Re: Consideration of a Mosque in Your Community

Dear Sir,

I do not live in your community, but I have concerns about intolerance in America.

Islam is a total life-encompassing doctrine, addressing cultural and religious matters as well as political issues that is governed by Islamic sharia law, a law based on the koran, sira and hadith (the biography and traditions of Mohammed, or “sunnah”).

It must be recognized that the theo-political doctrine of Islam makes the attainment of political objectives a religious duty. The political objective is to bring the entire world under the “divine” law of sharia; to eradicate man-made law. And according to Islam, sharia is applied to both Muslims and non-Muslims.

The theo-political doctrine of Islam fully implemented under sharia law, consistent with the koran and sunnah, condemns freedom (of speech, religion, association, press, petition of government), forbids equality (between men and women, Muslims and non-Muslims) and denies traditional sovereignty (national boundaries based on language, culture and shared history). In sum, sharia violates our cultural values as well as our laws.

So, the thrust of my comment is that bringing a mosque into your community will inevitably bring sharia, including elements of sharia that are inconsistent and irreconcilably in conflict with the US Constitution and your state constitution, and will not simply be offensive to your community, but be destructive of it.

This message is not borne of bigotry, racism or hatred, only a concern that our great nation will continue to be a haven for human liberty.

One Response to Re: Consideration of a Mosque in Your Community

  1. Who said this? When?
    “The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every musselman [muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

    This statement was a part of a March 28, 1786, letter from John Adams and Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, the United States Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Continental Congress, concerning their conversation with the Tripoli ambassador as to why his pirates/terrorists hijacked our merchant ships, stole the ships and cargo while holding the sailors for ransom.
    ? Here are the main points:
    a. “it was founded on the Laws of their prophet”;
    b. “that it was written in their Koran”;
    c. “that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners”;
    d. “that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and”;
    e. “to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and”;
    f. “that every musselman [muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
