WHAT IS WRONG WITH SHARIA LAW?
by Rick Joyner
With the massive demonstrations threatening to topple the government in Egypt and several other Muslim nations in the Middle East, a great concern for the rest of the world has been the potential for The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) to seize power. Until recently little was known or understood about the shadowy MB in America and much of the west, but in the last few years it has been the subject of so many articles, books, and lectures that it is now becoming very well known, and understood. This awareness has gone up very dramatically in just the last couple of weeks with its almost constant mention on the news in relation to the meltdown taking place in Egypt.
The MB has always been bold and up front about its purpose to establish a new caliphate, and it’s mission statement was very clear about their intention to destroy America and the rest of the “rotten” western civilization in order to subdue the world to Islam, and to impose Sharia law. The now famous and alarming “U.S. vs The Holy Land Foundation” trial in U.S. Federal Court well established these and other alarming facts about the MB and Sharia, with the MB being understood to be the “mother-ship” of virtually every Muslim terrorist organization, including Al Queda and Hamas.
This is now becoming virtually general knowledge, but what has been amazing is the way the U.S. media have been calling those who have proclaimed the dangers of the MB, or Sharia such things as “Islamophobic,” or “right wing extremists.” Are they?
First, not all Muslims hold to the purposes of the MB, and most Muslims do not want to live under Sharia law, and are as horrified by the terrible things done in the name of Sharia as the rest of us, and some maybe more so since it reflects so terribly on their own faith. Even so, with some estimates that the radical jihadist may now compose up to 30% of Muslims, we are the greatest of all fools if we do not seek understanding of both the MB and Sharia.
There are now almost daily examples in the news about “honor killings” and other examples of Sharia. The following story was just posted on AOL News.
Alleged Rape Victim, 14, Dies After Public Flogging in Bangladesh
Feb 3, 2011 – 7:01 PM - AOL News
A 14-year-old Bangladeshi girl allegedly raped by a much older cousin has died after being publicly flogged for adultery, media reports said.
Hena Begum was sentenced to receive 100 lashes by a village council made up of elders and Muslim clerics in the district of Shariatpur, about 35 miles from the capital, Dhaka, the BBC said today.
She endured about 80 lashes before collapsing Monday, according to The Daily Star, a Bangladeshi newspaper. Her family took her to a hospital, where she died.
"What sort of justice is this? My daughter has been beaten to death in the name of justice. If it had been a proper court then my daughter would not have died," Dorbesh Khan, the girl's father, told the BBC.
Family members said Hena was raped by a 40-year-old married cousin, The Daily Star said. The man's family beat up the teen, then accused of her adultery, the newspaper said.
The very next day, she was sentenced to the flogging in a fatwa, or religious ruling, issued by the village council under Islamic Shariah law, the BBC said. Her father was also told pay a fine of about $700, police told the BBC.
Four people, including a Muslim cleric, have been arrested in connection with Hena's death, the BBC said. Police said they were looking for another 14 people in the case.
Bangladesh's high court has ordered district officials in Shariatpur to explain why they did not protect the girl, The Daily Star said. The court ruled eight months ago that Shariah punishment was illegal.
In December, a 40-year-old woman in Rajshahi district died after she was publicly caned for allegedly carrying on an affair with her stepson.
What kind of justice is it when a 14 year old girl gets raped, and because the rapist is a married man she is beaten to death for adultery? This is an example of Sharia, and the most shocking thing of all is why the media, and especially every women’s organization in the world that truly cares about the rights of women, or human rights, are not sounding the alarm daily about Sharia.
There are almost daily news reports now about “honor killings,” the torture by stoning of adulterers, and homosexuals, that should have everyone who truly cares about justice, and human rights, devoted to understanding Sharia. Those who are challenging it and sounding the alarm are not “Islamophobic,” or “right wing extremists, but are those who really care about justice and human rights.
