicating things further no Muslim, including so-called Muslim Moderates, can or will dispute that the Koran approves of deliberately deceiving non-Muslims and telling them lies whenever it advances the Muslim cause. So is it possible to believe and rely on anything that a Muslim says or a Muslim state agrees to? Not hardly! That is why today the world stands at the brink of a cultural and religious abyss.
For example, Muslims declare Islam to be a “religion of peace.” Yet the facts are that according to Islam there can be no peace until all nations accept Islam as the one and only religion. That is, Islam says peace comes to the earth only when all the world’s nations surrender their sovereignty to serving Islam. That will never happen.
So as a practical matter, how can Israel enter into and honor a peace treaty with the Palestinians when that treaty may be based on deliberate lies? How can the United Nations believe that Iran will not further develop and increase its nuclear arsenal just because it signs an agreement saying that it will not?
Our Founders believed that American citizens had a God given right, rooted in self-government, to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Muslims do not share such beliefs. They see man’s rights not as self-evident, but as entitlements from Allah and as the poet said, “East is east and west is west and never the twain shall meet.”
