Forget our Constitution. A New Jersey Imam wants to replace it with Sharia Law…for the “good of society”.
Mohammad Qatanani, an Imam of one of the largest mosques in New Jersey, has declared that anyone criticizing Islam is a direct threat to our national security. He believes that “America should disregard its First Amendment…and instead act in accordance with sharia law for the ultimate ‘good’ of society“. Therefore, anyone suspected of speaking negatively of Islam or the Prophet Mohammad should be investigated by the Department of Homeland Security. But, of course, if you want to cheer for the complete annihilation of Israel, I’m sure that would be allowed.
There are religions that promote turning the other cheek even when mocked, but it appears Islam is not one of them. According to one of the most prominent imams in North America, Islam never condones violence, but it also, under no uncertain terms, “everaccepts” speaking ill of the Prophet Muhammad.
In fact, so grave is mockery of the prophet considered, that the cleric – Mohammad Qatanani, who leads one of the largest mosques in New Jersey – even believes free speech that criticizes Islam poses a national security threat to the U.S. and that those responsible should be investigated by the Department of Homeland Security.
“We, as Americans, have to put limits and borders [on] freedom of speech,” Qatanani, leader of the Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPC), told TheBlaze. He explained that while Americans may ”have the freedom“ to speak their mind, ultimately, they “have no right to [talk about Muslim] holy issues“ as it will incite ”hatred or war among people.”
Qatanani said he thinks agitators who slander Islam, or, more specifically, the Prophet Muhammad, incite violence and hence, pose a national security risk that threatens the safety of Americans at home and abroad. Thus, America should disregard its First Amendment as it is typically applied and instead act in accordance with sharia law for the ultimate “good” of society.
History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid.
Or antagonistic. As Ray Wisher said, “[Obama]’s playing with fire, standing in the middle of a dozen open cans of jet fuel and dynamite.”
The voters must take away his matches in November.
