Liberals Implode After Former Muslim Speaks To Senate, Educating Them On “Islamism”
Many on the left refuse to speak honestly about Islam. Some even go so far as to say Sharia law is consistent with our country’s constitution. Fortunately, some recognize just how absurd this is and are starting to speak up.
For example, just recently, an ex-Muslim woman recently met with Senators to talk about “political Islam.” She told them bluntly that it is not compatible with the constitution and criticized them for not effectively combating what she insists is an extremely dangerous ideology.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Muslim who underwent female genital mutilation (FGM) as a young girl and experienced “honor violence,” testified against Michael E. Leiter, the Former Director of the National Counterterrorism Center earlier this week. According to Leiter, “Muslim’s honoring of Sharia is not inherently in tangent with living in constitutional democracies anymore than it would be for Christians or Jews who also seek to honor their religious traditions while still complying with civil authority.”
However, Ali, who is extremely familiar with Sharia law, argued the exact opposite in her written testimony. “The Islamists’ program is fundamentally incompatible with the U.S. Constitution, religious tolerance, the equality of men and women, the tolerance of different sexual orientations, the ban on cruel and unusual punishment and other fundamental human rights,” stated Ali, noting, “[it] implies a constitutional order fundamentally incompatible with the US Constitution and with the ‘constitution of liberty’ that is the foundation of the American way of life.”
To clarify, Ali stated that political Islam, also known as “Islamism,” seeks to destroy democratic institutions and replace them with theocratic ones using a combination of nonviolent tactics, like “dawah,” and violent tactics, like suicide bombings. “The term ‘dawah’ refers to activities carried out by Islamists to win adherents and enlist them in a campaign to impose sharia law on all societies. ‘Dawah’ is not the Islamic equivalent of religious proselytizing, although it is often disguised as such by blending humanitarian activities with subversive political activities,” explained Ali. “The ultimate goal of ‘dawah’ is to destroy the political institutions of a free society and replace them with strict sharia. Islamists rely on both violent and nonviolent means to achieve their objectives,” she added.
