What’s Wrong With Sharia Law?

Do you know the craziest thing about all the efforts North American non-Muslims are undertaking to prevent North America’s Muslims from bringing Sharia Law to North America?
Islamically, there’s actually no such thing as Sharia Law in the first place.
But all those efforts, and all the confusion that surrounds them, make us wonder whether we Muslims who live here will eventually have to make what we consider a false choice, between our country and our religion.
Because the simple truth is, to most Muslims, for everything other than what we consider the “5 pillar items” like our declaration of faith, our charity, our prayers, our pilgrimage and our fasting in Ramadan, rather than a rigidly fixed set of laws, al-Sharia, “the path to the water hole” is a set of principles (principles like equality [like men and women are equal?], justice, and the importance of linking rights to responsibilities and risks to rewards) promoting a set of simple practices (like living humbly, serving God and minding your own business) that Muslims believe are divinely ordained and therefore perfect. And so we also believe that if they were followed perfectly that would give us a perfect world. [And is this remotely possible or are we hoping for an unreachable utopia?] >>> READ MORE
Contrast this with the REALITY of what is happening the the world. Every place there is internal nation violence and unrest, Islam is in the center. For a religion that claims to be peaceful, the evidence clearly says otherwise!!!

Though Osama bin Laden is dead and much of al-Qaeda’s leadership has met a similar fate, the global impact of Islamic extremists reaches far beyond the ranks of al-Qaeda.
The Muslim Brotherhood in particular, having been in operation for close to a century, is of distinct concern to many U.S. lawmakers.
With a motto of: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope,“ and a commitment by some of its members to ”[destroy] Western civilization from within,” some politicians are demanding to know the depth of U.S. involvement with the organization– particularly within our intelligence community.
On June 13, five members of Congress including Michele Bachmann (MN-06), Trent Franks (AZ-02), Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Tom Rooney (FL-16) and Lynn Westmoreland (GA-03) sent distinct letters to the Inspectors General of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and the Department of State with the intention of finding out.
Each letter roughly began:
As you may know, information has recently come to light that raises serious questions about the involvement of organizations and individuals associated with the Muslim Brotherhood in [insert department] activities and policies. Given that the U.S. government has established in federal court that the Muslim Brotherhood’s mission in the United States is “destroying Western civilization from within” — a practice the Brothers call “civilization jihad” — we believe that the apparent involvement of those with such ties raises serious security concerns that warrant your urgent attention.
