By Nonie Darwish
Nonie Darwish lived for thirty years in a majority Muslim kingdom. every thing approximately her life?family, sexuality, hygiene, enterprise, banking, contracts, economics, politics, social matters, everything?was dictated by way of the Islamic legislations code often called Sharia.
But Sharia isn't really staying in majority Muslim international locations. Darwish now lives within the West and brings a caution; the objective of radical Islam is to deliver Sharia legislation to your nation. If that occurs, the material of Western legislation and liberty should be ripped in . lower than Sharia legislation:
- A girl will be overwhelmed for speaking to males who're no longer her relations and flogged for no longer donning a headdress
- Daughters, sisters, and better halves may be legally killed by means of the boys of their family
- Non-Muslims might be beheaded, and their Muslim killers won't obtain the loss of life penalty
- Certain sorts of baby molestation are allowed
- The husband of a "rebellious" spouse can deny her remedy or position her below residence arrest
Think it cannot occur? In 2008, England?once the seat of Western liberty and now the house of many Muslim immigrants?declared that Sharia courts in Britain have the strength of law.
When Muslim populations succeed in as low as 1 or 2 percentage, says Darwish, they start making calls for of the bigger group, resembling foot-level taps for laundry sooner than praying in public colleges, companies, and airports. "Airports in Kansas urban, Phoenix, and Indianapolis are between those that have already put in foot baths for Muslim cab drivers," writes Darwish. those calls for try how a long way Westerners will cross in accommodating the Muslim minority. How a long way will they push? The association of the Islamic convention works to Islamize overseas human rights legislation and practice Sharia "standards" for blasphemy to all international locations. The penalty for blasphemy? Death.
Weaving own adventure including wide documentation and learn, Darwish exposes the proof and divulges the worldwide chance posed by means of Sharia legislation. a person focused on Western rights and liberties ignores her caution and research at their peril.
