Today there is an event outside of the White House calling for Sharia Law to be brought to America and for the re-establishment of the Khalifah.
The rally is being spearheaded by radical UK Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary, who recently told Sean Hannity Americans are “the biggest criminals in the world today,“ and in October announced ”the flag of Islam will one day fly over the White House.” His group, Islam4UK, has been outlawed in Britain.This is a video of Gretchen Carlson from Fox interviewing Anjem Choudary about the event:
“We hereby call upon the Muslims in the US, particularly in New York, Michigan, Chicago and Washington DC to take lessons from their Muslim brothers and sisters in North Africa and the Middle East and rise to implement the Shari’ah in America,” the group Shariah4America, seemingly modeled after Choudary’s UK organization, says on its website.
According to the article:
...the choice of March 3 for the Sharia rally isn’t as obvious. Sharia4America explains:* Translation by TCL
The 3rd of March is overlooked by many as an insignificant day of the year. However, this particular day should not be overlooked by the Muslims without serious contemplation.#On this day, in 1924, the Khilafah (Islamic State) was abolished by Mustafa Kamal Attaturk with the help of the British and European collaborators. It was a catastrophic day when the light of Islam was dimmed and its implementation removed from our lives, leaving the Ummah (*nation or community) bare and defenceless against the onslaught of the Kuffar (*infidels).
What’s the resolution to this action? The answer, the site says, is simple: “The Khilafah is the means to implement Islam with all of its values, outlook, culture and legislation. This is defined by Allah (swt), the Sovereign.”
“We call upon the Ummah to begin working for the re-establishment of the Khilafah so that our lands would be transformed into Dar-ul-Islam (*house of Islam).“
God Bless America. It is only because of our freedoms that we allow slime like Anjem Choudary into our country to spew his hatred and lies at the foot of our White House. Mr. Choudary plans to fly the flag of Islam over that White House one day.
It is my belief that the weakness shown by the Obama Administration has emboldened a man like Choudary to dare come to our shores and call upon Muslims to begin working for the "re-establishment of the Khilafah" and for the "implementation of Sharia in America".
I wonder how many American Muslims will show up for this rally.
In a related article at The Blaze:
The group Sharia4America, a site that Choudary links to from his website, wants to put a burkha on the Statue of Liberty, as a temporary fix until they detonate her. Think I'm kidding? Check this out. And here's what they have planned for the White House.
Sounds far out, doesn't it? Their motto is
Communism is Dead...Capitalism is Dying...Islam is the Solution.
The Blaze article questions the site as maybe being a spoof of Choudary's group Islam4UK. If Choudary is linking to them and they are a spoof, wouldn't that be sweet?
UPDATE 1:I did a little more research after receiving this interesting comment from a UK blogger buddy:
banned said...Please be aware that "British" Anjem Choudary is not a cleric or an imam, he has no standing whatsoever among the Moslem comminity in Britain.Looks like Anjem Choudary didn't always live by what he preaches. Here are a few photos from the Mail OnLine of Mr. Choudary from back in the day when he was swilling beer and smoking dope:
UK media built him up as a willing fool and used his extremist rantings to shock and awe the public. USA, do us all a favour and incarcerate his sorry ass for racist hate crime or something.
btw, the Khalifate he seeks is not just the old Ottoman Empire but all territories that were once Moslem (ie much of spain, parts of France and most of south east Europe) and all areas with large Moslem communities such as some cities in France, Germany and UK.
One former friend said: 'I can't keep a straight face when I see "fundamentalist Muslim Anjem Choudary" in the papers attacking the British for drinking or having girlfriends.
'When I knew him, he liked to be called Andy, would often smoke cannabis spliffs all day, and was proud of his ability to down a pint of cider in a couple of seconds.
Why are we allowing this guy into America?
Thanks to banned, I can add this video of Pat Condell telling us all about Andy:
UPDATE 2:Andy Choudary has postponed his rally for Sharia in America. According to The Blaze:
Radical Muslim Cleric Anjem Choudary has postponed his Thursday “Sharia4America” rally in front of the White House. According to a video posted on his website, Choudary blamed a variety of factors for the postponement, including the media “distorting” his message.
“In light of the fact that many people have given us advice from the Muslim community, both in Britain and in America, and from our scholars like Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed and others, that it is better to postpone the call for the Sharia in Washington, outside of the White Hosue today, we will be postponing the protest outside the White House.” Choudary said in the almost 15-minute video.
